Super EASY Slow Cooker Chili and the BEST Baked Beans


Here are some great recipes for your 
Fall Sports Theme Party!!


Yum

slow cooker chili
One thing I quickly learned as we started having pot lucks for our afternoon Euchre group is that some ladies LOVE to cook and try new recipes and some DO NOT want anything to do with cooking!?! LoL These are all great recipes if you are in the latter category! 

When my children were young, I did more slow cooker recipes. One of their favorites to eat and mine to cook (since it is SOOO easy) was chili.  We loved it with warm corn bread right out of the oven! All that is needed for this recipe is browning a couple items and opening a few cans ... it has been a bit embarrassing when I made it for others and they raved about it and then asked for the recipe!?! A friend brought the baked beans below to a Euchre card party and they were SO deeeelish, I just had to share the recipe with you. They are great for a large group!

September Euchre Party Theme

Euchre party
With the fall comes the thought of sports ... and LOTS of them ... football, hockey, soccer & basketball just to name a few!! What better theme than a sports theme for a Euchre card party!!

Thinking of kind of an indoor "tailgate" party, everyone can come decked out with their favorite team's attire.  You can serve hot dogs, hamburgers, brats or chili.  A good side dish would be baked beans. Of course there are lots of FUN decorations and plates & napkins to add to the festivities.

Bid Euchre - Pepper

Bid Euchre
Recently I played a card game called Pepper, which was a lot of FUN!! ... so I wanted to share it with you
Bid Euchre is similar to Euchre but adds the excitement of bidding for tricks. Pepper is a form of Bid Euchre. There are many versions of Bid Euchre and Pepper. I will describe the rules we used to play one of these versions. It is good if you have six players and can't play regular Euchre. Also if you have 8 players, it's easier to socialize when you are all playing together rather than switching tables as in regular Euchre. If you like playing Euchre, I think you will like Pepper! 

How to Play

Pepper can be played with four, six or eight players in teams of two, three or four players respectively. Team members are seated alternately so that each person is seated beside an opponent.  The cards used includes the four suits (Spades, Diamonds, Clubs, and Hearts) of each face (Jack, Queen, King, Ace). You need one set of these cards for each pair playing. ie. if 4 people are playing you need 2 sets, if 6 people are playing you need 3 sets and if 8 people are playing you need 4 sets. You may want to use Pinochle card decks. Since we use multiple decks, there are duplicates of each card. All cards are dealt out. Cards are dealt one at a time and each player receives 8 cards. Dealing is clockwise starting with the player to the left of the dealer and ending with the dealer.

9/10 Euchre ... Tuesday Tip

I thought it would be FUN to have Tuesday Tips to share some interesting Euchre tips ... of course on Tuesdays!


Do Not Pass a Biddable Hand - 


Euchre TournamentIf you have three trump or two strong trump and a side-suit Ace, make the call! This is especially true if you are the dealer and three passes have come around to you. There is an exception. You can pass a biddable hand in first seat (to the left of the dealer) if you can call another suit once the upcard is turned down.




Here is a video on when you might want to pass a biddable hand in Euchre
