This blog... a compilation of my favorite recipes. They have been collected over several years found in various places: the internet, magazines, and cookbooks to name a few. These recipes are meals that I consider to "feed more than your body". These are meals that I hope nurish the heart and soul of those who eat them. I hope that when you have cleaned your plate, you feel like you have taken part in more than just a meal-that you have taken part in something bigger than yourself and food. Whether it is culture, your local place of living, or the life of the plant or those who share this planet, I hope these meals help your family-and mine-to appreciate that we are more than just beings consuming food; we are all connected. And more than that, I hope that these meals help you remember how fortunate you are and that "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.".

Easy Chili Mac

1 1/2 c uncooked macaroni
1 green pepper
1 onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 t cumin
2 t chili powder
1/2 t salt
1 can beans
1 can diced tomatoes undrained
Cheese for topping

Saute onion and green pepper in olive oil until soften some. Add garlic last minute or two of cooking. Add cumin, chili powder and salt. Saute a minute or two more. Add beans and tomatoes and let simmer while pasta is cooking. Before starting veggies, boil water and cook macaroni according to package directions. Once cooked add to "chili". Top with cheese.

**Note-You can keep the chili and mac separate in case we wanted to use them differently for leftovers.
**Note-I think this is a great recipe for nights when you haven't planned anything and need to use up leftovers. You could easily adapt this recipe for what you have on hand: ground beef, other veggies, etc.
