Crock Pot Rice Casserole

I really had no idea what I was going to make for dinner I am trying hard to use up all those things in my pantry and fridge that get shoved to the back all the time. So I started throwing stuff together.lol Not really the best method but it what I was going with. :OP Here is what I ended up with:

1 & 1/2 cups Brown Rice
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Cup Dried Black Beans(or 1 can of Black Beans)
1 Cup Dried Kidney Beans(or 1 can of Kidney Beans)
2 Cups of Peas
2 Cups of Corn
4 Cans of Water
2 Cups of Shredded Chicken

I started by boiling my beans for about 30 minutes then rinsing well. I was hoping to avoid the black coloring from the black beans. Then I put everything but the peas and corn into the crockpot and turned it on. If you are going to cook it all day use low! If you want it in a couple hours use high! this was my biggest mistake.lol about 30 minutes before you are ready to serve add the peas and corn to the crockpot and mix them in. I served with corn bread and topped with a little Worcestershire sauce. Now I will point out this makes A LOT of food probably enough for 6+ adults.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place . With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25.

Build-A-Bear Thin Mint Bear Review and Giveaway

I've mentioned before my love of Build-a-Bear, there is nothing that brings a bigger smile to a child's face then being able to create their very own personalized furry friend. One of the great parts about Build-a-Bear is they are constantly updating the friends you can create. Right now they have a great selection on Valentines friends that you and your children can create and love. I got the chance this month to review a friend that is available just TODAY! The Girl Scouts Thin Mints Bear brings back so  many memories as of my time as a girl scout. I love that on one foot there is a Thin Mints cookie, which is my personal favorite!

In less then a year she will start here journey through the ranks of the Girl Scouts. My daughter simply loved this bear(as she does all her Build a Bear frien
