I just tried this recipe the other night and it was so good and so easy to make!
Taco Crescent Ring
2 packages crescent rolls
1 lb. ground beef (I use ground turkey)
taco seasoning (see recipe below for your own taco seasoning)
1 cup shredded lettuce
chopped tomatoes
green onions
1 cup sour cream
Brown meat and drain off grease. Add seasoning. Unroll crescent rolls and make into a circle (it looks like a sun when you are finished unrolling; the wide end of the crescent roll will be in the center of the circle). Add cheese to meat and stir. Place meat/cheese mixture on crescent rolls and wrap pointed edges around the meat mixture so it forms a ring. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. After baked, remove from cookie sheet unto a platter. On inside of ring place lettuce, tomato and green onions. Serve sour cream and salsa on side. Cut into wedges and serve.
Taco Seasoning
Combine the following:
2 teaspoons instant minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon crushed red peppers (I omit this)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
