Productive day

Hubby and I got so much done today it feels great! When we finally took a break for lunch from chores we each made a fun little plate. Mine had carrots, broccoli (and cheese sauce) and almonds.

Followed by the last of the chocolate from Grandma's visit!

In the afternoon I made some vegetable chili since I wanted to use some of the veg from last Friday before we go away tomorrow (sorry I forgot to take a picture). I used the same recipe as last time, but with different veggies.

Here is the recipe:
1/2  lb onion chopped
  1garlic cloves
Oil
1/2 lb chopped veggies (we used green pepper, carrots, and mushrooms)
1/2 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 can kidney beans
 2 oz tomato pasta
14 oz crushed tomatoes
2 oz bulgar wheat
2 cups stock

Looks great and might be dinner later this weekend.

We had an afternoon photo shot with out visitor for the week. Seriously the first time they both sat down all week.Such fun playmates.
Then hubby made dinner. He did a Hamburger Helper with a bunch of added frozen mixes vegetables and ground turkey. It was actually nice and filling, we needed that after a busy day.

Finally I had a repeat dessert from earlier in the week. Berries (blue and black this time) with whip cream and a dark chocolate kisses over the microplane.


Great way to end the day. I hope to post from the road tomorrow but we will see what happens, we are southern bound for a wedding!!
