My Latest Pinterest Ideas

We have all been hooked on Pinterest for a while now.  I get great inspiration, dream a bit and have good intentions when I pin. 

Well, this week I decided to dabble a bit and put some ideas to the test.  Here is a sampling.

Taco SoupI had 6 kids here and they all had second helpings!  Soccer season is in full swing, so my crockpot is on overdrive.

Here is the recipe in her words:

The Ingredients:

there are a lot of cans. recycle. make Al Gore happy.

--2 cans of kindey beans

--2 cans of pinto beans

--2 cans of corn

--1 large can of diced tomatoes (I have no idea why the can wasn't in this picture. I know I put it in. This is a mystery.)

--1 can tomatoes and chiles

--1 packet taco seasoning (if you are gluten free, stick to McCormick)

--1 packet ranch dressing mix (make sure there isn't hidden gluten, I went with Hidden Valley)

--1 lb browned ground turkey or hamburger (optional.)

--shredded cheese and sour cream for embelishment (optional, unless you're in my house. then it's mandatory.)

The Directions:

--brown meat if you are going to use it

--drain fat and add to crockpot stoneware insert (the meat. not the fat.)

--sprinkle seasoning packets on top of meat

--drain and rinse the beans and add

--add the ENTIRE contents of the corn and tomato cans
--stir.

cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5. I think the longer you cook soup, the better, so if you have the time, opt for cooking on low. Stir well, and serve with a handful of shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream.

This lady used her crock pot every day for a year, and didn't repeat a recipe. Here's her collection of recipes.  WOW.

This gal used her crockpot everyday for a year and never repeated a recipe!  She is quite entertaining and she eats gluten-free!  Great ideas!
