Be Having Chili Monday

How often do you try a new recipe? How about a new recipe without an accompanying photo or taste test?

I must admit that I will almost never try a new recipe where I can’t see a picture of the finished product or I haven’t eaten it. Another look into my perfectionist ways!

Today, I took a recipe from my foodie friend and blogger and I am giving it a go! I have seen photos so I am confident my family will be eating a home cooked meal for dinner rather than takeout pizza.

Chili Monday could become a tradition. This was the easiest slow cooker recipe ever. I made it before we took JC to school at 8:15am so that tells you how easy it is.

Here’s this beautiful chili this morning:

Be Driving Home After Surgery

I have been singing this song all morning. Country Roads. This is the version by Olivia Newton-John, not John Denver.

Mom and dad are driving home in the sunshine today. They should be back at home before dinner. I am extremely grateful.

M was a star down in VCity holding the fort at the hotel, taking meals to the hotel, going swimming with dad and being a great support for mom and dad. Her hubby,C, again held down the fort at home to free M up and even endured the two hour pre-op appointment last Tuesday. What a team!

Nana and papa just dropped in on they way. Yeah!!
