Chili Corn Chip Pie

Poor “Chili Corn Chip Pie” has been kicked off my weekly menu so many times. Each week I plan out my dinners in advance, but often something will come up one or more nights of the week that causes me to have to change my plan. Often I’ll plan a “wing it” night into the … Continue reading

This picture pretty much sums up my Sunday afternoon. Squirrel in our backyard knows what’s up. Sittin’ and chillin’. Many hours after brunch, when we finally began to work up an appetite again, I started working on dinner, which took about 2 hours: 30 minutes of prep, and 90 minutes of simmering.
