Cooking Thursday

When cooler weather comes, a bowl of chili sounds wonderful.  And just when I was thinking I should make some, my friend Jenny from I'm Having a Thought Here posted her easy chili recipe!  I made it, and just as she promised, it was very easy and it was very good.  It had a little spice to it, but not much.  It makes a bunch, so I froze half and have another meal all set to go now.

Jenny's Easy Chili

3 pounds lean ground beef, browned
3 cans Bush's hot chili beans
3 cans Hunts chili ready tomatoes
1 envelope chili seasoning
Stir all ingredients together.  Place in crock pot on low for 4-6 hours.

Dahlia Picking

Saturday, my sister Cheri came with me to check on Dad.  She surprised me by having my niece Halle with her.  Halle lives in New York and had surprised her parents by coming home for the weekend.  I was happy to see her again, and so was my Dad when we got to his house.
On the way home, near my house, we saw a place that was having a dahlia picking deal.  $15 for a bucket of dahlias!  We stopped at my house to get a bucket and some shears.

Lots of choices!

Such pretty flowers!

Cheri and Halle

Here's our big bucket of flowers!   We split them up and Cheri took hers home.

I got this little bouquet 

And this big bouquet!  And Cheri got 2 bouquets too.
That was a great deal, plus some unexpected fun!
