Friday Great Finds and Shares

Hello and welcome to my first Friday post.


Each Friday I will try to share some great finds with you.

Could be recipes... crafting stuff.. inspirational..etc.

I may review some stuff too - which is always fun.






For this week,  my first great find is a recipe I was given.  This weekend, we are having a huge babyshower for my youngest daughter.

One of her sisters had decided to set up a nacho bar... and I had eaten this Taco Soup before and loved it so I decided to get the recipe and give it a try for the shower guests.


TACO SOUP   (serves 4)

1 lb browned ground beef or sausage
1 can Ro-tel tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans
1 can white corn
1 cube beef bouillon
1/2 envelope ranch dressing
1/2 envelope taco seasoning

Mix.  Simmer or put in crock pot on low or simmer on stove for about an hour

Top with corn chips, cheese and sour cream
(fritos are great with this soup)




 I have a few blogs that I follow and try to spend as much time as I can weekly reading.   I have followed this one for a long time and am sharing it with you.

Her posts are always interesting and are accompanied with beautiful photographs.








And last I'm gonna do a quick review.

I absolutely love Chip and Joanna Gaines on Fixer Upper.

I follow them on most of my social media accounts too.

Their magazine, The Magnolia Journal is something I've wanted to get - but found it to be a bit pricey on the newstand.

It comes out four times per year.

I broke down and purchased the spring edition.


I'm almost finished with the entire magazine and I must say I have enjoyed every article. the recipes.. the ideas and the inspiration.    The magazine is very well made - large and sturdy.

I also purchased the summer edition but haven't started reading it yet.


They are worth every penny, even at newstand prices.  But I have decided to get a subscription.   Price is better and I won't miss a issue.




Thanks for stopping by.


I'll be back on Sunday with a Happenings post to share.


Sending out much love.
