I got back into the kitchen this past weekend. Amazing, I know. I made a big ol’ pot of Chili on Sunday because Winter appeared a few weeks (months) early and we needed to warm our bellies. I made Cooking Light’s Spicy Turkey Chili and it is truly that, Spicy. But so good. And loaded with vegetables, including zucchini, carrots, green peppers and tomatoes. So it’s healthy. And delicious.

It had to simmer for an hour, so rather than wandering around the house and forgetting about it, I set up my All-Clad Pan and Steamer and started making food the Daughter. Yep, vegetable puree’s. Anything to get me into the kitchen, right?

I started with a bag of Organic Carrots. Then I got motivated, and while the water was boiling, I cut up the Parsnips I bought to make for her. Then the Beets. When one was done steaming I poured it into the food processor and by the time it was pureed and spooned into an ice cube tray the next vegetable was ready to puree. And finally, by the time the Chili was ready to eat, I had three ice cube trays of vegetable puree to put in the freezer for Daughter. Our football team was well ahead of the other team, the corn muffins were out of the oven and it was time to eat.
