Texas Haystacks

While on our family trip this summer, each family cooked a dinner.  One of the new things we had was Texas Haystacks.  It's very similar to taco salad but just enough different that it was AWESOME. Brown 1 lb. hamburger and prep as you would for taco meat (I use salsa to make mine flavored).

On plate, layer:

Chili Cheese Fritos  (regular fritos will work but more delicious with chili cheese fritos)
Shredded Lettuce
Taco Meat
Shredded Cheese
Sour Cream
Salad Dressing

Yogurt & Fruit

This is seriously my favorite meal right now!  I eat it a lot for breakfast and lunch.  It's delicious!
Here's what I add:
Vanilla yogurt (the lady that told me about this uses cottage cheese instead of yogurt)

I've also had it with melons and with pineapple.  It's so good!

Yesterday we went to a friend's house for a breakfast stand (think lemonade stand).  We couldn't find the pancake mix so we whipped up this quick recipe:

1 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 TBL sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg

Mix dry ingredients.  Add wet ingredients one at a time.  Cook 1/4 cup of mixture on a pancake griddle for each pancake.  Top with chocolate chips for extra yum!!

Korean Beef

Tonight I tried a new dish from Pinterest/SixSisters.  The kids were asking if I made more after they tried it because they loved it!

1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon crushed red peppers
1 bunch green onions, diced
Rice, cooked

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown hamburger with garlic in the sesame oil. Drain the fat.  Add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper and red peppers. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Serve over steamed rice and top with green onions.

I LOVED that you don't need a fancy cut of meat...just regular ground beef!
