Don't Be Prepared

I've spent the last 2 days running errands and being out of the house. I had planned on staying in today, maybe getting the house in order. My plan was to only get the kids to and from school but then just keeping a low profile at home.

And then...

On the way home from preschool my tire got a flat. So, on the bright side, I was already planning on spending a day at home and had no appointments or places I had to be, but, on the other side, good day or not, I have to shell out big bucks for new tires, an alignment and a fixed tire rod.

Using my beans

I'm making dinner tonight. Its been a rare occasion these days.

Taco Soup (I got this from my neighbor and do not know the original source)

2 lbs ground beef (today I just used one lb of ground beef and 1 can of black beans)
2 cans pinto beans (don't drain)
2 cans stewed tomatos
2 cans corn (drain)
1 can rotel zesty tomatoes (I use a different brand name that has green chiles in it)
1 pkg hidden valley ranch dressing
1 pkg taco seasoning

dump it all into a crockpot for a couple of hours.

serve with sourcream and shredded cheese and chips.
