Jan 30 – This afternoon Judy and Brian had invited some friends, including us, to share Green Chili with them. (Judy corrected me. She said it was Green Chili - not Chili Verde as I had said.) It’s called Green Chili because it’s made with green chili and tomatillos. Also, it is made with chopped pork instead of ground beef. It was different! And, it was delicious!!! Diners each brought the side dishes – Mark brought rice cooker rice, Stephanie brought guacamole, and Barb brought “Buckeyes (peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate!! We took my spinach salad. Judy had also prepared, of all things, Grapefruit Pie!!!

Green Chili and Spinach Salad.

Thanks so much Judy and Brian for a delightful and delicious afternoon!!

The Chili Verde looks scrumptious! So, I'm off to a good Mexican restaurant tonight to fill a void :-)
