The phrase “TGIF” has never been more true than it is today. The first full week back after a long vacation is the worst. Re-entry into the real world, with it’s alarm clocks, and emails, and buses, and soggy sandwich lunches is just no 80 degrees and mai tais on the beach.
Its been got me so backwards, that I even forgot that Tuesday was Huck’s 7th birthday! I’m officially the worst dog mom ever. Who forgets their furbabies birthday?! I am calling a mulligan on this week. Just give me a blankie nest so I can crawl right in until next Monday rolls around.
This 20 Minute Sweet Potato Chili gave me a week of reprieve from my typical soggy turkey sandwiches. I came home and was browsing blogs and came upon this Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili from Saucy Pear and I realized I had everything in my kitchen! At that point, I was desperate and this chili look incredible.
Ben and I hadn’t gone had done a grocery run post-vacation yet, but I had everything in the cupboards, so I went to work. It was a life saver! Instead of making it in the slow cooker, my tummy was grumbly so I went the saucepan route to speed things up and it was a breeze. Instead of black beans, I used pinto beans, and added cumin to the mix.
And because I was feeling like a rebel, I even topped it with some Easy Hawaiian Kalua Pig. The heavens parted and angels sang, friends. If you’re looking for a nice, healthy, gluten free change to your meal plan – add this to it immediately!
