Happy October!

I admit, I'm obsessed with my son's feet- little wonder footprint art appeals to me.
What you need:
Non toxic white and black paint
Paint brush ( I used a sponge one to paint his feet and a regular but you can just use a regular one )
Metal bucket
Extra person to help wrangle :)

One person holds your little muse the other Paints the bottom of their feet white.
Press the foot against the bucket ( heel at the top toes pointing down ).
Clean off those toes.
Paint Boo!! Next to the imprint.
Let it dry.
Paint eyes and a mouth on the imprint in black.
Let it dry.

Optional- tie a ribbon on the handle or fill with candy.

Tater Tot Casserole

This is the best version I've come up with so far!

1 can crm of mushroom soup
1lb ground beef
1 can pinto beans (omit beef and do 2 cans beans for vegetarians or cheaper dinner)
1 can of mushrooms
1/2 small bag frozen corn
Small white onion chopped
4oz shredded cheddar cheese
2 cloves garlic chopped
Italian seasoning
Garlic powder
9x12 pan greased

Oven at 450 - brown meat- season with italian and adobe seasonings, sweat onion and garlic in pan at end of browning( doesn't need to cook through).

Put meat mix in pan with soup, beans, and mushrooms - mix.

Top with tater tots, sprinkle with garlic powder, and the cheese.

Bake 25 minutes and enjoy!!!
