Mission Statement

We are a people who tell stories in one form or another.
After all isn't blogging just another way to gather around and tell those stories?

Motherhood is Painless is about finding the humor in the every day. In finding the happiness in those stories that we tell. What would happen if we *all* learned to laugh at ourselves? Maybe then the dark corners would recede a bit and we would all rejoice at the love we find there.

Dinner tonight

After the eating extravaganzas of the past three days, I wanted to make something for dinner that was simple and would work on cleaning out my fridge a bit.

Mom gave me a container of turkey and one of green salad after Christmas dinner the other night. I also have a huge amount of pasta from Christmas Eve...so I decided to invent a cassarole:

Turkey Taco Cassarole

4 cups cooked pasta (like rotini, or penne)
1 1/2 cups cooked turkey, cut in cubes
1 can black bean soup
1 cup salsa
1/2 package pre-shredded taco cheese
1 bell pepper diced

Mix ingredients, leaving a little cheese to sprinkle on the top.
Bake for 45 minutes, or until brown and bubbly.

I also added about 3/4 cup of ground turkey, seasoned for tacos that I had left over!

Serve with salad with ranch dressing
