I like to allow myself to have one cheat day a week but it seems my cheat days spill from Friday night to Saturday to Sunday and even onto Monday! If I am going to have one cheat day it needs to just be ONE cheat day! I will work on that this coming weekend.
Tuesday I went to a cute little lunch place called Jester's Cafe. My fiance's aunt ordered the White Chicken Chili and it looked absolutely delicious! After seeing it I wanted to replicate it and decided to make it last night! It was super easy and cheap too. I found a recipe at Food.com and made some minor changes to it.
White Chicken Chili
Here's what you'll need:
A Crock Pot
1 can yellow corn, drained and rinsed
2 cans northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 can cream of chicken soup (98% fat free)
1 can of diced tomatoes and green chiles
2 cups of water
2 chicken bullion cubes (low sodium)
1 packet Taco Bell taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup of sour cream + a spoonful for serving
Shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese (just a little bit to sprinkle on top when serving)
1/4 cup chopped onion, raw
Halve raw chicken breasts and place pieces in the bottom of the crock pot. Pour corn and beans over the chicken.
Dissolve 2 bullion cubes into two cups of boiling water to make broth. In a medium bowl mix broth, cream of chicken soup, can of diced tomato and green chiles, and taco seasoning packet until blended. Pour mixture over the beans, and corn. Set crock pot to low and cook for about 8 hours.
After cooking 8 hours (or until chicken is done) shred chicken, stir in 1/2 cup sour cream and your done!
Top your bowl with a dollop of sour cream, a few sprinkles of shredded cheese and a tsp chopped onion. Serve with a yummy salad. Delicious!

Now I am shifting from last nights dinner to last weekend's happenings. This past Saturday we took a little drive to the beautiful Southport, NC. We walked around the shore for a little while before I remembered one of my favorite movies A Walk to Remember shot a lot of scenes here. I didn't see any specific places that the movie was actually filmed at but I know we were in the general area.
Trisden and I had fun exploring the pier and taking pictures. The day was a perfect October afternoon, sunny and chilly out. It reminded me of home!
Once we got back to Wilmington, I Googled Mandy Moore's house in A Walk to Remember and we found it and were able to drive by! I was so excited but it was too dark to take a picture. This is a photo of the house. What a beautiful home. I recently watched the movie commentary and they discussed how they shot scenes inside the home as well. So interesting!
Are you an A Walk to Remember Fan? Right now I am loving any movie that was done around The Year 2000 what about you?
