Slow Cooker Sriracha Roast Beef Chili Recipe">Post image for <span id=Slow Cooker Sriracha Roast Beef Chili Recipe" />

I know what you are thinking.

What am I going to do with all this leftover roast beef?

That’s not what you are thinking? How about what am I going to do with this extra pork, chicken, turkey? (You can adapt this recipe to use any protein really.)

When my husband said he was going to use roast beef for chili, I thought he was a bit off his rocker but heck, if he was going to cook dinner, I was going to keep quiet.

Guess what? It was great! So great, that I wanted to share it with you.

Don’t you like how we ‘kicked it up a notch’?

On My Nightstand: The Fringe Hours & Flesh and Blood">Post image for <span id=On My Nightstand: The Fringe Hours & Flesh and Blood" />

This past two weeks, not only have the children been off from school, but I have had a few days off as well. In addition, the round of illnesses have been going through our house, as with many, so there have been some quiet days.

During the quiet times, I have been taking advantage of one of my favorite pastimes: reading.

I normally only find a few minutes to read at bedtime, and depending on how well the book captures me, I will often miss a few hours of sleep in order to get in some more time reading.

Speaking of ‘finding time’, the book ‘The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You’ covers the topic of finding time for oneself. I will let you know my thoughts on the book, once I finish reading it.

The other book, I have been reading, is ‘Fresh and Blood’ by Patricia Cornwell. I have been a long time fan of the Scarpetta series, and for the second year in a row, my friend ‘Kim #2′ has gifted me the latest for my Birthday.

What are you reading?

Raise your hand if your children have a smartphone on their Christmas list this year. Yup, I thought so. Like you, my husband and I have been having the ‘Do we want the kids to have a phone?’, ‘Is this the right age?’, ‘What rules do we set?’ and ‘How do we monitor the activity?’ […]

Each year, my husbands’ family has a Christmas party and this was our year to host. There are cousins, aunts, uncles, grandmas and grandpas and more. There is a food buffet (shrimp mozambique, vegetable lasagna, codfish and many Portuguese dishes) & a dessert spread that would rival your wildest dreams. Best of all is the […]

Wow, Wednesday night’s #GiveDeerCheer Twitter party with Dancing Deer Baking Co. was fun and sweet. Now when I say sweet, I do not mean sweet because of the Dancing Deer baked goods – although they are delicious – but because of all the memory sharing and reminiscing that we did. In case you missed it […]
