Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Eating going well? (and Indian Taco's)

So, has your eating been going well? We're wrapping up day 2 and so far, so good for me!
I've been pretty much sticking to the schedule I posted other than tonights dinner. I didn't end up having time to cook before I had to leave for my Bible study at church, so I just reheated the turkey chili and had that over a bed of lettuce. Then for "dessert" I had celery with peanut butter. Yum! I will admit though, it is 10:06 pm right now and I am feeling mighty snacky. Oh well....going to bed with an empty stomach is only bad until you fall asleep! :o)

Several of you have asked what "Indian Taco's" are. Well, I'll tell you what, I'll give you the recipe...but I strongly urge you to use whole wheat tortillas instead of making your own fried bread. It won't taste NEARLY as good...but you'll be eliminating GOBS of calories and bad stuff for you!

Indian Taco's
1 lb. ground beef (I use lean ground turkey though, of course!)
1 onion, chopped
1 can Ranch style beans
small can tomato sauce
chili powder seasoning
Directions: Brown meat & drain. Mix with all other ingredients. Heat well. Serve with chopped lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, sliced black olives, sour cream, etc.

Fried Bread:
2 c. flour
pinch of salt
1 tbsp. shortening
Directions: Mix all ingredients until thick, like pie crust. Cut into squares and place into hot oil. Fry until lightly browned. Use as your taco shell.

If you have any left over dough...take immediately from hot oil and cover with cinnamon and sugar. Serve warm with honey! (ie. sopapillas!)
dash of garlic

I have no idea why this is called "Indian Taco's". I got the recipe from my high school boyfriends mother. I remember she cooked it for me one time and I was so infatuated with it, that I wrote down the recipe and took it home to my mom. (I was like 17). Then when I moved out and got married, I took it with me and I've had it ever since! ha ha

There is anything remotely to Indian in this :) Firstly there are no Taco's in India. Secondly Beef is not used in Indian foods. Thirdly most of the ingredients are not part of Indian foods either.
Unless you meant Indian to be native american
