Christmas Morning

We had a lovely Christmas. 

Santa made a little accident and gave Ruthanne a leapster game she already had (woops, luckily I had some extra in the closet and I offered her one of mine for her Santa one). 

We had lovely cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

We relaxed and watched movies and chatted and enjoyed a quiet day.

All the pictures I took are linked below.

Tex Mex Crockpot Roast Recipe

I found this recipe last night and made it today. I modified it a bit and it was sooo yummy!

Tex Mex Crockpot Roast Recipe:
1 can chili beans
1-2 cups frozen corn
1 can rotel tomatoes/diced tomatoes with green chiles
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
1/2 tablespoon ranch seasoning (I keep a jar with the herbs already mixed)
1.5-2 lb roast (mine was pretty lean)

Throw it all into the crockpot and cook on low about 8 hours, or high about 4 hours. We served it over rice with shredded cheese and sour cream. Everyone ate it and liked it!

Since we have some cold weather blowing through, I thought we needed an appropriate dinner tonight. So we're having:

Chicken Corn Chowder


Hopefully it will be a success!
