This week, I thought I would make some chili. The weather has TOTALLY cooperated with the idea of a big bowl of Black Bean and Pumpkin Chili with Quinoa.

I used several recipes and amalgamated them to suit myself. I made mine with dried black beans and canned pumpkin because I am saving my little pie pumpkin to roast for some lasagna. 

The unboxing is going slowly. Maybe today will be the day I do the linen closet, which will allow me to get to the last two bedrooms, one of which is to become my studio. It will take a fierce investment of time, skill, and cabinetry to accommodate me in the manner to which I have become accustomed.
