Easy Crock pot Chili

Today I made some very easy crock pot chili.
 Only 6 ingredients plus 2/3 cup water. 
1 can Tomato soup
1 can Diced Tomatoes
1 can Black Beans
1 can Corn
1/4 cup onion
1 Tablespoon Chili seasoning

Add all ingredients together in a slow cooker and heat for 2-3 hours on medium heat. 
It is a very simple, inexpensive, and good tasting recipe that serves 4.  It would go great with some cornbread.

Easy Shrimp Lo-Mein

Hello everyone,

I have decided to find new and inexpensive recipes to make in this new year.  Today I made Easy Shrimp Lo-Mein.  It was good , easy to make, and relatively inexpensive depending on the amount and size of shrimp that you buy.  It serves 2-3 people and only takes about 15 minutes to make.

1 bag frozen stir fry vegetables
1 pound (or less) cooked shrimp
1/4 cup of water
1 3 oz package of shrimp flavored ramen noodles
3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1. Combine frozen vegetable, shrimp, and water in large skillet and heat over medium high heat till cooked through and hot.  About 7 minutes.
2. Bring 2 cups of water to boil in a small pot.  Add ramen noodles and cook for 3 minutes.  Drain and add to skillet mixture. 
3. Stir ramen noodle seasoning packet, soy sauce, garlic powder, and ground ginger in to the mixture. Stir to mix and cook about 1 minute, making sure everything is hot.
