Best Ever Taco Soup

Need Something Quick and Yummy for Dinner?
This is an easily made and easily adapted dinner. Dan hates all beans except black so I just substitute one can of black for the 3 of the chili. My kids think this dinner is the best because they can basically make it by themselves!! Added bonus: all three eat it!
Taco Soup:
1 lb. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
3 cans (15 oz) Mexican Style Chili Beans, undrained
1 can (15 oz) whole kernel corn, undrained
1 can ( 15 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (4.5 oz) chopped green chiles
1 envelope (1 1/4 oz) taco seasoning
1 envelope (1 oz) Ranch-style dressing mix
1 1/2 cups water
Toppings: corn chips, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, sour cream, shredded Cheddar
Cook beef and onions in Dutch oven until meat is browned. Drain.
Stir beans and next 7 ingredients into beef mixture; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Spoon into bowls, top with toppings, ENJOY!!

New Year's Resolution


Grayson decided to run away today.

It is not his first attempt (I am a VERY mean mom!!)


But, I realized that I REALLY wanted a picture of this!


Which lead me to make My New Year's Resolution:


I promise I will be more faithful in documenting the emotional turmoil my children experience in their daily lives.


Here we go!!




I was kind enough to remind him to take his coat. He apparently did not need shoes. I told him next time he might want to remember those, too.


I was going to post a video of Grayson describing his horrific ordeal of having the worst mother in the world but it has been uploading since 3:30 this afternoon. It is now 9:45 and I am officially throwing in the towell.

ksl.com - Fire continues to smolder at carpet company

Holy Cow!! You have to watch this link (there is an add right before it comes up). This business is right on the corner of our former townhome. You can see the townhomes in the story...they are referred to as apartments. I couldn't believe this! I hope all friends were safe. I heard that noone was allowed in or out.........
