Hi, hey, hello,
Welcome to my monthly wrap up where I share what I’ve been reading, watching, listening, doing and cooking in hopes that it might give you, dearest reader, an idea or three.
The best thing I made this month is chicken chili, a recipe from my mom who I think found it in the newspaper. I really liked it.
If you prefer your chili a bit soupier instead of really thick, you would like it too.
Husband has been asking me to make chicken chili for years and I’ve resisted. So, he gave it rave reviews.
I also liked the flavor–lots of cumin–I added my own twist by topping each bowl with freshly snipped cilantro leaves. Cilantro and cumin go together like chocolate and peanut butter, don’t you think? I served the chili with cornbread.
Let me know if you’d like to me to post the recipe. I want to keep this site cookie-centric but I know the demand for quick, inexpensive, easy meals is perennial.
I’m not reading anything right now other than the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal. I’m also reading some newspaper case studies for an upcoming work meeting but that’s it.
What are you reading?
I just finished the quite dark Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot that Netflix did. Their version is called Chilling Adventures of Sabrina-with good reason. Don’t watch it with the lights out!
I’m on a bit of a witch kick right now. Possibly leftover from Halloween and Day of the Dead. I’m listening to Aaron Mahnke’s new podcast, Unobscured, which supposedly tells the real story of the Salem Witch Trials. (Affiliate link).
A lot of what occurred arose from property disputes. You can’t zone out while you’re listening to Unobscured or you’ll miss something. I’ve found myself listening to each episode more than once.
What were you up to in November? How was your Thanksgiving feast? Also, is there a particular recipe you’re looking for? Let me know. two decades of reporting has made me good at ferreting things out! [email protected]
