A couple of weeks ago my daughter Anna attended a progressive dinner party with her Young Women’s group. She came home RAVING about the amazing Chicken Chili she had been served at one of the homes. “You should try it, Mom.” said she. “It was totally like the yummy creamy chili that you make, Mom…but way better.”
To this, I could only reply with…”How wonderful! Where can I get my hands on the recipe?”
Please take notice that I have grown a super thick skin since becoming a mother some 18+ years ago and have come to terms with not letting my feelings get hurt about inconsequential things like chili. This kind of practice has served me well. At least it does when I can make it happen. 🙂
The other day one of my twin boys told me “Mom, I just hate it when you have that hair-do that’s all wet and curly. Ooooo. I hate it.”
“Hmm. Oh, yeah?” I said. “You mean the hairdo I have for like 15 minutes right after I get out of the shower, before I blow dry my hair?”
“YES! That’s the one. Man, I really hate it. Please don’t go outside with your hair like that. Like, ever. Ok, Mom?”
And I could only be grateful, really and oh, so, thankful that this wise 9-year-old boy of mine would make me aware of a potentially embarrassing experience.
Kids, ladies and gentlemen. They can really toughen a person up, am I right!
You will be happy to know, that I made the creamy chili recipe my daughter was served at her progressive dinner. And guess what. It is totally amazing. I love that it makes use of leftover rice (which I had an abundance of), has a great combination of flavors and is super creamy. It was so amazing that I snapped a few photos of the finished product and brought the recipe to share with you all today.
The recipe comes from my cute friend Brooklyn who actually has her very own food and craft blog, Cook and Craft Me Crazy. She’s got some darling and delicious things over there. Click over and show her some love, won’t you. She’s an amazing girl, indeed.
