Great * Big * Beautiful * Flakes!
The first snow fall of the season. And now as I type this blog, the snow is melted. No more falling from the sky. But there are clouds up there, so here's to hoping it falls again this evening.
There is a blog I enjoy following, Heirlooms by Ashton House. In this mornings post, she is advertising a lovely giveaway! I'm passing it on to you as well. Here is the web link: http://heirloomsbyashtonhouse.blogspot.com/2010/11/owl-pincushion-giveaway.html
It is the cutest thing! I'm just sure you will love it too!
Here is a recipe for the yummiest chili! Seems a fitting thing to share on a day where we get snow after all.
1 Lb. ground beef
1 Lb. stew meat
1 large can tomatoes
1 large can (29 ounce) tomato sauce
I use three kinds of beans: black, red and pinto (the amount I leave up to you)
1 large onion diced
I large green pepper diced
1/4 cup celery diced (generally 1 stalk worth)
2 teaspoons cumin
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups of water if you see fit to add
Brown meat, add veggies. Cook until the onion is crisp tender (a few min.). Add remaining ingredients. Cook over low heat 2 to 3 hours, stirring every 15 min or so. (This works well in the Crock pot too)
I serve with a salad with vinegar and oil dressing. I also like to garnish my chili. This time I used Frito's and sour cream, but we also like it when we sprinkle with grated cheddar and diced onions.
Hey Grandma! wishes you a wonderful day!
