Crockpot Tri-Tip Tacos

  I saw tri-tip on sale at our grocery store and decided to give it a try. First we marinated it and then put it on the grill. And it caught on fire! haha it was still way yummy after we cut off all the burnt edges. So I figured that that probably wasn’t the best way to cook it with the marinade I had tried. The next time I got it I forgot about the “fire incident” and tried it again…same thing happened! So the next time I tried the crockpot. And boy was it good! We just ate …

On Memorial Day we spent the day swimming, picking peaches from a neighboring peach orchard, and then had a BBQ. Just our little family. It was great!

It was great and relaxing! I made these kabobs and my husband grilled them while I made the mini peach pies with the peaches we picked earlier in the day!

White Chicken Chili

About a month ago a couple of girls and I did a freezer meal swap. One of the girls brought this soup. We aren’t big soup people in my house. Well…lets just say the husband isn’t a big soup person. But I popped this in the crockpot to thaw out all day and ate it for dinner. My husband said “wow this soup is so good is it homeade?” I told him yes but just left it there. I wanted him to think that I made it myself! Later that night I felt guilty that I had pretended like I …
