Another Monday in the books! I’m excited about tonight for two reasons: bringing back an old tradition and new tv shows!
I’ll start with the tv.
This is a big week for television because so many old shows have their season premieres and new shows have series premieres. Super exciting! First, How I Met Your Mother almost brought me to tears — both good and bad tears (good thinking about James, bad feeling sad for Robin).
Now I’m watching Partners, a new show on CBS and so far so good!
Now for the old tradition. When we were in law school, our favorite way to take a break from the stress of classes, studying, etc, was to make chili and watch football on Sundays. And by make chili, I mean we would make canned chili because that’s all we had time/money for, but still, it was good, and it was a Sunday tradition during football season.
Now, I typically make homemade chili, but we had a few cans left, and I wanted dinner to come together fast, so tonight, that’s what we did — made chili for the Packers game.
I spruced up the chili by adding a sautéed yellow onion, a can of diced tomatoes (drained), and about a teaspoon of each of these spices:
Chili powder (chili P for you Breaking Bad fans), cumin, black pepper and a red pepper garlic blend.
I also added my secret ingredient for making canned chili actually taste delicious — BBQ sauce.
Other highlights to go with dinner?
Trader Joe’s Cornbread
Sam Adams Oktoberfest and Ale Asylum Hopalicious.
Now it’s time to watch the Packers and enjoy the rest of the evening. Hope you had a good one!
