Tamale Pie and New Traditions

Earlier this week I decided to try this recipe, which I have been eyeing for weeks. Bridget’s blog, Tales of Me and the Husband, is funny, whimsical, and inspiring.. go read it! And steal her awesome ideas, like I did.

Anyway, the recipe sounded easy and used one of my favorite foods (cornbread) so I finally pulled ground beef out of my freezer and went to work.  Best food decision of Fall 2011!! This stuff is ah-maz-ing.  Mom, you have to make this asap. The guys will LOVE it.

As you can see, I enjoyed more than half of it. By myself.  This is the danger of living alone.  Luckly, my friend Joanna came over to help me decorate for Christmas and I forced my leftovers on her. She was a good sport about the whole thing.

And speaking of Christmas, Joanna and I hit up Target last night to shop for my first Christmas tree! Of course, we walked out with more than a tree.

 Wreath: $20. Tree: $18. Ornaments: $6.  Choosing my own holiday decorating style: fabulous. 

 The tree is decorated in gold and white with a snowflake theme and a splash of red plaid in the tree skirt (must have plaid somewhere). Since the front door of my apartment is painted a happy green, I wanted a non-foliage wreath. The one I found is twisted twigs with red and silver/gold balls clustered in the edges. Perfect!

Merry Christmas from Savannah!
