|Chili Stuffed Baked Potato|
I truly hope we don't loose power as our main heat source is electric. It's something that we need to take care of as money allows. A secondary heat source I mean. If worse comes to worse we can always use the oven for warmth as it runs on propane. We sure don't have to worry about ventilation as this old RV has very little insulation. No matter how much we try to insulate it will never be "air tight". If the power does go out for an extended period of time there is always the wood stove in the barn That sucker can put out some heat and we've got wood stacked for it too.
Do you have some meals that you like to make when it's cold out? I always think of a big pot of chili when the weather turns cold. And this is definitely chili weather. I made a big pot yesterday along with a pot of beans. I wasn't sure if I wanted chili or chili beans so I made some just in case! Today I think I'll make some cornbread to go with the left-overs. I made a big pot just so we could have it for a few meals. I like left over chili on a bed of rice. Or Chili Con Huevos. Or chili stuffed baked potatoes. There are many takes on chili around the country. Neither of us believe that chili should have beans in it. If you want beans in your chili then its called chili beans not chili! I'm just sayin.....
So how do you make chili in your neck of the woods? Beans? No Beans? Red Chili? White Chili? Hot? Mild? Big pots or Small batches? Winter meal or year round?
