French Bread Pizza

1 Loaf of French Bread (from the stores bakery)
1 jar of pizza sauce
1 package of Pepperoni
1 package of Canadian Bacon
1 can of sliced olives
1 can of piece mushrooms
1 small green pepper (chopped up)
1 small onion (chopped up)
large bag of Mozzarella Cheese
preheat the oven to 300 degrees. sliced the french bread into 2 pieces (the long way). Try to cut so the 2 slices of french bread lay flat. Spread the pizza sauce onto the slices of bread. Put the olives, mushrooms, peppers and onions onto the bread, put the pepperoni and Canadian bacon onto. Top the french bread with mozzarella cheese. Check the pizza after 15 minutes, the cheese should be golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting it. A bread knife works the best to cut.
David and I absolutely love this meal! It is a fast easy meal that you can make.

1 can mild chili beans
1 can butter beans
1 can dark kidney beans
1 can light kidney beans
1 can of Busch's bake beans
1 lb hamburger
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
Brown the hamburger. Drain all of the beans expect chili, beans and the baked beans. FYI it has to be Busch's baked beans. Empty cans into the crock pot, place grounded cooked hamburger into the crock pot. Place can of crushed tomatoes into crock pot. Cook on low for 5-8 hours. You could speed up the cooking, but it is better when it sits for a while. Serve with sour cream and cheese.
This is my favorite chili. David even said it was better then his moms, which is a BIG surprise. It is not to spicy but not to dull. Really you could put any kind of beans you want into the soup. ENJOY
