Bday Mom and Turkey?

Yesterday was my Mother’s birthday and for some odd reason she wanted Wienerschnitzel for dinner. Don’t ask, I can’t explain it either. I accepted on one condition, she had to hike with me all ~4.5 miles of Rancho San Antonio. So, yesterday the whole CA family went up the hills for a two hour hike. It’s ok, I did my full run the day before. I think it was a success; no one died. Next step, the 13 mile long walk!

I have no idea what possessed me, but after dinner I went home to cook a meal for the rest of the week. On Sundays, I like to cook a meal that normally takes a while to simmer in itself, normally my pasta sauce or whatever. Yesterday, I made a turkey chili. That’s right, turkey. Those that know me know I rarely deviate from my ground beef for things like chili, but trying to stay healthy, I thought why not. Overall, it’s a success. I can hardly tell it’s not ground beef because of all the spices I used. Sure I CAN tell, but it’s still a nice change. I’ll have to make the same recipe again with ground beef to see if I can tell for sure haha.

Oh… don’t worry, I didn’t eat another dinner of chili after the Wienerschnitzel. That would be crazy talk!
