Also, since it is lead crystal, cold alcoholic drinks taste better than in regular glass. I saw some crystal Margarita glasses online. They were on sale for $45 for two glasses!
Oooh. Pretty!

Taco meat mix for tacos, chili, chili mac, tamale pie

Hopefully I'm mostly done for a few days, and can enjoy having easier cleanups in the kitchen.
It all sounds absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I bet your house smells really good!

We just got back, the daughter had her 8th grade fall dance tonight. It was only for a few hours so dh & I went out & had chinese. Got home & dh is already asleep in his chair. Time to get to bed very soon.

Snip, you crack me up!

I just got home from a ladies' night out at a friend's house watching the first installment of "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency". I had never heard of it before but some of my friends read the books. We had ice cream (well I didn't), popcorn (I did), baklava (I'll never tell!), and other goodies and a great gab session. I haven't seen several of these people in awhile and it was just nice to relax and enjoy myself. I know I will pay tomorrow morning pain wise, but it is TB's day off and we were just planning to watch movies anyway.

Oh, he took me out for dinner at Nando's before dropping me off so I didn't even need to cook today and to the dollar store to buy a bunch of craft stuff!
