Today I am making Taco Soup for dinner, it’s an old Weight Watchers recipe, but I use my sister-in-law’s version. It’s very cheap and it makes a lot of food. I’ll be eating on this for the next several days. I got all the can goods at Aldi’s for less than 50 cents a piece.

Ingredients:

Taco seasoning mix

Ranch dressing seasoning mix

Stewed tomatoes (since I hate tomatoes to mask them I cut them up with a knife first)

Rotel (I use mild but I’m a wimp about heat)

Black beans

Kidney beans

Chili beans

Corn

1 lb browned hamburger (optional I didn’t have any so I didn’t use it this time)

Sour cream (optional)

Cheese (optional)

Tortilla chips (optional)

Instructions:

Empty cans into crock pot or large soup pot without draining, add seasoning mixes and let simmer for at least 1 hour. SO SIMPLE. Then garnish with sour cream and/or cheese, and you can use the chips like crackers. Sidenote: Check temperature after adding sour cream, might need to warm soup up in the microwave::

So the first fitness tracker I had bit the dust when I got a new phone, it wouldn’t sync to the new one. So I got another tracker, still an inexpensive one, only $20 this time but with better reviews at Best Buy and Google Play. It’s called a Misfit Flash, mine is fuschia because it was $11 cheaper for that color. It supposedly tracks your sleep as well so we’ll see how well it works.
