The "Night Sky" Petunia is spotted!
My brother has a hanging basket of these in his yard...beautiful! I have never seen or heard of this one before.
This lovely new color pattern is not 100% stable. When we have hot days and cool nights, the color will be predominately white with a purple star pattern.
When both day and night temperatures are unusually high, the coloring may become almost solid purple. Very unique!
Everyone in our house loves any recipe with a Mexican flair! This dish is quick and easy to make...
Here's what you'll need:
1 pound of lean ground beef
1 can of refried beans
1 jar (16oz.) thick and chunky salsa
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
4 med. green onions, sliced
2 med. tomatoes, chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar or Jack cheese
1/4 cup sliced black olives
Pre-heat oven to 350*. Cook beef over medium heat, stirring occasionally until browned; drain. Stir in refried beans, taco seasoning, and salsa. Reduce heat to medium. Let heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
In ungreased 2- quart casserole, add beef then sprinkle with tomato, green bell pepper, onion, olives, and cheese.
Bake uncovered 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly and cheese is melted. Serves 5.
I served this on shredded lettuce with tortilla chips on the side.
