I am so blessed to be in touch with several of my high school girlfriends. Brian is out of town hunting this weekend (yes, I am worrying to death about him), so my girlfriends are coming to the rescue. Girls Night In! More fun than girls night out..... This is the guys dressed in their hunting gear. They kept saying they wouldn't show up in the photo since they are in camo.... BOYS!!!!
Mendy was kind enough to invite me over to her house for dinner on Wed night. Her family is just adorable and we had a lot of laughs as usual! Susan and Robin joined us and it was a mini-girl/family night!
I just got finished making cookies (not so healthy ones too) and portabello chili for our feast. Everyone will bring something, games will be played and fun and laughs will be had!
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 large cloves of garlic, minced
8 oz. portabella mushrooms, cleaned and coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 (35 oz) can of tomatoes undrained and coarsely chopped
1 (15 oz) can of kidney beans, drained in a large saucepan
Heat oil over medium high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until onions are translucent.
Add mushrooms and cook until soft.
Add the cumin, chili powder, tomatoes, beans and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and let simmer for 1 hour. Serve immediately.
