So perfect for this freezing snowy day.
Quick and easy I tell you.
Package of Chili seasoning
a couple Garlic Cloves-chopped
1 small can Tomato Sauce
1 regular can Tomatoes (here I used fire roasted)
1 can RoTel Tomatoes & Chiles
1 package Lean Ground Beef
I cook my own beans- black, kidney, red
I used 5 laddles worth-juice included
or of course canned works too
1 can black
1 can kidney
1 can red or pink
In my crockpot I heat up the beef, onions, garlic, seasoning.
Then just add in all the canned items plus 1 cup water.
Simmer 6 hours.
Serve with Fritos, shredded cheese, sour cream, jalapenos.........
Now to be gluten free just check your seasoning package and select a different one if needed, obviously to be dairy free leave off those select toppings, slightly lowcarb/primal due to the beans you could always eliminate those and of course the Fritos too
(not in the picture but it is now)
6.5 x ....rows are sewn
1.5 x .... rows are sewn
I'm really liking the look of it, it is child sized,
now for backing thoughts, I looked through all my yardage, I'm going to go Gender Neutral with this, the backing is black based with an array of colors making up the ABC's with coordinating pictures, perfect match for the scrap solids

the anytime egg-
this is so easy, quick and versitle anyone can make this.
We have had this for breakfast, lunch, snack and yes, even dinner.
In a small pan,
heat up a tad of oil/butter/spray (whatever you like to use).
Place in corn tortilla, cook until slightly golden & flip for a minute, move it to your plate.
Place in your favorite breakfast meat (pictured here is a thick ham slice) I love bacon, it can even be sausage, heat/cook through, place on tortilla.
Add on your favorite cheese to the meat (pictured here is pepperjack) or if your dairy free (like me) skip this step.
Heat up a tad more oil/butter/spray if needed, fry egg, or scramble it if you'd like, place on cheese.
Top it off with tomato, avocado, jalapeno (or not).

learn more about quilting
First Quilt Block
I am so happy with how it turned out.
I lost 1/2 an inch some where but I added the small trim to the edge to make up for it. 12x12
I was quit impressed with how quick it came together

Woot! School starts tomorrow!
This was a long Winter Holiday for sure.
Mr was home on half days and had 2 4 days in a row. The monkeys were off from the 16th thru today. C planned out his work & play pretty well, J was starting to hint on cabin fever, L was honest and admitted missing school about 4 days ago. A is .... well .... locked up :( that boy!
We picked up a new to us Explorer-here's to hoping it helps the Mr's hip abit.
I decorated the outside with tons of white lights-just for them to keep blowing out every few hours. The tree was mine this year- I worked it up in Purples & Golds, vintage wooden ornaments and red bows. Just lovely I tell you. The house was also decorated in Wooden Objects only.
I'll get up a few pics shortly.
Christmas was a hit, we toned it down compaired to what we've done in the past. The kids got to ask "Santa" for one big thing, and ask "us" for a couple little items.
We stuck to it well.
Heres a toast (with my glass of Pinot) to a great Year ahead for us all and GoodNight.
