A Delicious Fall Dinner

Davy loves navajo tacos.  They are a super easy and delicious dinner.  With the scone on bottom, add chili on top with lettuce, cheese, olives, salsa, ranch dressing, whatever you like!

 For the "chili", brown 1lb burger with 1 taco seasoning packet, drain grease.  Add 1 packet of Ranch dressing mix, 1 can tomato sauce, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can refried beans, 1 can black beans, 1 can pinto beans, and 1 can corn.

 For the scones, go to Maceys, Kohlers, or Fresh Market and purchase Honeyville Scone Mix.  It is the best.  It's on the breakfast aisle by the pancake mix.  Follow the directions on back.

 Make sure your water is warm for your yeast.  A little trick is to sprinkle a little bit of sugar on the top to help "wet" the yeast.  You can also stir it with a fork and let sit for 10mins.  It should rise to between the 1 1/4 cup to 1 1/2 cup mark.

 Add the yeast mixture to the mix and stir with a fork.  Then just pick up and knead with your hands until it becomes elastic and smooth.  Cover and let rest for 20 mins.

This is the best trick for getting flour to stick.  Wipe your cupboard with a damp cloth, sprinkle flour, and then smooth with your hand.  It leaves the perfect amount for you to place your dough on.

 Roll out to 1/4" thick and cut with small bowl.

Fry til golden brown. I love my Fry Daddy.  It is perfect for scones, donuts, fries, etc.  I always make enough to have a dessert scone with honey butter.  (See recipe at the bottom)

This is also my favorite scraper.  It came as a bottom attachment for my cheese grater, but works perfectly for scraping the flour from the counter. 

Here's the best recipe for honey butter:
1 1/2c honey 
1/2 stick butter at room temp
1 7oz jar of marshmallow creme

Whip the honey til cloudy, add butter, then add marshmallow creme.
