Homemade Turkey Burgers!
This is such a simple go to meal in our household. It takes 20 minutes including cooking time and although eating it with chips doesn’t make it the healthiest dinner, someone could easily change the chips to a side to steam broccoli for a healthier night. I just love making these burgers because we always change up what we use to accommodate what ingredients we have on hand.
Slow Cooker Chili!
Thursday, August 27th, was my amazing fiancé’s birthday and one of his birthday gifts was a Crock Pot. We’ve been talking about getting one for ages and we finally got one. I also got him The Hobbit on DVD and a few other things but the slow cooker was definitely a highlight that will help us around the house.
My first recipe I tried out on this bad boy was chili. I love chili but I have never had it out of a slow cooker! Where has this been all my life? I’ve also never actually used a slow cooker personally so I figured this recipe would be safe for me to try out.
Very few and simple ingredients: minced garlic, garlic salt, pepper, chili powder, 2 cans of tomato sauce, and chili beans and 1 lb of browned ground beef. Once I get more comfortable I may get some uncooked kidney beans or pinto beans instead of the canned kind but I’m still learning how to use the slow cooker.
Chicken Fried Rice!
I was craving some fried rice this week but did not feel like spending $50+ on a hibachi dinner for the whole family so instead I went to Publix and bought the ingredients to make my own fried rice.
The rice is supposed to be a day old so Friday night I cooked 3 cups of rice. Clearly I missed the part of the recipe that called for 3 1/2 cups of cooked rice so I have a lot of leftover rice. I should’ve used 2 cups of uncooked rice, maybe even less.
Saturday I gathered my ingredients and got to making my fried rice.
