Chili and Cookies

by Nicci on 11/22/2009

Just three more days of work until I’m off for Thanksgiving!! I enjoyed most of the weekend, though it was draining at times.  I managed to squeeze in cardio and yoga today.  Thanksgiving parties and dessert buffets took over the weekend, but I did not overeat.  Portion control took over but my belly stayed full.

  1. Friday-Delivering Board Packets around town all morning, Office party at Dave n Buster’s, New Moon!!
  2. Saturday- Funeral :( close family friend, Thanksgiving Pot Luck at friends.
  3. Sunday- church, cleaning, gym, baking, errands…

Lunch and Dinner consisted of ”Turkey Taco Chili”  prepared for the bf and myself.

Yes, I went crazy with the portion of chips and I enjoyed every bite!


  1. 1/2 onion
  2. 1/2 bell pepper
  3. 1 cup corn
  4. 2 cup kidney beans
  5. 1 cup black beans
  6. 1 lb ground turkey
  7. 1 pack taco seasoning, Tsp paprika, oregano, basil and chili mix

Prepare meat on stove, add meat and other ingredients to crock pot.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Holy YUM!! Chris enjoyed the cookies; I ate two of these babies with Almond  Milk.

I’m spending the rest of my night catching up on Reader (300+) and folding laundry. Friends Mike and Austin are coming over to watch this comedy movie about boys.

Good Night,


How was your weekend, were you able to squeaze in a workout?
