Two pretty good days

Ran ~4 miles in the neighborhood yesterday and ran/walked Mill Mountain with two coworkers today. School good, work OK. Making a crock pot of veggie chili for a fundraiser at school tomorrow. I'm including the recipe so maybe some of the students will try it when they find it doesn't have that "weird tofu stuff" in it.

Sandra Tee’s Yummy, Healthy Vegetarian Chili

1 28 ounce can crushed or diced tomatoes
1 15 ounce can pinto beans
2 15 ounce cans dark red kidney beans
2 15 ounce cans black beans
1 medium onion coarsely chopped
1 red or green bell pepper coarsely chopped
3 garlic cloves chopped
½ chopped jalapeno pepper
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups water

Combine all ingredients in crock pot. Heat on medium heat 6 – 8 hours. Adjust the amount of chili powder, garlic and jalapeno pepper according to your preference. Check the label on the beans for animal ingredients such as lard, pork fat or natural seasonings. Some beans are labeled as vegetarian but it is reasonably easy to find beans not cooked with meat.
