On days like these, I crave soups, stews and chilis. Paired with some saltines or chips and sharp bar cheese slices, they can make any gloomy day better.
My husband has always talked about his Mom’s Taco Soup. So, while living with them until our hosue was finished, my mother-in-law shared the recipe with me. It has now made a spot in my “recipe rotation” and occupying my slow cooker at this moment! So quick and easy!
Now, I will share it with you!
1 pound mild sausage, browned & drained
1 can diced tomatoes and green chilis, (28-ounces)
1 can corn, undrained, (15 1/4-ounces)
1 can black beans, undrained, (15-ounces)
1 envelope dry Ranch Dressing mix
1 envelope dry taco seasoning
1 small onion, chopped
Tortilla, or corn, chips
Shredded cheese of your choice
Combine all ingredients except chips, shredded cheese, and sour cream in slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low 4 to 6 hours.
Garnish individual servings with chips, cheese, and sour cream.

Yes… I have been on yet another hiatus. This time it wasn’t all my fault. 🙂
Long story short, we had a sewage flood in the home that we were renting that caused massive contamination of the third floor of the home. Considering the conditions and the fact that we have a toddler, the hubby and I decided it was best if we just call it quits at that location. We are in the process of building a new home, but it is not quite ready yet. So, in the mean-time, we are living with the in-laws, in the bonus room, above their garage……… down by the river. No, seriously, the Flint River. 🙂 (Hey, gotta make light of the situation any chance I get!) All jokes aside, we are very thankful that we have this option.
Our nephew, Clayton, loves Star Wars and just turned 6. So guess what?! He had a Star Wars Party! And I got to help out! Here are a few pictures from the celebration.
With all my friends buying school supplies for their littles, I am reminded of the joy I felt when going with my mom to buy new crayons, notebooks, pencils and the other necessities to begin school in the fall.
It was something about the unused, undisturbed, colorful objects that were mine… that were going to help me succeed that year. Not because they made me better at my school work, but because of how they made me feel!
