After breakfast on Sunday, we went back toward the laundry mat we usually go to, and found it full. We decided to drive around a bit instead. We ended up back in South Boston. I was falling asleep, when Jerry said he had to use the bathroom and stopped at the gas station he often stops at on his way into work for his drinks. When he got back in the van, he said "Where to now?" I said We could look for a laundry mat and wouldn't you know, there was one right across the road from the gas station. It cost a bit more than the one in Danville but not that much more. It wasn't very busy when we got there but got busy not soon after wards but there were still plenty of machines. I do have to hang a few items in the camper today, but that dryer was a bit more full and these are the thicker things, i.e. a light jacket, a couple of thick T-shirts and some socks... I got most of them hung last night but I only have 7 hangers (no, I don't want any more than that) and the rest will be hung up this morning when I start my cleaning up.
I forgot to pull the sausage out of the freezer last night and had to cut off what I needed for Jerry's breakfast off the frozen roll. How I hate to do that. I'll have to cut the rest of the roll in a couple of hours while the roll is still semi frozen so I can get even, thin(er) slices for this week.
The News is saying that our Temperatures next Sunday may be in the upper 60's to low 70's. Yikes.. That is NOT winter weather at all. Much as I don't like the cold, We need a good cold snap to kill all the bugs.
I have bagged up the trash and put it outside to go into the van this evening. The dogs and I have had one walk, this morning
Outside my door ... (11 am) Its so nice and bright and sunny and warm. I only needed a light jacket to walk the dogs around the circle drive. Strips decided he was going to "lead" us and I did a couple of turn around's to confuse him. It's bad enough the dogs want to lead me when they don't know where I want to go, It's just downright funny when a cat does it. Now, if I could only get him to "sit" and "Stay" on command like I do the dogs.
A pre-baked crust of refrigerated crescent-roll dough is filled with a mixture of browned ground beef and taco seasoning layered with sour cream, shredded cheese, and crushed nacho chips. It is returned to the oven for about 10 minutes."

2.Lay crescent dough flat on the bottom of a square cake pan and bake according to package directions.

When Beth called me this morning I mentioned that I was going to make this for our Dinner and she said she had made it over the weekend. She said that I may want to season the dough a bit as it's a bit sweet. She said that, next time she makes this, She will either sprinkle some Garlic or Onion powder over the crust.. or use a blend of the two. I suggested Season Salt since it has both and she said that may work.. When I looked at the amount of seasoning I had in my Taco Seasoning packet, I noticed it was more than 1 oz so I sprinkled some of that over the dough and put the rest of the packet in the ground beef I had on in the skillet. Since my hubby does NOT like Sour Cream, I'll not put that on.. Beth said she put some sour cream on after it was baked, on her portion since her S/O doesn't like Sour Cream either and she said that's really the way to do it so the Sour Cream stays cool. I used Frito Chips since I'm out of Nacho Chips.
