Whats For Dinner Next Week:Green Chili Pulled Pork Burrito's

Come on in, we are just on our way to the Up Stairs Patio.  It really is a beautiful place to have morning coffee.  The birds are so busy at the bird feeders, and I just love to watch them take a bath in the bird bath.

We love being outdoors this time of the year.  I am planning a Fall Picnic for a group of friends from the City. We will have about thirty friends so we will be doing some serious cooking. I have been planning The Fall Picnic for some time, so I already  have some items stocked in my freezer and pantry.When I have an upcoming event I am always watching for specials. Another event I plan around this time of the year is football.  We love it all, High School, College, and Professional.  Sunday is usually the big game day and sometimes we will have friends over to watch the game, so I like to serve food that is easy to prepare and not to much last minute preparation.

    Wow! What a fabulous meal plan! Wish I was staying at your house this week! :) I had hush puppies once as a kid, and they were tasty, but we don't have them up here in the Northwest.
    What is your recipe for Ranchero Beans? Sounds good!

  11. To The Keevy Family and Everyone:
    Ranchero Beans
    1 small bag dried Pinto Beans and a small amount of ham or bacon to season; cooked according to package directions.
    After they are cooked and while still hot add:
    3 tablespoons Chili powder
    1 1/2 tablespoon Cumin powder
    2 teaspoons Garlic powder
    Salt and Pepper to taste
    Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes to allow season to set. Enjoy!
