Recipe Re-blog #47

Two new recipes this week and neither were made on Thanksgiving. You didn't really think I'd skip my new recipe during the World Series of Eating, did you? Silly rabbit. Surprise! Two more crockpot recipes. I only have a 4 quart crockpot but it's been a workhorse for me. Rarely do I find a recipe that won't fit in its petite size.
Crockpot Turkey Pumpkin White Bean Chili: When I asked John if it was okay to make a turkey and pumpkin chili just days before Thanksgiving, he scoffed. That man LOVES pumpkin. The flavors in this recipe caught my eye. It's crock-ability had me hooked. And as if that wasn't enough, it has under 200 calories per serving. Hot dog! I really enjoyed this recipe but next time I might add even more pumpkin and double the chili powder. Other than that, parfait!
Crockpot Mulled Wine: Mmmm, warm wine. I have discovered my cold weather alternative to sangria. This recipe will elevate your single digit price tag wine to new levels. You can easily cut this batch in half like I did as the full recipe calls for two bottles. One half to test on Friday night, one half to serve to friends on Saturday night. I didn't think making a whole batch for just John and me was a wise choice. This spicy sipper was just what we needed up a chilly evening. A mug of mulled wine, a new episode of Grimm on TV and we're all set. Give this one a try!
