Taco Ring

I have been trying a few new recipes lately. The one that has had rave reviews is the taco ring. I got the recipe at a Pampered Chief party. After I made it the first time JP "gave me permission" to make it again. It is super easy and takes a no time to make, so I thought I would share for anyone that wants something for a change.

1 pound of ground meat (I've tried ground turkey and hamburger. They were both "approved".)
1 package of taco seasoning (Follow the directions on the package, the one I use has 3/4 cup of water)
1/2 cup to a cup of shredded cheese (This just depends on your preference)
2 cans of crescent rolls

Pre-heat the oven to 375
Brown your meat and drain the grease.
While the meat is browning spread the crescent rolls out on a pan. If you have the round stone from Pampered Chief use that, if not a flat sheet will work too. Overlap the big ends around the inside of the stone/pan.
Add in the taco seasoning and water to the pan to cook as if you were going to make tacos.
When the seasoning is done, stir in the cheese.
Scoop the mixture on the big end of the crescent rolls.
Roll the small end over the mixture and tuck it under.
Put the pan in the oven for 15ish minutes till the crescents are done. Really just follow the directions on the crescent roll can.

When the taco ring is done enjoy! I enjoy putting a little ranch on mine, but it is great without it. The ladies at the party put lettuce and tomatoes in the middle of the ring after cooking, just like you would a taco.

Just food thought. Enjoy your weekend! Let me know how you like if you try it!

Crafts and Such

This weather is so driving me nuts! This week we got snow again on Wednesday. Thursday it went away and then today it was nice and pretty outside. They are calling for more snow next week! I'm not sure that it will stick since it's supposed to be in the 50's most of the week, but you never can tell.

This past week I've been a crafting fool! Tiffany and I got a few letters and began doodling. She made a few for some kids that she babysits and I made some for a guy at work. Let me know what you think.

Our sweet Bucky is being a handful! He has found his voice and lost all of his teeth. He is chewing on everything, even gnawing on Gunner's leg or ears. Any sock he finds on the ground ends up in his mouth. From there it becomes a tug-o-war with Gunner!
