- My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)
Happy Friday! Plus a recipe! :-)
On another note, Saturday is the one year anniversary of the date John and I moved in together.. wahoo! :-) And he even remembered... DOUBLE WAHOO!! :-)
I made chili the other night, and I swear, it is the PERFECT "diet" food... It's extremely low fat and low carb, and has tons of protein and flavor.. Delish!
2 lbs of extra lean ground turkey
1/2 medium onion (chopped)
2 medium green or red peppers (chopped)
4 Cans of fire roasted Tomatoes
2 Cans of Dark Red Kidney Beans (all beans drained and rinsed)
1 Can of Black Beans
1 Can of Pinto Beans
Saute onions, garlic and peppers until onions are translucent. (I use Pam to saute). Add ground turkey until cooked thoroughly cooked. Add everything else and simmer for an hour or so... DELISH! Sorry, I don't measure my spices... I just prepare to taste. It lasts for several days so you have a quick go to meal! If it's not enough food for your significant other, give them some corn bread or put the chili over rice or pasta. It's delicious on it's own though!
Well, I am going to get back to work since my time is limited here today... I hope you all have a great weekend, and I will probably be blogging some more over the weekend!!
xoxo to you all! :-)
