Cheeseburger Bake

Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake

1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion (I use the canned flakes)
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1/4 c. ketchup
Dash of pepper
1 can pork and beans
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 tube (12 oz.) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

In large skillet, cook the beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, ketchup and pepper, beans. Spoon half into a greased 8-in. square baking dish; sprinkle with half of the cheese. Repeat the layers.

Place the biscuits around edges of dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400 F for 18-22 minutes, or until the meat mixture is bubbly and biscuits are golden brown.

I saw this recipe on Redo101's blog it is from Taste of Home magazine. Since I had all the ingredients and it looked so good we are having it for supper tonight.

Zoo Field Trip

We took the kids to Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek, Michigan.  They have the most awesome Africa exhibit.. You can even feed the Giraffes. It was so wonderful. I think I enjoyed it almost more than the kids. We fed the giraffes romaine lettuce leaves. In fact it was so neat the first time we went back again before we left to feed them again.
What am I? How can you tell?
I am....... as tall as the trees!
I have...... a very long neck!
I can....... see a very long way!
I like to eat...... leaves.
I am a......... (Giraffe)
