You are really special.
Special because I can vegetate all day – in my pajamas – and I won’t feel an ounce of guilt about it. Special because I can enjoy my girls without even thinking about the sink full of dishes. (Okay, that’s a lie. I can’t stand it when the sink is full!) Special because I can throw food into my slow cooker and create a delicious chili. Special because we, our 4-member family, can finally have a meal together.
Thank you, Sunday, for being you.
P.S. Me thinks you should be 48-hours long.
In other exciting Sunday-news, I think I know what you want on this bitterly cold day – Chili. A warm and hearty bowl of slow cooker chili. With sour cream and cheddar cheese on top. Right?! The cold air outside surely isn’t calling for a bowl of ice cream, now is it? But then again, it could be 50-below-zero and I would still opt for a bowl of ice cream. I LOVE that stuff!
About that chili. I think I know the secret to a really really good chili – it takes time, patience, and a whole lotta love. Sure you can make this chili in your beautiful dutch oven in an hour or so, but why bother. Just throw it all in the crock pot, put the lid on, and forget about it. Come back in 6 hours and serve.
One more secret… cinnamon. Call me cray cray, but I love me some cinnamon in my chili.
