The problem with feeling so tired all the time is it becomes an easy excuse and a default action. So much easier to watch TV all night long than to write a blog post and edit photos, but suddenly you realise it has been weeks and you have done nothing but the very basics. I’ve lazed around for long enough it’s time to really force myself to do something.
In my last post I was talking about simple comfort autumnal food like Spaghetti Bolognese. While it’s not very sexy to talk about as a foodie, Spag Bol is a dish that I always come back to and make over and over again. Chilli Con Carne is another such dish.
My version of Chilli Con Carne doesn’t really come from a recipe book or website, it’s just something that has evolved from the way my Dad made it. Like the Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe this starts with basic mince. The time consuming bit is slowly cooking the mince, but this can be made in huge quantities and frozen or refrigerated, meaning you can make quick week night meals.
