First batch of Chili

Currently in the slow cooker and I can’t wait for this to be done! It’s going to be so good. Add a little shredded cheese to it and my mouth is already watering.

This is going to be good!

This is going to be good!



  • 2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 large onion chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes,  undrained
  • 1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (15 to 16 oz) kidney or pinto beans, rinsed and drained

I added some corn and chopped up peppers for some extra and some colour.


Delicious Simple Dinner

On another blog that I follow Chocolate Covered Race Medals, a simple recipe was shared and look delicious. I thought I would give it a try but modified the ingredients.  I used the following:

  • olive bread
  • spicy hungarian-style salami
  • jalapeno havarti cheese
  • sliced mushrooms
  • cilantro
  • sliced cherry tomato’s


The house smells great and they taste great!! Definitely need to make these more often!

Now onto Boot Camp for our cross-training day and then a 4 mile run tomorrow as we taper down for the half-marathon in 1.5 weeks.
