I promised I would tell about my chili! It was awesome! I cooked some organic kidney beans in a pressure cooker with some sea salt. I then put 1 tomato, 1 onion, some basil and oregano, banana pepper, and a hot pepper in the food processor. I added that to my beans - water and all. I also browned 1 pound of organic hamburger and added that. It was still a little on the thin side,so I added a little cornstarch. I'm going to order some arrowroot, which can be used to thicken and won't contain the carbs. It was delicious!
I am in the process of reading Trim Healthy Mama at the recommendation of a friend. It is really eye opening! I love it! I will share some of the wisdom as I read on!
I made 4 quarts of homemade vanilla yogurt this morning along with a pint of sour cream. I haven't tasted the yogurt, but it smells fantastic! My little girl had a little of the sour cream on a bean burrito we had for lunch. It wasn't really ready, but there was a little bit of firmness on the top, so she got a little of that.
Oh, and the big news is I got my Wonder Washer yesterday! We have done about 6 loads in it and it has worked great! Drying the clothes is a challenge in this rain, so I'm having to use my dryer. My goal is to try and take us off grid as much as possible. I have a pic of it on my Facebook page. Just click the link. I posted it yesterday, so it should be pretty close to the top of my page.
I am stir frying this evening for supper. No meat - just veges. I have some whole grain rice. According to Trim Healthy Mama, I should have a protein with this, but life goes on! I just took some granola out of the oven that I made to go over my vanilla yogurt for dessert! It has nuts in it, so there is a little protein!
Take care and Happy Living!!
