Mmmm, everyone's food sounds lovely...even the ice-cream dinner. :D

Made turkey chili yesterday so it's leftovers today- always better the second day.....making some cheese/garlic biscuits to go with. Boring, but it's been cool and when it starts getting cool, I make chili.

My flip-flops have been set aside and my feet imprisoned within socks and shoes...ugh. Hate.

Laura, when it gets chili, so does your family?? :worry: :lol:
Turkey chili? Sounds strangely healthy. I've made chili once in my life, and eaten it about four times. I don't know why though, it's a lovely food.

I made linguine with sole. Super easy and quick, you just cook the pasta and meanwhile quickly saute the sole in butter with some rosemary, then toss with the pasta and it flakes apart.

Tomorrow night will be tacos! (oh so very Canadian tacos that I would be ashamed to serve to anyone south of this border though!)

I'm still in my flip-flops (or slippers as they're called here), at least around the house. I wear normal shoes outside. ;)

Last night's dinner was funky stuffed chicken breasts and broccoli. The chicken breasts were stuffed with a thin slice of ham, some roasted red bell pepper, sliced olives, and pieces of a hard-boiled egg. Strange, but tasty.

Tonight we had steak fajitas and margaritas from our favourite Mexican place. I'm painfully stuffed but so happy.

Cooking is fun and once you get a few basics down, it's really not that hard. Give it a try!

Last night we had chili, since we knew we'd be eating late and I wanted something I could make ahead and just heat up when we were ready. Best of all, I have the leftovers for lunch today!

I'll probably make this chicken dish tonight. I've been meaning to for a while, and what with the blogger and his wife (who are friends of mine) raving about this dish again recently, I'm determined to make it now.

The chicken dish I made last night was fantastic! Sort of like sesame chicken from Chinese restaurants. In fact, I might try making it again with chicken pieces to speed the whole process up. I served it with rice cooked in vegetable broth, mixed with some sautéed red bell pepper, onion and peas.

I used my crockpot for the first time yesterday. I made chicken with black beans and corn. Last night I had it in tacos, and today I made nachos with it. Delicious!
I've owned this crockpot for 3 years... I don't know what took me so long to use it, but I love it! Just throw everything in there and let it cook. I see many more crockpot meals in my future. :D
