Lastest Cooking Experiment

By now you all know I like to cook. One of the blogs I read, was talking about cooking tortillas. I had never done that and wanted to give it a yesterday I made they are rolled out ready to cook...

The finished product. I only made half a batch (about 9 taco size), since I wasn't sure how they would work. But I have to say, they were very yummy!

While I was at it, I thought I might as well make my own refried beans. So I took some Pinto beans, cooked them in water, added some seasonings (red pepper flake, onions, roasted garlic, salt, etc..) and then smashed them...and cooked them a second time in the pan.

I admit, I don't know if you can take a picture of refried beans and have them look "good" so you will have to trust me, they were very Yummy!

Cooked some ground beef and we had taco night. I have to say, it was a successful experiment. I think next time, I will make more tortillas and make black beans... Yum

New Dining Room

So it only took us 6-10 months to decide what we wanted and take the plunge to have this built. Then it took 2 months for it to arrive. It was so worth the to fill up the hutch and redecorate that room.
