I did my fair share of comfort food cooking this winter. Like most families, one of our favorites is chilli and I made it several times. I don't used ground meat to often to cook with but for my chilli I use both ground beef and sausage. I hate cooking ground meat because I can ever get it crumbly enough. One day I decided I had had enough and got out my potato masher and gave that a try. To my pleasant surprise it worked like a charm! Better than I would have thought. Now, I don't dread cooking ground meats :)
I am a married mother of two living in the Midwest. I work as an independent contractor as a Database Administrator. When I'm not working or spending time with friends & family, I like to read, sell/buy stuff on ebay, run, practice yoga, sew/craft or surf the web.
Decided to give blogging another try. I love to try new things and experiment - mostly on friends and family but sometimes for my own personal amusement.
1. Please don't take anything I say too seriously. I have my opinion just like everyone else, but it's just MY opinion. 2. I will say things that offend people, so for those I offend, please stop reading my blog to retain your sanity. 3. I am a thrifty person and I know I don't HAVE to experiment to save a few buck, I just like to. 4. Just because I don't have my college degree (yet) does not mean I'm not educated. I just don't like loans so I have been paying for my education myself and it is a very slow process. 5. I love to help people and my intentions are always sincere; any suggestions given are given with love. 6. This disclaimer will change without notice, often.
