Another lamentable lapse…

Hello again dear reader, well, if you exist, I apologize for my long gap between posts, Late summer and fall became a whirlwind for both work and personal life. But, I think I am over the hump. Sort of. I head out on travels again next week but then I stay put until Christmas and hopefully I will get back onto a more even keel!

In the meantime, I leave you with my sister’s delicious bean-less chili recipe. I highly recommend whipping up a batch of corn bread muffins to go with it!
