Today was fun!
Nick, me, Ross, and Jen and our dogs (Maggie, Rosie, and Jackson) went to the Falls Ridge Nature Preserve today to walk around and let the dogs meet each other.
They had so much fun walking around the place, plus, there’s a little waterfall and a short hike that we walked today.
Although the dogs got super muddy and they all jumped in the creek at different times, it was pretty fun to watch them play and run around.
We were there for a little over an hour – it was a fun way to spend the afternoon.
On the way home from the preserve, I snacked on my first Amazing Grass peanut butter bar.
I’ve tried the regular chocolate ones (and love them) and this peanut butter was just as good! It had a great peanut butter flavor – not the fake pb flavor in a lot of bars. I’m sad I only have one more of these!
Once we got settled back in at home and finished giving Maggie a bath, I got started on dinner.
This was the perfect dinner for tonight. The weather turned chilly again once it got dark, so I wanted something warm and comforting for dinner.
I used almost all the baked beans we had with lunch yesterday in the chili. I knew we’d never eat all of them on their own, so I added all but about a cup to the chili mix.
What a great idea! They already had so much flavor from cooking together and sitting in the fridge overnight, so it really tasted like the chili had been cooking for hours.
And nothing beats a big bowl of chili with red onion, avocado, and some tortilla chips :)
15 minutes until How I Met Your Mother!!!
And one more load of laundry to fold…then I’m done for the night.
What’s your favorite chili topping?
