"Ez as 1-2-3-Alarm Turkey Chili" & "Fancy-Schmancy Oatmeal"

FYI:  We are in a very festive mood-- HELLO FALL!!

So, picture a cartoon character with smoke coming out of its' ears.  Got the image?  Ok- that was us last night eating this chili...and at lunch today.  This recipe should come with a warning sign -- Beware: Super Spiciness Ahead!"

On a better note, it was pretty darn good.  We had to add some FF sour cream and cheddar cheese to the mix to tone down the heat, but the burn felt good.  It cooked in the crock pot for about three hours and made our house smell delightful!  It was full of flavor-- beans, vegetables, turkey, spice!  No one would ever know it was only 176 calories a serving (not including our additions).  Watch out for the adobo sauce; it will get you.

New Crock Pot :)

Perfect Fall Meal

This morning, we got up a little bit early to make a real breakfast.  We made some "Fancy-Schmancy Oatmeal!'  We made some oatmeal (not instant!) and added some fall flavors to the mix-- pumpkin (duh), honey, cinnamon, stevia, and a dash of salt.  It sounds complicated, but it was so easy and we will be making this again very soon..probably tomorrow.  It was so filling and healthy!  There's no better way to start out the day than with a good breakfast and in a fall mood.

What a perfect fall color!
