Easy, Meatless, Filling, and Cheap!

Sometimes I really just want something filling, tasty, and cost effective. So my awesome crock pot chili started.

Canned Beans- 1 each of Black, Light red Kidney, Dark red Kidney, Navy, and Pinto.  .68 each
Large can crushed Tomato 1.00
Chili Seasonings- I just make my own so it comes straight from the spice rack.
    I use Cumin, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Chili Powder, and Cayenne Pepper to taste.

     In a 5 qt crock pot. Drain and rinse the beans and add to crock pot, pour in can of tomatoes, add water to cover beans, add spices. Turn on Low and cook for 8-10 hours.
        Serves 6-10 people.
I like mine several ways. Over baked potatoes, as is, over fries with cheese, in an omelette, or over a burger!
For under $5.00 I have enough to fill myself and the boys for several days and still have some to freeze for another day!

A TruMoo breakfast!

  This morning was the day to try out TruMoo on my boys.  We got our TruMoo free to try from BzzAgent.
There is a giveaway for Goosebumps on the containers too! Each lid has a code to enter to enter to win a trip to Hollywood, for a behind-the-scenes tour of FOX Studios! Plus, you'll visit old town Pasadena for a special effects experience. You also receive a printable coupon for any Goosebumps® DVD when you enter.
    I don't know about you but growing up I was addicted to the Goosebumps books and shows!

First up the food, I have a recipe that calls for using Chocolate Milk instead of plain milk for pancakes. So of course let's try out the TruMoo there.
   Chocolate Chip Pancakes
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
1 Egg
1 cup Chocolate Milk- TruMoo!!
2 Tbsp Veg oil
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Mini Chocolate Chips- We use regular sprinkled on top as per preferences of the boys.
Combine flour,sugar, baking powder, and salt.  In another bowl beat egg, milk, oil, vanilla, and Chocolate chips. Add to dry ingredients and mix well. Pour by 1/4 cupfuls onto lightly greased griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top.

  With our pancakes we had some of the Vanilla Milk!
     The Verdict:

The pancakes are a hit! 
LT loved his first taste of milk and loved his pancakes.

A wonderful and FUN breakfast!!!

BzzAgent: Halloween TruMoo Vanilla Milk (Orange)

  My second BzzCampain is for Halloween TruMoo Vanilla Milk that is colored Orange.

      For this one I was sent several coupons for $0.75 off to share with my friends and a coupon for me to get half a gallon free for myself to try out! I was also sent a few recipes to use the TruMoo with.  I can't wait to see how my picky picky toddler likes his orange milk.
                          I will update this one in a week once we have a chance to get to the store to pick it up and let the kids try it out!
   9/28- After 3 stores I found both the Chocolate and the Orange Milk!!! Can't wait to have some milk in the morning with our french Toast. Tried the Vanilla and OMG YUMMY!

Bzzagent : Curel(R) Intensive Healing Cream

So recently I joined Bzzagent so that I could try out some new items and give my opinions. Plus who are we kidding I love free!
    First I have been chosen to do a BzzCampain for Curel(R) Intensive Healing Cream.
      In my box I received 6oz of the cream to try and several coupons to share with my friends!

  I will be taking a before picture and starting to use this on Sept 24th on my most dry troubled area. My heels. I am also going to use this on both my children's knees which get really dry now that the weather is getting cooler.
            I will update weekly with how I like it. I have sensitive skin and finding things that don't irritate me is hard.

Before: 9/24/13

Not often will I show my feet. My ankles and heels are rough and dry. 

My first time using the cream I was surprised how soft my feet felt. I can't wait to see how they are as I continue to use the cream.

9/28- Just a quick update, So far there is a huge change in my heels! I really am happy that this cream hasn't made me break out like so many others in the past have.
