Souper Saturday...

I am going to try and make a different soup or stew each week through what remains of winter and spring.  Since I'll probably make it on Friday or Saturday I figured a post called Souper Saturday was good. 

I look forward to enjoying a pot of warm yummy goodness over the weekend and before we get too tired of it I'll freeze individual portions to enjoy in the future for my lunches when I dine alone.

Because it was so Chilly Friday.... I decided to make Chili Friday!

I know that was bad...  but this was good...

So here's what went into the pot

  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 package ground turkey (approx 1.5 lbs)
  • 2 cans of black beans drained
  • l can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 sm. can of tomato sauce
  • minced garlic
  • 1 tblsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • fresh basil chopped
  • crushed red pepper
  • salt to taste

I wish I'd had some Cumin... but sadly no... it will need to be something I look for next time I'm poking through seasonings at Sauders.  Yes Sauders Fabrics is also a dry-goods store for the local Amish, Mennonite, and other neighbors. But it's way too chilly outside to go shopping for something for my chili...  I know that was bad too!

But the chili was good... with a heap of cheddar cheese, a hunk of cornbread and a beer!

There was only one person in this household who enjoyed the Chilly on Friday... this picture taken from the warmth of the kitchen through the window.  Silly dog laying on the flagstone when there's a cozy mat right there... she was sure enjoying the sunshine.

Chili sure looks yummy! That's a good idea for when I start making most of the meals again.
