We went on a family trip to Tractor Supply to get a few things and I had to laugh out load. We were talking to one of the employees and my husband asked where the rope and axes were. She gave me the funniest look like "are you SURE you 're gonna be ok?" TOO FUNNY.
We got home, put the kiddos to nap and walked the property and decided what trees were going to meet Mr Chainsaw. The front is basically done, we are now working on the side. I think in 2 weeks of nap time working we should be able to get it done. Fingers crossed. We even discussed building a small lookout deck together.... We'll see. That is definitely a heat of summer job.
I had planned to make Mexican Skillet for dinner, but realized that we only had one tortilla, so I modified the recipe and came up with something everyone loved. Hubby said "blog it".... HA! So here it goes....
4 cups cooked white rice
1 lb lean ground meat (venison, beef, buffalo, turkey or chicken would all work... we used venison)
1 package taco seasoning
1 15.5 oz can of beans (I used black but you could easily use kidney beans)
1 cup Thick & Chunky salsa (mild or whatever you like)
1 cup water
1 cup Mexican shredded cheese
Brown meat in skillet. Add taco seasoning, beans, salsa & water. Bring to a boil and then simmer until thickens (5-10 mins). Top with cheese and cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 mins or until cheese melts. Serve over 1 cup of rice and put a dollop if sour cream and top with green onions.
