Tasty Fall Warmth...It's Just so Juicy

Hello beautiful! Such a great day.

You never know what the day will bring, good...bad...indifferent.

Today most unexpected occurred.

I have been seeing a spot of fluid under my van for about a month now. I have taken it to 3 different places, all said everything looks good. Monday  took it in for my regular oil change and they said I needed 3 liters of coolant. Hmm, that does not sound right.

SO back to a mechanic I go.

AAHH I am NOT crazy as I was starting to feel! My radiator was shot. SERIOUSLY!?

OK, I feel better only in the sense I knew there was something not right. With all the driving I do with my job I seriously could have been stranded, so I am glad to be getting it taken care of.

Being homebound lends me to be able to do what I love...get in the test kitchen.

So that is what I did.

I bring you my final for a heart chili that in my opinion by far is my best yet.

We love chili here, especially when the weather turns cold.

I use a GF flour as my darling daughter is gluten intolerant and things just go better for her the less gluten she has.

I find this really is key helping it to stay together after hours of soaking and bathing in all the chili goodness.
