Niki's Basic Chili Recipe

Brown 1lb of ground beef, drain
Saute 1 chopped onion with some red pepper flakes
Return ground beef to pot and add 1 can of tomato sauce, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 2 cans of beans (I normally use 1 can chili beans and 1 can black beans, but use whatever you have), 1 can of water
Add chili spices such as chili powder and cumin, salt and pepper
Simmer for 20 minutes or so
Serve with oyster crackers or Fritos

11/30 Hello!


Don't mind the frizzy hair. No time for product.

And an outtake from the 11th. I tried to get a photo with Alexis and this was the only one in focus. It looks like she's saying, "Yesss!" I find it hilarious!

9/30 New Coat

new coat

I don't know why she's leaning back like that.

Theory from Manda:
Maybe she was just air guitaring to some tunes in her head.
It happens.

Also note the second binky in her hand.
The only thing better than one binky?
Two binkys.
