There are lots of signs of fall around our house lately! I don't know if it's memories of the first few weeks of school, football games, or camping trips, but just the feeling of fall makes me happy. We made a big pot of chili this weekend and cornbread muffins.
I think chili is one of those foods that is probably a little different everywhere you get it. In fact, rarely does my chili turn out the same twice! This time I really liked the recipe, so I'm going to write it at the bottom of this post exactly what I did -- mostly for my memory so I can make it again, but if you're up for trying out a new chili recipe you might like it too! Callie liked it...
Can you believe it's already mid-September? Time is just flying be, we must be having fun (or are super busy and have been working hard)! This weekend we've also been remodeling/renovating/updating our master bathroom. Good-bye, taupe sponge-painting...it's about time we got rid of you! ;) I had such a hard time deciding on paint color, that's probably the reason we are just getting around to painting it now. I went with this color by Martha Stewart. I also got these oval-tilt mirrors with glass shelves to go under each one. Hopefully it will all go together!
Here's my chili recipe - let me know what you think if you make it!
Nealy's Fall Chili
3 lbs ground beef (I used 93% lean)
3/4 yellow onion, finely chopped
3/4 green pepper, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 lg can whole tomatoes
1 lg can diced tomatoes
2 cans Hunt's tomato sauce
1 can dark red kidney beans
2 lag cans Bush's medium chili beans
1 T cumin
4 T chili powder
2 T sugar
salt and pepper
Cook onion and pepper until soft; add garlic and beef, and cook until done. Drain beef then add remaining ingredients and simmer 30 minutes. Enjoy!!!
