Well, I did not go to the office today as the other people had cancelled. It is still cold and they were predicting rain which I had to drive in. I am sure I will be there everyday next week including Sunday to finish up. Hubby and I are putting his chilli together tonight for the chilli cookoff Saturday. I always think it taste better when it has a chance to sit a day or two before serving. Well, we are hoping that on will be good. We are also looking at several things we have not tried before. I am thinking we will have one for his cookoff going and a smaller pot to do the experiment to see how we like it before we do the whole thing.

I am a by the seat of your pants cook. I do look up recipes and follow them to some extent. They also give me idea and sometime I combine one thing from on recipe and something from another. I made some pork chops the other night with some mushrooms in a natural gravy/ I had read about 3 to 4 recipes on pork chops and found that one recipe suggested putting some paprika on the chops before cooking. Well, I through that into my mixture for the chops and Hubby was raving about them. unfortunately I thawed 2 chops and just made enough for our dinner and he did not have one to take to work. I did that because he had a couple of days food in the fridge so I made no extra.

    It's great trying new recipes. Now you've made me hungry for chili. A cook off sounds like a lot of fun.

    Hmmm I am cooking pork chops tonight, but thought I'd do them in an onion/garlic powder type of thing and maybe with cumin. YUMMY!!

    It'll be thrown into a stir fry.

    I am also a throw it together type of person. My Gram taught me to "trust your nose" in doing things and it serves me well.
