Menu Monday

We've had some crazy weather here in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area. Last week we had a morning snow shower. The kids were really bummed they had to go to school.

Later that day we headed to the mall I realized Will needed a winter coat his little light weight jacket wasn't going to cut it. Cold weather makes me think of soup..... especially Nana's Taco Soup.

Monday:Crock Pot Taco Soup. Easy and yummy recipe.
Brown ground beef and drain. Add to crockpot on low with 1 can of black beans, 1 can of red kidney beans, 1 cup of frozen corn (tastes better than canned), 1 can of rotel and 2 cans of crushed tomato's (the fire roasted with garlic). I blend the tomato cans together in the blender, I don't like big chunky tomato stuff. Then I add 1 packet of taco seasoning and 1 packet of ranch dressing seasoning and finally 1 1/2 cups of water.
I usually cook in the crockpot for about 4 hours. It is so good!

Tuesday: Leftover Taco Soup

Wednesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs
( I skipped this one last week)

Thursday: Take out from Little Caesar's Pizza we have an event that night. Cheap and easy 2 pizza's for $10.

Friday: Chicken Stir Fry and Veggies.
Last week I received a bottle of olive oil from mom select to review. I used it with some seasoning for leftover chicken wraps last week. If you see it in your grocery store I highly recommend it. The brand is California Olive Ranch. So many of my recipes call for EVOO so it's a pantry staple. The bottle also looks great out by the stove.
