You know the great thing about a holiday weekend? Today is Monday, and it doesn’t suck. All day today, I thought it was Sunday. This is partially because I worked on Saturday, so instead of three days off I have had two. But I’m cool with it because when I go back to work tomorrow, it’s TUESDAY!
It is insane to think that we are only a couple days away from June 1st. Wow, could time please slow down for one second? Before you know it, it will be winter again. I know, I know… I should watch my mouth.
Speaking of that word – you know, the one that a Minnesotan doesn’t dare say in May (even though I already did… I have never been a very good Minnesotan). I made chili this week! Weird, right?
When we were talking the meal prep menu – hubster wanted a variety of meats and so he requested chili. And, although it is totally the wrong time of year for chili, I give him what he asks for. Not without a small protest though…
This is NOT your traditional chili. It’s 100 times better, I swear. Such a good mix of flavors and textures in this chili. We cannot get enough. And what do I do with things I love? I share them! So, now you can make your very own pot of delicious fiesta taco chili! Totally made that name up, but its like a party full of flavor and you know how I feel about tacos.
