I found this amazing picture on Pinterest and I've had it pinned for sometime now. I've found that I have a ton of recipes pinned on there and I've decided that each week we're going to try one! This week was this John Wayne Casserole. You can find and print the recipe over at The Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife. The only change that I made was to use my own biscuit recipe rather than a pre-made one for the crust. It's super simple and take just a few minuets.
Crust: Baking Powder Biscuits
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
Mix ingredients together with a fork until moistened. Place dough in a 9x13 baking dish and form it to the bottom and sides.
1. Heat oven to
325. Brown ground beef and add taco seasoning and water, according to
packet instructions; set
2. In a separate bowl, combine sour
cream, mayonnaise, 4 ounces of cheddar cheese, and half of the onions;
3. Stir biscuit mix and water (directions on
box) to form soft dough. Pat dough on the bottom and one-half-inch up the sides
of an 9 x 13 in. greased casserole dish.
4. Saute remaining onions and bell peppers
until slightly tender.
5. On top of biscuit mix, evenly distribute
ingredients in the following order: ground beef, tomato slices, green peppers,
onions, jalapeno peppers, sour cream mixture and end with remaining shredded
6. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until edges of
dough are lightly browned.

Our garage has slowly been getting a face lift. I can't wait to show it off once it's completed! Here is my DIY flower box project though....
Not too bad right!
So I started out by making 4 square boxes out of 2x4's.
We had a stack of old picket fence planks. I picked the past of them, cut to size, scraped off the old paint, screwed them into my frames and re-painted.
I've been seeing these super cute lanterns on Pinterest as well. So I made a few for myself.
I also made this fun sign that is hanging outside the walk in door along with scrubbing, repainting and putting a new light bulb in the outside fixture. Several more things yet to do but it's feeling so much more finished day by day.
The girls had so much fun at our local fair this year! Super proud of Mandy and all of her projects. Above are some of my favorite photos from the fair. I love the last three, Cadence was so tired from all of the fun and the other two we're SO excited about their snow cones :) Pin It
