Wine Snob Confession

I sometimes buy wine just because of the name on the bottle.

I know this is shocking news...
but

I CAN NOT help it !

I must admit it's "hit or miss"
Sometimes you can find some pretty decent wines, and other times, not.

My favorite out of this bunch were Twisted Chardonnay and Purple Cowboy Tenacious Red.

Beer Chili Spaghetti




So, I had some of Dad's Beer Chili in the freezer.

So, I decided to make chili spaghetti which is one of my favorite comfort foods.
I do not know why.

My son isn't a big fan of it.
Mixing chili with spaghetti isn't very italian to him, and he just can't wrap his head around it.

The recipe is simple
Get your favorite pasta and your favorite chili
Cook pasta per the package directions.
Warm up the chili
I always cut up a white onion and throw it in with the chili leaving some for garnish.
 Here I used my new favorite ingredients  listed below
Usually I just grate cheddar cheese and mix in the chili while it's cooking and then garnish with it as well.
Really, you can use anything you wish to make it your own.

Homemade Bread

Doesn't it look pretty on my new Pottery Barn board?

I recently read that apparently the "No Knead Bread" is one of the most blogged about recipes almost to the point that it might be considered lame to post it again.
Well, that's ok because sometimes lame is my middle name.
