Freebie Friday: $10 gift card for Build-a-Bear Workshop

One Christmas season, several years ago, my stepdaughter took Tootie to the Build-a-Bear at Park Plaza Mall. Tootie created an adorable reindeer with sparkly red shoes. It’s still one of her more cherished stuffed animals.

Today, I’m giving away a $10 gift card for Build-a-Bear.

To enter, leave a comment below describing your children’s beloved “lovies.”

I’ll announce a winner next Wednesday. Good luck!

In anticipation of Cinco de Mayo parties…

I made these cute, little bite-sized tacos awhile back for a Boy Scout event, and will be making them again tomorrow for a party. They’re super-easy! Make lots — they go fast. Note: I advise setting out the condiments and letting people choose their toppings. I, for example, like mine with a jalapeno!

Cute AND tasty!

1 pound lean ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
Tostitos Scoops

Optional Taco Condiments
shredded cheese
shredded lettuce
sour cream
hot sauce

1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the beef.
2. Add in ground beef and cook until browned and thoroughly cooked.
3. Add taco seasoning and follow package directions.
4. Assemble the meat and condiments into the scoops. Top with cheese and bake until melted.
