It's cold here. Like 40s/50s. That's really cold considering Saturday it was 80 and I was wearing shorts! I kinda like it. I like wearing my flannel pjs and eating a good, hearty soup for dinner!
Tonight I made taco soup. It is so good and easy. You can make on the stove or in the crockpot, you can use turkey, beef, chicken or just beans - all are delicious!
Tonight my recipe looked like this:
1lb 99% lean ground turkey
1 chopped onion
2 cloves chopped garlic
Packet of low sodium taco seasoning
Packet of ranch season
1 can kidney beans - drain and rinse all beans
1 can black beans
1 can white beans
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 can mexi corn
chicken broth - i used a can, but use as much or as little as you'd like!
*saute onions and garlic, then cook meat.  add seasonings and beans.  let simmer for a while. or not.
Tonight I made it in a big pot on the stove. When I worked, I would throw 2 frozen chicken breast in the crockpot along with the other ingredients and dinner would be ready when I got home! Freezes well too!

Top with shredded cheese and sour cream (I use light). Avocado would also be yummy!

These two had a good day (besides waking at 6 again)
Their teachers bragged about how sweet they are - especially to each other :) makes me proud!

  1. OMG is Claire wearing pearls? Love it.

  2. Might have to try that, sans the beans as my hubs doesn't like them. And I hear you on the brrr-ish weather. We just got back from Orlando where it was mid-80's, then get off the plane in Ohio and freeze our bums!
