Chicken Chili Recipe ~ This Is The BEST!!

I decided last week to make Chicken Chili.   My Hubs says...  I don't like White Chicken Chili.  Me... Too bad, because that's what I am making.

I kind of felt bad so I made him some cornbread to go with the Chicken Chili.  I figured if he hated the chili that bad, he could fill up on cornbread.   I even put whole corn in his cornbread.

Well, Lo and Behold, he loved the Chicken Chili and wants me to make it again.    It really did turn out great.    I didn't have cannelli beans so I ended up using garbanzo and pinto beans.  Thats all I had.  Worked!

Chicken Chili
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
1 Small Onion (peel and chop)
2 Cloves garlic minced
Salt and Pepper to your taste
2 Chicken Breasts Cubed ( I used thighs)
1 Tablespoon Cumin
1 teaspoon chili pepper
2 teaspoons oregano
3 Cans Cannellini Beans
3 Cups Chicken Broth

In a large pot, fry onion and then add garlic.  Fry until onion is clear.
Add Chicken to the onion and garlic, fry until chicken is cooked
Add Cumin, Chili Pepper, Oregano and salt and pepper.
Stir, then add Chicken Broth and Beans.

Simmer about 40 minutes.  I simmered mine until the broth started to thicken just a bit.

I Am Learning About Healing Stones Health Benefits ~ Not Just A Pretty Stone!!

Do any of you believe in or use healing stones?  I have just started getting interested in them.
My Hubs knew I was interested in stones, so he bought me some.

Probably my favorite, which is also my birthstone is the Amethyst.    Even though it is my favorite, it is probably the one I wear the least.

The stones I wear the most are the Citrine.
Here is one that I have no idea what it is.  Anyone know?     
I am thinking it might be quartz of  some sort.  I am taking it to my Daughter since her birthstone is Peridot and it kind of reminds me of that.

Maybe she can figure out what kind of stone it is made from.

I am not sure how these stones work to help heal the body, nor do I know if they really work.  But I am willing to give anything a try.  Who knows, it may just work.
About And Health Benefits

Amethyst is one of the rarest form of Quartz. But, even though it is rare it is very common and known to most of us.
Many use the Amethyst for addiction purposes.  Addiction to alcohol.  The Greek meaning for Amethyst is Not Drunken
It has also been used for pain, sleeping and hearing problems.

Aventurine is in the quartz family.  It is Characterized by the bright mica and other minerals in the stone that give a sparkling effect.
Green Aventurine is known as " The Stone Of Opportunity" Many consider this the luckiest of all crystals in gaining prosperity and wealth.  Some even think it helps them in competitions and games of chance because of it's winning energy.

Most of the Citrine on the market is not really citrine but heat treated Amethyst.  It is rare to find real citrine.
Citrine creates positive energy and also wealth.  It offers healing benefits on the physical, mental and spirtiual levels.

Poppy Jasper
Poppy Jasper used to be known as Brecciated Jasper, but is now known as Poppy Jasper.
Poppy Jasper brings relaxation and a sense of wholeness.

Rose Quartz
Rose Quartz is sometimes called the Love Stone
Rose Quartz can help reinstate gentle loving forces.  It is also used to restore the mind to harmony.
Some people use the Rose Quartz for coughs and bronchial problems.

I really don't know a lot about these stones or what and how they heal, but I am learning and having fun doing it.  Even if they don't really heal, I like them!!

SteriPEN Classic 3 For Safe Purified Drinking Water. Anywhere. Anytime ~ Great For Hunters, Hikers, Anyone!

The SteriPEN Classic 3 comes with a case to protect the
UV Water Purifier, plus it comes with a filter to
filter out leaves, sticks and any other debris that
could be in the water.

SteriPEN is the Original handheld UV water purifier that has been keeping outdoor enthusiasts healthy with ultraviolet light for over 12 years.

Can be used from moutain ranges to tropical beaches, exotic cities to your home emergency kit.

Reusable for up to 8,000 liters.  That is 7 years of fresh drinking water.

The SteriPEN Classic 3 is the first Alkaline Battery Powered Handheld UV Water Purifier

In October, my Hubs will be going to Montana to hunt the mountains there.   When you go out alone hunting, you better be prepared with water and possibly some food.   Who knows what could happen, he could get lost, hurt, or a snowstorm might keep him from getting back to safety.   There are just so many things that could go wrong.   I don't even want to think about it.

With the SteriPEN Classic 3, fresh clean, purified drinking water will be one less worry that both of us have to think about.
It is small enough, so it will fit into his backpack that he carries while hunting.  I was surprised that something so small could work so well.

The SteriPEN Classic 3 is very easy to use.
All you do is remove the lamp cover
Press the activation button ( once for 1/2 liter, twice for 1 liter)
Submerge in water and stir (the lamp will illuminate when the water sensor pins detect water)
The lamp will shut off when the treatment is complete.  How easy is that?
Plus... the SteriPEN Classic 3 is more water tight than previous models.

Here is a video showing how easy it is to use.

When my Hubs gets back from hunting, I will be putting the SteriPEN into a container I have in our basement for home emergency situations.  That is if I can ever get it away from him.
As soon as he gets back from hunting Montana, he will be hunting Pennsylvania, so he will probably take the SteriPEN hunting then also.   I might never see it again!!.    Doesn't turkey season come in at some point?  And then there is archery...

Zucchini Relish Pickles Made With @NuNaturals NuStevia Reb99 Pure Stevia Extract ~ No Sugar

I know a lot of you don't like the after taste that you get with some sweetners.   I myself don't mind the after taste, but then I am just happy to have a sweetner that I can use with no health problems.

Now!  NuNaturals has come out with NuStevia Reb99.  It has NO AFTER TASTE!!  NONE!!

NuStevia Reb99™ is a pure extract of the Stevia plant. 99.8% of Rebaudioside-A(Reb-A) is extracted. Reb99™ is a very high grade Stevia extract. NuStevia Reb99 has a very clean taste profile with no unpleasant aftertaste as other Reb-A extracts can have. This is a powder extract. This form is excellent for mixing up large batches of beverages or for recipes. It is our most economical form of Stevia to use.

This product is packaged in a 1 oz plastic bag. There are 810 servings. A serving size is 1/64 of a teaspoon which tastes as sweet as 1 teaspoon of sugar. 3/4 teaspoon equals 1 cups of sugar in terms of sweetness.

NuNaturals Pure NuStevia Extract contains absolutely no calories or carbohydrates. NuStevia Reb99 should have no effect on blood sugar levels for most individuals.

I had so much zucchini this year that I had to find a way to help use them up.  No way was I letting them go to waste.

I was at my sisters a few weeks ago.  She had made this Zucchini Pickle Relish and gave me some to try.     I couldn't wait to get home and make my own.  So Good!!

You can make either zucchini relish or, if you cut the zucchini larger, you can eat them like pickles.

Zucchini Pickle Relish
4 Cups Chopped Zucchini ( I cut mine into 1" pieces)
1 1/2 Cups Coarsly Chopped Onion
1 1/2 Cups Peppers ( I used both Hot and Sweet Peppers)
1 1/2 Tablespoon Pickling Salt
1 teaspoon NuStevia Reb99 Or NuStevia No Carbs Blend
1/3/4 Cup Vinegar
2 teaspoons pickling spice

. In a container, mix zucchini, onions and peppers.  Cover with cold water and let stand 2 hours.
. Drain then rinse the vegetables
. Put the  Salt, pickling spice, stevia  and vinegar into a pot and bring to a boil.  Add the drained    vegetables and boil for 10 minutes.
. You can now can this, or put into the fridg and eat after a few days.

My Zucchini Pickles don't last long.  They taste so good that I eat them daily.   They taste like sweet pickles to me.

Next, I am going to try this with hot peppers and cauliflower.
