Seriously...

where did my mind go? I was all excited to make chili this morning, after starting, I realized that I do not have a can opener (not the first time I've realized it, but I've gone to neighbors before or used a knife and meat mallet (picture that), so I had to put E's shoes back on and head to the store (pfaltzgraaf, which is going out of business by the way), where I got a pretty pink can opener. Headed back home, opened up all the cans of beans that had to go in (most of you know how very much I LOVE beans, I only used half of what the recipe called for), cut up all the veggies, browned all my meat... had it all ready to go, simmering away, just waiting for it to make the house smell all good and spicy, when it dawned on me that we have dinner plans tonight and I won't even be eating the chili! Bummer!

In about 45 minutes I get to head out, get my hair done and then head to Grandville to have dinner with my family for my sister in laws (bobbie's) birthday! Buffalo Wild Wings... YUMMY! It may even beat the chili, I just wish I hadn't wasted so much time making it, we truly dont' have time to eat it in the next few days even. By the time this weekend is over my head WILL be spinning, I promise! More to come later!

And, because you know you all love them (but mostly for Elliot)...

We love Chili too and just made a bunch on Sunday! At least you can freeze it. Have fun tonight, maybe I'll see you at the game tomorrow night.

You can take a bowl of chili over for your dad. He asked for some today! Chili is always good on a good Fall day.....

I hate when I goof up my meal planning! Freezing it will be a nice treat for later though! Kendall loved the wiggles video!
