The days are getting shorter, the grass is covered by leaves and frost sparkles in the sunlight in the early mornings – winter is definitely on its way. There aren’t many things that I like about winter. There’s just something about leaving in the morning when it’s still dark out and then getting home as the sun is setting that is pretty depressing. I don’t like the cold, and I may be one of the few Canadians who hates the snow; to sum it all up, winter and Lou just don’t really go together. Also, talking in third person and Lou don’t really go well together either. (Note to self: no more third person.)
I’m going to try and keep the negativity to a minimum here because Living Lou is a positive space, and there are a few things that I love about winter. One of those is inevitably Christmas and the other is comfort food; soups, stews, baked pasta, oatmeal, I could go on and on! If you were hanging around Living Lou last year you’ll remember the chili I shared that is one of mine and my Dad’s favourites. Today I’m sharing a new and easy chili, all it requires is a quick saute and preparation of the ingredients and then you can just dump it all in the slow cooker turn it on, and come home to a heart warming, flavorful chili after work.
Is chili one of your favourites during the cold months?
