a quick hi, hi! we recently returned from our first trip with bebe amesy and it was eventful to say the least. we took a long weekend to see my brother, sister-in-law, and meet our 5-month-old nephew, nico :) our intention was to get the little cuzzies together and have fun in california since we hadn't seen them in quite some time. we were able to get a couple of breakfasts together, and some chill time at my brother's house to have the babes hang with each other, which i'm super grateful for. but it essentially turned into our sweet, chill baby not being his happy, content self, and ultimately coming down with a cold. baby colds are a whole different animal. it's quite scary to watch our teeny guy cough and sneeze the way that us large humans do given his little body. so with all with coughs, sneezes, snot-sucking, steam showers, and general guilt and worry, i'm happy to have our family home.
this brings me to this chili pot. it's warm, plentiful, nourishing - all the things that are needed this time of year. there are some belly warming spices like cumin, and chili powder, some cocoa powder for a bit of depth; and a cool, tart cilantro yogurt sauce to balance all the heartiness. plus it's makes leftovers which is so essential with a sick babe. i hope you all are finding warmth and comfort this week especially. big hugs! xo
