All I can say today is brrr. It was a miserable day here today with nothing but rain. The temperatures started off not so bad this morning but have been quickly dipping down low. I think it’s gonna go down into the 30’2 tonight, yikes! And tomorrow’s high only around 49°.
Time to get out the heated throw for the couch tonight! The cats will love me, I’ll be their new best friend. Well just for the time being I guess, let’s not get carried away. They’ll forget I exist in the morning again, haha.
It was a great day for a pot full of turkey chili though. I’ve had this cooking light recipe saved from last winter and have just gotten around to trying it. They call it a “20 minute recipe” and I’d say that’s about right. It’s simple enough to whip up on any week night.
It’s a good recipe to warm you right up. It’s got just the right amount of heat and spices. Hubs gave it two thumbs up.
