Firstly, and most importantly…
I’M ENGAGED! The awesomest BF ever proposed and now “BF” stands for Best Fiance :D
He proposed on New Years Eve and then I got the ring resized when I got back to Uni. Isn’t it pretty? We aren’t going to get married until after we are done school, but it’s still so exciting!
I haz chili. It is full of nom nom nomz. It is important to this post as it is the Official Comfort Food post for the blog-along-thingy in OT: FGF Insanity on Ravelry. Sadly, my suggestions of a “romantic themed AKA LET’S ALL TALK ABOUT KNITASAUR BEING ENGAGED” topic were overruled :p
Anywho, this is an awesome chili. It was in our slow cooker slowly torturing me all day. They want a recipe, but this is sorta a make-up-as-you-go-along type deal. Stir-fry beef and about a cup of milk in the slow cooker on very low for about an hour. Add in cans of tomato and beans (black and chickpea, in my case) and all sorts of spices (chili powder, garlic, oregano, bouillon cube, just a TOUCH of curry, pepper) and onion. Cook for many many hours. Add in LOTS of corn, some mixed veggies and potatoes and cook some more. Eat as much as you can and refrigerate the rest to continue eating for the rest of the week. Awesome stuff.
