How was your hump day? Mine was pretty delicious. After a long day at work full of two classes and 3 hours of training students, I was hungry hungry hungry when I got home. Luckily, like I told you guys yesterday, I had thrown dinner in the crockpot before I left for work. When I came home, I was welcomed by the aroma of delicious chicken taco chili.
I was scrolling through Pinterest while sitting next to E on the couch the other day, when he looked over my shoulder and shouted, "ooohh I want that." Well, E gets what E wants! :) He has a good eye because the recipe turned out delicious. The directions were under the picture on Pinterest, but when I clicked on it to follow the link it lead me to an error page. I wish I could give credit to it's creator for this yummy recipe, but I don't know who it belongs to originally. Whoever you are, I am extremely grateful for your talents!
- 1 can black beans (drained and rinsed with water)
- 1 can kidney beans (drained and rinsed with water)
- 1 can of yellow corn (drained and rinsed with water)
- 8oz diced tomatoes
- 28 oz crushed tomatoes
- 1 packet mild taco seasoning
- 1 tbsp Mexican chili powder
- 3 boneless chicken breasts
After dinner, my sweet tooth was yelling at me. I tried to ignore it, but sometimes that just doesn't work. E suggested ice cream. Considering all we had in the fridge was E's Sugar Cookie Blue Bell ice cream, I knew I would need to do a little homemade magic. Enter vanilla banana soft serve!
- 1 frozen banana cut into 1 inch pieces
- 1/3 cup light soy milk
- 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 stevia packet
- 1/8 tsp xantham gum
- handful of ice cubes
I love this stuff. It takes about 5 minutes to whip up, and tastes like extremely creamy ice cream. Plus, no added sugar!! After I was finished making my soft serve, E and I sat down to watch the Aggie basketball team take on Arkansas. Please notice the difference between our dessert choices.
This pretty much sums up our eating habits in a nut shell. He has a HUMUNGO bowl of fatty, sugary, unhealthy ice cream while I eat a healthy, no sugar added, all natural banana soft serve. Do you know who probably gained weight from our little dessert escapade?? Yep, me!! The boy is a human garbage disposal and never suffers the consequences. Oh to be tall and skinny. Hahaha :) Good thing I love him.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!
