D has been out of town all week for work. I don’t generally announce that stuff so as not to entice would-be robbers. But he’s back today so don’t be getting any big ideas. On a somewhat related note, the house alarm went off this morning while I was getting ready and it scared the bejezus out of me. Turns out I sat my blow dryer down a little hard and the system registered it as a glass break.
I tell you this mostly just to tell you that since the cat was away, the mice were really lazy and I didn’t feel like cooking. Enter giant pot of white chicken chili.
What you’ll need:
2 tsp. olive oil
32 oz. chicken broth
1 medium onion
2 cups cooked chicken
2 cans whatever kind of beans you fancy. (I usually use navy, or in this case kidney)
1 can corn
1 (8 oz) can green chilis
1/2 tsp. Cumin
Toppings can include chopped green onion, pepperjack cheese, cilantro, sour cream, etc.
Sautee the onion in the olive oil until translucent.
Now here comes the tricky part… Throw everything else into the pot.
Let it simmer for about 30 minutes, then add your delicious toppings and devour.
Since this meal wasn’t exactly an involved process, and Junior was happily eating little kid ravioli,
I tinkered around in the half bath. Odd as it is to say, this is one of my favorite spaces in the house. The vanity is an old carpenters chest. The sink is a $7 bucket from Hobby Lobby. And the walls are trimmed in cedar. I just love it.
I like the light we have in there, but I added a lamp and it just gives off such a warm glow every time I walk by. I left Junior’s framed weeds and added a candle and wooden punkin, for just a touch of fall. This is all framed by my favorite door in the house.
To me, this little space epitomizes the feel we wanted for the whole house, and I love the way it turned out.
Hope you try and like the chili!
Sorry for talking about food and bathrooms in the same post.
