Crockpot Three Bean Turkey Chili

Standard

Hey!

So it’s Monday…already! This weekend went by super fast. It was a great weekend. My daughter came home from school to spend the weekend at home. I was shocked that this is the same girl who said “I am not coming home until Thanksgiving.” Maybe she missed us…at least a little bit.

I did some cleaning, laundry and dressed up for a Halloween party. I had a lot of fun at the party then went out for a few drinks with my husband. That was nice since it’s not often that we get to go out together alone. I will post a picture of myself in my fabulous Halloween costume  in the next few days. If you’ve already opened the Halloween candy bags and could use a healthy meal to offset the candy or if you just need a great delicious meal that pretty much cooks by itself this is it.

I really like beans so I was in heaven with this dish!

I didn’t add any topping to mine but if you do make sure you add those extra points if you are watching your weight. I chose to enjoy a huge salad along with this chili.
