Taco Packets

In large bowl combine:

4 medium potatoes (peeled and cubed-smallish)
1 # raw hamburger
1 can corn
1 packet taco seasoning mix

Mix well and divide onto 4-6 12" foil squares (depending on how big you want them to be)
Bake at 450° for 35 minutes.

Open carefully and top with a sprinkle of cheese and a tsp. of sour cream. Uneaten packets make great leftovers or will freeze well.

Vanilla Pudding Oat Cakes (Breakfast Cookies)

Preheat oven to 350°

1/2 c flour
1/2 c oats (instant or regular)
1 sm. package of instant vanilla pudding (I used sugar free)
2 tbs wheat germ (if desired)

1/2 c. canned pumpkin (or applesauce or mashed banana)
1/2 c brown sugar (I used Splenda blend)
1 tsp cinnamon
I tsp baking soda
2 tbs water
2 beaten eggs

Combine both mixes together and then add one or all of the following:

1/2 c of dried fruit (cranberries, raisins or whatever)
1/2 c mini chocolate chips
1/2 c nuts (I used hazelnuts)

Sprinkle with additional sugar if you like them a little sweeter.

Drop into 12 cookies on cookie sheet and cook for 12-15 minutes.

I put them in bags of two in the freezer and they freeze and thaw well!
