15 August - 22 August, 2010

"Happy talk, keep talking happy talk.
Talk about things you like to do.
You got to have a dream.
If you don't have a dream,
How you gonna have a dream come true?" from South Pacific

Not in any particular order.

#1  PBS broadcasted the play "SOUTH PACIFIC"  I really enjoyed the production.  And I did not remember the ending, so was happy when it ended...happy:-)

#2  Did you know Wednesday 18 August) was National Thrift Store Day?  I had no idea there was a National Thrift Store Day, but I HAD to celebrate it.  O.K.  It was just lucky.  Leslie was off work and we decided to go to a thrift store to look for a particular book.  On our way home Hilary texted me to tell me.  I did find one thing I was looking for.  Two matching shirts in different sizes.  I will explain why I needed these later :)
Thank-you for going with me Leslie.

#3  Swimming!  (We had to give the pool back on Saturday:(  Welcome home, Michael and Kate and Kids.  Thank-you :)

#4  I read a really good book.  I finished it in 24 hours.  I could not put it away.  I will do my August book reviews next week.  (If you can't wait, just ask.)

#5  We went to my niece's baptism on Saturday.  It was nice to share the day with Kate.  (The dinner was very nice, also.)

#6  DVR!  O.K.  I do like it.  I really like it.  :)

#7  Emily brought home sandwiches from "Village Baker"  mmmm  (She bought them because it was the last week of summer.  Not for me.

#8  The radiator in Doug's car blew up!  No.  I am not happy about that.  But...
I have been working to only use cash.  Each payday I take an amount that I decided on, out of our household account.  I have enough left in the household account to pay to replace the radiator.  Points for me.
 (Of course it could turn out to be wasted money.  It could have happened because of a bad head gasket.  Then we need a new car.  I have not saved that much money in that account.)

#9  We had a great storm Thursday.  I had the windows open to enjoy it.  The thunder just kept rolling.  It smelled wonderful.  I love summer storms.

#10  I tried a new recipe that we really liked.  It is easy and fairly healthy.  It is called Mexican Lasagna, but since it isn't, I am calling it simply, Corn Tortilla Bake.  (Both my daughters-in-law hate casseroles :)  Doug and I like this so much (even the left-overs) that it is going in my "30 Day plan".

adapted from "Vegetarian Times"
Serves 6

1 can black beans (or kidney or pinto)
1 can seasoned tomatoes  (I use Petite diced tomatoes w/ chipotle chilies)
2 cups frozen corn-defrosted
8 corn tortillas
1 1/2 cups monterey jack or colby jack cheese-grated  

In a bowl, combine the beans, tomatoes and corn.
Spray a large square baking dish.  Line with 4 corn tortillas.  (I have mine go up the sides a bit.)  They can over lap.  Spread 1/2 the bean mix over the tortillas.  Sprinkle 1/2 the cheese over.  Top with 4 more corn tortillas, the rest of the bean mix, and then the cheese.  HOW FAST IS THAT?  (Cheap and easy, too.)
Bake at 400* for about 15 mins.  (A little longer if corn is frozen.)
Can serve with sour cream.  This was so quick and good that we forgot the sour cream.

Each serving contains ABOUT
315 calories
15 grams protein
10 grams fat
41 carbs.
25 mg. chol.
8 grams fiber

If you are local to where I live (Salt Lake, UT)  and work on food storage, check out MACEY'S.  This week they have Libby's canned beans and corn priced at 3/$1.oo.  (Only $4.oo for a case of 12.)

Last week I posted a MONTE CRISTO SANDWICH recipe.  I heard that I had (opps! Forgot) not put pictures on.  They are there now.  Sorry.

I think it is hilarious that you were so anti-DVR for so long and all of us knew that you would absolutely love it!
