Chili Today. . .

Fried chicken tomorrow?
I have food on the brain.  
With the cold weather visiting for a few days I am keen to make some comfort food.   
Add the bonus of a daughter home from college [YAY!] and I have really been thinking about food.
When I asked Squirrel what she wanted to eat this weekend she simply said "Mom food." 
So Mom food it is. 
Chili in the crockpot today, with cheese, onions and sour cream. Side of cornbread.
Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and corn tomorrow. Side of yeast rolls.
A big french toast breakfast before we leave on Sunday. [This is sort of selfish, hee, because I want to use more of the pure maple syrup I received as a gift! Thank you Colenic!] 

It really is chilly today.  This also excites me because you know what that means - right?  The "Skippy's EPIC Sweater Collection" :said in a booming announcer voice:  is getting ready to make a reappearance. Yippee!

I hope you all have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.  See ya' on the flipside Tadpoles.

[PS - I just have to add, on a less happier note - Pat Robertson is a tool. A big tool.]

I absolutely love the cooler weather. Makes me want to knit sweater and bake.

Yes on the comfort food! Yes on the sweater collection! And a big, resounding YES on Pat Robertson being a tool!

Oooh, chili sounds good. The weather's a little cooler here today, too, and it's supposed to last over the weekend. But I'll be taking advantage of the weather by opening the windows and painting the living room and hallways. (If ya don't hear from me for a while, it'll be because I'm flat on my back moaning!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I downloaded the new FB app for my android phone and now can't figure out how to post to someone's wall.

The food sounds good. It's definitely chili weather around here!

In the interest of being polite and getting along with everyone, I will ignore all references to enjoying cool weather (Ya'll are sick! Ya hear me? Sick!!!) Ahem...excuse that outburst. It was the Sybil in me.

I totally agree that Robertson is a tool. I won't say more because I would really be impolite!

And over here we would love to have some warmer weather ;) it's funny isn't it. We've had no thing called summer this year, only rain...wind..more rain...and more! Chili sounds nice - hope you enjoy your meal. Glad to hear that your daughter is there with you :)

Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs x

I came from Thisisme's and Happy B/D. Parties, parties everywhere. Cranking up for a big weekend. I know your kids will enjoy their Mom food.

Juli said...

I know you're not my Mom, but can I come for the food anyway?


I'm starving.

Wasting away... really I've lost 3 lbs just thinking about cooking something for myself.
