Yumminess for Your Weekend

What could be better on a Friday than a couple of yummy {and simple} recipes to get your weekend started on the right note??

Here's one of my favorites that's quick to make and uses ingredients right out of your pantry and, as promised, a recipe from Weeknight Dinners.  (Have you entered to win yet??)

EASY Taco Casserole

1 lb ground beef
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup sour cream
2 T. chili powder
2 c. crushed tortilla chips
2 c. shredded Colby Jack cheese
Chopped tomato and shredded lettuce

Brown and drain beef; add salsa, sour cream and chili powder.

(Don't let these pictures scare you.  I double or triple every recipe.)

Mix well, then layer 1/2 meat mixture in un-greased 2 quart baking dish; also 1/2 chips and cheese.  

Repeat layers.  

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.  

Top with tomato and lettuce just before serving.  

The thing I love about Weeknight Dinners is the way the cookbook is divided into a different theme for each night of the week...

Meatless Monday
Tuesday is Tex-Mex Night
Wednesday is Italian Night
Comfort Food Thursday
Just for Fun Friday

Since today is Friday I thought we should start there.

Applesauce Pulled Pork

3 to 4 lbs country style pork ribs, cut into 6 pieces
salt and pepper to taste
1 c. cinnamon applesauce
18 oz. bottle barbecue sauce
Optional:  6 sandwiches buns, split

Season pork with salt and pepper; arrange in a large slow cooker.  Spoon applesauce and barbecue sauce over pork.  Cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours, or until very tender.  Pull pork apart with 2 forks.  Serve on sandwich buns, if desired.  Makes 6 servings.  

I'm going to try this over the weekend!  YUM!!

Hope your weekend is super cozy!
