I like lots and lots of fresh air, so I always have a window or two open somewhere in the house, no matter what the weather.
But right now it's just barely hitting on 9C (46F), and I just couldn't stand the cold anymore...
So those windows are now shut!
And I even have a jacket on - indoors!
Hood and all.
No socks though.
Or even shoes for that matter.
Because there's enough Okie in me, that I purely refuse to wear shoes unless the snow is knee-deep.
It's just a family trait, I guess.
And I refuse to turn the heater on, just on general principles. (which actually means I'm a tightwad, but I'm not admitting to that. The admitting to being part Okie is enough for now.)
Something that would warm the cockles of my heart, and hopefully stave off frostbite on my nekkid tootsies.
Something like.... oh, I don't know.
So here's my recipe for one of the best darn chili's you'll ever find
Open one of these:
How easy is that, eh? I'll betcha that The Pioneer Woman would be gosh-darn proud of me!
Now, on to the rest of the meal... The Old Guy has been begging and begging for some Green Onion Cakes lately and I promised to make him some with tonight's dinner.
But Chinese-style green onion cakes with
homemade canned chili?
Hmmm... I don't know about that.
But maybe that's just me. I don't like mixing my metaphors, and I don't like mixing cuisines.
So, what I'm gonna do, is add some chopped green chili's and maybe some red pepper flakes along with the green onions when I make these babies... to give it more of a Southwestern flavor.
