My little nephew turned one year old a few days ago. I still can’t believe how fast he’s growing. Here are pictures from his party which was a ton of fun.
Add onion and beef to a large pot. Cook the beef on medium heat for 5-8 minutes, or until cooked through. Drain and return the beef and onion to the pot.
Add black beans, the entire can of chili, tomato soup, and corn. Bring to a boil and then cover and simmer for at least 10 minutes (the longer, the better if you are not in a hurry)
Top with cheese, sour cream, green onions, salsa, or whatever other topping you’d like. Serve with tortilla or corn chips.
Yum! This recipe was inspired by one from Betty Crocker.
I made a loaf of bread today using yeast and everything!
That might sound trivial to many of you, but this is the first time I’ve ever used yeast. In fact, when I was in Home Economics in the 8th grade, we learned about yeast and had to make pizza crust. But guess who forgot to add the yeast to her crust? So, I’ve literally never used it until today.
Anyhow, I found the recipe on the blog Oddles of Glitter and it looked so delicious I gave it a try right away.
Then I added in 3 cups of flour and kneaded the bread for a couple of minutes. I honestly had no idea what I was doing.
I put the dough in a bowl and let it rise for about an hour. After that, I kneaded it more, shaped it, and laid it in a greased bread pan.
I then heated the oven up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and baked it for 30 minutes.
I waited about 40 minutes for it to cool down before cutting in to it. It was delicious! Oh, don’t forget to add some salt before you bake the dough. I sprinkled some, but it could have used a bit more.
