Grace's Easy-Peasy Texas Chili

So I'm not really a cooking enthusiast, it takes way too much time to make something fancy that is just going to be inhaled in like 30 seconds (my boys, all 3 of them, eat fast and lots...and sometimes forget to thank the cook!), so I like to make it easy-peasy on myself.  I know it's not really chili weather yet, but this Monday called for something in the aforementioned "easy-peasy" I had some stew meat in the freezer that needed to be eaten.  So, here's my recipe for slow cooker Texas Chili..."Texas" because I used big ol' chunks of beef stew meat, and if you live in Texas beef is an essential part to any meal!  ;-)

Grace's Easy-Peasy Texas Chili

2 lb. Beef Stew Meat, seasoned with salt/pepper/garlic

2 cans Chili Beans (I used the Great Value brand, more bang for your buck!)

1 can of Red Beans (again, GV brand)

1 can of Pinto Beans

1 can of Zesty Chili Style Diced Tomatoes

Seasonings of your choice...sometimes I'll add some cumin, sometimes I just leave as is

Dump everything into your slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours, stirring every hour or so if desired.  Reduce to low for 2 hours.  Done!  Serve with Fritos & Shredded Cheese...for an extra healthy treat add sliced avocados on top!  This dish takes basically zero work, tastes great, is budget friendly!  See, easy-peasy!

So that's what's on the menu for tonight...I've already had a bowl and I'm going back for seconds!  Mmm!  

My two lil' dudes enjoying their dinner!  My big boy gets home late, so he'll enjoy his dinner after work...that's the great thing about slow cookers, your meal never gets cold!  Happy Monday, y'all!

Blessings, Grace

A few weeks ago I was talking to my youngest sister, aka Princess, who just happened to be my boys' nanny over the summer.  We were chatting after a fun (and rowdy) afternoon of chasing my little dudes around the splash park in our neighborhood.  The topic of Grace Note Gifts came up, and my lil' sis asked what new scents I was working on.  I wasn't working on anything in particular at the moment, so she had the idea for creating a line, if you will, of scents that would appeal to college aged kids (girls mostly since guys aren't really into this type of thing too much).  Some funny titles came up..."Ring by Spring, Study Break" and the like.  I thought she was really on to something!  Wax warmers along with scented wax tarts are great because unlike traditional candles you can use them in dorm rooms!  So, I would like to introduce to you my newest scent...Homesick...for those days when you want all the familiar scents of home to fragrance your life, wherever you happen to be!

 With notes of apple, cinnamon, clove & and hint of pumpkin, it's sure to remind you of good times spent at home!

This will be available in the coming weeks in my Etsy shop along with other new fragrances I'll be debuting.  

Thanks, Princess, for the inspiration!  Love you!

***If anyone is interested in getting a wax warmer to go along with their Grace Note Gifts Soy Wax Melts, please feel free to email me for a list of warmers I personally recommend!  You can reach me at:

{Favorite Finds Friday}: Sock Monkey Warmer

As you know I love candles, so you can bet I was super excited to find this little guy while I was out shopping with my boys yesterday...

I love the whimsical effect this Sock Monkey Wax Warmer has in my kitchen.  He is especially fun right now since he is warming up the "Monkey Farts" Soy Wax Melts that I, vanilla & bananas...Mmmm!  ;-)
