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.

Looks yummy Marcia! It's that time of the year when the stores are getting low!

Looks fantastic, We usually don't put that many veggies in our chili. We will have to give that a try the next time we make a batch.

That looks great, I don't make chilli nearly enough. That is exactly what we will be having this weekend.

This recipe made enough to freeze two large batches to have another time. Whoever invented chili did us all a favor.
