Taco Ring

To make this, you'll need:
2 crescent roll tubes
1 LB ground beef (or ground turkey)
 1 packet of taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese


Lay out the two tubes of crescent pastry, thick sides in on foil. Use some of the left over crescent rolls to to make the center a bit thicker. 
Brown beef and add taco seasoning. 

Add in some cheese., mushroom or black olives. Anything you would like. I do.

Lay beef in a circle on the inside of the laid out crescent rolls.

Add cheese to the top.

Pull over crescent rolls and tuck in under meat and cheese. 

You can sprinkle some cheese on the top if you so desire too.

Follow cook time on the pack of crescent rolls, and once it's done, you're good to go.
Add cheese, lettuce, tomato, black olives, sour cream or whatever you desire for your tacos, in the middle. I sometimes just like to make a small salad to have with it.

Easy, cheap, and yummy!

An update on things going on in my Life

I have been super busy lately with going to see my counselor and going to group every week. I am also taking on tasks around the house that, years ago, I would have never thought possible to do. I am also trying to maintain two blogs and writing in two separate journals. I have also been trying to make time to read and study a book by Albert Garner entitled "Defense of the Faith. I have also been working on a scrapbook of old pictures of me from when I was a baby to the age about 21. I have been remodeling things inside and out of my house. I go to church every Sunday morning and evening and also on Wednesday evenings for bible study.

With all that I have going on you would think I am to busy to enjoy life, but to tell the truth, I love it. I guess i worry that people will think that because I am fat that I sit around all day on my butt and do nothing. If i am to be truthful, years ago that is who I was. I am no longer that fat little girl who everyone picked on and said was to fat to do anything. Yes, I am still fat but oh well. Like I tell the ladies in group, if I spend all my time worrying about being fat and losing a pound here or there then that dampens my life. I am out in the world now and having a great time meeting new people and see new things.

I was just going to write a short paragraph about things going on but when I get to typing my fingers don't want to stop. I have been asked to be the clown for church so i will post pictures of me when that I also plan to post pictures of all the remodeling AI have been doing. I have also gotten into planting flowers again this year so I may post about that too. 

My days are being filled with things that make me happy and I am trying to makes others happy while doing it. I have been getting a lot of compliments in group from the ladies. I am being told that I am inspiring some of them and I must say they have been such a blessing to me. I have met a few that are going to college and are older then me and it is helping me to get over my fears so I may one day go as well. I would love so much to go back to school. The  ladies in my group say they know I will do great and that I am smart. My low self imagine doesn't see it that way.

 I guess that is enough ramblings for today. One little paragraph turns into a whole God Bless.

My Thoughts on a New Counselor and My fears

Well I am trying out the new layout for blogger and it seems to be much nicer then the old one. I have been learning over the past couple of years that change can be a good thing. I have been going to see the same counselor for about 2 1/2 years. For reason, I do not know, he left and I was placed with a new counselor. My new counselor is now moving on to better things so once again I will get another new counselor. Through it all from one to the next I have learn that change can be a good thing. 

I use to hate change. I would stay at home and never do anything out or my norm. I have been getting better at not being afraid of change and learning to embrace it with a happy outlook. I have seen that each counselor had their own things to teach me and own knacks for getting to the point I am now. I am looking forward to this new counselor and what all she can help me with. I have already met her because she helps run the weekly group I go too.

 One day I may be able to walk out my front door with no fears at all, that day for me will be awesome. I look back on how I use to be. I could not even sit on my front porch with out being afraid. I can now walk out the door and down the street. I can get on a bus and go all over town. I can sit next to a stranger on the bus and not be afraid they will harm me. I still have those fears from time to time but they don't stop me like they use too. 

My growing faith in the Lord has helped me greatly. Knowing, in my heart,  that He always looks out for me has been a major part in over coming my fears.Each day is a new challenge and a challenge I am now learning I can over come.
