Chilly Weather Calls for Chili…and a DELISH dessert!

Crock-Pot will be set on LOW. How does that word sound? Crock-Pot?? That is the magic word especially for moms! I love anything that is a crock pot recipe. I’m always looking for good meals that don’t take all day to make.

The weather has cooled off which means it’s time for yummy soups and other hot dishes. I for one LOVE chili. I rarely eat it unless it’s cold out so now I have an excuse to make it. I found the most amazing recipe through my friend Melinda Wareham and it is seriously THE BEST chili I have ever made.

1 pound beef- browned, drained
3 celery stalks, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves minced garlic
2 cans chili beans with sauce
1 can tomato sauce
1 large can diced tomatoes (including liquid)
1 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp, 1-1/2 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp red cayenne pepper
2 tsp paprika
Cook on low for 8-24 hours
Add salt to taste after its cooked if needed. I personally didn't add any.It was perfect without.

This recipe has some kick to it. It is definitely spicy and if you don't  like much spice, I would cute the pepper measurements in half.

Now on to a delish dessert. Butterscotch Haystacks for the win!
I was at Target and saw bags of butterscotch chocolate everywhere. I decided to make these and I was pleasantly surprised. They are SUPER easy for
moms on the go like me. Here it is, short and sweet.

1 2/3 cups (11oz) Nestle Toll House Butterscoth Morsels
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 package of chow mein noodles
3 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

Microwave the butterscotch for about 45 seconds.

Next, add the marshmallows and peanut butter and mix with a spatula.
Last but not least, add the chow mein noodles and then place them on the
cookie sheet in clusters.

Stick the cookie sheet in the fridge for about 30 minutes and then EAT!
