I Heart Chili.

After a long, rainy work day, all I wanted was some comforting chili.  I came home and whipped this up:

I never make the same chili twice.  I just use what I have.  This one has ground turkey with half my spice cabinet, including: salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, coriander, cayenne, paprika, cinnamon, and cocoa powder.  Yep just a pinch.  Sauteed some veggies (onions, celery, and jalapeno), boiled some dried ancho chilis in chicken broth, then whirled them up in a blender, added that to the pot along with a can of garbanzo beans, diced tomatoes, and 2 cans tomato sauce.  Cooked in a crock pot and served over brown rice.  I’m a happy, full girl.

But back to breakfast.  I had a bowl of oatmeal before work:

I took some pictures of the wedding set up, but forgot to shoot my yummy salad for lunch.  Oh well, here’s the wedding:

It’s 7:00 pm Sunday, I’m putting on my jammies and curling up in my bed. Bye.

Yummy Lunch, Disgusting Dinner

My eats started off normal and great this morning with my typical bowl of oatmeal with bananas and cinnamon.  Then lunch was a yummy treat prepared by my friend Jean because I forgot to pack mine and we decided on a random Stein Mart trip after work.  Look at the gloriousnous:

A hot pressed cuban on a bagel thin with cheddar Sun Chips. It was awesome! Thanks Jean!  And such a pretty plate too.

Dinner on the other hand was pretty much a disaster.  I thought I would be lazy and just throw some packed food together.

All put together:

Looks innocent enough.


Meatless beef chunks= Yuck!

How, oh how should I get my protein?  I know:

Yogurt!  I polished off the container.  Just what I needed.

Gotta get my rest, tomorrow is the first wedding of our “fall” season.  Good night!
