Today’s Menu: Three Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread

I knew I would be busy most of the day so I wanted something that wouldn’t take that long to prepare. Nothing easier than a Crock Pot Meal so I decided to make some more of the 3 Bean Turkey Chili! I browned and seasoned the Ground Turkey the night before so in the morning all I had to do was open the Beans up, start the Crock Pot and add everything to the pot. I set it on low and I was done. By 5:00 the Chili was ready, you could tell by the aroma that had filled the kitchen. I topped with a handful of Shredded Gouda Cheese. On the side I had a few Oyster Crackers and a slice of Cornbread my Mom had fixed for their dinner yesterday. For a dessert/snack later a bag of Jolly Time 100 Calories Mini Bag of Pop Corn. Life is good!

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Crescent Rolls

Back by popular demand, by my parents, for dinner the Crock Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs! I used Kroger Pork Baby Back Ribs. While I had the crock pot warming up I cut the rack of Ribs in half, to fit in the crock pot, and seasoned the Ribs with JB’s Fat Boy Premium Rub and I then brushed on a half a bottle of JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Bar B Cue Sauce. I cooked the ribs for 8 hours on low in the crock pot. After 5 hours I applied the other half of Haugwaush to the Ribs. The ribs came out tender fall off the bone delicious. No knife needed as the bones could be removed by just pulling on them. My rub and sauce are both J B’s Fat Boy products. So far Kroger and on-line are the only places I’ve seen that you can purchase J B’s products.

For sides we had Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes and a loaf of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. For dessert later a Yoplait Delight 100 Calorie Chocolate Eclair Parfait.

Today’s Menu: Three Bean Turkey Chili w/ Corn Bread Ears

It’s a cold and rainy day outside today but it’s warm and hearty here on the inside. Nothing is any easier than to fix dinner by using the crock pot. One my favorite crock pot recipes is Three Bean Turkey Chili! This is a fun recipe because you can make it as hot or as spicy as you want. Mine with all the ingredients comes out about medium hot. I could eat it a lot spicier but my parents are not fans of spicy or hot. I like my Chili hearty and thick but if you like yours a bit more thinner or with a soup you can add more water to this recipe to thin it out. I had a side of Cornbread Ears that I had baked.
