I've had plenty of time today to walk around outside and take pix. I've been waiting and waiting for a service man to show up. They said he would be here sometime between 8 and 5. Finally, he has showed up at 2 pm!! I should have known it would be closer to 5 than 8! Guess, I'm not very good at waiting.
The trees are just about bare around here. It's been so very windy lately that I feel that I'm in Kansas! The above tree is one of the maples in my yard. The following pictures are of my neighbors trees. They have a different maple than ours, I guess.
It's going to be a busy week here with something going on nearly every day. I'll probably be making a big pot of chili this weekend. I have a recipe for chili from a former co-worker that she had brought in to work for our group to share that was very good. I'm thinking of trying it out on my family.
1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin, cooked and drained
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon oregano
1 can pearl onions (or use onion powder..I use dried onion flakes)
1 Tablespoon chili powder (add more later if desired)
1-15 ounce can of pinto beans
1-15 ounce can of black beans
1-15 ounce can of red kidney beans
2-15 ounce cans of diced tomatoes
1-15 ounce can of corn, drained
1 small can of button mushrooms
Place in pot and cook until done. If the consistency needs thinning, add
1 small can of tomato sauce.
Salt and Pepper to taste
Note: I did try it out and it turned out delicious!
Until next time....
