Beanless Vegetable Chili

July 28, 2013

0

The title of this post alone might be enough to send some die-hard chili fans into apoplectic fits. Not only is this chili meatless, it doesn’t even contain beans. You might find yourself wondering why I would even make a chili excluding the two most common ingredients – it’s simple. Sometimes you just have things […]

CSA Week Three and Four

July 25, 2013

Last week I went out of town. Luckily one of my wonderful neighbors was able to make the weekly pick-up, so I arrived home to find a fridge full of delicious veggies waiting for me. Week Three was slightly less abundant than usual, due to stretch of 90+ degree days, which tend to be hard […]
