I can not believe it is Friday already~~~YaY!

Last night I made White Chilli, I think it turned out really good:)

Here is the recipe~~~>

(This is the picture from the recipe sight)

1 lb large white beans, soaked overnight in water, drained
6 cups chicken broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium onions, chopped (divided)
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 4-ounce cans chopped green chilies
2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
4 cups diced cooked chicken
3 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
1 jalapeno or serrano pepper, chopped (optional)

1 Combine beans, chicken broth, garlic and half the onions in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until beans are very soft, 3 hours or more. Add additional water (or watered-down broth), if necessary.

2 In a skillet, sauté remaining onions in oil until tender. Add chilies and seasonings and mix thoroughly. Add to bean mixture. Add chicken and continue to simmer 1 hour. Check seasoning, add jalapeno or serrano to level of desired hotness.

3 Serve topped with grated cheese. Garnish with cilantro, chopped fresh tomato, salsa, chopped scallions, and/or guacamole. Serve with fresh warmed flour tortillas or tortilla chips.

8-10 servings

This the Chili in my crockpot, sorry about the picture being so dark. I topped it with sour cream and avocado.

Over the weekend, I always make big breakfasts for my family. This is a cheese omelet with some jalapeno peppers in it for my husband.

All plated up

Next I made French Toast

This is a lunch I made, grilled cheese, with french fries and some tomatoes and Cucumbers

...and this is a chicken stock I was making with what was left of my chicken.

Tonight's dinner will be something with ground beef, stay tuned for that:)

I already vacuumed the living room and straightened it up, then I vacuumed the hard wood, and cleaned the bird's cage.

After I post this, I am going to vacuum the stairs and put the wash in the dryer:)

It is supposed to rain today too~~OH, I hope it does.

You all have a fantastic Friday
