If you know me...you know 2 things...
1. I love to bake/cook
2. I love Ree @ The Pioneer Woman (I want to be her when I grow up) She would so be my BFF if she ever met me...I mean I am witty and fun and fun and well....not sure, but I know she would want to be my friend.
Tonight is Taco Night in our house (see Menu Monday)
I will be going chip-taco-less tonight. Tis ok...I will fill up on beef and some lettuce and cheese. I'm low on carbs today and will add some salsa...never you fear.
I am making more taco meat than necessary tonight...I'm using the leftovers for breakfast.
What am I making....? Scrambled eggs with taco meat and cheese. I'm soooo looking forward to the morning.
**Ree's Restaurant Salsa
- 1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes With Juice
- 2 cans (10 Ounce) Rotel (diced Tomatoes And Green Chilies)
- 1/2 cup Chopped Onion (Ree says 1/4 cup...I'd prob even go to 3/4..we love onions here)
- 1 clove Garlic, Minced
- 1 whole Jalapeno, Quartered And Sliced Thin
- 1/4 teaspoon Sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
- 1/2 cup Cilantro (more To Taste!)
- 1/2 whole Lime Juice
Note: this is a very large batch. Recommend using a 12-cup food processor, or you can process the ingredients in batches and then mix everything together in a large mixing bowl.
(note: Add more onions...)
Combine whole tomatoes, Rotel, onion, jalapeno, garlic, sugar, salt, cumin, lime juice, and cilantro in a blender or food processor.
**Someone subscribed my husband to Martha Stewart Living...we have no idea who and I'm not complaining. Last month I got April, May, June, and July's issues. Last week August came. I'm in hog heaven browsing all the great recipes. I usually only have free magazines here...Thanks to Coke Reward pts....Huggies pts....and when I bought the kids school supplies through the school I got a free subscription too. The only ones I have purchased are Southern Living (16 yr subscriber thank you!) and Cooking Light. I had a discounted Semi Homemade w/Sandra Lee, but after it ended the full yr was too pricey and I passed....(regrets)
**Half freeze a bottle of water with Crystal Light to slushie form...boom instant treat.
**I am going to join Leanna over at Thoughts and Whatnots....and have an open floor to questions. I loved reading hers from last year...someone asked if she was flat footed. (Raises hand) I love getting to know people (squinty eyes and all *winks at Leanna*) and thought maybe some of you had questions you wanted to know about.
**Sad sad day today....I need to lower the mattress on R's crib. Now that he's in crawling mode his little head is too high for a momma's comfort. Breaks my ♥ my baby is growing up. Just today after his morning nap....I found his head at the opposite end of the crib. My little mover and shaker...
