Chili Time

Well yup, we had ANOTHER snow day yesterday!  Ugh, so over the snow!  I know many working moms out there would love a "snow day" to stay home with their little dumplings but seriously it's so frustrating when it interrupts your plans for the day and you have to deal with whiny kids all day.  

I was thankful that I got a good run in the morning while the boys played in the basement.  I made pancakes for breakfast and we watched movies.  I always feel lazy on snow days.  It ended up being a good day but I was glad to be back at school today.  

We got about 3-5 inches mostly overnight and early morning.  It's super cold here, in the single digits.    Thankfully today they were back to school!  We had a fun lunch with friends at CFA after school and now we are warming up at home anticipating some warm Chili for dinner!  With it SO cold outside it's time for some hot Chili.  We like our chili with cornbread and/or corn chips.  Here is my favorite Chili recipe!

11/2-2lbs ground beef
1 med onion
1 big can of diced tomatoes
1 big can tomato sauce
1 big can of kidney beans
1 package of McCormick Chili Seasoning

Brown beef in a skillet and add onion.  Drain off the grease.   
Drain kidney beans
Add diced tomatoes, tomato sause, kidney beans, chili seasoning and drained beef to crockpot.  
Cook on low in crockpot for 6 hours.  
Serve and Enjoy!
