Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship! I hate to love it or maybe I hate to love it. I have over 12,000 pins and probably have only used a handful of them. I love the convience of it when I'm looking for a recipe/DIY idea quick but then all of a sudden three hours later I have about 100 new pins pinned. The whole point of my Pinterest banter is because I have been in a cooking rut and we've been eating the same meals over and over (or just going out because really who wants dishes anyways?!) but we want to try different things and Pinterest (and my 25 Pampered Chef cookbooks) are a great start. Every week I plan on posting our five dinner meals along with recipes and pictures. If you have suggestions for great meals let me know!
We had Sonic for supper because we were out running errands.
-Tyson Grilled n Ready chicken breasts
-Real (red) mashed potatos and gravy
-Macaroni and Cheese
Crock Pot Tacos
Seriously the BEST and easiest tacos ever! When we make these we make a lot so we can have leftovers. I took 4 pounds ground beef (uncooked) and put it in the crock pot on high with some taco seasoning and water. I mixed the taco seasoning and water before adding it to the crock pot. I know people say to never lift the lids on crock pots because it looses heat but I like to stir the meat to make sure it's all cooking and in the sauce mixture. I cooked it for about 8 hours on high. The longer the better though. When I checked on the meat after about 4 hours I broke it up with a Pampered Chef mix n chop. A potato masher would work just as well.
All the typical toppings
-Chili's queso cheese dip (a new item I found in the freezer section at Walmart)
It was also Dustin's moms Birthday this day so I made a birthday cake.
