Help my family with our dinner ideas. Every since Pregnancy III: The Waddling, I have been really grossed out by chipotle and large doses of cumin. Which is a damn shame, especially since my husband loves chili on rainy nights. And I love it because it’s cheap and easy to make on weeknights.
So I suggested, as a compromise, Italian chili. Here’s my idea:
No beans, Texas-style! Onions, garlic, tomatoes, meat, sausage, crushed red pepper, cooked with parmesan rind. At the end, drop some mozz balls and chopped basil. Maybe cream, if we’re feeling nutty.
My husband thinks this is weird and slightly repulsive, like eating a bowl of meat sauce. (He’s willing to try it, though.) But it’s really just chili, no?
Does this sound at all appealing to anyone? Or do I still have pregnant tastes here?
