Slow Cooker Beef Tacos

WE LOVE TACOS!!  Really I mean, I could eat them every day.  My kids love them and they are so easy to make.  This recipe is one of our favorites using a beef roast and your slow cooker.  Dump all ingredients in the slow cooker and walk away.  After work you will have about 5 minutes of dinner prep time.  That’s it!  Easy!  Faster than the drive thru!

Jalepeno Steak

Steak + Jalepenos = YUM!!

I think this is a marriage made for even a concrete cowboy.   Good ole steak with a  spicy twist.    We LOVE this recipe!  Double, triple or quadruple it and freeze for easy steak dinners in the weeks ahead.  OH my yes!  I think we will be adding this to our Memorial Day recipes.

Thirsty Thursday: Cherry Vanilla Lime Sprite

Thirsty Thursday: Cherry Vanilla Lime Sprite by Brooke at 5Dinners1Hour.Com

A Cherry Vanilla Lime Sprite is a staple of my childhood. I have many memories of time spent with my Mom driving into a Sonic on summer night just to get our special treat. You must order it exactly as I’ve said, “Cherry Vanilla Lime Sprite”. This is not to be confused with a cherry vanilla limeade, trust me on this one.

Or you can forgo the possible mishap with the carhop and just make one yourself!

What you need:

*2 Tablespoons Cherry Juice (I use the juice from the cherry jar, could also use Cherry Grenadine)

*1 & 1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

*2-3 Fresh Lime Wedges

*Sprite

To Make:

*Fill a glass with ice, pour in first two ingredients and then squeeze in the fresh lime juice.

*Pour in Sprite to fill the glass.

*Serve and enjoy!
