30 Day Blog Journal-- Days 20-24.

Day 20 - A Hobby of Yours-- I've played tennis since summer 2007.  It's a great workout and a good stress-reliever.  And so much fun!

Day 21 - A Recipe-- I'm looking forward to trying this Nacho Beef Bake from A Taste of Home.  My mother made it (without me) the other night, and she and my dad loved it.

1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup water
1 envelope reduced-sodium taco seasoning
2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated reduced-fat crescent rolls
1 cup (8 ounces) reduced-fat sour cream
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
4 ounces baked nacho tortilla chips (about 2 cups), crushed
3 cups shredded lettuce
3 medium tomatoes, chopped

  • In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the beans, water and taco seasoning; mash slightly. Cook and stir for 4-5 minutes or until heated through; set aside.
  • Unroll crescent dough and press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray; seal seams and perforations. Spoon beef mixture over dough. Spread sour cream over beef mixture; sprinkle with cheese and chips.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with lettuce and tomatoes. Serve immediately. Yield: 12 servings.
Day 22 - A Website-- Here are some of my favorite (non-blog) websites:
  • Hulu
  • peopleofwalmart.com
  • Entertainment Weekly
  • Drudge Report 
Day 23 - A YouTube Video-- I love this video.  I need one of these machines for Emma.

Day 24 - Where I Live--



Oh, how I love North Carolina!
