cheesy taco casserole

1 lb ground beef
2 cups tortilla chips
1 ½ cups medium salsa
½ cup tomato
½ cup red pepper
½ cup green onion
1 ½ cups shredded cheese

recipe : the busy farmer roast

IMG_0016The name and ingredients of this comforting recipe have been made up by none other than my mum, her cousin, and myself. Actually, the only part that I played was in the name of this dish. The idea itself came from two crafty farm girls.

I’m sure at one point or another everyone has either made or tried some variation of this ham and scalloped potato dish. After talking to my mum one day about hearty and easy recipes, she had mentioned this one in particular that she had actually made the day before. She said that her cousin, who also lives on a farm, swears by it. It sounded simple enough, and so delicious at that. I couldn’t resist.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
