It's a hot day. I can feel the storm coming that will break this muggy weather. Hopefully it brings lots of rain. We need it for the fields but also for our well. I am on water alert week 2. Less dishes, less laundry, less cooking and cleaning. With this heat it is a great excuse to enjoy my girls in the shade. Today was a morning visit to the park which was on the Napanee river. I let them go in up to their knees but once the splashing started they were soaked. We took a naked drive home and they slept all afternoon. I cooked 1 lb of ground beef in a fry pan during their nap. At 4pm we went out to play in the shade and we did crafts. It was a very successful day.
I made a layered one so I can keep it for supper tomorrow night too and it won't get soggy.
Bottom of a big bowl I chopped half a head of iceburg lettuce. When I cooked the ground beef at nap time I sprinkled 1 tbsp of chili powder on the meat and stirred it up before I drained the fat off. Once it was drained I put it in the fridge to cool and keep til supper.
So I layered the ground beef on top of the lettuce. I chopped a ripe avocado on top of ground beef with 1 green pepper and 1 large tomato. I put 3 tbsp of sour cream and 3 tbsp of salsa in the center on top of the veggies. Then I grated old cheddar cheese on top. It looked so pretty. I scooped out half into another bowl and mix it together for the girls and I. Ashley liked it. I will try it again when Gary comes in and we all sit down for supper. I bet if I put ranch dressing on it Emily will like it. Nice cool supper with little mess and effort.
