Friday Fives and 9 Days Straight

Friday = Happiness.
And it also = Friday Fives time from Beth!

1. Whats your go to recipe?

My go to recipe is Taco Casserole. I've posted the recipe several times, but it's just so easy and so good! Always a hit.
Tortilla chips, 1 can refried beans, Mexican blend shredded cheese, 1 pack taco seasoning (I like Old El Paso), Chicken or Beef, and 1 small onion.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop chicken into bite sized pieces and cook until done. While that's cooking, crush tortilla chips to cover bottom of a casserole dish. Spread beans over chips.
Mix taco mix into water as directed on packet. Once chicken is done, pour taco mix mixture into the pan and let simmer for 2 minutes. Then pour entire mixture over beans in dish. Top with cheese. Bake for 30 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes. Serve with all your favorite taco fixins (sour cream and jalapenos are my faves) and enjoy! Yummy!

2. When you hear "American food" what comes to mind?
Hmmm....I'm gonna have to go with fried chicken, biscuits, mashed potatoes and gravy.
I could also go with BBQ!
Oh wow, this is making me hungry!

3. What would you say is one of your "weirdest" quirks?
Definitely my eating habits. I am SO weird with food.
For instance, I put vinegar in my soup.
I also strain my chili so that I only end up with a broth of sorts to eat. However, it is imperative to make chili with all the normal ingredients in order to get the right flavor.
Usually for everything I eat, I put something else on it to drown out the flavor of what I'm actually eating.
I might need counseling.

4.What color do you mainly wear?
I wear a lot of black. Hey, it's slimming.
But lately, I've really been trying to branch out and add a little color to the mix.
Baby steps.

5. Always have to say everything on your mind or never speak again?
I pretty much always say what's on my mind. That gets me in trouble sometimes, but that's just me!

So hooray for me, I have blogged for 9 days straight!
Woot woot!

Today's topic is supposed to be pics of my friends.
Umm....I'm gonna have to get back to you on that one!
