Last night, we spent some major time on our kitchen floor.
Good news: It is ALMOST done!
Bad news: My kitchen sink leaked,(long story) and I’m worried it got under the new flooring. ugh.
Good news: Leak fixed (I think).
More good news: I made chili last night!
Now, for those of you long time readers, you know I don’t like beans. I am a huge texture person and I think beans are furry. Yes, they are nutritionally packed but I just don’t like them, however I do recommend them. Brent does eat them though. In fact, he LOVES them. He asked for chili yesterday and since I have been pretty lazy with making dinners this week since my kitchen is covered in sawdust.. I pulled out the crockpot to help out a bit.
Yesterday was a rainy day so it totally hit the spot!
- 1 lb. ground turkey ( I used lean turkey)
- 1/2 onions, chopped
- 4 tsp. of garlic minced.
- 2 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes (do not drain)
- 6 oz. can tomato sauce
- 1 Tbs. Dijon Mustard
- 1 Tbs. chili powder
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 (15 oz.) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 cup water
- 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
Cook your turkey in a skillet and combine all ingredients except for the cornstarch into the crockpot.
Set on low for 3 hours, then add cornstarch and stir well and let cook for one more hour.
Done and Done!
I served it with some easy twist parmesan rolls.
Yesterday: GPP, 6 mile run on the treadmill. oh joy.
Today: Burpalooza, and Bi’s and Tri’s
Now, I am officially not going to do one more burpee until…
I hope all that are able can come out to this. We have some great sponsors and free swag and some pretty hot shirts!
Something completely random:
I have been loving the fall weather! But something I’m going to miss..
Fresh PEACHES.. I ‘m thinking this may be my last batch of perfect peaches.
Hope your having a great week so far!
Questions of the day:
Now, that I have a lot of wood floor.. what do I use to clean it?
What seasonal fruit do you miss through the winter?
How long was your last run?
