Not because I like chili, though I do love it.
But because I have discovered I can put pretty much anything into a chili and Parker will eat it without question.
But offer him any of those ingredients on their own, no way!
Last night’s dinner was a tomato-bean-butternut squash-sweet potato-onion-bell pepper-ground beef chili. And he asked for seconds. Despite all those vegetables.
Had I given him even one of those vegetables on its own? No way!
But last night he never even questioned it.
Clearly I need to experiment with how far I can push this chili thing.
So today’s lunch is more of last night’s chili. Add some more chocolate hummus and salted apple wedges and we’re good.
The chocolate hummus recipe will come next week. And meanwhile, I’m going to perfect an over-the-top veg-rich chili and see what happens. Stay tuned.
