Homemade Beef & Noodles in the Slow Cooker

Oh my comfort food.  A bowl of this with a green veggie side makes me a happy momma!  Have I mentioned how much I love my crockpot?  Swoon.

I adapted the recipe below from the original on found here

1 Beef Roast
1 beer-can or bottle
1 package dry onion soup
3 cloves of garlic
1 can of cream of golden mushroom soup (or the plain one)
8 cups of water (adjust as needed)
1 pound of homemade (store-bought) noodles

  1. Place roast in crock pot and pour beer, onion soup, and garlic over top.
  2. Cook on low overnight. 
  3. In the morning, break meat apart. Add the mushroom soup and six cups of water. Add salt and pepper to your liking. 
  4. Cook on low all day. 
  5. An hour before you eat, add noodles as well as more water. Up to four cups depending on how moist you like it.
**Warning, my crockpot turned off sometime during the day probably as a safety feature.  It still turned out ok, but just set me back a little because I had to wait for it to reheat**

I realized I never updated my Halloween Pictures.

My little guys were just adorable this Halloween and boy did they haul in the treats.

Alex dressed up as Spider Man for trick-or-treating at preschool and had a great time going around the classrooms getting goodies.

For actual trick-or-treating, Alex went as a fireman and Cameron went as his faithful companion, a dalmatian.  I have to pat myself on the back for decorating the wagon up as a fire truck. 

I liked getting into the spirit of the season.  It is such a let down when the trick-or-treaters that do come around have no costumes or manners :(

Good thing I got this up before the next holiday!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

I love spicy Buffalo Chicken and this tasty recipe was a snap to make.

I found this on Pinterest originating from here but below is my own variation and recommendations.

3-4 Chicken Breasts (I used fresh)
Franks Red Hot Sauce (regular or buffalo)
Dried Ranch Dressing Mix
2-3 tbsp. butter

Place Chicken in Slow Cooker
Pour approx. 1/2 bottle of sauce on top
1/4 to 1/2 of the dressing mix.  (I used 1/2 and found it to be too salty)

Cook on low for 6-8 hours

Shred up the chicken, add more sauce or a little water if necessary, but the chicken will shred up perfectly.
Put butter on top for about 15 more minutes, stir and then serve

**I think adding a little cream cheese to this recipe also might be a nice addition, but I'd melt that in the slow cooker prior to adding the chicken**

This is so yummy and very versatile to serve with anything.  I especially love it mixed in a cool salad with a little ranch dressing.  With the Super Bowl coming up too this would be a…

Pirate Party Game - Ring Toss

Why didn't I think of this?!  I came across this from Hostess with the Mostess site, my go-to party planning inspiration blog.  What an awesome game and pretty inexpensive if you were a savvy shopper and picked up the pirate hooks for $1 at Target along with some swim diving rings also in the $1 spot.

This would've been perfect for Alex's 4th Birthday Pirate Party where we played "Pin the Hook on Captain Hook".
