1 onion chopped (you can also throw in chopped bell pepper and jalapeno if you like)

  • brown the beef with the onion

2 cans Ranch Beans
2 cans Corn
1 can Rotel with green chilies
2 cans water
1 package ranch seasoning/dressing packet
1 package Taco seasoning

  • Mix all these ingredients together and simmer 25 minutes.

Top off your Taco Soup with chips and cheese.

1st Haircut at the Magic Kingdom: 6 Tips to make the long line less painful

While at Disney World we took J to the Magic Kingdom for his 1st haircut! He did really good, it was only $14, and he received Mickey ears and a certificate! 

Here are a few tips in case you are thinking of having your child's first hair cut at Disney World

1. Get to the park as early as you can.  Be there when the gates open.  I mean the gates right in front of the Magic Kingdom, not the monorail. 

2. Head to the barber shop as soon as you get into the park.  It is on the left of the circle before you start walking down main street over in a corner. 

3. There will be a line and there is usually only two ladies doing hair.  If you get lucky there might be three.  They get regular breaks; you are going to be in line a while! 

4. Keep in mind your other kids can get their hair done as well.  They have a cool dude for the guys.  This consists of hair paint and sparkle confetti.  They do the same thing for girls, but they will do a pony tail or a bun with hair paint and sparkle confetti. 

5. While you are waiting in line one adult can keep the place in line while the other takes the kids to meet characters.  We were in line for so long my kids met Chip n Dale and the cows.  (I don't know their names)  We got in the line at 9:30 only 30 minutes after the park opened but the line was so long we were in it for over an hour. 
6. Do Not wait until later in the day to get this done.  They close early around 4 PM.
To keep the kids from moving all over the place they stick stickers all over the smock and their clothes.  The kids focus on moving around or taking off the stickers.

Easy Corn chowder recipe

I got this super delicious and easy Tex-Mex recipe for corn chowder from my friend Kristin.


2 cans cream of potato soup
1 can cheddar cheese soup
1 can cream style corn (I like corn so next time I am going to use 2 cans)
2 cans of half and half
1 can of milk (OR you can do all milk or all half and half for the milk and half and half)
diced up cooked ham or cooked bacon (can use jar of real bacon bits)
Onion (dried if want) (sprinkle)
Thyme (sprinkle) (1 tsp+)

Combine soups in a large pot and stir. Slowly stir in milk/half and half. Stir in rest of ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook 30 minutes to an hour or until hot.

If you would like to kick it up a notch throw in a can of Rotel
