Chili Night

Good morning,

Last night we had an old standby meal which is especially good when it is cold outside.

This is chili with beans, onions, and cheese served on spaghetti as my Mom used to make. 
I chopped onions...
...boiled spaghetti...
...browned hamburger with onions, drained off the grease, added tomato sauce, beans, chili powder, and, the (not so) secret ingredient, a half teaspoon of cinnamon. 
 We added some shredded cheese and enjoyed a tasty meal.
 I also made a batch of bread.  Above is the the bread as it looked when I put it in the oven (with no heat, just the light on) for the first rise...
 ...then into bread pans for the second rise, then baking.

The funny part is that I took it out and we ate some before I took pictures of the finished product so I'm afraid you're left to your imagination for how that looked.  Oh, wait, I have plenty of pictures of bread.  
 
 Here's one now. ;)

If you're interested, my bread recipes are here.

Enjoy!

What's your favorite cold weather meal?
