Poblano-Turkey Sausage Chili

Poblano-Turkey Sausage Chili

I’m happy to report that after yesterday’s hot-oil-laced-with-cayenne-pepper-spattering-into-eyeball incident, my eyeballs feels just fine! I am also feeling better today, but not perfect. I had a great workout after dinner tonight, which also helped, at least mentally. My head feels clearer.

Since then, I’ve seen lots of different cornbread stuffing and dressing renditions around the blogosphere. … Continue reading

Blissfully Unaware at Culver’s

NOM. That is what I have to say about that. THAT, up there, is a Culver’s Deluxe Butterburger. In the mood for something low key before going to see Skyfall on Friday night (which was QUITE AWESOME, beeteedubs – we just bought all 22 James Bond movies on Blu-Ray, and have been moderately obsessed lately), … Continue reading
