i hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. mine was very relaxing, it included some (more) painting, baking, and lots of indoor activities since it rained again all weekend. since the weather was so miserable, cold and damp, i decided sunday was the perfect day to dust off the crock pot for the first time since the winter and make chili. i love soups, stews, and chili,(if you share my passion stay tuned there are plenty of recipes to share) and when the weather starts to make a turn towards fall, i happily welcome it as an excuse to begin making them all. of course, i make enough to feed a family of twenty every time. i freeze the majority, in individual portions which makes a great quick meal, lunch or nachos for snacking during football.
on sunday i opted for turkey chili (don't tell matt). since i felt adventurous,i went with a new recipe that was so good i had to share it. the great thing about chili is it is pretty foolproof, and you can through in what you have handy, and switch out ingredients as desired (within reason). enjoy!
