What Gobles Gobble part 2

Taco_rice... such a simple concept I can't believe I hadn't hought of it before... Steve's co-worker Kevin used to bring it to work and Steve tried it at a Pot-luck and loved it. Taco rice is the national dish of Okinawa where Kevin's wife is from! I love it because its simple quick it has all of the components of a taco you just serve it on rice instead of a tortilla here's the basic recipe run down this will make 2 generous dinner portions and leftovers for Steve's lunch... :) the amounts of cheese and vegetables are approximations.
1 lb ground beef/turkey
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 small tomato chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup fine chopped lettuce
4 1/2 cups steamed rice
Cook the rice the way you normally would
Brown the meat and mix in the taco seasoning according to the recipe on the pkg.
chop your tomatoes and lettuce and shred your cheese
Layer in a bowl rice then meat cheese top with lettuce and tomato and eat unless your Steve then you need a few dribbles of hot sauce first...

Hello World... I have a secret a secret that wants to bust out of me and be told... A secret that's very hard and at the same time very exciting and I wish more than anything else that I could share it... I feel like a horrible rotten person for keeping it inside but its not for me to tell and every day I have to wait makes me want to scream louder... I have so many mixed and tangled emotions all bundled up around it and I just want it to come out so there's no more hiding or watching what I say or how I react or any of that I feel like I'm lying to my friends and I'm not but not being able to share or tell or talk to anyone about it is really making it hard for me I'm trying to be understanding but I wish it could be over soon!! Please pray for me friends pray for this mystery that I cannot share yet that God would be working in it...

What Gobles Gobble

One of Steve's favorite foods since we got married is something i make called a Dutch Baby... its also called an oven pancake or a german pancake. I have probably made these 4-5 times in the 3 short months we've been married. I usually make breakfast for dinner at our house. Steve leaves so early in the morning having breakfast together wouldn't really be super possible. Anyways Dutch babies to me are like a marriage of pancakes and french toast they're light and fluffy like a pancake but custardy and eggy like french toast they're delicately sweet and have a yummy vanilla flavor! They're super easy and fast to make too like for lazy sunday evenings... You can eat them with butter and syrup i guess traditionally they're served with butter lemon and powdered sugar... ( i should try em that way someday). We eat them fresh out of the oven hot and fluffy before they deflate (they puff up like a souffle). I love sharing recipes its like sharing love so here's some love to anyone who wants it... a big delicious fluffy custardy treat from us to you!

Dutch Baby
1/4 cups sugar
½ cup milk
½ cup flour
2 eggs
½ tsp vanilla
2 tbsp butter

1. Heat oven to 425
2. put butter in a 9” glass pie dish and place in oven
3. thouroughly mix the remaining ingredient
4. when the butter has melted pour the batter into the dish and return to oven
5. bake for 12 min until puffy and golden brown on the edges but still moist in the center
serves 2
This can be made in any pan as far as I know the important thing is just that the pan pre-heats with the butter in it and don't be alarmed if the butter browns a little it adds extra flavor.
