Lori is a Rockstar ~ 2 Recipes

So, my friend Lori over at Joy Unspeakable is on this insane amazing quest to cut processed foods from her family's meal plan.  Honestly, she's taught me a thing or ten, and it has inspired me to try lots of new things too!  Thank you, dear friend, for challenging me and taking me out of my foodie comfort zone.

When I saw her homemade soft tortillas, I had to try them.  Let me just say, I got out the tub o' butter and snacked my way through taste tested them.  All my people, from the smallest to the biggest (who had his wisdom teeth out Friday but couldn't resist!) loved them!  I.am.a.hero!

On this night I browned up some ground beef, added some taco seasoning, whipped up some homemade refried beans, some rice, chopped some lettuce, opened a jar of salsa (I know, I should make that too!), grated some cheese, and we had soft tacos.



I'm sending you to Lori's blog for the recipe since she shared it!
*I doubled the recipe for my family, and we only had 4 left over*


After New Year's when I posted pictures of the treats we whipped up to celebrate, a friend asked for the Rolled Pizza recipe.  It's super easy and yummy!
Unfortunately, I copied this recipe a long time ago, and I don't have the source.

Rolled Pizza
2 cans refrigerated pizza crust
1 lb bacon, fried and crumbled
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
1 onion, chopped and browned with beef
Velveeta, chunked or shredded
(You can also add pepperoni, sausage or Canadian bacon ~ make it yours!)
Roll out crusts on greased sheet, cover with the toppings.  Roll up and bake at 350 approximately 20 minutes or till golden.  Slice when cooled.
*I used about 8 oz of Velveeta but it was a little dry so next time I'm adding more cheese and maybe a smidge of sauce*

Go be a hero!

So glad you loved the tortillas!

And your pizza roll looks yummy. But girl, you just made homemade tortillas...so you can totally make your own pizza dough too! :) And ditch the Velveeta and use REAL cheese. :)

Easy little changes to make things real and fresh!

Oh and I meant to say that YOU are the rock star. You are doing way WAY harder things that I am. (You know what I mean!)

Love you!
