Looks can be deceiving.

December 17, 2012

I was a little worried about tonight’s meal selection. I tried a new chili recipe, Chicken Chili Verde, and sometimes new recipes don’t go over too well in our house (remember the spinach pizza I told you about). The last time I made chili I made it in the crockpot and it kinda tasted like watered down beef, so I was hoping for a lot out of this one.

Mike likes thick chili, like stick to your ribs chili. This chili wasn’t so think and Mike was pretty skeptical at first glance. But it was so good that he got seconds. He said that the cheese helped thicken it up, but I’m pretty sure he really liked it. 🙂 I also really liked it, the cinnamon gave it an interesting flavor.

I had a cookie exchange with some girlfriends this afternoon so I did all the prep work before heading over to Kathryn’s house.

And then all I had to do when I got home was put it on the stove and let it cook for a couple hours. Super easy. I think that I would like to get into the habit of doing more food prep on Sundays to get ready for the week. I like the idea of having the extra time after work.

Our house is now full of man pleasing cookies, Mike confessed to me this morning that he had two oreo balls for breakfast. I might need to figure out how to lock the freezer until Christmas. Good thing it’s only a week away.
