Tonight mom made her amazing chili! I've had some delicious chili, but mom's will always be my favorite! One of these days, if she allows me to, I will have to share the recipe with you. Not sure she would want to give it away though. I'm sure someday she will pass it down to me. We shall see!
Although, in my humble opinion, mom's is the best, I have found some chili recipes that I am very tempted to try.
Chili is certainly a favorite around here, but we have plenty of others!
The chili mac sounds fabulous, and the concept of putting two comfort foods together in the same dish, totally makes perfect sense! But... you can't go wrong with good ol' fashioned mac n' cheese. Personally, my grandmother's was my favorite. Especially, when we had it with her meatloaf, and I promise you this... grandma's meatloaf was THE BEST! Hands down! It cannot be beat!
We think we might have found the recipe, but we aren't totally sure about that. We've been looking for it, since she passed, but we were unsuccessful. However, we found one in our recipe box, that sounds a lot like hers. Fingers crossed! Hopefully, it's the one, because I have seriously been craving it.
These mac n' cheese dishes sound so good!
A couple of nights ago, we had another one of our favorites. Mom, and I cooked together. She did the roast beef in the crock pot. Only hers wasn't Southwestern Crusted, it was just a classic, pull apart roast beef. I did the Au Gratin potatoes -she did help me out a little-, and we both collaborated on the asparagus. We love cooking together, and have decided to try to do that more often. It's a great way for us to bond with each other.
I can't say, I've been cooking every night, or as often as I would like, but I've been doing more of it lately, and the more I do it, the more I really enjoy it.
I've got some great recipes picked out, that I am hoping to get to try.
Can't wait to share whatever I decide to make, with you!
What are your favorite fall/winter comfort foods?
