Summer's just a memory.........

It's hard to believe, but we are just a week and half away from Thanksgiving and Christmas is just around the corner.

Where the heck did the long days of summer go?

I guess we are lucky.......even tho it's getting cold at night, we still have no snow.


So....with the colder nights and days, hubby decided it was time to do some R.V. winterization on our pretty little Arctic Fox.

Get it all ready for winter. That's what we did last weekend. Cleaned out the foodstuff inside, and drained the hot water heater, and water tank before flushing some r.v. anti freeze thru the lines.

Now, we'll just have to wait until spring.

Cold Days........Hot Chili!!!

With the days starting to dip down into the 30's and 40's, I start thinking of hot,yummy meals. Stew's, soup's and of course chili.

 I have to admit that I just have problems making a great pot of chili.

I've tried oodles of recipes, spices and suggestions from friends and family. I just couldn't put the right flavor together for my chili.

I like a lot of flavor with just a hint of heat. Just couldn't get it right.

Until my daughter in law introduced me to Chipotle Peppers in Adobo sauce.


I cooked up a pot of beans and added a couple of chipotle peppers, ground beef and some tomato sauce.

 It was just the right flavor. Kinda smokey, a little bit of heat and full of flavor.

You can bet this is going into my camp meals recipes.
