Sloppy Tacos…

Sloppy Tacos 

1 lb. ground beef or turkey (we use turkey so it’s a little healthier) 
1 can Wolf brand chili (beans or no beans, your choice) 
1 can Rotel 
16 oz Velveeta 
Flour tortillas 
Sour cream 

Brown the meat. Add the rest. Let it bubble and get all the cheese melted. Serve in flour tortillas as a taco/burrito with sour cream. These are SUPER messy, so have lots of napkins. They’re also amazing reheated as leftovers 


I REALLY thought this was so yummy! I think it would even be good as just dip or nachos!

Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done
Cause baby now we got bad blood

Hey!
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve it
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood

Hey!

Did you have to do this?
I was thinking that you could be trusted
Did you have to ruin what was shining now it’s all rusted
Did you have to hit me?
Where I’m weak baby I couldn’t breathe
And rub it in so deep
Salt in the wound like you’re laughing right at me
Oh, it’s so sad to think about the good times
You and I

Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done
Cause baby now we got bad blood

Hey!
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood
Hey!

Did you think we’d be fine?
Still got scars on my back from your knife
So don’t think it’s in the past
These kind of wounds they last and they last
Now did you think it all through?
All these things will catch up to you
And time can heal but this won’t
So if your coming my way, just don’t
Oh, it’s so sad to think about the good times
You and I

Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done
Cause baby now we got bad blood

Hey!
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood
Hey!

Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that, you live with ghosts
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that, you live with ghosts
If you love like that, blood runs bad

Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done
Cause baby now we got bad blood

Hey!
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood

Cause now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done
Cause baby now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood (HEY!)

And that ladies and gentlemen… is why I LOVE Taylor.

 

GOMI & online bullies…

At the 2:02 mark.

Ellen: And most people that do say mean things, turns out are the cowards and the chickens. People that just stay behind their keyboard.

Shia: Well I think it’s, I wouldn’t even, I think we both suffer from the same thing. Ya know I got into this industry cause like I had this void ya know I’m a kid of abandonment. And uh, and so I thought being good at being an actor would somehow fill that void. And uh uh, well you know entertainment, a lot of entertainers are this way. And so I think, people, it’s really  you just wanna make a mark. So people who are online doing the comments , really just want to make a mark.  They wanna have the effect. So I think we suffer from the same thing which is just a lack of attention and love.

Ellen: Right, well said.  Yeah, I think no matter how you’re reaching for it everybody’s trying to fill themselves up in some way. And you got to do it yourself and you gotta find what it is that makes you feel whole and feel good.

 

Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Here’s another oldie (Oct 19, 2009)  from my Facebook Notes aka…my blog before my blog.

Well…got the recipe from Cooks.com 

and it goes like this…except I added a can of diced potatoes & boiled chicken breasts instead. and…I didn’t know what dried minced onion was…so none of that lol 


EASY CHICKEN POT PIE 

1 package of 2 premade pie crusts 
1 dried minced onion 
1 lb frozen mixed vegetables 
salt and pepper to taste 
4 tablespoons water to steam the vegetables 
1 can of cream of chicken soup 
store-prepared rotisserie chicken 

Choose diced vegetables for even cooking. Peas, carrots, and potatoes make good additions. In a pinch, canned Veg-All style mixtures may be substituted. 
Bake one of the pie crusts according to the packaging directions. Shred the rotisserie chicken with a fork and remove the skin and the bones. Set it aside. 

Pour the vegetables, water, the salt and pepper, and the dried minced onions in a microwave-safe bowl. 

Put the bowl in the microwave until tender. Once the vegetables are done, combine the shredded chicken, the vegetable mixture and the can of cream of chicken soup in a large bowl. Pour the mixture into the cooked pie crust. 

Place the uncooked pie crust on top of the pie and cook on 420°F for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 375°F and continue to bake until lightly golden (about 20-30 more minutes). 


NOW…Danny did eat this & pretended he liked it. ANd it was ok…but kinda dry…if I make this again…I will use this tweaked recipe….

Got the idea & recipe from http://www.mycharmingkids.net/2009/09/rainbow-cake.html Everyone knows how I am a FAITHFULLLLL reader of MckMama’s Blog! 

oh…but i didn’t use the cream cheese frosting recipe…i just got the buttercream in the cans

Haha…you can tell this is OLLLDDD (Oct 11 2009)….MckMama hasn’t had her blog in foreverrrr. And it’s weird to see my old kitchen with no top cabinets or backsplash. You can check out my kitchen before & afters HERE.  Since MckMama’s blog & the recipe is gone…here’s the quick rundown on how to make the cake…I just used white cake mix made according to the box…divide into bowls for each layer & add food coloring. Once cooked & you are putting the cake togethre…you have to freeze/refrigerate the layers as you add them so they will not break apart. 

God lessons through Instagram & twirl.

 

Friday before the girls went out to twirl at the high school pep rally I said a quick prayer asking God to let the girls have a no drop performance.

This pep rally was a huge deal because Sabine doesn’t currently have twirlers and we are trying to reintroduce them to the school and the community and show them we can have great twirlers to be proud of representing our school line. It was an even bigger deal for our girls whose peers (2nd through 5th grade) had come to watch the pep rally. It was very important to make a good impression.

Well, 3 very nervous, but very excited girls went out to do their thing…and had to stand for over a minute in their starting poses because the sound people couldn’t find the CD. The crowd was cheering the whole time and Daynie was standing right next to the football players who were hooting. The music started and Daynie couldn’t hear. Once she realized it had started she rushed to begin and dropped her first trick. She was the very first trick of the routine. All eyes on her. I felt so bad for her but she kept going and finished strong. The music kept fading in and out because something was messed up with the sound system but, the girls didn’t miss a beat and rocked their performance! That was Daynie’s only drop and there were only 3 total drops for the whole routine, which is pretty good for elementary kids. The crowd loved them & it was a huge proud mom moment for us three mommies!

These awesome girls did an amazing job at the high school pep rally today! Even with technical/sound system issues and trouble hearing the music they gave a great performance showing what great little twirlers they are! @blairmax6 @mer0808

A few minutes later, as we were watching the rest of the pep rally, Daynie started crying and saying she didn’t want to go back to school because she was so embarrassed she dropped and was afraid the kids at school would make fun of her. I could barely speak to her to calm her because I didn’t want her to see me cry too. My heart ached for her. For a second, I thought about letting her skip school the rest of the day. But I knew she had an awesome performance and told her she had to go back to school.  

 

While watching the rest of the pep rally, a sweet high school boy in a jersey came over and told her she did good. She was embarrassed and still pouting from the drop, and wouldn’t speak.  After the pep rally, a man ( I think he was a coach) walked over with his wife and told Daynie great job. Daynie just looked at him and muttered a half thank you (because I threatened her life after she didn’t say anything to the football boy)  I apologized to the man and told him that she was upset and embarrassed because she dropped. He assured her that she did amazing and his guys drop the ball all the time.  

On the way out of the gym we passed all her friends from her class and they were calling her name and telling her great job.All the way out kids & parents she didn’t even know told her great job. We ran into her sweet friend Emma. She could tell Daynie was upset and gave her a pep talk. Daynie seemed to perk up. She actually wiped her face from crying & half smiled for a picture.

In the car, I gave her a good talking to about the way she acted. It’s okay to be upset that you messed up, but it’s not okay to be rude to other people because you are upset. I still expect her to use her manners and say thank you.

 

I also want her to realize that not every performance will be perfect, but it is how you finish and carry yourself afterwards that really matters. Because a lot of people, like Daynie, didn’t even realize the music had started, so they weren’t paying attention and missed her drop.  Even the ones that saw it, because the rest of the performance was so good, they forgot about the first drop by the time the girls were done.

After I dropped her back off at the elementary school, I was scrolling through Instagram and I came across this post and it immediately brought me back to my earlier prayer for the girls to have a no drop performance…and then what do ya know….it’s my kid that drops the very first trick of the routine.

 

get-attachment

 

That post, my prayer, & Daynie’s attitude sort of resonated with me all day.

 

After school, Daynie was just happy as could be. I asked her how her day went. She said that a boy in her class actually did make fun of her and told her she had two drops. She argued and said, no I only had one drop. But, everyone else told her good job. Even some 5th graders that she didn’t know. She said I don’t even know how they knew my name, I’m popular now! (let’s not get carried away now lol)  She was so excited telling me about it.  

 

Could it be because her name is on the back of her jersey?!

Could it be because her name is on the back of her jersey?!

I had a feeling that’s how her day would go, and I’m glad I made her go back to school so she could experience that.

 

At church Sunday, a sweet middle schooler ran up to Daynie & said…”Hey was that you that was twirling? You are so good!”  Daynie smiled and said thank you. I’m thankful for that boy and his sweet words, it made Daynie’s day!

 “There are times that God doesn’t give us what we want. But in those cases He speaks to us in ways that are just as valuable as the things we prayed for.”

So looking back, I’m thankful for that drop. It has taught Daynie some very valuable life lessons. And she is for sure going to come out a better person & twirler for it. And this mom learned a few things too ;)  

 

   

 

PS…the girls performed the day before at the middle school pep rally and that night at the 8th grade football game. They did great!
