Taco Soup

So I was tagged by Cathy Davidson on her blog to share a favorite recipe. As the mother of three, and also a lady who doesn't really like to cook, I thought I'd share a favorite of ours that is super easy and really good...Taco Soup. This is great when you have to feed a crowd and is a great stand alone dish. Enjoy!

Taco Soup
1 to 1 1/2 lbs. hamburger meat
1 package ranch dressing
1 package taco seasoning
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 can kidney or pinto beans
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream

Brown hamburger meat and mix with the next five ingredients. Simmer until all ingredients have had enough time to cook thoroughly and mix together, usually about 15 to 20 minutes. Top with Fritos, sour cream and cheese.
Now it's your turn! Post a recipe on your blog and then add three names to the end of it. Go to their blog and post a comment letting them know to go to your page and check out your recipe. Then they post their favorite recipe to their page and let three more people know what to do and so on.

Christmas Card Out Takes

It's that time of the year....the time I start totally STRESSING out about Christmas cards and the ever important picture for the card! I use to think it was hard getting a good picture of Georgie. Then came Jack, and getting a picture of the two of them together was even more of a challenge. Then came D, and it is near impossible to get one of the three together! Well, this year I was determined to get things under control and get these cards done early so I can mail them the first of December instead of about three days before Christmas like last year. I am proud to say it only took two "sessions" to get the shot. I thought I'd share a few of my favorite pics from the first attempt....none of which are going to be used for the card. You must wait to see that......
