Never mind Wednesday, I thought I was fairly busy Tuesday ! Wood stove to be lite, coffee to make, "blogs" to type, beds to make, dishes to be put away, puppies to be fed, newspapers to be gotten, homemade burgers and chili to be made, lunch to be had, dishes to be done, puppies to be fed, friends dropping in, table to be set, supper to be had, dishes to be done, puppies to be fed (not to mention everything in between, and the one, or two, or three, or more pit stops necessary for me to rest so I could make it to the end of my day, lol).
I really would like to shake the hand of the person who made the statement, "A Woman's Work is Never Done". Isn't that the truth????
To be quite frank, I would rather be otherwise occupied then to sit like a "bump on a log" all day long in front of a TV, or computer screen....but then again, if it happened to be a really good "novel" I wouldn't mind being curled up in bed all day long with it (ummmm, something I haven't done since four years ago when my sister, Jeanne, and her husband, Cecil, went camping with us).
There is a sale on lean ground beef this week at our local food store. Since I was down to 1 lb. left in the freezer I thought I had better take advantage of the sale with BBQ season rolling around soon (or hope we see more of it "real" soon). The store sells it in long tubes, so after separating it I ended up with nine pounds total. Seven pounds individually wrapped and put into the freezer, one pound made up into "Best Ever Burgers" (recipe posted earlier), and one pound made up into "Cindy's Homemade Chili".
When asked to take along a "slow cooker" dish to my sister, Donna's birthday party two weeks ago, I chose to make a double batch of chili, since I could easily make it ahead, freeze it, thaw it, transport it, and then pop it into the slow cooker on our arrival at the party. Donna called me the other day wanting to know my chili recipe, as there were a few people at the party who thought it was the "best" chili they had ever had.....wow, was I ever surprised and very much appreciated the compliments as well.
I didn't have recipe for my chili, it is one of the very few dishes I have made by just throwing it together (I am sure it must be different every time I make it). I told Donna I would be making it the next day, as my reserves in the freezer had been depleted, and I had just bought some lean ground beef hamburger.
I did make it yesterday, carefully writing everything down as I did it. Along with the "recipe", I even emailed her a visual......from the beginning:
....and the end (can't have the "Kitchen Cat" not having some of the "glory"!
