A regular feast
My attempt at good home cooking improved a little last night.

I made a big batch of chili a while ago. It has a few extras in it, (like a bottle of real ale for example) and I thought it came out okay. It wasn't particularly hot - I was a little cautious with the chilies! It was a big enough batch that I split it up into portions and froze them. Yesterday I remembered to take one out of the freezer in the morning so it was defrosted by the time I got home last night.

Last time I had chili I didn't cook enough rice. Last night I cooked enough for two! I would have sworn that last time I cooked a "cup" of rice. I'm not sure how 1 1/4 cups could have been so much more! Still... too much rice is much better than not enough.

As it wasn't very hot last time I added a little paprika and tabasco - that gave it a nice kick. I was going to wash it down with a nice bottle of ale... but I remembered I needed to bring one home with me just as I was looking for one in the cupboard. I toyed with the idea of opening a bottle of wine but that way lies danger... so I had a nice cup of tea instead.

There are a couple more portions still in the freezer... I just have to remember to take one out occasionally!
