Alright folks- I ABSOLUTELY love when someone gives me a recipe I fall in love with :) I have found TWO great recipes this week but one I'm especially excited about b/c it will become a staple in this house!

Tamara Wright my dear dear friend who actually took my position when I left SandRidge gave me this simple easy recipe that maybe everyone else knows about but I sure didn't! Her fiance, Darren told her about it and now it's our favorite :) I LOVE TAMARA- I talk to her almost EVERY day on gmail chat :) LOVE YOU TAM!!!!

Okay so here is the simple directions- Buy a box of Zatarain's Dirty Rice Mix- follow the direction on the back and then throw the mix in heated up white corn tortillas!!! It's that easy. The directions basically tell you to add oil and water, boil it, then add the rice and 1 lb. of beef then simmer for 25 mins. I REALLY liked it. T.J. added some sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese to his and it was really good like that on flour tortillas too but I also just like the plain ole mix with the corn tortillas. I'm sure this can't be really bad for you- especially if you use ground turkey or venison (which I'm sure we'll do)

Alright do ya'll got that? :) Make it this week and let me know what you think.

Here is another DELICIOUS recipe my friend Lindsey sent me- It's Cheeseburger soup and we really enjoyed it with bread on the side!

Aw man :( I just realized you can't copy and paste into this box! Okay well if you want the recipe email me at and I will send you the recipe! :)

Enough about food :) I can't talk about it that much b/c when we get back from OK T.J. and I are going into a healthier lifestyle- we are both gaining weight and need to start the working out and eating better again! :)


It's super cold here but I hear OK is really cold too! It's snowing today and we got 5 inches the other day!!! :) I can't wait to start sledding and show all our videos from that, I'm sure we'll get the dogs on the sleds too! :)

Here shortly I'm going to pick up T.J. at Cornell and we're going to Cooperstown, NY with some friends from church to meet their parents. I'm excited about that! They live on 40 acres and we'll have a great time I'm sure!!

I'll add some videos later- I don't have the time to upload them now!

Love you all!
