Day 10

What did you have?


  1. Ooh...that looks good. Reminds me of the Taco Soup I used to make. Soup is perfect on cold days like this.

    We had roast, potatoes, carrots & biscuits. I actually cooked the roast in the crock pot yesterday and Randy just had to plug it in this afternoon.

  2. Soup sounds AMAZING! Will have to get the stuff to make it! Salad...hmmm... not so interested cause I don't like avocados BUT, it looks pretty! LOL.... so cool though that you got 5 outta 5 who liked it...that rarely happens in the Boni house!
