Chili and a Sunset….as good as it gets

A new week. 

I left my cell phone yesterday at my mom’s (I didn’t know it was there at the time)  and I think I was ready to have a breakdown.  My son was playing with it and I knew he had left it somewhere, just didn’t know where.  I’m really not a big cell user and don’t consider myself hooked on technology…..until I don’t have access to it.   I’m not the only who was having a little breakdown.  My sis in law showed up early this morning in her pj’s because she couldn’t get in touch with me.  My phone and I finally reunited and all is good.

I put in another hour and a 1/2 of yardwork today.  I’m not talking gardening or planting pretty little seeds.  No, it was heavy duty, chopping down trees and branches.  But it was not as hot today so I went for it.  I do believe I sweated off at least a zillion calories.    I found this baby in the garage and had fun  🙂









I made it back inside and made the yummiest liquid lunch! A hugh jass green smoothie with everything in it!  I was really thirsty and downed it before I could take a pic.  Trust me it was good.

Picked up my nephew from school, did some homework with the little guy and before we knew it it was almost sundown.  But we caught a glimpse of a beautiful sunset.  These are the pics Ryan took.

Ryan had some mac n cheese and I made some turkey chili.  I love chili and I make a pretty good chili at that.  This turkey chili I can enjoy even more because it’s so much lower in calories and just as tasty.

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • chopped onions
  • chopped garlic
  • tomato sauce
  • salt n pepper
  • kidney beans
  • my secret spices

Just kidding, this time I made it with ‘chili seasoning mix’.

Served it up with some brown rice and MMM- MMM GOOD!

      Hi! I’m in Pembroke Pines, a suburb west of Fort Lauderdale. This was my basic chili recipe because my son doesn’t like it when I put peppers, tomatoes and other goodies in it. I love chili! Four kinds of beans sounds good.
      Thanks for stopping by!!
