Home Sweet Home

So, my second night home in Chicago and I got to enjoy my Aunt Debbie's homemade chili. Thankfully, she made me my own pot of vegetarian chili. :] i was so excited...not only is she a good cook, but it was also my first homemade meal since I left to school in August.  Her recipe is very simple: tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, a little bit of brown sugar (which I had her leave out), celery, onions, chili powder, and 9 different types of beans.

The best thing I like about chili is that you can be SO creative with it...usually when I make it I use the same recipe but add different types of beans (i usually have about 9-10), daikon, carrots, and sometimes other miscellaneous veggies. Needless to say chili is definitely a must have in any vegan cookbook or recipe box. I also enjoyed this with some vegan rolls (which I forgot to take a picture of)

I think we were both back home in Chicago at the same time! Hope you had a wonderful visit. Did you dine at any good vegan restaurants during your stay?
