A few of my favorite things...

to eat these days. =)

Ms. Mollie's Taco Soup

5-6 cans of your choice of beans (my faves are black, kidney and garbanzo)
1 can tomato sauce\
1 can corn
2 packets Taco Seasoning
1 packet Ranch dressing mix
about 3 cups water

I like to add spanish rice to mine but, I serve it on the side because not everyone likes it.

You can use any kind of meat you'd make tacos with (or no meat).
I usually brown or cook the meat then throw everything in the crockpot on low for several hours. You can also just do it on the stovetop if you're making it last minute. =)

I serve it with shredded cheddar, Fritos and sour cream. If you're serving a large group you can always make meats separately and serve on the side (to be added) just in case there are vegetarians in the group. =)


MamaFox's Peanut Butter Cup Protein Smoothie

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 scoops of your fave chocolate protein powder (I use Body Fortress Whey Protein)
4 tbsp Peanut Butter
As much ice as you like

I use my Magic Bullet to blend for a few seconds...but any blender will work.

Delish and it stays with you and keeps your belly full for quite some time. =)

Have a nice week.

I can't wait to try the Taco Soup. We're having our neighbors over (and their four kids) so I am gonna make a big pot for us all to enjoy. Thanks for sharing your "favorite" recipe.
I still check in on Hadley's page. Stay strong. You're in our prayers.
Thanks - the Sisson's
