everyone should be serene, slow-pulsed and calm.”

From Gene Moore ('67) of CA -07/27/16 - "Oven Baked Tacos!":
Oven Baked Tacos!
Brown your ground beef and drain completely - then add refried beans, taco seasoning and about half a can of tomato sauce. Mix together and scoop into taco shells, (stand them up in a casserole dish).
Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake at 375 for 10 minutes!
FAST AND YUMMY! Thank you, Gene!
From Me ('65) of NC - 07/27/17 - "Purple Crochet":
|Adrienne (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC and Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC recently painted our master bathroom walls Jazzy Lilac with the leftover Valspar paint from our bedroom (which had to be repainted following last fall's storm damage). Most of the accessories made the transition very well, but one did not and needed to be replaced. This was my solution. When in doubt, crochet something!|
