Bean-and-Beef Enchilada Casserole and a Give Away!!!

School started Monday and this is what I cooked for dinner.  It is easy and filling.  I just love the recipes that I am finding in the Make & Take  July issue from Better Homes and Gardens.   By the way it was a good first day.   But, I have more news!  It is my blog’s birthday.  Yes, it has been three years since I started this experiment and I want to reward you the reader with two  cookbooks from one of the first friends that I made as I was over whelmed with the whole blog thing.  I did not know what I was doing.  Well, if the truth be known I still don’t!  Susan Russo from Food Blogga befriended me.  I love using her blog for my class as a resource.  She knows what she is talking about and is so well rounded. Check her blog out you’ll love it! Anyway, I am giving away two of  her cookbooks Recipes that Every Man Should Know and The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches  to a lucky reader.  Just  comment here on the blog.  The deadline is Sunday at midnight.  Good luck!  And you are going to love this recipe!  It is a keeper!
