Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

I'm coming up to the end of some of my stored produce from last season. I think there's one more bag of tomatoes in the freezer. On Wednesday I made chili. Here are the things that came from my stores:
bag of frozen tomatoes
last head of garlic
habenero pepper (grown in 2009)
a mixture of frozen vegetables that I had labeled for soup
I used 96% fat free ground beef, onions, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Here the vegetables are added.
Then the tomatoes. I supplemented with a can of diced tomatoes.
I used canned Northern beans, dark kidney beans and not pictured black beans. Also added molasses, chili powder, habenero pepper, and worchestershire sauce.
The finished chili served with grated cheddar cheese. It was spicy and good with corn bread muffins.
