In the Deep Freeze

What to do when it's two degrees outside and it's still the afternoon.  Why make chili, of course.

Here's all my ingredients:

I've posted the recipe before, but I may have added or removed things over time.  Here is the Chili recipe  from days gone by.  In that version there was no meat, but today I put it in.  I also don't add pasta all that often.  It gets too mushy.  Play with it and use what you like.  If you asked what's my secret...I'd say cream corn, barbecue sauce and V8.  Must have cumin too.

It's just a little bit of everything and will warm you up on a day like today.  I made what I think is a huge pot, but after tonight, I'll be lucky if there is one small bowl left.  This family loves chili.

Stay warm.

Card of the Month

I've been making a few cards lately.  I finished 5 birthday cards on Friday evening to celebrate all the February birthdays, but I didn't use any sketches for my inspiration.  Today though, I made two cards using this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch for inspiration.

Here is the sketch:

Here are my cards:

Version 1

Version 2

Best news on the card front is that I purchased a new printer.  It is awesome.  I've been struggling for so long with the old one and this one does so much and so easily.  I am back to being able to print my card sentiments on the inside before I make the rest of the card.  Yeah!!  It's an Epson WF-3640 if anyone is in the market for a new printer.  Got it at a good price from Office Max thanks to the help of Tyler.  Super knowledgeable.
