Cam's Churry

Have you ever come home from a day of work and your husband has cooked you a meal?


This is what happened to me on Tuesday night.  Arrived home to find vegetable and chicken delight awaiting, all mixed together into a sea of chili, tomato, black bean, chipotle flavor...


Attempting to please the entire family my hubby included shrimp for Alex, black olives for Molly, and loads of vegetables for me...

Honey Butter

3 ingredients... butter, honey, powdered sugar... How can you go wrong??? You simply can't. 


 

Add the honey butter with the light cornbread straight out of the oven

Light Cornbread Muffins with Honey Butter


Mmmmm, can you say honey butter.  



Yes, the cornbread muffins are "light" and absolutely must be eaten any time there is chili in the house, but forget about that...  




gimme more of that honey butter
 (oh, and can I please announce to the world that my 8 year old son, Alex, took the above picture... I know, amazing!).  


Clearly, my daughter was reaching for more of those muffins, too, but little does she know the secret is in the honey butter.

Black Bean and Olive Balls with a Dash of Basil

I have a balls story.


Not the delicious, black bean and olive ball sort of story that you may expect from a food blog, but more the sort of balls-that-boys-have story. And just so we're not too distracted with olive ball pictues while I'm recanting boy balls stories, here are some black bean and olive patties, too, that are equally delicious as their ball counterparts.



Angie's Balls Story
On occasion, I work in acute care as a physical therapist.  This past weekend, one of my patients, who was quite sick, managed to get out of bed, walk to the door, and sit back in the bedside chair.  Yay for him... so many health benefits.  At the end of our treatment session, however, he calmly says to me "Can you grab my testicles?"


Excuse me?

Creamy Ethiopian Lentils

138.4

That's my starting weight.  I just signed up to loose 10% of my weight in 2 weeks... JOKING... 10% of my weight in 6 months time... that is 14 pounds by July 1st, by my calculations.  That's gonna be hard... this is what my daughter thinks about that...


(Don't you love that photo... she knows how to celebrate and enjoy life!  And no, I'm not biased) But losing that weight is not as hard as these mothers are suffering due to their teenage sons. My friend made this ad.  Hilarious.


Back to 138.4.  If I eat more of this delicious dish, I should be on track to meeting my target weight loss goal.

Game Day Chili

January 1st is just around the corner, and that means football!

And what goes better with football than a hearty, beef chili??  Hello!



And probably the best part of the football for me, are the funny commercials... like this one...

Coconut-Pecan-Crumble Sweet Potato Casserole



"I knew it was time to find a level of acceptance for the strangest of American Thanksgiving traditions, sweet potato casseroles with toasted marshmallows. I could never get my head around this dish — so sweet! so weird on a plate with turkey and gravy!" Deb - from Smitten Kitchen
