One Pot Supper Season

Do you ever cook up supper in one pot?  Here in San Diego, we get very few chilly days.  When we do, I love to make a pot of dinner.  It tends to be a very hearty soup that we can reheat for dinner a few days in a row.

Tonight, we settled in for our annual watching of Love Actually, our favorite Christmas movie of all times.  I made a wonderful pot of white bean soup with fat free broth, lean ground turkey, onions, celery, carrots, garlic and some other yummy spices.  It simmered all day (I started with dry white beans) and made the whole house smell wonderful.  It was delicious and wonderful and I highly recommend you try it!  I am looking forward to these leftovers.

Today, I also want to say Happy Hanukkah to everyone out there who is celebrating for the next week!  It is such a fun holiday because it goes on for 8 days and nights!!!

Desire to enjoy the cool weather.  Dedication to honor lots of celebrations.  Discipline to finish all the leftovers.


  1. Yet another answer to; "What makes the whole house smell?" Hahahahaha! Happy Healthy Hanukkah!

  2. Yum! We also watch Love Actually annually - such a great tradition. And we made a pot of chili this weekend -probably not as healthy a version as yours, but SOOO delicious. I need to up the cardio in the near future, but for right now my body needs to slow the heck down and just recover. Will do some gentle workouts until Thurs when it's back to the trainer!
