This cannot be good – I’m watching a replay of the USC/Oregon St game from LAST YEAR!!!!
Ah….I’m going to be so addicted this year, I know it.
Is it bad that I’m excited about that? I love spending all day Saturday watching these teams play their hearts out!
I wasn’t sure if we would be running after work or not, so I went ahead and had a bigger bar snack, just in case (and because I was hungry!)
When are pretzels + chocolate NOT good?
I like this bar – especially all the chocolate chips and pretzel pieces.
Work was busy right up until 5 pm and then I booked it out of there! We got stuck in the same traffic we always do – it’s not horrible, but it usually takes us 5-15 minutes of sitting in line, just waiting to get out of the building complex.
Nick ran up to the garden as soon as we got home and brought down MORE tomatoes, so we didn’t go running tonight. We had to cook a huge batch of tomatoes before they went bad!
Nick started on the tomatoes while I started working on dinner.
I took about half of the turkey from the other night and made a Mexican-type soup with it.
Fiesta Turkey Soup
- 1 pepper, diced (we use an anaheim from the garden)
- 1 small red onion, diced
- 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 cups broth
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 1 can pinto beans
- 1 can great northern beans
- 1/2 cup black beans
- ancho chile powder
- cayenne pepper
- 1.5 cups leftover roasted turkey
- squeeze of fresh lime juice
- Saute onion, pepper, and garlic in a bit of oil until softened.
- Add in broth, tomato sauce, beans and seasonings.
- Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer and add turkey.
- Let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
- Squeeze in lime juice right before serving.
To serve this, Nick and I both put a dollop of fat free refried beans on the bottom of our bowls, topped with the soup, and topped that with fresh guacamole + cilantro.
I loved having the creamy refried beans at the bottom of the bowl! Such a fun surprise in every bite.
I also had a few chips to test out my guacamole while I was making it :)
I’ve got to prep some stuff for breakfast and pack my lunch for tomorrow – let’s hope I can think of something good.
What’s your commute like to work / school? Short, long, lots of traffic?
