Crock Pot Cajun Chili

Standard

Well I have a lot to say today, first of all what a dominating performance by LSU in their 45-10 win over Auburn yesterday! In front of the second largest crowd in Tiger Stadium history (93,098), LSU completely dominated a good Auburn team in all three phases of the game – offensive, defense and special teams. The 35-point margin of victory was the largest ever in the 46-game series against Auburn dating back to 1901.

I have to confess that I had to tape the game and watch it later. That is something I really do not like to do. My Saturdays are such a ritual, I always cook and do my blogging and watch my football team. Yesterday was an exception, my daughter had an opportunity to attend a workshop with our good friend Marla that has a great talent company called It’s a F.A.C.T. I just have to tell you how impressed I was with all the unbelievable talent right here in Albany, GA! These kids are not only talented, but they are kind, good-hearted children. You can just tell they were raised right. I have a feeling these kids will go far with their acting careers. I was so grateful that I let my selfishness go out the window and spend the day with this astonishing group of kids. Their parents must be swollen with pride with them and Marla for their commitment to this outstanding program. What a great Saturday to spend with Alli and all these beautiful children.

Also, today is my Savory sister’s 1-year anniversary and I want to wish her and her husband Andy a very happy anniversary! One year ago, Amy and I along with some wonderful friends and family pulled together an extraordinary event. Yes, Amy and I planned, cooked, decorated, facilitated, and directed her entire wedding. Can I just tell you it was absolutely grand. If it were not for all our friends and our beautiful stepmother we would have never accomplished this beautiful event. We had such an enormous time and the food was to die for. It is quite amazing what you can accomplish with a little help from your friends and family!

With all this being said, here is our recipe for Crock Pot Cajun Chili! This is an easy recipe and you can even make it the night before. It is better the next day. It is really lip smacking good! Hope you enjoy!
