I've recently begun meal planning a bit more to make sure I schedule in margin for cooking & intentional dinner time together when my husband gets home late from the hospital. One of my favorite things to do is just walk around a grocery store and explore the in-season produce, new products and interesting packaging up and down the aisles. Meal planning and scheduling grocery store time allows me to do just that - plus we end up with delicious meals, so win-win!
Lately on the meal plan, Soup Sundays have been our favorite! Everything from Tuscan Kale & Sausage soup, to Hot & Sour soup, to this past Sunday's Turkey Chili. When we have the Sunday off, we love to invite friends over for "Soup Sunday" and sit around the table with plenty of wine & heaping bowls of soup.
This one was particularly easy - browned the turkey, chopped up some peppers & onions, opened up a few cans of beans & diced tomatoes, and then into the crock pot for a few hours to simmer! Our dear friends Whitney & Will supplied the Jalapeño Cornbread much to Chip's delight! The following day, I had leftovers and couldn't help but shooting a bowl! I love the way the colors complement each other so well and the texture of the chili. Now time to think about our next Soup Sunday recipe!
