Day Off [Aug. 31st, 2007|12:22 pm]
Lanette
I'm so enjoying my extra day off. I have a homemade healthy chili brewing up in the crock pot, although, on first taste it is missing something. It has mexican stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, chopped onion, roasted garlic, corn, diced chili's, cumin, black pepper, and chili powder. There is something else I usually put in there that gave it a different kick but I can't remember anymore what it was.

I've unleashed the iRobot Roomba in the formal living room. The upstairs, office, and Family Room are a wreck, but the other rooms are really coming together.

The meat is going in, but I have to put it in a bit later as it's frozen (ugh). I didnt put in any salt yet, and you're right! It does need it.

Yum! Good idea. I also have a bit of dark chocolate here. That would kick things up as well, although, won't add to it being healthy.

That's a good idea. I bet it makes it a little more salty.

Mmmm honey. Yes, I must put some in. I have no dark beer and I can't find my cinnamon, but I added 1oz of dark unsweetened chocolate and it's tasting better. I think some honey and cinnamon would really be good.
