Living out of our Crock Pot & Taco Soup

These days, I do all of my cooking in the morning.  Every morning I make dinner, while the kids eat breakfast.  It goes in the crock pot or into a casserole dish, so that when Kaia gets home from school she can eat dinner.  I've managed to do this every Monday through Thursday, and it's been working well. I have just enough time to eat when I get home, and then whisk Kaia off to rehearsals. 

Yesterday's recipe smelled amazing before I even turned the crock pot on!

Taco Soup
1 lb browned ground beef,
1/3 cup chopped onion,
1 green pepper chopped,
1 c sliced cabbage,
1 large can of diced tomatoes,
1 can of pinto beans,
2 cups of water,
1 t beef bouillon,
1 packet of taco seasoning. Combine in crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve with sliced avocado and tortillas.

Super Proud Mommy Moment

I am not sure how many posts have been devoted to my Starlet, my Actress, my Diva... but I know it's been many.  She is big time now!  Not Broadway or Hollywood, but community theater.  The Warehouse Theater.  She auditioned for Annie, along with 110 other kids, and she is Kate the orphan!

Life just got into a whole new level of insanity with rehearsals every evening Monday through Thursday, and each Sunday afternoon.  My crockpot is in full-time use, and my Suburban is going through the fuel.  But, it will all be worth it when the show opens on Thanksgiving, and our Star gets to do what she does best!
