when we moved in we knew that the heater was shot.
turn it on and you all will die, broken.
but in my cali way I was convinced that
we could go the entire winter without one.
It only took four days of indoor temps dipping below 55 to change my mind.
our high maintenance children like to be warm when they sleep.
I know... demanding!
so today we have a new heater.
the drama queens only have to wear one pair of pajamas to bed.
an upside to all of this frostiness
has made me crave cozy warm food.
food that I can dump in the crock pot so I have time to work.
my fave meal.
by way of alicia, by way of carolyn.
Santa Fe Soup
1 lb. ground beef/ turkey/ whatevs/ browned and drained
1 can kidney beans
2 cans Ro-tel
1 can stewed Mexican style tomatoes
1 can corn (drained)
2 Tbs. taco seasoning
16 0z. Velveeta cubed
Don't give me that
"ewwww.... Velveeta is creepy!" face.
Yes. Velveeta is creepy.
But sometimes creepy things are really awesome things in disguise. Plus, it doesn't work with regular cheese. I've tried. Talk about creepy.
So get over it.
I promise you won't regret it.
I really heart my crock pot.
I heart this meal.
But want to make it
the. best. meal. ever?
I am pretty much 99.9% sure it is why God created corn.
