Frugal Friday, Fast Track Cooking and fun!

Last night my sister and her family came over and shared supper with us!!! It is always such a blessing to spend time with them. The weather was BEAUTIFUL so all of the cousins passed the time getting dirty (I mean playing) outside! I think if summer time bath water isn't really dirty then my kids didn't have enough fun that day!!! Maybe even the same for me! I need to get dirt under my fingernails at least ONCE each nice day.

Having family over for supper doesn't have to break the budget! We really enjoy having others over for dinner!
Anyway, I pulled two bags of "efficient cooking" browned deer burger out of the freezer and whipped up tacos in no time! Yummy supper, fun fellowship and sunshine all in one day! Scores a 10 for me. I love being able to make a good supper without spending a ton of time in the kitchen. Yesterday was too busy for lots of kitchen time.... I was too busy playing with my new baby chicks!!!!

Fast track Tacos:
Browned meat from freezer (thawed in microwave)
1 can chili beans
1 package taco seasoning
1 can diced tomatoes (with or without chilies)
Shells of your choice

Directions: Blend together the beans, tomatoes and seasoning in blender till smooth.
Mix the bean mixture with the browned meat and warm up in microwave.
Serve with your choice of toppings. We use cheese, lettuce, salsa!

I dropped in from Amy's blog and I will come back. I like how you are family oriented and use the stuff around you, (like vensison). I hope you post photos of your chicks!

That sounds like a very interesting meal! I grew up eating venison :)
