What to serve when you’re pasta-weary and you need dinner in a hurry? 5 ingredient turkey chili for them, and a hearty salad—with almonds, goat cheese and roasted sweet potatoes—for me.

The chili went over well with Rose because we served it “free-style,” meaning, do-it-yourself toppings. It continues to amaze me that letting her add her own toppings turns a meal she’d ordinarily complain about, into a meal she’ll get excited about.TurkeyChili_IMG_0631
