Our very own Boy Wonder, reading his mission call letter:
He’s going to the Mexico Cuernavaca mission in January. Doesn’t know a lick of Spanish, but will learn his language by immersion process in 12 weeks at the Mission Training Center.

Recipe: Mom’s Chili Beans
2 medium onions, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, crush and chop
brown onions and garlic in a pan with a tiny bit of olive oil.
1 large can (1 lb., 13 oz.) of Dennison’s** Chili con Carne
2 large cans (1 lb., 13 oz.) of Dennison’s Chili con Carne, no beans
2 small cans (15. oz) of Kidney beans, dark
1 small can (15. oz) of kidney beans, pink
Drain and rinse beans.
1/2 c. packed Brown sugar
1 c. catsup
2 T. prepared mustard (like French’s)
Throw everything in the crock pot and stir. Cover and simmer for at least 4 hours. This is a great recipe for a Crock Pot. Don’t let it bubble — or boil, just let it simmer. (My Crock Pot boils everything on Low, so I set it on Low for an hour and turn it down to Warm for the rest of the time.)
**My mom preferred Dennison’s brand over any other because she said that there was less oil in their recipe.
Chili Beans are great with corn bread or over baked potatoes with extra cheese and chopped onions on top. Oh, and don’t forget the sour cream.
Like Alton Brown says, “I said it was good, not necessarily good for you”.
Clare O’Donohue’s new book… EXCELLENT!!

and no blog is complete without a recent picture of the “little peanut”, Cambria:
This is my current favorite picture of her, until the next one… Having a dead-pan face is so uncharacteristic of her, she is always smiling all over herself. She is precious — and almost 1 year old — my how time really flies!!!
