It's Thursday again!

Time for -

1. If you won the lottery (a big one... I'm talking stupid muchos cash) what would you do with the money?

Buy land - a big piece of land. Like 500+ acres. Then set part of it up as a farm (sheep with a few cows and horses thrown it), part of it as wooded with hiking trails. Have an area for outdoor canine activities. And hold summer camps for inner city kids.

2. After winning the lottery would you work a day job? If so, what would you do?

Manage my place!

3. Do you have any auxiliary dogs? Auxiliary dogs are dogs that are not essential to your main purpose (usually tiny, but not always). If you don't have an auxiliary dog what might you choose?

No dogs but there is Toni, the resident Border Cat

And Pepper, who thinks he's a dog
If I did get a small dog it would probably be a Papillon or a perhaps a Border Terrier

4. Do you have a favorite crock pot recipe (or other recipe) you can share?

Easy Crock Pot Chili -

1-2# beef stew meat
1 large onion
3-4 15 oz cans of chili beans
2 15 oz cans of diced tomatoes

Cut up onion, place in crock pot along the stew meat. Cook overnight on low or 4 hours on high. Add in the canned beans and tomatoes, cook on low for 1-2 hours. Serve with cheese!

I love the texture of beef chunks instead of ground beef in my chili. This is super simple to throw together and I freeze the leftovers in ziploc bags in serving size portions


  1. so do you sear the meat first or just throw it in and roll with it??? Looks yummy!

    Your cats are lovely. I need a border cat. Toni has lovely markings!

  2. Just throw it in and go - keeps it simple!

    Toni is quite the character - has the household trained, is a diva half the time and quite personable the other half. I think I should do a post about her in the near future.

  3. Love the cats!!! and the CP recipe ain't bad either!!
