What's Cookin'?

If you happen to be making chili and find that you don't have enough beans and meat to fill 5 tummies... adding cooked rice helps to s-t-r-e-t-c-h out the meal.  I had to do that tonight but called it "faux chili" for dh's benefit so that he'll believe me next time I say we're having chili :).   I put one slice of preserved jalapeno in it for just a slight kick.  The venison I used in lieu of ground beef was so mild that it blended right in. We served it with cornbread from Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix and, quite honestly, youngest dd and I thought it was too gritty/coarse. I found that and Bob's Red Mill Baking Powder at Big Lots today.
