Simple Sunday afternoon and it was cold & breezy along the lake and it was time for some hot soup! My wife didn't go shopping for anything in particular so, she used what we had in the pantry. She made a 4 bean soup(kidney, black, cannellini, navy) with veggies(celery, carrots, kale, onion) with elbow macaroni and diced chicken(not eating red meats). It was brisk out in the a.m., then warmed up in the early afternoon but turned cold/brisk again in the p.m. I worked outside most of the morning to the late afternoon and my sinuses were now killing me. My head felt like it was full of ice cubes. It was good to take a hot shower and enjoy several hot bowls of this bean soup and watch football. Man, was I FULL!

We just had home made black bean and kidney bean chilli. So modest and simple but with the right spice blend it is so so tasty. Yesterday I added a little cheese and raw onions to it. Today I added crushed tortilla chips. Went very well with beer! And guess what? Both Black & Kidney beans must be good for you because they contain moly! Seriously! http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=2 http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=87

There is one more thing added to that winning combination that is better... the Bills winning.

And a stiff drink for drinking! Maybe several! Then a relaxing country drive! LOL

A little over 100 F here yesterday, and a little breezy. I feel like eating ice cubes for dinner, but that bean soup does sound really good.
