Odd, this has been a really warm winter so far…….
I know that as I type this, that stating that fact, we’ll be in
for some kind of humdinger of snow or ice later on, but
I’m chancing it.
We’ve been craving comfort food here, warmer than usual or not.
Kenny made a great pot of chili that had all kinds of things in it like
beef, bacon, whiskey and beer.
It was called “Red Hot Whiskey Chili” and you can get the recipe HERE.
WARNING….we like hot and I’m not talking 98 degrees, I’m talking spicy!
Kenny put in less than 1/2 as much chipotle peppers in adobo sauce as it called for and it was STILL to spicy hot for us! I added some cheese on top, but it was still hot….added some ketchup and it was still hot!
He thinks he’ll make it again, but leave out the chilies this next time.
My comfort food dish this week was turkey pot pie.
We’d cooked a turkey earlier in the week and I had a few odds and ends of veggies
lying around….carrots, celery, mushrooms, pearl onions, peas…..so I sauteed those in a little butter, added in a can of cream of chicken soup and a little milk and put it in a pie dish.
Pictures of hot pads that my great-grandmother crocheted.
I never saw her crochet, but I think of her every time I use them….
another sort of comfort I suppose.
My mantra, “Use those beautiful things that people have made”
