Carie's Potato Chili

1 lb of ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 package Au Gratin or scalloped potato mix
1 - 15 oz can of kidney beans
1 - 4 oz sliced mushrooms
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 cup of hot water

Brown your beef — drain but keep the drippings. Add meat to slow cooker. In drippings cook the onions and peppers until soft, drain and add to meat in cooker Add remainder of ingredients into slow cooker (Don't drain the mushrooms and beans) and set on low for 4 hours. (Chris and I did this with the cooker on high for 2 hours, and it turned out fine) We add sour cream when ready to serve - but you don't have to - we just like it that way.

1/4 cup sugar

Aunt Verda's Chicken and Noodles

4 eggs
(Note: Aunt Verda never said how much salt or flour. My guess would be a teaspoon of salt and two cups of flour.)

Cover and let sit for 24 hours or until dry. They must be dry to use. Separate the noodles with your fingers. Add noodles slowly to chicken broth, then add chicken.
