I am happy to be a Jennie-O turkey ambassador for 2018.  They are kind enough to send me products to try out.  My only complaint?  This package of turkey breast was shipped in a big box with giant ice blocks for this one product – um, next time, you can just send me a coupon and save on all the packaging. šŸ˜€  But thank you!!

In Hannah’s amazing organizing of my pantry, um, turns out I had about 15 cans of beans of all kinds.  Do I suddenly panic when I am in the store thinking “do I have any beans at home?!”  And sadly, its still chili weather here, so Saturday morning I realized I had everything to make chili.


This may be the perfect bite!  Each 1.5 cups is 4 smart points.

For breakfast I had a waffle sammie – 2 points for the waffle, 2 points for the cheese and the rest is free.  

My inspiration from dinner was inspired by a:  Hannah discovered we had FOUR packages of chicken breast in our freezer, so Sunday I defrosted one package and marinated it; and b:  as soon as I saw Tieghan post this on her Instagram I took a picture to remind myself to go back to her Instastory and swipe up to get the recipe from her new cookbook.  But I didn’t go back in time and missed the recipe.

So I improvised.  My marinade:  olive oil, garlic, fresh dill, Greek seasoning, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper.  Instead of pickled onions I made a quick braised red cabbage – just saute red cabbage in a couple tablespoons of dill pickle juice.

My tzatziki is 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, 1 teaspoon garlic, 1 teaspoon dried onion, 1/2 cup shredded cucumber, squeezed dry.

I made the naan over the weekend – I hope you try my recipe, so good!  So I pretty much nailed her photograph šŸ˜›

I noticed Tieghan said “Wow” on my Instagram post, so we are basically best friends now. šŸ˜€

Huge shout out to my roommates!  This place behind my shed was just a bunch of overgrown brush, stacks of wood and debris from when trees were cut down.  They cleared it all out and even split some wood for the wood burning stove!  That was a lot of hard work – thanks guys!!  Jacob said he was going to get some grass seed – I don’t think there has been grass on this part of my property for 10 years!

It was 25 degrees when I woke up today.  I really wanted to stay in bed with Roman.  My sister is in the Bahamas and today the high is 89 degrees – #lucky!  Hope she’s having fun.

Happy Tuesday friends – make it a great day!
