Easter Basket for Kaidi

I found this adorable Easter Basket idea for Miss Kaidi and I cannot wait to get started on it. I am going to go check out the Christian Service Center today to see if I can find a basket worthy of using. Anyway, here is the pic of the basket I found on the internet.
The price for this basket is $38.00 and I just KNOW that I can do it for WAY cheaper than that. I already have paint, so all I have to do is find a basket! Hope to upload some pics of it in a few weeks.

Beef Stew (SUPER EASY)

Saturday night, I had plans to go out with some girl friends to see a movie. I decided I would put on this easy beef stew for Gregg to eat for supper and for me to have as leftovers to bring to work this week (I am actually eating this as I post). This is another crock pot meal. ( I LOVE COOKING IN THE CROCKPOT). Anyway here is the recipe:

3 pounds of cubed beef
4 c chopped potatoes
2 c. chopped carrots
1/2 chopped onion
2 jars of beef gravy
salt and pepper

All you do is throw all of that together in the crockpot, mix it up real good and cook it on low for 6-7 hours. I usually put my beef in first and some salt and pepper to it and stir it around, then add the rest of the ingredients and then of course add some more salt! :) I actually took pics so I will be sure to upload and add to this post when I get home!
Hope You Enjoy! :)

Who doesn't love Chili! :) Thought I would share with you how we make chili at our house:
This is what you need:
1 lb hamburger meat
1 pack of chili mix
2 cans of tomato sauce
2 cans of chili beans

Ok, brown your hamburger meat, drain, add all the rest of the ingredients and about a can and or two of water and stir together we also add quite a bit of salt too. Cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes and it is ready! How simple is that? I like to mix mine with some shredded cheese and scoop it with some Frito's. What do you like with your chili?
