-John has made a lot of progess on tiling the floor in one of his bathrooms. Thanks to actually reading the instructions, he was able to install a new toilet without any problems. The highlight was Evan, his three-year old, wanting to test out the new potty. He climbed up on it and told Amy that "This new potty sure is comfortable, Momma. Let's just sit and talk. I could just sit here and talk all day." Where's the tape recorder when you need it? :)

1 lb ground beef or turkey (browned and drained)
Add taco seasoning mix according to package directions.
2 packages of crescent rolls arrange on a round baking sheet in a star shape overlapping slightly with smaller end in center of sheet.
Take taco meet and add to crescent rolls (about 1 tbs per crescent roll and wrap each inward to cover mixture) bake according to crescent package directions.
While baking is taking place prepare lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream, and picante sauce as you would for tacos.
When ring comes out of oven let set for 5 minutes then cut and serve after topping. This is very good and a deviation from the same old taco.
Submitted by Hope Cason of Augusta. If you have a quick and easy recipe to share, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a daytime phone number. You'll receive a thank-you gift if we use your recipe.
