Organizing is Tiring!

I have had such a busy day! I had an organization bug hit me... I literally worked all day in the girls' room and I am not done. I pulled everything out of their closet and their chest-of-drawers and made a big pile in the middle of the room (which happens to be their bed!). Then I went through all of their clothes and all of their toys, discarding, sorting, finding better ways to store them. It was a true challenge not only because of the sheer magnitude of the job but because I had all 3 of the little ones here to help! I think they are coming off of a Christmas high because they have been grouchy today! Something about all those sweets and presents and twinkling lights. Reality is setting back in! We even had the dreaded " She looked at me!" shriek today. (Ha, I just had this vision of what it would be like in Wal-Mart if all the adult shoppers acted like that...can you imagine the scene? the tug of wars over loaves of bread, chasing each other with the brooms, thro…

Recipe for Those Leftovers

This is a great creation I came up with that really stretches your meat. I have used leftover turkey, chicken, or canned chicken in it. I have not tried it with ham (Tiffany, you and I both found good deals on those spiral hams! :o) but I think it would probably be good. I also think it would be good with ground beef. So here it is. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Soft flour burrito shells
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Shredded cheese of your choice
Chopped meat of your choice

Mix soups and heat. Add cheese and meat. Lay one burrito shell in the bottom of a round casserole dish so that it creates a bowl shape. You want it to stick up a bit larger than your dish so that it crisps up nicely. Spread a little of your mixture across the bottom of the shell. Then continue to stack, alternating burrito shells and the cheesy meat mixture. End with a burrito shell and sprinkle some cheese across the top. Bake at 350 or so until bubbly and edges are browned.
