Waking Up Is Hard To Do...

WARNING: This is a total mom-blogger post.

I wanted to post this sweet video of my little Jonah Bear waking up. I think he is just so cute when he struggles to come out of a comfy nap. He makes it look so hard!


My favorite parts are the silly faces he makes and his "spring loaded" arms when the swaddle wrap is opened up.

My little man is growing up so fast.

Chicken Taco Chili - Crockpot

This is basically my hubby's new favorite meal. He can't get enough of it, and it's easy for me to make! I found it on Pinterest here. Bonus points: if you don't add the cheese or sour cream, it's actually pretty healthy.
 
Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

1 onion, chopped
1 16-oz can black beans
1 16-oz can kidney beans
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
10 oz package frozen corn kernels
2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes
1 packet taco seasoning
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
24 0z. (3) boneless skinless chicken breasts
 
Combine everything but the chicken. Place chicken on top and cover. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in. You can try it with cheese and/or sour cream. We love to put crushed tortilla chips in it for a little crunch.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Mardi Gras




Last year for Mardi Gras Justin and I ate jambalaya and beignets. This year we basically did the same. However, this year I didn't use Tiana's recipe, instead I used beignet mix by Cafe du Monde.
 
It was WAY easier, and tasted just as good if not better. We found out about Cafe du Monde when Justin's father went to New Orleans for work last year.

Mardi Gras was very low key with Jonah this year, but I think it was just as fun as last year! I'm looking forward to more things we get to share with Jonah in 2012.
