Posted by pamspantry on February 2, 2010

Are the cold days of winter dragging you down. Having trouble coming up with new twists on old favorites? Pam’s Pantry to the rescue! Here is a unique twist using one of our many dip mixes that can be made in a matter of minutes. Great warmer upper on these cold February nights!

1-1/2 lbs. Hamburger                             
2 cans Tomato Soup (regular size Campbells)
2 cans water (use soup can)
1 can Kidney Beans* (or refried beans)
2 packs Mellie’s Mexi Mix

Brown hamburger in a large pan or dutch oven and drain grease. Return meat to pan and add in tomato soup, water, beans and Mellie’s Mexi Mix packets. Stir and heat to desired temperature. Serve.

*NOTE: We love using the Refried Beans in place of Kidney Beans!

Back from Vacation!

Posted by pamspantry on February 2, 2010

Whew, what a week! Took the kids and grandson to the UP for a visit. Stayed with our daughter in law Tasha’s family, had a wonderful time. Visited some of the old snowmobile haunts and my favorite is always Tahquamenon Falls. It was freezing cold, but, I’m telling you, if you haven’t seen the falls in the winter, your missing out! It is simply breathtaking. Well worth the walk back. Celebrated the hubbies birthday at the Casinos at Brimley, left some money with them. The son got lucky and won several hundred dollars, WOO HOO!

Back to the grind, facing down piles of paperwork, paperwork and more paperwork. Show schedules are coming together nicely and we are itching to get back on the road. Hope everyone is having a fantastic week!
