If you had to pick your top 10 favorite foods, what would be on your list?
Mal and I have been wracking our brains all night trying to narrow-down our lists, but we just have too many favorite foods! I’m so glad that I married a man who likes to eat as much as I do!
Our top 10 conversation started after I introduced my husband to my favorite type of apple: JAZZ! I ate one as a snack this afternoon. Mal did too and he totally loved it! He’s a jazz apple convert now!
Here’s what we finally came up with for our top 10 lists:
Tina’s Top 10 Favorite Foods
- Peanut butter
Mal’s Top 10 Favorite Foods
- Ice cream
- Pug meat
Tonight, Mal and I made Real Simple’s Turkey and Bean Chili for dinner– and it was AWESOME! I always rave about Real Simple’s recipes, but this one was especially delicious and it made a TON of leftovers. We’re going to be eating them for DAYS. I’m not complaining!
I also love that homemade chili is a fairly cheap dinner. The whole meal cost us around $6! Love that!
The star ingredient of the meal was Wild n Mild Grilling & Marinade Sauce that the folks at OpenSky sent me to test out.
We used the “Wild Blend” in tonight’s chili and it packed a serious punch! As the Wild n Mild slogan says: “Flavor that Bites Back!” Oh, yes, it did!
The flavor of the “Wild Blend” was unique, but it a good way! It’s semi-sweet and bbq-esque with a serious zing to it. (I assume that the “Mild Blend” doesn’t have as much heat to it.)
I added about 1/3 of a cup of the “Wild Blend” to the chili, and it added strong, spicy kick to the pot! Perfect!
I loved this chili recipe. It was soooooo flavorful with tons of big chunks of tomato, green bell pepper, and ground turkey. A bowl of spicy, hearty chili is truly the best!
I’m psyched that we have so many leftovers!
For dessert, I ate 3 handfuls of peanut butter and chocolate chips. I’m addicted to these things!
I *think* we may have found renters for our apartment! Yay! Now, Mal, Murphy, and I need to find somewhere to live!
Off to scour Craigslist!
