Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili


I tried another recipe from pinterest.  This  is actually the second time I have made this recipe.  We had a pinterest party at school.  I had been collecting recipes for a while - but had never made one.  I decided that this would be a great time to start!  I cooked it all night - boy did it smell good when I woke up that morning!  I was one of the first to have lunch and it was so good!  I knew I loved it and was thrilled that this one was a big hit at my school!  But before I could post it - I had to give it another test - My Family!  Tonight was that test - it was a very big hit.  I served it with cheddar cheese on top this time - YUMMMMY!  Next time I will probably serve it with brown rice.  This is going to be a new one in my winter meal rotation!
