What's 4 Dinner

Yeah!! Thanks I got a new image for my weekly post! What do you think? Thanks to my good friend Brittany she made it for me. Check out her facebook fan page HERE, she's the owner of French Toast and Bananas on Facebook.

I love it! So today for dinner.... we had Tacos! I switched Firday for Thursday cus we didn't have enough leftovers for dinner. And guess what else... Hubs made dinner! It was one of his dads recipes.

Beefy Tacos (mommy added some cream cheese)

2 lbs of ground beef
Taco seasoning
1/2 grilled onion
4 roma tomatoes
2 cups or hand fulls of lettuce
2-4 tlbs italian dressing
15 corn tortillas
6 tbls vegetable oil (use 2 at a time)
Cooling rack covered with paper towels

  1. Ground the beef. Depending on which beef you use you may want to drain the oil. 
  2. While the beef browns, you can heat up another pan, with 2 tbls oil and then slowly add one tortilla at a time and after about 30 seconds use tongs to fold the tortilla in a taco shape (semi circle). After 15-25 seconds flip it over to toast the other side of the tortilla and take it out after another 15-25 seconds.
  3. Take it out and place another tortilla in the oil (and place the toasted one on top of the paper towels on the cooling rack.
  4. Once the meat is almost all brown add the onion till translucent. 
  5. Then add the taco seasoning & 2 roma tomatoes & stir everything together.
  6. Then dice 2 other tomatoes & chop the lettuce as you'd like and toss it together with the italian dressing and put aside.
  7. Once the onion and tomatoes and cooked down IT'S DONE!
Hub says to get a tortilla open it up, add some lettuce and tomato and take a big bite!! I only wanted to eat two tonight but I ended up eating 4! So yummy! While hubby was making his tacos I just mixed together some corn beans & tomatoes for a quick chili/salad and popped in the microwave for a few minutes & topped with cheddar cheese.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
