WOOO HOOOOOO!!!

Thursday, May 05, 2011

I had a big WOO HOO moment yesterday! emoticon

I got new tie-dye shirts for Christmas, but they were a little too small. I was ok with that because I wanted to lose weight (although at that time I wasn't actually making an effort) anyway...I got one of the new too small back then tie-dyes and put it on...IT FIT!! and it even fit well enough to get the attention of my husband (he's usually not that observant)!!

THEN...

I pulled out a pair of denim capris from last summer, put them on...and they were LOOSE. I decided that they were ok to wear...but...by the time I got home a few hours later they were FALLING OFF! you know how denim is...LOL
These capris will be the pants I keep to take pictures with emoticon

this is HUGE for me! it's so exciting to have this kind of progress!

taco soup...mmmmm

Monday, April 25, 2011

this is one of my favorite recipes =) and it's super easy to change it up to whatever you have on hand...

Taco Soup

* 1 lb. ground turkey or lean beef
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 1 (1 oz.) package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
* 1 (1 oz) package Taco Seasoning Mix
* 1 (16 oz.) can pinto beans
* 1 (16 oz) can chili beans (either hot or regular)
* 1 (16 oz) can whole kernel corn
* 1 (16 oz) can black beans
* 1 (8 oz) can Mexican-style tomatoes (ro-tel)
* 1 (8 oz) can diced tomatoes (any flavor)


1. Brown meat & onions and drain.
2. Mix Ranch & Taco seasonings into meat.
3. Add rest of ingredients, undrained to mixture.
4. Simmer 1 hour.

I also add a little more water and some cumin and chili powder…

we like it with cheddar cheese, chopped onions, or some broken Taco shells on top…or chips.

enjoy
