Crisp evenings turn to snowy days, inspiring warm, homemade meals. That's what I think of when I hear the word Chili.
I remember the day I was introduced to Chili like it was yesterday. I was a senior in high school - at a friends house. The father was making a batch on the stove, filled with hamburger I had to wait another decade before trying this dish for the first time.
Much like the avocado, which I didn't try until 2006, I have been enjoying Chili on occasion ever since.
I am a consumer of other creatives originals. From knitting patterns to recipes. Sometime over the last few months I stumbled on Under a Tin Roof when they were moving from one place to another, and happened to be giving a live property tour on Instagram. I adore everything about this mother/daughter duo. The honesty and openness of sharing their daily life: learning new land, creating a CSA, decorating a home, crafting and creating meals from produce they grew, harvested and stored.
