Confession time....I was little worried if Murphette was going to pay her rent of $200 a month. Like yesterday she went down to Courd' Alene did some shopping as she was showing me all the items she got.
Nice items but I started to wonder if she spent all of her money before she paid her bills. Well I guess not I just got the rent check.
I told her if she move out before the end of the month I would prorate it back to her.
Murphy is coming down with some type of crud. The reason I know he is moaning a groaning. Men at times are such babies.
We talk about going fishing but at this point I don't see it in the cards.
Our Sunday was a day for me. I just love staying home and doing things around here. I made a batch of ChilliChunky Pumpkin Chili
Original recipe makes 8 servings
2 pounds ground beef
1 large onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 (15 ounce) cans kidney beans, drained
1 (46 fluid ounce) can tomato juice
1 (28 ounce) can peeled and diced tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon chili powder
In a large pot over medium heat, cook beef until brown; drain. Stir in onion and bell pepper and cook 5 minutes. Stir in beans, tomato juice, diced tomatoes and pumpkin puree. Season with pumpkin pie spice, and chili powder. Simmer 1 hour.
The mixture of chili and pumpkin-pie spice is pretty good together.
Left over squash I made up come custard.
I been checking out the flower beds and lot of bulbs are showing though. I can pretty much figure what every thing is....except for one and it looks like a bean coming up. I know I didn't plant any beans in flower garden. Way to cold to grow any beans now.
I went and rake up wood chips from the area we chopped our firewood.
Murphy been weeding the strawberries and we want to add some pream which kills young weeds but not the items you want.
I picked up some doggy poop around the side of house but the ground is pretty wet here. Quite windy one get chilled fairly quickly.
Then the usual house work went on today.
Coffee is on.
