All ya need is a cold beer and a dash of hot sauce..

These little sandwiches are sure to please your Super Bowl guests! You can also have most of the ingredients prepped early so all you have to do is basically throw them together, pop them in the oven and their ready to be enjoyed by all…. But first let me share my week……………………

Tuesday we had to go to Gainsville to have a recall fixed on our car and while we were there, looked at some cars they had for sale. We were tired of having to drive all the way down there just to get the Tiguan serviced and wanted to have a vehicle that we could have taken care of here locally. Well folks, we drove home in a 2015 Equinox LS which is like brand spanking new; moved on up in the world, love it!

Kenny was happy to get a Chevy back in the driveway!

It took us 4 hours at the dealership and we were due to go visit granddaughter which we did do, but just not for as long as we would have liked. Urlic was sound asleep when we arrived and still out like a light when we left. Brother Niklaus on the other hand, was wide awake and Gram and Pappy got to hold him and give him lotsa  hugs and kisses as he is becoming much more alert now. He is only two months old and almost too heavy for this old body to pick up, gonna be just like his older brother and daddy, BIG boy! We also got to take Eric’s pickles to him (Normally Sweethot Dill Pickles which we will also enjoy on our platter on Sunday) and as he was at work already he didn’t get to try them when we were there. When he got home though, he about demolished the whole jar before the night was over, guess he liked them, YES, score one for Gram!

 

Back to the Super Bowl and these little bites from heaven. Rooting for the Panthers Sunday but really don’t care who wins as we like both teams, picked them to see some newer blood take the title! We will be having Kenny’s traditional Po-Po Platter filled with lots of cold cuts, cheeses and assorted pickles piled high on all different kinds of crackers…. Can’t wait as it always seems to taste better on the actual day of the Bowl. I was so excited shopping the other day as I found that crescent rolls now come in sheets without the perforations, so perfect for this and so many other recipes! So with that I give you…..

Taco Cheeseburgers Deluxe

Yesterday was National Cheeseburger Day and I was unaware of it til I saw it on Fox News in the morning! So with that, dinner plans changed; as you all know Ken and I don’t need much of an excuse to cook up something with our fresh ground hamburger! Maybe we should have named our site “The Hamburger Hut” or something of that nature!!!

 

Look out girls!!!!

Look out girls!!!!

But before I get into that, let me share with you what was on our agenda this week. First of all, we had to have a little work done on our car and that led to a trip to Gainsville and a chance to see great-grandson again :) He is growing in leaps and bounds and such a happy baby, it makes us so proud of the job our granddaughter and her fiance is doing in raising him!

 

The other thing on our agenda this week was putting up our new mail boxes in FRONT of our house. If you follow us you know

We are getting sooo handy!

that we joke a lot about living in the boonies and for all the 10+ years we have lived here, we have had our mail boxes up on the main road therefore we had to walk or drive the car up to get our mail everyday, what a pain in the you know what ;(  that was. Well, today was the first day of real home deliverd mail and it was a pleasure to say the least! Sometimes the most simplest things in life really can make you happy! :)

Taco Cheeseburgers Deluxe
 
Ingredients
  • 1 lb fresh ground beef (I know that some of my followers use ground turkey instead and that's fine too!)
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning or homemade (I shared my link in the upper paragraph)
  • Lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced sweet onions and/or any other toppings you might use for your tacos.
  • Taco sauce of your favorite heat.
  • Salsa con queso (I use Taco Bell's)
  • This will make 3 to 4 nice burgers
Instructions
  1. Mix ground beef with the taco seasoning, shape into patties and fry to desired wellness.
  2. Top with desired amount of salsa con queso until cheese is warm and gooey.
  3. Place on roll or as we did, toasted Italian bread and top with taco sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion.
  4. For a side dish, Kenny wanted nacho chips with MORE cheese sauce!

 

Ole! You have it, now go and enjoy your weekend!
