Love some of the new things I’ve had in the last week!
Baked tofu which was marinated with onion flakes, orange marmalade, red chile flakes, and garlic. Stir fried with tons of veggies and a palm-full of slivered almonds. It was SO good and very easy. I estimated it was about 5P+.

15 1/2 oz canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
15 oz fat-free canned refried beans
Spray a 12-inch sauté pan with cooking spray; set over medium-high heat. Brown turkey and break up the meat with a wooden spoon as it cooks, about 10 minutes; drain and set aside.
Spray a large pot with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring occasionally, until soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.
Add garlic; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add carrots, celery and peppers; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add chili powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, salt and cayenne; stir for 1 minute.
Stir in broth, tomatoes, both types of beans and turkey; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring every 5 minutes, about 35 minutes total. Yields about 1 1/2 cups chili per serving. 8 servings at 5P+
Not-so-homemade or new
And last night’s dinner, which I didn’t make and wasn’t new, but I loved it just the same. I had a birthday coupon to Zoes Kitchen, so I picked up dinner for us. Greek chicken marinara for Dan and grilled chicken dinner for myself. LOVE their food, we only have 1 in town and it’s not close, so I went the long way home to go get it. This was Dan’s first time trying it and he liked his. Added a pita and some extra veggies to mine (comes with greek chicken (4P+), rosemary white beans (3P+), and roasted veggies-1P+).
