Under construction

You may notice some horrifying color schemes popping up here. Don't worry, I'll get them fixed. One big reason I started this blog was to teach myself HTML, and so I'm experimenting. Right now, I'm learning how to make colors. Right now, I suck at that. I'm starting to figure it out though and fortunately for me, my husband understands about that whole color wheel thing, so eventually I should have a decent color scheme going here.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Here's a Mexican recipe...

I stole this recipe from today's edition of the Austin American-Statesman:

Breakfast Tacos

3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

2 to 4 Tbsps. cooking oil

6 slices bacon, cut into bite-size pieces

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup milk

4 eggs, beaten

8 flour tortillas


In skillet, fry bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet and drain
on paper towel. Add oil to bacon drippings and fry diced potatoes until
done. Beat eggs with milk, salt and pepper. Drain excess grease from
potatoes. Warm tortillas. Pour egg mixture over potatoes. Add crisp
bacon bits. Stir mixture until it starts to set. Stir lightly and cook
until eggs are glossy but moist. Divide egg mixture among tortillas.
Fold or roll tortilla to close. Serve with salsa, if desired. Serves 4
to 6.

Yum. I'm making these as soon as possible.
