Fiesta bowl!!

Maybe I'm just getting excited about Puppy bowl on Sunday or maybe i'm just feeling festive. Either way, got a great meal that is great to make for dinner and have the next day for lunch.

-ground turkey
-1 bag of frozen chopped peppers and onions
-1 can of chipotle peppers in sauce

-Cayenne pepper
-salt and pepper
-lime juice

What to do:
- Brown the ground turkey in a pan
- At the same time, start to boil some water. When it hits a boil, drop the bag of frozen veggies
-After the meat has browned, add in your seasonings. I eyeball this part, but if that scares you or if you don't want to think, just use a packet of taco seasoning.
-Combine the veggies with the meat and throw in a can of pinto beans now too.
-Top it off with those chipotle peppers, chopped and with the sauce (I only used 1/2 a can)
-drop some salsa on top and enjoy!

Well what do you know? A few months after AWA and I'm not making as many bentos. I still believe the lunches I serve are pretty and delicious - they just don't have animals made of cheese anymore.

I'm not giving up though! I will continue to blog about meals I make and take the meaning of my title to mean any meal that is pretty looking, delicious tasting, and easy for making!

Recently, I started the 4 hour body diet and dragged my husband along for the ride. I have not found many recipes for this diet online, so I though I would share mine in this blog.

4 Hour Body Diet Recipes

Italian Style

-- Chicken
-- Cannelloni Beans - 1/2 a can
-- Artichoke hearts quarters - 1/2 a can
-- bruschetta (find a chunky version!) - no more than 1/4 cup
-- 1 garlic clove, minced or garlic powder

chopped up the chicken and mix it with everything else! Just that easy! For two people, double everything.
