Mmm! It's that time of year again! Time to be a slight bit chilly, wanting to warm up in the evenings with a warm bowl of stew, a snuggly blanket and slippers and a good book. Then slip under the feather comforter with my Hunny and stay toasty warm all night. Yes, fall is here. Hoorah!
With that in mind, and thinking of the wood smoke I'll smell every time I let the dogs out this evening (I love the smell of wood smoke!), I thought long and hard this morning about tonight's dinner. Oh alright. I opened the freezer to see what I had to last me till Friday and pay day. Ground beef and ground turkey. Hmm. What to make, what to make? Think, think, think.
If you know me in real life, you know that this is probably a no brainer this time of year. Ground meat nearly always means chili! And since I'm short on time today, I just wanted to drop in a couple of photos of tonight's dinner, maybe inspire you to make some yourself.
Doesn't that look scrumptious? It sure smells really good. Serve it over corn chips, topped with shredded cheese and sour cream - my kids eat tomatoes and beans this way, no problem. Yum!
That? Oh, that's the fat. Gross, huh? I browned the meat with onions (from my garden!) and garlic, then drained it some good. Once it cools I'll give it to the dogs. If they'll eat it. They're a little finicky when I've browned the meat with onions and garlic.
Go! Dig out your favorite chili recipe! Head to the store for some corn chips and cheese. Surprise your family with something warm and delicious this week!
Until I write again ...
