Pumpkin Pie

Hello and welcome to Fall.  Actually, it does not feel like Fall here in central Texas yet.  I am anxiously awaiting it.  I think it will be 92 degrees here today.  Seriously!  I am so ready for some cooler weather, I can hardly wait. 

My daughter has been begging for Pumpkin Pie for two weeks now.  People are putting pumpkins out and decorating because we are hopeful that we will eventually get Fall.  So this weekend my daughter and I made pie.  I am all about easy and tried and true recipes.  If is ain't broke, don't fix it! I like the recipe on the McCormick Pumpkin Pie Spice container.  It is perfect.  

It is so simple!  I hope you will try it! 

McCormick Signature Pumpkin Pie

MIX 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin, 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk, 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice.

POUR into 1 frozen unbaked pie crust.

BAKE in preheated 425ºF oven 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350ºF; bake 40 minutes longer.

COOL completely.

Tex-Mex Burritos

Hello Tempt My Tummy friends.  I'm doing a re-mash of a recipe Lisa did not too long ago.  I would be a good blogger and link to her post but I can't find it.  Sorry Lisa...
AnyHoo... We are in full crazy, ain't it fun to be a parent mode around here.  Today is our first day for my son to have his Doc Band helmet for Plagiocephaly.  So far he has done great EXCEPT for sleeping.  So hard for him to get comfortable.  He is sleeping right now so quick, say a prayer that he stays asleep!
He is a little trooper.  Doesn't he look ADORABLE?!?!?!  Yes, I decorated it because even a boy needs some BLING for his helmet.  I will be documenting our special little journey with Plagiocephaly soon. 

Now for my super quick and tasty

Tex-Mex Burritos.

1 lb hamburger meat  (salt and pepper)
1 medium onion chopped
1 small can chopped green chilis
1 can Tex-Mex Enchilada sauce
1 can refriend black beans
8 flour tortillas
2-3 cups Colby/Jack cheese shredded


Brown the meat with the onions, chilis and salt and pepper to taste.  Take your tortilla, spread some beans on bottom then layer with meat and a little bit of cheese.  Roll tortilla and place in the baking dish.  When all are completed, pour the enchilada sauce on top.  Now thrown on all the chesse you want.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.    Easy Peasy as my daughter would say!  Enjoy!
