Just get out and do it.

Welcome to my blog, Garden for Your Life! This site will be mostly about my garden, but you can build one just like it in your back yard too. It can be bigger or smaller, just get out and do it. You can do it for fun. Your can do it for your health. You can do it for fresh food in these troubled times. The point is to get out and do it for whatever reason that you need.

Over time I will cover topics like canning and preserving your harvest, soil and beds, bugs, what to plant and when, and much more.

I've been working on this garden on mine and improving on it for over five years now. I will continue doing that for many more. You can too, just get out and do it.

Easy Chili Mac

Time for dinner is getting close.  Lets have Chili Mac tonight!
First get the elbow macaroni on the boil.

Time to get the main ingredients out from the home canned shelf.  Spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce!  The spaghetti sauce is a little thick, that's why I added the tomato sauce.  The Potato rolls from the other day will go great with this!

Next chop up some fresh veggies, carrots and celery.  Add what else that you like.

And into the pot it all goes.  Add salt, pepper, Cholula!, dried garlic, dried onion, and italian spices to taste. A cup of cubed Velveeta Cheese goes good with this too, but I'm out of it tonight.

Stir, heat, and taste!

Yummy!  Dawg lick the bowl approved too!
Chili Mac, its whats for dinner tonight!

Total cook time was about 20 minutes
Enjoy, ken

Need to learn how to shoot? I'll help. Chili Mac? It's easy to make and kids love it to death. Hold the cholula and pepper. Add the velveeta cheese. It took twenty minuets to cook that big pot up. Sure do miss you all at NE but that place is no longer to be.
