Mmm…I have to say, my chili was even better the second time around! I think its because it had a chance for all the flavors to meld together….or it was perhaps that I baked amazing cornbread today and crumbled it into the chili bowl to get the true chili-and-cornbread experience. The cornbread. Delicious. I’ve made this recipe a ton of times in the past and it still remains the best cornbread I’ve ever had. It’s fast, its easy, its HEALTHY–with no white sugar or flour…only good old fashioned whole grains with a touch of maple syrup for sweetness. I cut down on the amount of eggs in the original recipe and it never has seemed to matter. I made a loaf and had one slice with dinner and froze the rest (of course). My freezer is getting quite full. I need to stop buying more food and eat what I have! Sigh…
I ended up getting to go to yoga this afternoon and it was wonderful. I haven’t been in a couple weeks because things have been so crazy and it was great to just get back on the mat, stretch and meditate. I also hit up the library beforehand for some new reading material since the roommate is out of town for the rest of the week and the place is quite quiet with just me! I got “Consumption” by Kevin Patterson and “The Gift” by Richard Paul Evans.
Before I went to yoga I ate a new bar I bought at W.F. It was a honey roasted granola bar and just contained rolled oats, peanuts, almond and honey. It satisfied me and got me through my practice easily.
Now I’m craving something sweet…..
I ended up crumbling all that cornbread + promise light right into my chili and savored every last bite. The BEST way to eat chili—hands down!
