I love the crock pot.  Especially when it’s chilly outside.  Especially since we both work full-time.  Especially when you want dinner RIGHT when you get home!

Turkey taco chili:

1 pound ground turkey

1 package Taco seasoning

1 can Rotel tomatoes

2 cans Chili beans

2 cans Red Kidney beans

1 can Black beans (‘cuz I love ’em!!)

1/2 chopped onion

garlic…however, much you like…

Mix it in the crock pot.  Put it on low and let it go.  Serve over whole wheat penne or regular elbow macaroni…top with cheddar cheese and sour cream and delish!!!  Even our pickiest kids had seconds!

 

And in the morning if you run out of that old powdered hot chocolate mix and it’s cold outside…..takes a few extra minutes, but worth it!!

On the stovetop…..6-8 cups milk (we use fat free), 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 cup baking cocoa powder.  Mix until hot.  Serve with 2 big marshmallows or lots of small ones.  Didn’t even need to add sugar.

Happy day and stay warm!!

**I’ll be back with Goals in the next couple of days……
