It’s been awhile since I’ve done a weekend post! First of all, guess what? I (finally) got a new computer!! If you recall, the monitor on my laptop died back in November, and since then, I’ve been using my half-dead laptop hooked up to Wayne’s desktop monitor. It’s been pretty annoying and inconvenient, but it worked just fine and allowed me to remain in denial about needing a new one. Well, to make a long story short, the other half of the laptop died yesterday, and we just decided to get it over with and go get a new one. Thanks to the wisdom of a teenaged associate at Best Buy, I came out with a shiny, new laptop! Keep in mind, I got my old laptop way back in college…. I’ve had it for approximately SIX years. That’s like an eternity in computer years. So, having a computer that does things quickly and efficiently is pretty foreign to me! I’m sure I’ll get used to it though 😉
We also had our taxes done today. We went in expecting the worst and came out owing much less than we anticipated. What a relief it is to have that crap done! I have no clue how anyone can even begin to understand all that stuff….
Anyway, I’m still a little backed up on my meals, so this one was a dinner from a few nights ago. I’ve said it a million times: I love soup. Love it. This one was very similar to my uncle’s taco soup, and I loved it.
Turkey Chili Taco Soup

I omitted the kidney beans and used 1 lb ground turkey instead of 1.3 lbs. I really like how the refried beans melted and thickened the soup. The cheese and tortilla chips on top are a must, too 🙂
