Friday's Favorite.....

Happy Friday everyone...Still Nasty and cold outside so todays Friday Favorite that I am going to share with you is my homemade veggie soup and triple rich chocolate cake both made in a crock pot..
The veggie soup is really simple and just tossed together..I use a large can of tomatoes sauce and a large can of diced tomatoes..Cut up my carrots and celery no onion cause I am allergic to onions but you could..Throw a can of corn and two cans of mixed veggies and use stir fry beef cubed up..Toss all together with seasoning of your choice, I use a lot... I use grarlic pepper, seasoning salt, beef cubes about 5, some celery salt and fill rest of crock pot with water and let go all day at least 6 hours..yummy and makes the large crock pot full...
My next yummy crock pot favorite is from the book 101 things to with a slow cooker..This book is a life saver...and since I am such a sweet lady I will share the recipe with you..It's called Triple Rich Chocolate cake.. Here we go

1 box of devil's food cake
4 eggs
1 cup of light sour cream
3\4 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of water
1 (3oz) package of instant chocolate pudding
1 cup of chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients by hand in a 2quart mixing bowl..Pour batter into a greased 31/2 to 5 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat 5-6 hours or until done in center..Do not cook on high heat.. serves 8-10 It says its important to combine all ingredients by hand and not with a mixer..

and of course since I am taking the easy way for dinner why not some Rhodes frozen bread..You get three loafs and you just set out a loaf in the morning to rise and now fresh baked bread to go with the soup,,,yeah easy cooks in 20 min,,smells like you baked bread all day heheheh note mine is not risen all the way....
and this is the book I so love on this crappy rainy cold Friday... Hope you enjoyed...

Thursday thoughts:)

Good afternoon everyone...Today I was inspired by a favorite blog of mine Debbi over at She is such a sweet lady and she shared a video of her craft room.. LOVE IT... I have craft room but nothing like the decorating she has in hers.. OMG.. So today's Thursday thought is, I am thinking of spicing up my space.. I kind of have stuff in the basement and not fully all in my room... So yup its cold and crappy outside so what better day to turn my thought to my own space and it more welcoming.. I am posting pics of now pls forgive the mess...and any and all ideas or much appreciated...
The above pic is when you first walk into my room.. That desk hold my so loved sewing machine from my dearest grandma I loved so..
This above pic is my ever so boring desk.. I need to spice it up some.. and clean up lol
Next we have the dreaded closet.. ugh is all I can say... HELP!!!!
And last the task of having to fit this stash in my craft room... I would leave it in this room in the basement but my hubby's parents are not well and will be moving in shortly with us... My father in law is in the hospital with copd and upon his release we want them to come here... Many prayers for him please..
