But duty calls, and my family deserves more then fast food or cereal most nights. If it was up to my husband our 4 year old would be eating pancakes, ice cream, and sprite often. So what is a busy mom to do?
GET. A. CROCKPOT.
Or pull yours out of the cabinet that hold the appliances you never use.
For real.. do it, you won't be sorry.
It is so wondeful to come home at then end of a long day and you unlock your front door, arms laden with kids, school bags, mail, etc.. and you are greeted with the delicious smell of dinner.
Taco Soup is one of my "go to" crockpot recipes. My husband and I love it, and even though I cannot get our 4 year old to eat it, I do make sure I pull some browned ground beef aside for him before adding it to the pot. And the leftovers are even better for lunch the next day!
* 1 envelope taco seasoning
* 1 pound lean ground beef
* 1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans
