A Domestic Recipe – Hearty Turkey Chili

Lately, I have been all about making meals that are quick to create and can last for a couple of meals as cooking every night is not always an option. On top of that, I have been exploring recipes that focus on the leaner proteins, such as chicken and turkey. Over the weekend, it got cold out and all of a sudden, I got the craving for some sort of comfort food that is warm and filling. Instantly, I thought of a meal that would be perfect for this craving – CHILI!

After searching around online, I found an amazing recipe for Hearty Turkey Chili on Appehtite.ca. I headed directly to the grocery store, stocked up on ingredients, and after 10 minutes of prep time and simple stove top cooking for 45 minutes, it was done and reading to serve. Delicious!

Here’s to a new month… and a new chapter

After taking two months away from The Domestic Peach, I am back in action with new posts and new insights to share with you all! The last two months have brought on a lot of change for me. I am sorry that I left my readers (and others in my life) at the waist side, but I needed some time to get some things in order and swim, not sink. I have been busy settling into my new apartment in the midtown area of Toronto with my man, I started a new job (a dream job, I may add) at the end of September and focusing on learning and leading as much as possible in my role – a position I am so thrilled to have earned and am so grateful to have, putting the finishing touches on my wedding (which is just under three weeks away), and welcoming the fall season with open arms. I am starting to feel less anxious, more calm, and looking forward to the future. As much as it may be dark when I wake every morning for work, I see the lights!
