I saw this recipe on a friend's site and had to copy it. I couldn't stop laughing at how cute it was. So sorry about all the recipes this week there were to many good things to post:)

1/2-1 lb. Ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 can of corn (not creamed), with liquid
1 can of stewed tomatoes, with liquid
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 pkg. taco seasoning
Ground the beef and drain off fat. Cook onion for a couple minutes until tender. Put beef and onion in large cooking pot. Cook on Medium heat. Add corn, tomatoes, kidney beans, black beans, and taco seasoning (the original recipe didn't call for black beans, but I always add them and it turns out great). Cook for 20 minutes covered, let lightly boil. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, white corn chips and guacamole.
If you dont like meat this is good without the hamburger too just add more corn and beans.

On Martin Luther King day, we took advantage of the zoo's free admission up in Portland. It was well worth the drive, although, everyone else seemed to have the same idea. There were a few animals that weren't out but, we'll be back to take their pictures. :)

After a few long days of unpacking, we had to get out of the house and explore. So we decided to take a trip to the coast. It was a great choice since the weather was unusually warm for the Oregon coast. It was 61 degrees in Newport! I could get used to this! :)
