So much to do...

So much to do, so little time.  Sometimes I feel like I have filled my plate too full.  I have to set aside time for my kid, my husband, my family, my friends, my job, my home, ...and time for me?  Occasionally the balance seems a little out of whack--time to re-evaluate, change some things up, adjust the priorities ...and be thankful that my life is so full.

Life was just too full to pull off a big meal today--although I did find time this weekend to make Breakfast Pita's and a batch of bread, I didn't have the heart to make much more.  Besides, I took my family grocery shopping yesterday ( come it always costs more than when I shop alone??), and this is what they voted for for dinner tonight.

Wieners and Beans in the Crockpot 

3-4 cans brown beans ( if you are lucky and live in the US, you can get Bushes Beans, if you live here like me, you 'll have to make do with whatever is at the store-libby's or heinz are fine)
1 pkg wieners, cut up (we like to use the locally made ones--not so much junk and still tasty-you decide!)
1 onion chopped
6-8 mushrooms sliced
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tbsp ketchup
cracked pepper
 1/2 tsp crushed chilies

Mix all together in the crock pot and cook on low for 5-6 hours.  Serve with some nice crusty bread and maybe a salad... Yummy!
