Plan Your Next Disney World Vacation — Free DVD, Plus Extra Tips!

Planning a Disney vacation can be a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. It’s one of those trips that usually requires some thought beforehand. There is SO much to see and do at the parks and there’s a lot to plan for — fast passes, meals, staying on/off site, etc. Start your planning now, no matter when your date of travel may be, with this FREE DVD offer from Disney. This DVD is great, especially for first time visitors. It gives you a tour of all 4 parks, the 2 water parks, and the many resorts within Walt Disney World.


Aside from this free DVD, here are a few more tips and money saving ideas:

  1. Character Dining is usually a must for all families planning a trip to Disney World. Instead of visiting the princesses in Cinderella’s Castle, which can be quite costly out of pocket and uses double the dining credits, consider visiting the princesses within Epcot or at the Grand Floridian Resort. You can meet Cinderella at both of those locations and it is still a really fun dining experience!
  2. Booking your vacation for June 13-August 14, 2013? You can save up to 30% on select resorts. Just click here for more information.
  3. Need some general advice on how to navigate your vacation? Try some of our best tips.
  4. If you choose to pay out of pocket for some meals, consider these quick service restaurants. They have great food, plus the portions are a great size, so you will be getting the most for your money. See our complete list here.

Easy Beef Empanadas

April 22, 2013 by admin  
Filed under Girl Talk, Meals In Minutes

Just tried these empanadas for dinner last week and they were a big hit! Easy to make and yummy too.


Easy Beef Empanadas

What You Need:

1 Package of Pilsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust

1 Package of Mexi-blend Shredded Cheese

1 Small Onion

1 lb. Lean Ground Beef

1 can (14 oz) Diced Tomatos with Green Chiles, drained

2 tsp Chili Powder

1 egg

Dash of Salt and Pepper

Fix it Fast

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Meanwhile, in a skillet brown meat. Drain excess fat and place cooked meat into a large bowl.

2. Chop onion and in a skillet cook 3-5 minutes or until tender.

3. In bowl mix beef, onion, tomatoes (drained well), chili powder, salt and pepper.

4. In a separate bowl, beat egg.

5. On a greased cookie sheet, unroll pie crusts. Spoon beef mixture onto half of each crust, leaving room around the edges. Top mixture with cheese.

6. Fold over other half of pie crust and press edges closed using your finger or a fork.

7. Spread beaten egg around edges and top of the pie shell. Cut 3-4 one inch slits on the top of each empanada.

8. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

9. Cut into wedges and serve!

beef-empandas2 (800x423)

We noticed that with 1 lb of beef there’s quite a lot of filling. You might want to to consider filling 4 pie crusts instead of 2.

If you use less than a lb. of meat to start, consider filling one shell with meat mixture and the other with only cheeses {we are going to try this next time!}.
