Everybody has them. Those days where everything you tried to do refused to work right, none of your plans worked out even close to what you had intended. Your sinuses are acting up, you’re cramping and even your hair hurts. You’d go out to eat if you could stand the idea of dealing with other people in public, but all you want to do is curl up on the couch and not do a lick of anything useful. Donna Reed would disapprove (the dishes alone would make her cry!)

This supper is for days like that.

The Most Basic Chile Ever

1 package of ground turkey meat, about 2.5 lbs.
1 onion
1 large can tomato sauce
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
2 cans dark kidney beans
2 cans light kidney beans
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Cumin
Chile Powder
Sea Salt
Pepper

Brown the ground turkey. To be honest, was feeling so lazy I didn’t even thaw the meat first. If you put it in the pot frozen and stir occasionally, you can cook it on low to medium and it will thaw and cook up fine. Turn it a few times to get it thawed all over. Throw in the onion all chopped, and when it starts to brown the bottom of the pan put the tomato sauce and tomatoes in there. Put the beans in, and the garlic and spices and stir. Leave it simmering on medium for as long as you like before eating. Usually it’s a few hours, giving you time to do whatever.

The biscuits were nothing but ol’ Bisquick biscuits. Kneaded them a little and cut them in squares, then put them in a greased muffin tin because the baking sheet was in the sink and I wasn’t feeling up to doing dishes.
