Gratituesday: Homeschool Convention

This weekend the hubby and I had the privilege of attending the Midwest Homeschool Convention in Cincinnati.  This is our first year homeschooling and our first time attending the conference.  We had a blast!  The hubster hung out with the big guys (Jay Wile, John Stonestreet, Sean McDowell, Ted Tripp) in the Grand ballroom discussing apologetics and world view.  I spent most of my time in break out sessions covering practical advice for homeschooling.  The highlight of our weekend was hearing Tim Hawkins.  He has got to be one of the funniest people in the world.  The whole weekend was refreshing.  Especially refreshing was that part about sleeping in a hotel without any screaming children to wake us.  Thank you grandparents!

Taco Potato

We love Mexican food around here.  In fact, we usually eat taco meat in one form or another at least once a week.  One of my favorite allergen free mexican meal is filling a potato with taco fixings.  Not only is this delicious but potatoes are cheap!  Taco potatoes really need no recipe but I’ll list the ingredients we use to make ours.

Baked potato (Yellow potatoes have a buttery taste without the butter!)
Taco meat
Daiya or cheddar cheese
Ketchup (We use this as a cooling agent since sour cream is out.)
