Buffalo Chicken Chili? Extra Yum

I came across this recipe known as “Buffalo Chicken Chili” by the group known as Tasty on Facebook.  I’m sure you have seen many of their creations shared or liked by your friends and family on there.  It seemed simple enough and tasty enough to give it a try (especially if you are looking for something to make for an upcoming Super Bowl party).  It also included my favorite kitchen tool:  the Crockpot.  If you don’t own one or barely use yours, you are missing out!  The original recipe is listed below but I added my comments on how I modified it.

We just passed Halloween and now have bags of candy tempting us by saying it’s okay to eat 1 or 10 pieces for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner.  Without missing a beat, I’ve seen close to 20 (so far) images with workout guides and the horrors of gaining weight over the last two months of the year.  The incentive is to lose your holiday weight now and not wait (weight lol) until the New Year to declare your new super awesome fitness goals.  I think it’s a bit presumptuous of anyone to start shoving protein shakes or whatever weight loss thing down anyone’s throat or assume we are all planning to go into a food coma by sitting at the dining table shoveling mashed potatoes in our mouths in a last ditch effort to have one more bite in the name of Thanksgiving or other holiday meals.

Tasty Tuesday – Homemade Pizza

These turned out fantastic!

We love pizza here at my house and I’m sure most of you do as well.  I decided recently to start making my own pizza at home because the local place I normally order from has changed their recipe and it’s a bit gross.  The other place I used as my number 2, I don’t like the way their crust tastes usually.  It always tastes stale to me for some reason.  It really isn’t hard to make pizza.  It’s just a lot easier to dial a phone number and pay versus making it on your own.  The convenience of it is the only reason I used to order it.  Normally, I save my homemade pizza for Christmas Eve and have my son help me through the process.  It’s our fun tradition I started a few years ago because I’m sentimental like that.  I figured I would pull this out through the year because even though it may take some extra time to make, it’s well worth it in the end.
