Gerogia Trip

We just got back from Georgia a couple of days ago. It was really good to spend time with family, attend the Peaches to Beaches yard sale and hit a couple of plant nursery's there.

We went to Tyty Nursery to buy some muscadine and scuppernong grapes to grow. They had a couple of varieties that should do well in Kentucky. I would recommend this nursery if you are looking to buy fruit of any kind. They know their fruit and have a lot of variety.
 It was a beautiful day and the nursery is beautiful.

Beautiful architecture.

We also visited the County Farm in Appling County. I have heard my sisters talk about going there for years to buy plants to sell in my sister's flower shop. Never did I imagine what the County Farm was! You just have to see this place! They have over 40 green houses and the prices are very reasonable. There was just too much to see.

It was a great trip and some good time spent with family.

Have a great day!

Easy Mexican One Dish Pasta

Here is a new recipe for you to try. It makes a very large amount of food so I cut it in half for the two of us and still had plenty of leftovers for lunches that week. It is quite tasty and pretty economical. It really isn't one dish since you have to boil the pasta, but it's still easy, quick and not very messy. I don't have a picture of the completed dish and this one is a little dark. You can still get an idea of what it looks like.

Easy Mexican One Dish Pasta 
2 lbs ground beef
2 pkg dry taco seasoning
2 boxes macaroni and cheese
2 cups salsa
2 cans tomatoes with chili peppers
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 16 oz tub sour cream
Corn chips, crushed

Cook ground beef in electric skillet until brown. Drain. Add taco seasoning, tomatoes, salsa, beans and cheese packets from macaroni and cheese. Mix well. While beef is browning, cook macaroni
 according to package directions, until noodles are done. Add noodles to ground beef mixture. Stir well and simmer a few minutes.  Before serving, add the sour cream and mix well.

Top with crushed corn chips and serve.

I don't care for beans normally but this was quite yummy.

Have a great day,
