Because I suffer from scatterbrain-itis, this is a post that's not really flowing into any cohesiveness, but whatever. Y'all have come to expect my random yakking by now, right?
*Tanya....the Taco Bell-esque (ack....I don't need anybody from Taco Bell telling me I'm ruining their business with my copy cat-ness)...that I make is
1 T chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp drid minced onion
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp onion powder
dash of garlic powder
that's for about 1 pound of hamburger. Double it for 2 pounds, etc.
The first thing I do is measure out the spices in a bowl and mix it together dry so I can have it ready to just pour in...
Then, I cook the hamburger plain (covering it when I'm cooking it makes it come out....softer...more tender, I guess). After it's done and I drain the grease (don't rinse it....some grease is good. I mean....it IS Taco Bell....lol) I put the hamburger in the food processor and pulse it a little to get the texture right. After that, it goes back in the pot, the seasoning gets put in, and then I add water - a 1/2 cup at a time...until it's the consistency you like...I like mine a little soupy.
It is a money saver, but also, it means I don't have to get out of my pajamas to actually go to Taco Bell.
*Jeanie - hahahaha.....my grandma used to make pasty pie all the time! I don't think I want those glued to my hooters, though. Actually, I don't want these glued to my hooters, either. How do you get them off?! (<--warning: that second link is not for kids!)
*Lisa - you should see my dining room table. Covered in laundry. It's the only way I HAVE TO deal with it. If I put it on the couch, I can just walk by it and ignore it for days.
*Marie - really? Are you going to feel awkward when I show up on your doorstep?! I'll bring my Sophie so Mitzie will have a playmate! Also for Marie, who did an entry of what was in her fridge....I am SO nosey and love to see what people have in their refrigerator - but fair is fair....so here's mine:
No big wow factor on the outside.....I love my refrigerator magnets!
and ta daaaaaaaa.....
Shocking that I would have 7 different barbecue sauces, huh?! What's the one (or two) thing in there that you thought "I KNEW she would have that!!"?
