Good Thursday morning to you! We have a cold, frosty one here, but the sun is out brightly shining, so it will probably warm up some today.
As promised, I want to share some pictures of other tables at Advent By Candlelight at our church on Tuesday night.
Now - on to the guests for early supper after our chorus performance on Wednesday afternoon. As it turns out, only 14 were able to attend, but we had a good time, nonetheless. I mentioned Pumpkin Chili in the last post. My daughter, Munchomom, has featured this recipe on her blog, but I cannot remember any other source she may have mentioned.
THREE-BEAN PUMPKIN CHILI
1 Tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1/2 pound ground turkey
1 15-ounce can each of black beans, kidney beans, and white beans, drained and rinsed
1 29-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 15-ounce can fire-roasted tomatoes
1 15-ounce can pumpkin
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- In large pot, over medium heat, warm olive oil. Add garlic, onion, and peppers, and saute until onions start to turn translucent. Add meat, breaking it up with fork, and cook until no pink remains. Add remaining ingredients and heat until mixture starts to bubble. Reduce heat to low. Cook 1 to 2 hours to blend seasonings. Serves 8 to 10.
Wait!! That's not all the pumpkin that was served!! There were even pumpkin desserts!! Now, I've moved to the most interesting, haven't I? Well, I have to save something for another day's posting.:-) Perhaps that will be the next post.
If any of you from chorus are reading, let me say once again what a pleasure it is to be able to be part of this group! I'm really happy you were able to come on Wednesday afternoon.
Thank you so much for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
