sunday!! love sundays, usually the one day a week where i can get all my shit done. laundry, printing, working on ads, cooking, waiting to be driven to a mystery enclosed space to spray paint. school started and so far, all the courses are amazing. really great profs who actually exist in the working world and are out to inspire and nurture the fire that is under all of our butts! i can’t wait for school to kick into full gear so all my distractions fade away, and oooooh boy, distractions have consumed me.
i’ve been dreaming like crazy. it all seems so real. last night i saw everyone i haven’t seen in years. i threw a chair! everything was way too real, and if i was awake and living it, i probably would’ve thrown 2.
alas, not much cooking has been happening and i MISS IT. above is a black bean and sweet potato chili i made last week which was damn delicious. mostly spiced with chipotles in adobo sauce and some rehydrated guajillos, this was lovely. what made it even better? topping it with some cilantro-lime sour cream. holy fuck! flavour explosion on a spoon, and a wonderful thing to cuddle up to.
chili was a pretty standard creation – soften onions and garlic in a pot. i finely cut up some mushrooms and browned them in hopes to create more flavour. 1 can of tomatoes was pureed and added to the pot, along with the beans and diced sweet potato. added the chipotles, adobo sauce, guajillos pureed in some of the rehydrating liquid. i’m pretty sure there was other stuff but i can’t remember right now. cooked it slowly for about an hour, so the sweet potatoes were cooked but not mushy. YUM!
