Louisiana is being weird right now. Even though we are almost halfway through November, it's still running about 70 degrees and higher outside.
I'm beyond ready for cooler temperatures because my favorite things happen once it gets cold outside. For example: unlimited hot chocolate and tea breaks, crackling fire in the fireplace (even though the downdraft fills our house with smoke momentarily), AND not leaving my house for days on end.
Another favorite thing is warm and cozy comfort foods, like soup, gumbo, and casseroles...and Chili...and Chili Mac.
So in direct violation of my imaginary food/weather code, I made Chili Mac for dinner even though it was 80 degrees outside and it was glorious. I threw some stuff together and it was delish!
Easy Cheesy Chili Mac
1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 can of chili
1 can of Ranch Style Beans
1 can of corn, drained
1 lb elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
1 lb Velvetta Cheese, cubed
Combine all the ingredients and heat through. That's it!
My kids were big fans of this and even requested the leftovers for lunch (and dinner) the next day. I was cool with that because, for some reason, when I don't have to cook dinner for the kids, I forgo the dinner thing completely, make hubby a sandwich, and I eat cereal.
