giving it a whirl.

This whole meal planning thing that is.
I am really a craving eater so I couldn't narrow it down to a what night we eat what list.
But, this is my attempt at a trusty "I want to make dinner easier" list.
On tonight's menu....Chili and cornbread.
Not my kids favorite, but it's cold here and a hearty dinner sounds yummy to Mom and Dad.
We trump the whiny I want Mac and cheese cries tonight.
Recipe goes like this.
1lb ground beef
1 small tomato sauce can
1 regular sized can of diced tomato
1 can kidney beans
a couple splashes of beer
cinnamon
garlic pepper
cumin
1 pkg. of chili seasoning mix.
Brown meat with cinnamon, cumin and garlic pepper.
Just keep shakin' it on until it makes a nice covering over the meat.
When browned add to a pot with all the other goodies.
warm up.
Serve on white rice
top with a dollop of sour cream and lots of sharp cheddar.
I like a little dill pickle too.
Cheers to a warm Academy awards night.
oh don't forget the cornbread with honey butter.

I love how you have breakfast for dinner on your list. We have "BFD" probably once a week. It's a keeper!
