reality shows? I’ve got a problem. I watch way too many. This morning I made Dave watch Restaurant Impossible which basically showed a restaurant and an episode of Hoarders combined.
It’s getting bad out there.
I have learned a valuable lesson in the past week or so.
Chipotle peppers are hot.
This shouldn’t be a surprise I know but Bobby Flay always talks about them just being smoky. I’ve used them twice – once in making enchiladas and last night making chili and they really pack quite a punch.
Red wine cooled it down quite nicely. My chili recipe was pretty basic. I browned some turkey with onion and garlic, added 1 red bell pepper, 1 can black beans (rinsed and drained) a can of diced tomatoes with chili peppers, 2 chipotle peppers (diced), a cup of frozen corn, some chili powder and cumin, S&P a few tablespoons of tomato paste and a whole lotta water.
And once again a meal I made caused my boyfriend to pass out cold at like 8:30.
I’ll be back at some point tomorrow. Tonight is trivia. I need to redeem myself. We haven’t won in a while. :( I also need to just get a chicken sandwich and stop trying to eat super healthy while I am there. I always end up disappointed when I do that.
Over the weekend I’ll be making some Super Bowl food for Sunday and will post some pics and recipes. Pretty standard but also pretty yummy.
I honestly don’t care who wins the game though. I really like cheddar cheese so maybe I should root for Wisconsin.
