It is way past time for this cold weather to arrive. Think it has arrived.
Saturday made Chili cooked and will be so good for the next several days.
I make it different then most people.
A good friend now gone over 15 years made it this way,
adding chopped celery, carrots and the usual onions ground beef, red pinto beans
and chopped tomato's, along with Chili Powder, I do not use much hot seasoning,
tears up my stomach. Now my son would use a lot of not sauce, does on everything
but not is mama.
Clarice this is the way you made your chili and now I do it this way,
seems I am receiving a few more vegetables.
When a small amount is left I add some pasta and top with cheese.
Cooked in mother's iron dutch oven she gave me. Anything you cook in this
dutch oven turns out wonderful.... A roast falls apart.
and then turned snow white after it grew back in.
I remember this Fall day so well, her daughter took her and I and another friend
to a park with an old bridge and Chris her daughter made a wonderful picnic lunch.
Spread a blanket on the ground and enjoyed this Fall afternoon,
Miss so many old friends so very much and most are all gone and guess they are all gone.
You do not meet many new special friends after 75, true for me but maybe not for others.
A special friend came by this morning and had tea and blueberry bread with me, I talked so
much more then usual. She helped me put the contoured sheet on my bed and saw how
difficult it is :) Polly, thank you so much for the visit and please come again...
I keep a well stocked pantry
just in case not up to shopping
and for some reason Callie's dry food almost gone
so need to make another to market.
Needed to anyway as thinking of adding Butternut Squash or Acorn Squash to
Thanksgiving dinner. Always make a topping of rice, onions and may add something else.
