Who said milkshakes were not Winter appropriate?!

I could have settled for just a cappuccino milkshake, but after leaning halfway across the car and seeing ‘Cajun chicken sandwich’ and ‘onion rings’ staring at me how could a sweet Southern girl say no!? 

Branson ordered the barbecue sandwich Cookout tray with hush puppies, onion rings and a corn dog as his sides, and a Peach Cobbler milkshake!

I listened to my roaring belly and ordered the Cajun chicken sandwich with no mayonnaise, onion rings and fries ( I asked for Cajun seasoning but I guess I threw her all off by asking for no mayo) and my favorite milkshake everrrr, Mrs. Cappuccino!

Decided to break in the crockpot I got for Christmas with homemade chili :) Rainy days are perfect for crockpot meals!!

My chili recipe is so simple: just add two cans of kidney beans, browned beef, diced tomatoes, diced onions, can of tomato sauce, chili seasoning mix, tbsp minced garlic, hot sauce, onion powder and basil! Cook on low heat for 3-4 hours and Viola!! :)

I also decided to make my own saltine crackers! Thank heavens for the good ole world wide web…you can search for anything these days and find something special. This recipe truly did make me feel like a real Oregon trail woman! It was so simple and can be revised with extraordinary ingredients! For my trial, I stuck with plain iodized salt..in the future I will try sea salt or kosher salt for the coarseness! Overall they were a huge success :) I highly recommend trying them, you don’t have to be a professional cook to make them, just follow the directions! Easy!

Here’s the recipe I used: http://stresscake.wordpress.com/2010/04/28/something-easy-and-unlikely-homemade-saltines/
