Victor is off having dinner with friends in Dallas. He’s in Dallas until late Thursday, so I’m doing my annual Chili-Fest. At least this time around I made the chili instead of opening cans. It’s a quick and easy meal and that’s really all I’m looking for this week – quick and easy. No complicated five-pot dinners.

As I have said many times, I hate cooking for myself.  It’s just not fun. I make the mess and then have to clean up the mess. There’s no one to share with. There’s no How was your day or Do you know what your dog did today?!?

I’m cuing up Warren Zevon’s Poor Poor Pitiful Me

And, of course, I have my project.

It’s still a secret.

More on that, later…
