Categories

I’m just a blogging maniac tonight.

Anyway, for the faithful blog reader that lives in my house, I have taken your advice and begun to add categories. There is now a category labeled “Kitchen stuff”. This is where any posts about recipes, cool food products, or anything remotely kitchen related will go. I have gone through my archives and moved all appropriate posts into that category. And when I think of another category then I’ll do that too. Thank you for your gentle prodding. I’m sure I’ll appreciate it when I’m asked to publish a cookbook and need to know where my recipes are :)

Easy Mexican dinner ideas

Wilm, a faithful reader from way back, has asked for some more Mexican food ideas. What follows is a meal that is influenced by Mexican food but I wouldn’t really call it Mexican food.

Nachos

Cook some mince (ground beef) with a chopped up onion. Add one can of Watties Mexican Baked Beans (have you seen those? They’re new. They’ve also got an Italian, Indian, and some other flavour one) or Chili Beans. Mix well. Serve over nacho chips, topped with sour cream, shredded cheese, maybe some tomato and avocado. My husband loves this! So easy.

Another variation is to get a couple scoops of chips and serve over chips. In the States you can get something called Chili Cheese Fries, which are WONDERFUL. So this is kind of like chili cheese fries. But New Zealand chips are way better. For our North American readers, chips are what we call French Fries.

Check back later for a recipe for Black Bean Soup (which is delicious and takes about five minutes to make, once you have the beans cooked) and also a recipe for homemade fajita seasoning.

Bunk beds and desk for sale

This is a shameless plug for the last two big things we have to sell. For those of you in New Zealand PLEASE have a look at our Trade Me auctions. If you’re interested in the either item, let me know and we’ll see if the auction sells. If not, I’ll do you a deal ;)  And we’ll even arrange to meet you in the middle for delivery, so if you’re in Auckland, we can drive up to Huntly (that’s not really in the middle but closer!) and if you’re in Hawke’s Bay, we can drive down to Taupo.

Go here for the bunk bed

Go here for the desk

Praise the Lord, we sold our washing machine today! And hopefully our van will sell soon. And if you’re not interested in our stuff, I totally understand. Just trying to let everyone know!
