I just have to say, I am proud of our Mizzou Tigers!
On New Year's Day, we headed over to a friend's house to watch the Cotton Bowl with some friends. We had a great time! The Tigers played an amazing game. Everyone showed up and played their hearts out. And, I have to say, they deserved the win.
I took Cowboy Soup over for lunch. It is a recipe that is really easy and tastes great. Here it is:
2 lb. Ground Beef (cooked with onions and drained.) I used 1 lb ground beef and 1 lb ground sausage. This was the first time I had done that, but we liked the outcome.
2 cans Ranch Style Beans
3 large cans Minestrone Soup
1 soup can water
1 can Rotel
16-24 oz. Velveeta
Combine all ingredients in crock pot. Cook on low all day. (This time, since it was for lunch, I cooked it on high ~3 1/2 hours.)
Eric, the host, had gotten a Nintendo Wii for Christmas, so of course, during half-time, we had to see what all of the hype was about. I can now truely say, the hype is right on! We played bowling, baseball, tennis, and boxing. I did ok for everything but boxing. It was such a workout! Andrew and I were going at it for 1 round and I was sweating, breathing hard, and my heart rate was up. No kidding! It is cheaper than a gym, and a lot more fun! I think we are going to have to bite the bullet and go buy a Wii! Who would have thought it?
Anyway, head over to the Family Corner for more Crockpot recipes on her Slow Cooking Thursday meme.
