More Cookin'

Made vegetarian chili tonight and it turned out super yummy. Loved it. I think even a meat lover would enjoy it, as kory really liked it, and I am sure he would prefer a nice, meaty chili....I used black beans instead of pinto (there is a choice). Had to buy chili powder, bell pepper, the beans, tomato and veggie broth, but everything else I had on hand.

I have also been making Kurt smoothies at night as a kinda filler before dinner and to use up different fruit in the house. Anyway, the one i made tonight was the best thus far. Here is the recipe for that one. I have been trying a tiny bit of each of the smoothies I make for Kurt, and liked that one the best as it was thicker than the others, and the yogurt gave it kinda a tang, which was good. Here are the others I made though, here and here.

Today was super crazy at work. We had 7 hearings (at circuit court and friend of the court), a divorce mediation, a bankruptcy deposition, and like 5 appointments in the office. I also had a board committee meeting tonight. And deadlines on filing two bankruptcies today. AARGH. I did not even have time to eat anything or open the mail, and opening the mail is my fav part of the day! :). After getting home at like 810, I made the chili, did dishes, and did some laundry. I don't know how I do it sometimes, LOL. Too tired to work out, but I am going to cut myself some slack tonight.

Jeez, that sounds like an insanely busy day. Oh, and that smoothie recipe (the one with the banana & honey) looks really yummy.

My co-worker just shared what she tells me is a fabulous vegetarian chili recipe. I haven't tried it out myself yet though.

I've been wanting to try to make smoothies. Maybe this post and your links to the recipes will give me the inspiration!

ohhh, does your coworker care to share her recipe with me to? :). The smoothies all take mere seconds to make and they add fruit into your diet in a yummy way! Love.
