So who’s watching tonight? do you think there will be anything new raised or just the same old same old back and forth? I think we are going to play a drinking game. Every time a candidate says taxes, economy or american people I am going to drink. Should make things far more interesting. Feel free to play along!

On a less political note. I tried a new recipe for dinner. I’ve goten into the bad habit of making stuff I know the kids will eat. Due to the horrible economy I’m not working as much so I am going to start trying new recipes. My picky son Tyler actually loved this one. Of course, it’s not the healthiest recipe but whatever, I served it with broccoli.

Yields: 6 servings
“A simple meal to whip up in less than an hour that even the kids are sure to love. Layers of seasoned ground beef, corn, tortilla chips and cheese are baked under a layer of Colby cheese. Monterey Jack is also good in place of the Colby cheese.”
1 pound ground beef
1 1/2 cups chunky salsa
1 (10 ounce) can whole kernel corn,
3/4 cup creamy salad dressing (e.g.
Miracle Whip)
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 cups crushed tortilla chips
2 cups Colby cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Place ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring to crumble, until evenly browned. Drain grease. Remove from the heat, and stir the salsa, corn, mayonnaise and chili powder into the beef. In a 2 quart casserole dish, layer the ground beef mixture, tortilla chips and cheese twice, ending with cheese on top.
3. Bake for 20 minutes uncovered in the preheated oven, until cheese is melted and dish is thoroughly heated.

    recipe sounds good. I made a new one tonight as well – garlic bean enchilladas.

    I will be listening to the debate (can’t ever watch these things) and I like the drinking game idea! I’m sure it will be the same old, same old. But I have to listen anyway 🙂

    Recipe sounds good, we opted for homemade potato soup. Drinking game sounds like an idea!!
