Now that the cold weather has finally settled in, it is time to get back into the swing of making soups and chili.
Today, I made some great chili. Instead of using beef, I purchased cubed, shoulder pork. I also selected a cheddar biscuit mix. Sometimes, I just buy the ready made kind but I was not that lazy tonight! I did go with a chili mix instead of making the whole thing from scratch. However, there were fresh bay leaves, cilantro, garlic, and onion added. There were a few times I tried soaking dry beans but now matter how long I soak them (even two days) some beans are still hard. So I gave up on dry beans. There must be a secret to that!
The soup was tasty. The cheddar biscuits were awesome. As usual, I always cook for more than one night’s worth of dinner. So no cooking on a Friday night. Yes!
