Chili in Bread Bowls and Pumpkin Brownies

Leave a comment


Mr. Buteau had the urge to cook today so he made his famous chili. I don’t have a recipe for you but I can tell you it had steak, tomatoes, beans and Italian sausage in it. Good stuff! We served it in bread bowls that I ordered from a Food Supply company and had in the freezer for shortcuts!

They were about a Dollar a piece. Completely yummy!! Cut off the top, hollow out the bowl, fill with chili, shredded cheddar cheese and….



For dessert, my 11 year old daughter whipped up a batch of brownies that I’d seen the recipe for. Just mix together a box of brownie mix and a can of pumpkin.


A lot less fat without eggs and oil! Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes and enjoy!
