Friday: Lasagna and Birthday cake!
Saturday: Beans and dogs and a veggie

Last Week the chili and corn bread were a big hit. I got the corn bread recipe off of the Food Network site. It is the Pioneer Woman’s recipe. It was the best cornbread I ever made. The chili recipe is my own. I literally just throw a bunch of ingredients in a crock pot and let it cook. So easy! So tasty!
I do use dry beans, but cook them ahead of time. You can use canned beans. I use black and red, but any favorite bean would be fine. I try and watch my salt intake and I feel the canned beans have a lot of extra salt.
Chili in the Crock pot
2 qt mixed beans (black, red, pinto, black eyed…)
1 lb hamburg (I have also used chicken) fried in skillet with a bit of oil
1 qt stewed tomatoes
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp tumeric
1 tsp pepper
Add everything in a crock pot. Put on high for one hour then turn to low for 5 to 6 hours. Serve with cornbread, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.
Do you put up a menu at your house? Do you struggle to find meal ideas every week? I know I do. I thought I would share my ideas and if you feel like it you could share yours. Comment below and leave a link to your menu for the week.
