This was some of what went into my vegetarian chili today. A couple small onions, a poblano pepper, and several other bell peppers. G cut up an unknown number of garlic cloves. And we tossed in a variety of different kinds of beans – with chopped tomatoes. It cooked all day. The girls and G have the starts of a cold – a cold I suspect they are passing to me.
Besides chili, I made bread. Little known Emmy fact – I LOVE making bread. I will knead it for an hour if I have to do it. The act of kneading – the rhythm, the feeling of the dough as the gluten is worked – is just a nice feeling. The two jobs I always had when I worked at the pizza place in high school and college was making the pizza dough and running the ovens. When I did the pizza dough for the day, I got up early, and spent two hours doing the pizza dough for the day. Just me and my walkman. Good stuff.
DJ made corn bread for the chili – and Indigo and I made kettle corn.
It was kind of the perfect day for it.
For it, and football on TV…..
….and later a viewing of the full version of The Two Towers. (DJ is hooked on it now.)
Not a bad Sunday.
