So, I'm trying to cook more. Those of you who know me well, know I hate to cook. So today I decided to make taco soup. I love soup so I thought this would be an easy no-brainer. It turned out okay, but not that great. It was a little too tomatoey and didn't have enough hamburger in it. This would usually be the time when I would say to myself, "See. You tried to cook. You wasted money and good time on something and it didn't even turn out to be that good. Next time, just order take out." Well, I'm not going to be so easily deterred. Next time, I think I'll double the hamburger. I'll also need to either reduce the tomato paste or the amount of stewed tomatoes. I'm thinking I may get rid of one of them altogether. We'll see.

If you have any good, easy recipes, send them my way so I don't revert to my take out menus.
