A Little Something

to bring in the new year. This is something that my roommates and I started doing a couple of years ago, and now we drink this on any and every special occasion. It's so simple and so yummy! All you need is a bottle of Welchs sparkling white grape juice and a can of peach nectar (this can be found in the Mexican food aisle of your grocery store, or Walmart, or possibly with the juices). Also, you might want some cute champagne flutes or wine glasses. Just put about a tablespoon and a half of peach nectar in each glass and fill the rest with the sparkling white grape juice, then toast to the new year! You can also use any cheap champagne instead of the sparkling white grape juice if that tickles your fancy. Happy New Year everyone, and enjoy a peach Bellini!

Baby its Cold Outside

When its cold outside I like to eat something thats warm, so that's what we did tonight. My mom made chili tonight and it was so good! Here's the recipe:

1 lb. hamburger meat
1 Tbsp minced onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 8oz can tomato sauce or stewed tomatoes
1 12oz can kidney beans

Brown hamburger meat, add remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer 20 minutes.
Couldn't be easier, and it so good!

You might be next...

I've been tagged by Lita to post the 4th picture in the 4th album of my computer. I was wondering what it might be, figuring that it was either a picture from Disney world or an OU football game since that is what I have the most pictures of and I was right. Here is a picture from the OU-UNT game last year on Labor Day weekend.

This picture was taken at my first game as an OU season ticket holder, and what a wonderful game to kick it off. The final score was 79-10, we almost left early because we were so far ahead, but decided to stay for the whole first game of the season. I took the picture after the game was over and the players were headed back into the locker room, fans were huddled around the edge of the field to maybe have a chance to high five one or two of the players, and I was a little behind them. My dad and I have now been through 2 seasons as season ticket holders and I don't see that ending any time soon. I love me some Sooner football!!! BOOMER SOONER!
I guess now I have to tag some others to keep this going. I choose Amanda and Jessica. Lets see what pictures you come up with!
