I was searching through the stacks of paperwork that has to be filed, somehow six months away from home, a long move and getting into a new house has put my paperwork in disarray, not that it was ever really in array to begin with. Is that possible, for something to be in array, I suppose, though I've never heard the term.
Within the depths of my paperwork I found something, my favourite chili recipe, and I'll share it with you now. Although the main purpose of writing it here is so that I have a back up should I ever lose it again.
