- quick recipe of the week -

Happy Monday friends! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Can you believe that it is October already?? CRAZY! 

I have the cutest blogger here today to share another yummy recipe with you! Meet Lindsay, the girl behind the blog, Lee La La  .

Lindsay is also a very talented crafter. She has her own Etsy shop that you should really check out. I would absolutely die for this wrap bracelet and could totally see it being a daily wear for me!

Lindsay was over the moon excited to be contributing a recipe for me today because as a momma, she knows how important it is to have QUICK and EASY recipes on hand at all times! (Amen to that!) She also knows how easy it is to get into a cooking slump where you end up cooking the same recipes over and over. That's why sharing recipes is so great! Today, Lindsay is sharing a quick and easy recipe that is always a hit with her family. Have you ever tried Paula Deen's Taco Soup? A friend of Lindsay's recently introduced her to it, and she's been hooked ever since! She could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. (This must be a really good recipe! )

Taco Soup
2 lbs ground turkey
2 cups diced onions
2 cans pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can kernel corn, drained
1 can Mexican style stewed tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomatoes with chile's
2 (4 1/2 oz) cans of diced green chile's
1 can black olives, drained and diced
1/2 cup green olives, drained and diced
1 package of taco seasoning mix
1 package ranch salad dressing mix

 Brown the ground turkey and onions in a skillet.Transfer the browned turkey to a crock pot. Add the rest of your ingredients (above) into crock pot. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Garnish with Frito's, sour cream, and grated cheese.
