I like when I can make something that both Ryan and I like that lasts a few meals. One thing I recently found is a recipe for Turkey Chili. It's fabulous! It's got some kick to it and it takes about 15 minutes to throw it together.
Today Ryan when back to work after being off for the holidays. Since we got back from NE on Monday night, had a NYE gathering on Tuesday night and when to Ryan's parents yesterday, I haven't had time to really get some food made for his lunches. Well, after making waffles this morning, Ryan came down and asked what we had for lunch. I told him just go to the Prairie Dog today and that I would have stuff for him for lunch tomorrow. As I was looking at the recipe for meatloaf (his favorite), I realized that I could throw this chili together while he ate breakfast and he would have some lunch. So I did. Kind of. I didn't have the beans, but I had everything else for him. I cooked the turkey, mixed everything together and put it in a bowl for him for lunch.
I'm working really hard on saving this year. One way I know we can save more is to eat out less. I set that as a goal for myself and then on January 2nd I was telling my husband to go eat out for lunch. Face plant! This recipe is definitely one of my go to recipes and I will be stocking up on the ingredients for it so we can make it regularly.
I made this recipe card to share with you, my dear blogger friends. The actual recipe is pinned on my Yummy board on Pinterest, and came from AllRecipes.com . If you follow the link, it will take you to the original. The only thing that I've changed from the original is that I do not use the olive oil.
