Weather ~ Picture of the Day ~ Red Cardinal Bird ~ Layered Nachos Supreme ~ National Teddy Bear Day

 


Good 58º cloudy morning. 



Yesterday, fortunately, we started off with a lot less smoke. Then it came back. We topped at 101º.

So many of us go to trendy restaurants and order Nachos Supreme, but we never think of making them at home. That's about to change! Now that you know how to prepare restaurant-style nachos, you're gonna put them on your home dinner menu. This easy nacho recipe includes layers upon layers of tasy Mexican ingridients you love. Plus, it is super easy to add variety to this recipe by adding and removing ingredients. Too spicy? Skip the jalepenos! Need some protein? Fry up some ground beef and sprinkle it on too.

 

  • 1 (8-ounce) package tortilla chips
  • 1 (16-ounce) can refried beans
  • 1 (1-1/4-ounce) envelope taco seasoning mix
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup guacamole
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 scallions (green onions), thinly sliced
  • 1 medium-sized tomato, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, thinly sliced (optional)

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.  Place tortilla chips in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine refried beans and taco seasoning mix over medium heat, stirring constantly until heated through; spoon over tortilla chips.
  3. Sprinkle cheese over bean mixture and bake 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Dollop with guacamole and sour cream then sprinkle with scallions, tomato, and sliced jalapenos, if desired. Serve immediately.

 

***Serve your Layered Nachos Supreme with salsa and/or sour cream on the side.

On September 9th, National Teddy Bear Day honors the history of one of childhood’s favorite toys. We have all had a special cuddly teddy as a child. Some of us still have our teddy bear from our childhood. No matter what kind of teddy bear you had, the day is a perfect time to celebrate your childhood friend!
In 1902, American President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear cub while hunting in Mississippi. The incident made national news. Clifford Berryman published a cartoon of the event in the Washington Post on November 16th, 1902, and the caricature became an instant classic.
 
The Berryman cartoon of Teddy Roosevelt and the cub inspired New York store owner Morris Michtom. He created a new toy and even had a name in mind. Michtom wrote President Roosevelt to ask permission to name the new toy a “Teddy Bear".
Since the advent of the Teddy Bear, a parade of famous characters followed.
Big Bird from Sesame Street named his Teddy Bear Radar. The lasagna loving cat celebrated on Garfield the Cat Day armed himself with Pooky, his lovable scapegoat. The British invasion of Teddy Bears includes Winnie-the-Pooh and Paddington. In 1981, the Care Bears first became greeting cards. Not long after, they launched into television and toy history.
 
And let’s not forget the Muppet character Fozzie Bear. The lovable and comedic bear endlessly perseveres with one-liners, slapstick and musical comedy.
