About Me

My photo

I am a very lucky woman with a husband and son who are smart, witty and entertaining. Our son, B, attended public school for two years, and then we embarked on a new adventure in the Fall of 2010 - homeschooling. We don't have all the answers, but we know B and this has been the best thing for him. I blog to preserve our stories and our memories, share recipes, vent and ramble on about our crazy, yet blessed, life. Would you care to follow along?

My Made-Up Mexican Dump Recipe

My Made-Up Mexican Dump Recipe
1 cup uncooked quinoa, brown rice or white rice
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 lb ground beef 
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups frozen corn, rinsed or 1 can corn, drained
1/2 Jar of your favorite salsa
Fresh cilantro, rinsed and chopped
Shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese

Cook quinoa or rice according to directions.
In a skillet, cook beef and onion together until beef is cooked through.  Drain off fat.
To the beef/onion mixture, add the cooked quinoa or rice, black beans, corn, salsa to your taste, cilantro and a little water.  Mix it all together, put a lid on it and let it simmer for about 5 minutes to combine the flavors.

Turn off the heat, sprinkled some shredded cheese on top and recover to let the cheese melt.
