Made this recipe the other night (with a few tweaks: organic ground beef, white rice, additional seasoning - especially in the tomato sauce). They were amazing. We're looking forward to making them again with a southwestern flair - spicy peppers and salsa, chili powder and lots and lots of cumin. This is definitely going to be a staple in our house.
Anyone else have a March birthday? I think we really hit the jackpot with such a lovely birthstone! Over the years, I've gotten a few pieces of aquamarine jewelry. Is it just me or does birthstone jewelry seem to be a huge gift for the person you don't know what to get? Anyway, I'm glad it is, because I really adore those pieces.
Feeling better now? Yep, totally! Thanks, Hallie!
And I think I'll take the day off tomorrow. See you Friday!
I went to a conference in Denver last Friday and heard Barbara Nicolosi speak about reviving the role of the Catholic Church in the arts. It was great. You can read a little but about it here. I was a little starstruck too after having read her chapter in Sex, Style and Substance. A couple of teachers from my school and I kept up a conversation about the topic for about an hour and a half after her talk.
