finished Beef Taco Casserole

Southwestern Beef Taco CasseroleThis is an excellent one-pan to one-dish meal that can serve a lot of people without too much effort. I recently had 6 people come over to my house after an event and they were hungry. I had a lot of snack items around, but I wanted to give them something more substantial. This was the perfect dish. Since it has layers of tortilla chips and cheese, baking it off turns it into a cross between tacos and enchiladas. I hope you try this one out!


Japanese Sweet Potato Rice in bowl

Japanese Sweet Potato RiceIt is sweet potato season and I love it! One of my favourite ways to use up sweet potato is inside this warm and comforting rice dish. It's really easy to make and creates a great side for any entree. I used a rice cooker here but you can use whatever method you usually cook your rice.

Parking Lot FungiWhile out with my 17 year old grandson shopping for a Halloween mask, we saw these beautiful orange fungi in the planter median of the strip mall.
