Rug-Hooked Goat, Taco Soup, Snow

It's interesting what my vision was for my first hook-rug effort and now what I seeing. She was supposed to look like a superb show-quality Nigerian Dwarf doe, but yet she's turning out to look more like one of my Irish Terrier's.
Taco Soup recipe
1 pound ground meat (I use turkey and chuck)
1 large onion, chopped
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
1 (16 ounce) can pinto beans
... 1 (16 ounce) can black beans
1 (16 ounce) can dark-red kidney beans
1 (16 ounce) can whole kernel corn
1 (16 ounce) can Zesty-Chili-Style tomatoes
1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 envelope Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix

Brown meat and onions. Add taco seasoning mix into meat. Add all other ingredients without draining into the large pot. Top with tortilla chips, sour cream, and zesty cheese. Makes a big pot, good stuff on a winter's day.

This is the top of our driveway/goat path before descending down a slope to the road. BarbaraJean and Jack think they hear something.

Taco soup sounds good. You made fast progress with the rug. Your goat may not look like a show queen, but she's cute. Pretty snow pics.

I think your rug looks good! I use a different variation on the Taco Soup and sometimes cook in the crockpot. Hmmm...guess you helped me decide what's for dinner!
