In case you were wondering, it is in fact the worst movie i have ever seen. It's about a psychotic turkey that kills people every thanksgiving. I think. I'm not totally sure what its about, actually. Basically its a turkey that kills people and a lot of cheeky over the top one-liners ("you've been stuffed!")
We also had a chili cook-off! I was able to test out my brand new crock-pot!
I made a veggie chili for Sunday, but just made up the recipe
1 can chili beans, medium
1 can black beans
1 cup hominy
1 cup corn
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 cup spicy V8
1/2 cup cilantro
1 cup TVP crumbles
1 tsp olive oil
Chili powder and cumin to taste
I also made a honey jalepeno cornbread with whipped honey butter. I basically took the standard easy cornbread recipe and added 1 diced jalepeno, and a tablespoon of honey. DELISH!
I am a terrible cook, in that i snack the whole time i am cooking. By the time the meal is done, i am full from all the tasting and "quality-checks" Luckily i was able to set the crock pot at noon, and then go to the gym for a boring hour of cross training, do the laundry and dishes, and play with waffles all afternoon. This crock pot makes me feel like a super woman!! There are two "convenience" items in the kitchen i can't live without - my rice cooker, and my immersion blender. I use them all the time. I think the crock pot is joining the trifecta of kitchen excellence!
What kitchen tool can't you live without??
