Recipe: Crock-Pot Weeknight Chili

Made this recipe from Crock-Pot's Original Slow Cooker recipe book.

Sooooo yummy! It is a hearty chili with just the right amount of kick! The ingredient list is short, so chances are you have all the ingredients on hand at any given time.

I used this recipe for the chili seasoning since I didn't have any store-bought packets in my pantry. 

Gift Idea: Christmas Cash

Every year, my mom's family has our annual Christmas Party with my grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins. Each year, my aunt comes up with a unique gift exchange game. This year I searched and searched Pinterest for gift ideas in our designated price range.

I found a creative way to give cash. This was a huge hit with my twenty-something cousin who ended up with my gift as well as everyone else who wished they had ended up with this gift.
