Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been battling a head cold and have been slow on writing my posts and comments. I hope everyone had a great weekend! Chris and I had a busy one. We went up to Healdsburg Saturday to pick-up our wine shipment and had lunch. It was an all day affair. The drive took longer than both activities combined. Then on Sunday, we hosted brunch at our place. It was a busy weekend and on Sunday evening, I started feeling some sinus congestion and fatigue. I’ve been catching Z’s here and there on the couch and every time I awoke, I felt even more tired and my head felt foggy and dizzy. It was not a good feeling.
In my last post, I mentioned a chili we had with our cornbread. Well, here it is! 🙂
I love this chili! It’s a nice switch up from your beef chili. I always like to include sausages or ham steak (plus bone for flavor) in my pot of chili. I find it gives it texture than just plain old ground meat. Leftovers are fabulous in nachos or chili macs. I used mine for nachos. Sorry! Didn’t get a chance to photograph it. Chris got too hungry and couldn’t wait. 😉
I hate thieves! Last week, I discovered someone had stolen one of my popular posts and used it as their own content on their website, while generating ad revenues with pop-up ads. And that’s not the worst part. The owner of the site pulled in my content using a hidden iframe so people think they’re visiting unihomemaker.com when they’re not. I mean, how often do people actually pay attention to the URL address they click over? I think this all originated from Pinterest. I had to file a DMCA complaint with Pinterest and the thief’s web hosting company out in Germany. Luckily, both parties took action and shut this guy down quickly! Has this happened to anyone before? Care to share your story with me?
It has been chilly here lately so last night I decided to make a big pot of stew. Chris picked up some Angus Beef (stew meat) from Harris Ranch at the market. The first thing I thought was how expensive this stew meat was. But it was totally worth it. It made the best beef stew ever! I didn’t think you can tell the difference but with this meat, you can.
