When life gives you snow....11+ inches since 11AM today with another 10-14" more predicted...
(You can't see it very well, but if you click the image it will enlarge just enough to show how hard it's coming down - this was at 10:30AM this morning.)
...what's a mom to do?
Make chili! Tailgate Chili to be precise!
And we all know that chili without a little heat (OK, that's more than just a little heat...two jalapenos!), isn't really chili at all! Of course I'll probably be bitching about it tomorrow.
Ofcourse, one of the best parts of the chili is comin' right up!
I LOVE making chili this time of year. The colours are festive and the house smells wonderful whilst it's bubbling away on the stove.
I added a few more ingredients and now I have lovely thick, deep red chili goodness cooking the afternoon away atop the stove.
I know a couple of people (one of which is learning to use a snow blower for the first time ever and being dragged down the driveway by it!), who will appreciate it!
Photos are fuzzy due to being taken through a window and screen
Like I said, the blower was literally pulling her behind it! I don't think she minded too much.
There, that's better! She's got control of it, finally!
So, are you bored silly yet, or just thankful that you aren't sitting under almost 2 feet of snow (from the last two days worth of snow) and having to deal with clearing your driveway and walkways only to have to do it all over again two hours later?
This certainly had to be better than being bored stiff by photos of three teenagers painting my kitchen and then themselves and then MY HAIR (yes there are pictures, no, I don't know if I'm going to post them! And yes, you can see the new colour of the kitchen in the pictures above), didn't it?
