It's that time of year, isn't it? All the cozy recipes that are floating around my computer - all the pumpkin-squash-chili-type recipes make me just want to snuggle in for the night. It's fall at its best.
So, I feel like I need to make sure people understand something... I am having a blast with this whole blog thing. But I am NOT a cooking expert. Er, chef. I am not even really a photographer, although I'm not sure what constitutes a photographer. I take pictures! Photographer!
But I AM a really proud daughter who wants to tell the story of her parents' amazing cabin garden. And that means sharing what comes out of it... and food - glorious, snuggly, fall, harvest food - is one of those awesome things.
So I'm doing my best to share what gets created. This one comes from the hubby: harvest chicken chili.
My husband is an awesome cook. (I, on the other hand, am a naive wanna-be-chef that stumbles around the kitchen trying to remember what I was just doing. Easily distracted = me.)
Last weekend we had a little time without the kiddos (which is basically the only way I can get anything done in the kitchen), and made a slew of yummy stuff. Andy took all the goodies in the fridge and made this cozy chicken chili, minus the beans (cause we just didn't need them) - along with some garden goodies: peppers, tomatoes, jalapeños, onions...
Anybody feel like cozying up and having a cup of chili? Yeah, me too.
