What's For Dinner?

My fabulous sister, Carla made us these Spoonburgers when we were at her house last week.  We LOVED them!  As I was writing down the recipe I realized I already have this cookbook!  LOL

Fix & Forget 50 Slow Cooker Recipes


Makes 6 servings [really more like 8]
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Slow Cooker Cooking Time: 3 to 4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low
Last-Minute Cooking Time: 5-10 minutes on stove top

1 1/2 pounds extra lean ground beef
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley [I used a dash of dry]
1 can [8 oz.] tomato sauce
1 can [8 oz.] stewed tomatoes, cut up and juice reserved [I bought a regular size can of Rotel, seeing stewed tomatoes makes me gag I didn't drain them either]
1 can [4 oz.] chopped green chilis
1 T chili powder
1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/4 t salt
1/2 t paprika
1/4 t pepper
Toasted split buns or cooked pasta [I used a loaf of pre-sliced french bread from the bakery on clearance for $0.90 YIPPEE]

1.  Crumble ground beef and place in a slow cooker.  [I used a wooden spoon and smashed it down to cover the bottom evenly.]  Throw everything else on top.  [I didn't stir it or anything]

2. Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours or until vegetables are tender.

3.  Spoon over buns or pasta.

Serve with French fries and pickles.  [We had salad and corn]

I don't like meatloaf or sloppy Joes.  These are some how a combo of them and I love it!  SO YUMMY!  Morgan and Bryan really like it too so it's a winner over here!  Carlee won't even try it.   Yes she is cute but so stubborn you can't even believe it!  LOL

I am totally in love with my crock-pot.  The house doesn't get hot.  I don't have to do much to make dinner happen and that leaves more time for the scrap room!

I still have not made a single card or page!  Last night I moved all my Unity stamps!  It took me 3 hours LOL  Because you know the earth was just about to stop spinning if I didn't have all the co-brands together and all the singles together.  Now there are piles of rubber all over my room!  I need more thin stufftainers in a BIG way!  LOL

Good thing my sister has been using my {ippity} stamps so I still have some more stuff to show you guys!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey, Noelle!! This recipe looks yummy! :)

Just wanted to swing by to say thanks for being so super efficient with my recent order with the {ippity} GC I won! Thought you might like to see the results of some of the playing around I did with my new THE BEST set:

Thanks again!

Oh, this sounds SO yummy! I love my crock pot too, I really need to get back to using it so my poor family can have a decent meal! :)

I'm glad Bryan likes it as well. Just so you know, I threw my ground beef in there frozen! It adds a couple of hours to the cook time, but it can be done! We are having biscuits and gravy for dinner tonight. Then I'll have to go ride eight miles so I can fit in my pants tomorrow. It all evens out that way!
