The Joys of having a Slow Cooker!!

So I was trying to think of what I was going to make for dinner one night and I came upon this recipe that looked really good and easy. I am all about easy.  Its called "Creamy Black Bean Burritos" but I also like to call it "It's so yummy I could die!" ha ha The nice thing about it is that you cook it in a slow cooker so you really don't have to do anything, and by the time you get home from work, errands or whatever dinner is already done. You guys should try it out and let me know what you think.

Things you will need....

Oh and i forgot Tortillas!!

  • 2-4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 can corn (drained)
  • 1 can black beans (drained)
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  1.  Place chicken breasts into crock pot.
  2. Add chicken, chicken broth, salsa, corn, black beans and taco seasoning.
  3. Cook 2-3 hours on High, 4-6 hours on Low.
  4. When done take chicken out and shred.
  5. Add sour cream and cheese to the sauce.
  6. Mix
  7. Add chicken to sauce.
  8. Mix

Serve on warm Tortillas..........

We LOVE this dinner so I hope you do too.

War of the Buttons!

Last week Natalie and me had a girls night out! It was so much fun. We talked, laughed and made really cute button earrings. I got this idea from my really good friend Haley on her blog Life is Sweet! She is so creative and cute. I just loved this idea because I only own 1 pair of earrings, so we gave it a try. Haley made it look like a piece of cake, but I guess for people like me who have no creative bone in their body its a little more difficult. ha ha After lots of trial and error and not to mention lots of burnt fingers I finally got the hang of it and I just LOVE how they turned out. I went from having 1 pair of earrings to having 7 pair all while hanging out and having some great laughs. I wear them all the time and always get compliments. Thanks Haley. :)


 Crying over our burnt fingers!! ha ha We are such Babies. :)
