Anyways, let's talk about my dinner, shall we? A few weeks ago, I found this Dolores Chili Brick at Winco. Instantly, I remembered my mom using this and so I impulsively bought thinking I'd use it for chili beans.
The night before last, I cooked some cranberry beans with garlic and onions. I knew I had that in my fridge. I looked in my freezer and pulled out some taco meat. I boiled the crap out of it with salt and onion until tender and then placed it in the fridge to cool for the next day.
Last night, I was exhausted. So much to learn at Office #1 that I was kaput. But I remembered I had the beans and the taco meat. So I pulled out the chili brick and cooked it with the meat for 30 minutes.
Then, I added my beans. It looks fattening,doesn't it? I added some reduced fat cheese to my bowl and began to chow down.
It's really good. Can I tell you something? I was too scared to look at the list of ingredients in the chili break. Obviously they can't be healthy.
To keep from over-doing it on the chile beans, I protioned out 2 cup servings and froze.
I think the cooking is helping me to relax. Hey, whatever it takes, right?
I'm off to celebrate my son's 31st birthday. Gosh... I can't believe I'm that old...
