Guess what day it is! That's right Tasty Tuesday!
Today I have some crockpot chili! I was somewhat skeptical at first because, I've only made this one other time before but forgot how. I could never remember how my grandma made hers so I kind of jus made up my own and to my surprise it turned out pretty good! Even the baby ate it!
So to get started you'll need a crockpot and the following ingredients:
*1 can of Tomato paste
*1 can of Tomato sauce
*1 can of diced tomatoes
*2 cans of kidney beans
*2 beef bouillon cubes
*2 bay leaves
*Meat of your choice
A little secret...This was only supposed to be a 5 ingredient recipe..oops!
I didn't have any fresh onion so I used my dried chopped onion, not the same but it worked and my meat of choice was hamburger.
I cooked my meat and put everything in the crockpot then added the meat last.
Then I just mixed it all up and turned it on. Now, don't do what I did, which was start it on high and not realize it until later..again oops! I would recommend low for maybe 4-5 hours or so. And because I started mine on high it was a little on the dry side so I added another can of Tomato sauce and it was okay.
Just garnish with your favorite toppings and enjoy! We did cheese and sour cream and of course can't forget the corn bread!

So here it is! When I found it, it was named "strawberry banana cheesecake salad." That's to long for me to say every time so I just went with "the fluff stuff", but please call it whatever you'd like.
What you need:
*3-4bananas (I use 4) cut up
*1-2 packages of strawberries (I use 2) cut up
*1 pack of cheesecake flavoring
*1 tub of cool whip
*2 cups of vanilla flavored yogurt
*1 bag of mini marshmallows
*3-4 graham crackers (more or less for your taste)
This is so easy! You just put everything, except the graham crackers, in a bowl and mix it. Save some strawberries and bananas for the topping, and when everything is all mixed up cut up some of the strawberries and bananas and put them on top, then take the graham crackers and crush them up and put them on last. Easy peasy!
I like to start with the marshmallows first and the fruit last, but you can do it how ever you want.
Before the mix
All mixed up
I can't believe how easy this is and how yummy it is! However the shelf life isn't very long :( maybe a day or two. The bananas start to turn brown and mushy and it starts to get a little sticky. I was sad when I had to toss the leftovers.
