Before I start this, I must confess that my motivations at times can seem a little crazy. With that said, between watching all the "down on the homestead" style cooking shows on Food Network, the dropping temperatures and our upcoming visit to the National Western Stockshow; I'm feeling the need for some cowgirl food. Yes, it all comes back to vittles.
Time to round up my trusty cooking sidekick (my little boy) and get some spicy chili and cornbread going.
Zander's favorite thing, besides the Broncos, is cracking eggs. Weird, I know. So Z man worked on the eggs while I fried up some bacon, which makes EVERYTHING taste better, and chopping veggies. I'll be keeping those jallepeno seeds, thank you very much! I did say I was spicing things up, didn't I?
While I got the chili put together and simmering, my little man started helping out with the cornbread. Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
There's that bacon again! And cheese, we can't forget the cheese. Did you read my last post about the rainbow loom? Zander is sporting a bracelet that he made, in Broncos colors of course! Everything was coming together quite nicely.
Finally, we finished everything up and my chuck wagon lunch was ready. I set out for some yummy cowgirl cooking. I think I succeeded. Yee Haw!
Of course it was delicious. But after reading through my post, maybe I need to get out more...
