Taco Casserole and Christmas Decorations

Today was a busy day around our house.  Cally and I did some Christmas shopping early this morning, then back home for lunch.  We had a simple lunch of grilled ham and turkey sandwiches, potato salad and chips.  I love having a grilled sandwich on cold days.  It was cold here in OH this morning, we woke up to 18 degrees.

We put up our Christmas tree today.  It was weird to be putting up our tree and hearing the farmers out in the fields around us picking their corn.  It has been too wet here in our area for the farmers to have picked all of their fields.  They have had to wait for the ground to freeze before they were able to get their combines in the field and not sink in the mud.  I think this is the latest I can ever remember there being corn still up in the fields.

I have been sending some goodies with Billy to work at the Christmas Tree Farm this year.  As a thank you Bev sent home a gorgeous wreath that she made for me.  We have hung it on our front door...I just love it!

Well on to our Taco Casserole we had for dinner.  This is a fast and easy meal and it is very good if you like Mexican food.

Taco Casserole

1 roll seamless crescent rolls
2 lbs ground Turkey (can use beef also)
2 pkgs Old El Paso taco seasoning
1  enchilada sauce
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
crushed fritos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place crescent rolls in the bottom of a 9X13 pan.  Bake crust for about 12 minutes.  Meanwhile brown turkey and then add the taco seasoning according to package directions.  Take crust out of the oven and begin layering the casserole.  Put tacoed turkey over the crest, then pour the enchilada sauce, next add the shredded cheese and finally the fritos on top.  Return the casserole to the oven for about 20 minutes.
