We had a nice weekend. We went shopping on Saturday and bought Lukas a few pairs of jeans and I even found him a Spongebob shirt. Sunday we went to church and then I went grocery shopping. On the way home, I managed to get a flat tire. I didn't feel it until I started driving into our apartment complex. I'm glad my husband took care of it. I haven't had a flat tire in a very long time so I guess I was overdue.
We have a nice little cold front right now so I made chili for dinner last night. Once again, I just threw some stuff in a pot. This time I just used a big pot on the stove rather than my crockpot because I didn't have all day. I started cooking it around 3pm and it was ready at about 6pm. It turned out pretty good. Lukas did not seem to care for it but he has been very picky lately.
Today hasn't been particularly interesting. I woke up, fed Lukas, and we got dressed. I took him outside to play for a little while. We came back in and he got into a little trouble so I put him in time-out. I was trying to talk to him about his time-out and the little booger plugged his ears with his little fingers! It was a little difficult for me to keep from laughing but at the same time I thought, "Gosh, this kid has some attitude!" He's a cutie but he sure is trouble sometimes. He definitely keeps my life interesting and busy. Lukas is taking a nap now and I'm dying my hair and writing this blog.
My Chili Recipe
1 lb ground turkey
1 bell pepper, chopped up (I used a yellow one)
1 small onion, chopped up
1 can chili ready tomatoes
1 can rotel tomatoes
2 of those tiny cans of tomato sauce
1 little can of tomato paste
1 can of pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1-2 ts garlic salt
1-2 ts chili powder
couple of ts of sugar
Brown and drain ground beef. Add all of your ingredients and cook for about 3 hours on the stove (or in the crockpot for probably about 5-6 hrs on low). I didn't have any but brown sugar would have been better than sugar.
