KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to a brand new Friday Finds! I hope you enjoyed this month's Fall beauty edit that I shared earlier this week, and I look forward to sharing more seasonal beauty picks as well as more Fall fashion and holiday decor. This week's picks include a wide variety; from the cutest Halloween dog toy and Halloween mugs and as always some wonderful beauty picks for the perfect relaxing weekend. I don't know how the weather is where you're at, but for us, the air is chilly and we have been having so many grey rainy days. It's the perfect weather for staying in and shopping online. Enjoy!


First, let's look at that adorable Halloween dog toy. At Sweet Beest, where they design pet toys for the modern home, you'll find a nice selection of rope tug toys and fun squeaky toys. Inspired by a love of their pets, home decor, and textiles; the products at Sweet Beest are designed with modern patterns, high-quality fabrics, and natural materials that are better for your p…

Crock Pot Shredded Beef Burritos

by Michaela from An Affair From the Heart

Everyone who loves their crock pot, raise your hand!

The crock pot makes life so easy on those busy "run-run" kind of days.

This recipe is one of our very favorites.

crock pot shredded beef burritos

I lived in San Diego for a short while years ago.  There's not much to dislike about San Diego!! But one of the things I loved the most?

THE FOOD.

I fell in love with the little taco stands.  To this day when we visit, it's our very first stop, Roberto's in Mission Beach. It doesn't matter what time of the day our flight lands, we stop there first.

Thank goodness they are open 24 hours a day!

My favorite thing has always been the shredded beef burritos. They just have so much flavor.

I attempted to make them, using my crock pot, and they are a pretty close match.

yum. added a little fresh salsa bowl, and chips, perfect.



Crock Pot Shredded Beef Burritos

3-4 pound beef rump roast
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 can diced green chilies (or use fresh if you have them)
1 large onion sliced
2 T. beef bouillon
flour tortillas for burritos
toppings of choice

Do not drain the Rotel or the chilies.
Dump everything into your crock pot.
 I cook it on high for about 5-6 hours. Basically you want it to get to the "shredded falling apart stage."   Shred meat and put back in the crock pot until ready to eat.

I steam my tortillas so that they are easier to wrap. Place meat inside and wrap burrito style. 
 I prefer mine without other things, but my family chooses between any and all of these:
shredded lettuce, cheese, sour cream, guacamole.

The burritos pictured here were lucky enough to have also have fresh peppers from my uncle's garden!!
Here in Nebraska, we aren't that lucky year 'round.


how gorgeous are these little babies?



So, the only thing that's really missing from this burrito is the atmosphere if Mission Beach...especially the ocean!


Ah.... Roberto's at  Mission Beach... see you soon...but until then I will feed my cravings with these!


Roberto's, Mission Beach, San Diego
