Spicy Thai Beef Nachos
Almost two years ago I met Megan, Wanna Be A Country Cleaver, and instantly fell in love with her. Earlier this month, I got the chance to spend the weekend with her and I begged her to come introduce herself to all of you! I know you are going to love her…and not just for her recipes like this Gooey Apricot Orange Twisted Coffee Cake (that I can’t stop drooling over). You are really going to love Megan because of her spunky personality and beautiful photos.

Spicy Thai Beef Nachos
You know those ten things you were supposed to learn in kindergarten? Like play fair, speak nicely to others, take naps every day, pick up after yourself and share your things? Well, I have failed at the sharing one. Uhh, whoops? I’m edging on 28 in a couple of days, if I haven’t learned to share yet it probably isn’t in the cards. Especially if it’s a cupcake. AMIRIGHT?
The other thing I’ve completely done away with sharing is the remote. With Ben, the husband, tucked away and studying for hours and hours, and did I mention, hours on end – I’ve become used to watching all of my favorite shows whenever I feel like it. Hello Downton Abbey marathons! Yeah, I know, it’s a sickness.
These Beef Nachos Are The Perfect Appetizer For Football Season
Which is why him coming in to watch football right and interrupting Mathew Crawley proposingto Mary was so absolutely distressing. No matter how many times I see it, I still a little choked upand wishy washy. I mean, he stole the remote away from me to watch one of the Manning Brothers losing?! Life is hard isn’t it?
To help myself get over it, like ya do, I threw together some Thai Beef Nachos and went to town on them. Emotional eater? Check. Bad sharer? You betcha. Ben sure is a lucky man. But the one thing we can agree one – even if it’s not the choice of TV programming – is that nachos are good all the time, and especially during football season.
