Two way nachos- AKA- Taco Casserole

So, I got the recipe from the Family Circle magazine! And lucky, for me, they have it posted on a website so I don't have to copy it down....again!

Here it is:


I did change a few things...

*We used ground turkey and flavored it with just your basic taco seasoning

*I didn't have baked tortilla chips...

*I would layer all the ingredients 2 times next time I make it!

*To garnish on top we used, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, olives, jalepenos...etc. :-)

The BEST cheesecake EVER!

This is by far one of the best cheesecakes I have ever had the pleasure of making...and eating!
Tatyana requested a 3 Musketeer Cheesecake for her birthday dessert, and so I said absolutely! You want it, I will make it for you! It was sooooooooo good, I felt kind of bad keeping it a secret...
Try it! But please give ME some credit, I did find it for you!

New Year...New Church?

So, Sunday the girls and I attended Mass at Holy Trinity. I'm not sure if it was just 'cause it was the beginning of the new year or...but the church was packed...people had to stand out in the vestibule because there was no more standing room inside the church. This made me especially happy since I arrived 15 minutes early! (Wow, first time I've been on time in a long time!! I was proud of myself!) Anywho, the funny thing about the Deacon's sermon was that it was about priorities. I was so surprised, that I almost laughed out loud when he started! How appropriate for me! I was very excited because it seemed to me that he was speaking JUST to me!
Anyway, it was a relief for me to be back "home". But you know when you've been away from home for a while and then you go back you realize that it is not exactly the same as when you left. Well, this was the same thing. It was very different. Although, I do have to give the choir "props" they sounded great! It will take some getting used to- but it feels good to be home.
And just to clear things up- while I was "away" things were great. But when you are used to things being the same way for 22 years- it's hard to except change.
Prioritizing, is not going to be the easiest thing. But I am certainly going to work very hard at it!
Thanks for the support!

The end of 2009

I feel I have reached a dead end. I have been very grouchy, and irritated lately. This so called "Holiday Season" felt like nothing but a blur to me. I was hoping to enjoy my time off from work, but instead it just turned into more work at home. I did a lot of home made gifts and baking this year. I'm hoping everyone truly appreciates how much hard work it was for me, and how much I do enjoy sharing it with them. But honestly, I know now why everyone else makes lists and buys gifts for each other that they love and care about. It's so they don't loose their minds and drive their families crazy with their insane craziness. I am really hoping to enjoy this week. Because before we know it 2010 will be here, and we will be back in the hustle and bustle of life.
I'm finalizing my 2010 New Years Resolutions:

1. Put God at the top of all priorities
2. Continue to do #1 over and over and over

That basically sums it up. Starting this Sunday, I will be attending Holy Trinity Catholic Church, and will make better "Godly" decisions this year.
I feel that I'm feeling the way I feel because my priorities were not prioritized correctly...

Thanks for reading and keep encouraging me to stay strong, I need it!

So, I'm late...

If you don't know now, then you don't really know me...I'm always late! Late for just about everything! (Ok, not work...at least not too late... :-) )
But better LATE than never right?

Um, lot's of things happening...being sick, H1N1 keeping me home with the kids (not 'cause they had it- I'm so sick of this!), work,work,work...planning Thanksgiving at my parents, pictures, Halloween...seriously...tons going on! Perhaps tomorrow, Veterans Day, I'll update? Nah, who am I kidding, I won't!
Well, until I write again!
