Snow ~ Sun ~ Beefy Taco Bake ~ Linda Nantz ~ Cat Tree ~ Cookie Day

Good 32º, very foggy morning.   

Yesterday morning the clouds moved aside a bit and there was snow on the tip top of my mountain!!! It was gone by afternoon.

Then the sun came through. AHHHHHH..... I went out and did a stand in the sun thank God for it, stance... 
It felt soooooooo good on my face!
So, with Taco Tuesday just around the corner (tomorrow!), here is a super easy bake just for that!

Beefy Taco Bake

1# ground beef
1 10oz can condensed tomato soup
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup milk
6 6:-8" flour or corn tortillas cut into 1" pieces
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
Preheat oven to 400º

Coat a 2qt baking dish with cooking spray.
In large skillet brown the beef over med-high heat, stirring until crumbles. Drain and stir in soup, salsa, milk, tortillas, and 1/2 cup cheese. Spoon into baking dish.
Cover and bake 30 minutes, sprinkle with remaining cheese and serve.

National Cookie Day

It’s National Cookie Day! Did you know that the English word "cookie" is derived from the Dutch word "koekje," which means little cake? Dutch bakers used to test oven temperatures on small amounts of batter so that they would not waste the entire cake mix if the temperature wasn't right. It wasn't long before they discovered that these tiny pieces of cooked batter were actually quite tasty!
Cookies come in all different flavors, shapes, and sizes. To celebrate National Cookie Day, bake a few batches of your favorite variety and invite your friends over for a cookie swap with a festive digital invitation! When you use digital invitations instead of paper, you help the Earth by cutting back on excess paper waste.
