So… it was rainy and cold today. i hope it stops raining and being so wet tomorrow… it’s so gross when it’s like this. Anyways, on days like this, it’s chili time! So as a little “welcome to cooler weather,” here’s my recipe:

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • half an onion, diced
  • one can of diced tomatoes
  • one can tomato soup
  • one can tomato sauce
  • two cans pinto beans
  • two cups water
  • one packet chili seasoning and cayenne to taste

So you brown the ground beef and onion together, drain a little and add in the rest of the ingredients, stirring to mix. Bring to a boil and then reduce to low heat, cooking for two to three hours.

TIP: When you add the cans of beans, add the liquid in the beans–it acts as a thickening agent with all the starch and helps the chili hold together better.


Chad goes to his conference tomorrow to present his research, I’m sure he’ll do well. I’m going to be finishing an AAH unit and cleaning all day, nothing like a good clean-up to make you want to stay home. Haha… that, and a nice comfy bed, soft down blanket and comfy pillows 🙂 I think you can tell i’m a little sleepy right now!

Going to bed now, i’ll post more news tomorrow!
