I'm sorry for those I disappointed this evening by not having posted my regular blog earlier. I've been in the office  working on the computer for the farm business  and just finished now.

I didn't accomplished much today but I guess I must have made a great chili because my husband and the hired hand both had two big bowls each and I was told repeatedly how good it was. When I mentioned that I hadn't had time to blog and really had nothing to say, my husband say" Oh talk about your great chili. "

OK, chili it is. I never do something twice the same way because I use what I have on hand. This is what I put in my Chili this afternoon.

Julia's Friday night's chili

1 lb  lean hamburger
1 onion
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2  medium carrots, shredded
1 green pepper, chopped
1 large can red kidney beans
1 can tomato soup
1/2 jar Ragu Original ground beef Spaghetti sauce.
chili powder to taste
Freshly ground pepper

Cook hamburger, add onion, celery, carrots, green pepper and saute until cook. I add just a wee bit of water to help cook the vegetables then add the kidney beans, tomato soup and spaghetti sauce,  salt and pepper, chili and I leave it on very low to  with the cover on to blend the flavor.  I use very little salt because there is always too much salt in the soup and sauce anyway. But it all depends on your taste. JB
