Menu Monday

We have enjoyed a lazy snow day at home. We played in the snow, made snowcream, watched a movie, ate popcorn, and now a big pot of chili is simmering on the stove. I will make a pan of brownines too. I love SNOW DAY traditions.

Here's our menu for this week.

Sunday: BBQ chicken, baked potatoes, and salad
Monday: Chili
Tuesday:Jambalaya, slaw, and cornbread
Wednesday: Chicken potpie
Thursday: Lumpia and wild rice
Friday: Date night
Saturday: Spaghetti and salad

Here's how I make my chili.

1 pkg of ground beef, turkey, or deer meat
1 green pepper
1 jalapeno (seeded)
1/3 onion
Minced garlic
Place in a pan to brown meat and saute other ingredients.
Dump in:
2 cans rinsed pinto beans
2 cans rinsed kidney beans
1 can rinsed black beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans tomato sauce
water to desired consistency
Chili powder
Frank's Red Hot
1 Tbsp Cocoa powder

Simmer for several hours or place in crockpot on low all day. Top with crackers or tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and sour cream. Yummy!

Well, I'm off to make our bowls of chili!
