After it was finished cooking, I drain it, washed it, and packaged it to freeze. I was able to freeze 12 packages and had enough left to make enchiladas today for lunch. The boys wanted hot dogs but I didn't want to make the chili after dealing with beef all morning. I have gotten so that when I cook meat, I don't particularly want to eat much of it right then.
It's been in the 100s for the past few days and we are under water restrictions. According to the weather channel, it is 96 right now but feels like 105 degrees. I really worry about the young and the elderly folks during this time. They are so vulnerable.
The boys go out in the morning and spend the afternoon inside playing. If they venture outside, it's not for very long. They are drinking lots of kool-aide (sweetened with Splenda.)
I go back to school tomorrow; so, this is my last day of summer vacation. It's been a good summer but I am ready to go back to work.
