What a beautiful Sunday! I bought this fabulous coleus plant yesterday at Lowes~ it was marked down to $4. It's just what I needed for my old blue ice cream churn that sits on the front porch by my old concrete chicken...I love that chick!
This is a request post~ for Leslie in Dallas, Texas...Leslie wanted to see my little 4" clay flowerpots edging the flower beds...I told her I would take a photo of it as soon as Milt mowed and cleaned the yard~ that was several days ago...you should see it now...the winds have been blowing 15 to 20 mph. Leaves are everywhere...fall is here!
I like whimsy~ 4" clay flowerpots...
I filled the "once was" bird bath with bird seed and corn cobs. Looks nice and "fallish" with the dried corn...
That little bread you may have seen on the plate with the bowl of taco soup~ it's these..."Good Biscuits". Cute little things aren't they? Doesn't take a lot to make them~ time, ingredients or effort. We love them. So good with butter, real butter, not margarine.
You start out with a box of Bisquick~ measure out 2 cups in a bowl with some of that good butter, 1 stick of butter. Add 1 cup of sour cream.
Doesn't this look very "professional"? Real- biscuit baking like? I had my apron on doing this! I'll be a fabulous grandmother one day....Mika! (I promise you, she'll roll her eyes when she reads this part)... ; - )
Drop the mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls~ Bake at 350 until golden brown....
1 stick butter
2 cups Bisquick Mix
1 cup sour cream
Drop the mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls. Bake @ 350~ until golden brown.
Taco soup that is...now I know everyone probably has a favorite taco soup recipe. This is our favorite~It's finally chilly enough to enjoy a bowl or two! It all goes in one big pot~ simmer until you just can't stand it any more...ENJOY!
OK...I know, I know a clump of raw ground hamburger meat is not very photogenic. But, it- is- what- it- is-...2lbs of it. ; - ) I like to use ground sirloin.
The spices! 1 package of taco seasoning mix~ 1 package Hidden Valley Salad Dressing Mix...
Get your husband to chop one onion... ; - ) thanks Milt
These were already chopped~ I like that, so did Milt. One wonderful 7 oz. can green chilies.
Beansbeans the more you eat...ok, sorry. Two 15 oz. cans pinto beans w/ jalapenos and two 15 oz. cans of corn. With the liquid.
In this one big bowl..two cans of tomato sauce, one can Ro*tel, and one large 28 oz. diced tomatoes...
So there you go...a bowl of taco soup with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream.

Brown hamburger meat along with chopped onions and chopped chillies. Add package of taco seasoning mix and package of Hidden Valley Salad Dressing Mix. Do not drain any liquid from canned vegetables.

I hope everyone had a glorious weekend~ we did. I got my WiTcHY pumpkin arrangement made...I saw this cute idea somewhere the other day on the net~ I changed it up a little bit...I thought, I've got to do this and spell out CHERRY HILL COTTAGE...They had~ COME WITCHY IN... on each pumpkin.
