Chili Chili Bang Bang (Paleo/Primal)

So, I've been trying out a lot of different chili recipes and this last one I made was a hand written recipe from my mother in law - I have no idea where she got it - but it rocks! Funny thing is - I told the kids we were having chili and they came up with chili chili bang bang - yeah, so we've been watching some old movies and I like the name - just sticks - and they were even singing the little ditty to the chili chili bang bang. Kids are so funny.

Here is the recipe - which I will most likely share with my brother because he hates onions - and there are no onions in this recipe and because it's primal (paleo) there are no beans in it either! 

I also like it because it's not your typical chili recipe. There is no cumin in it and it sort of tastes smokey from the smoked bacon in the recipe - and it also sort of tastes like shoarma meat - maybe from the other spices. 

So, if you are kind of tired of the same old chili and you want to try something different - give this one a go. Or you could even use it in a taco.

I served mine with fried plantains - and it was also very yummy paired with spiced sour cream. Loved it. The leftovers where even yummier - the next day - chili is always the bomb the next day.

Chili Chili Bang Bang
Serves at least 4
This recipe is translated from Dutch, so bear with me ;)

250 grams smoked pork belly, cut in pieces OR 250 grams smoked bacon, cut in pieces.
450-500 grams ground beef/pork mixture
2 small cans tomato puree (but you can add more if you like more saucy)
2 teaspoons sambal
1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
2 tablespoons yellow curry powder
1 red bell pepper, diced fine

Fry up the bacon/pork belly about 10 minutes. Add in the ground beef, tomato puree, spices and bell pepper. Cook everything until meat is cooked through and let it simmer until bell pepper soft.

He he! Yeah our littlies love watching "the flying car movie" too. Ok, I've eaten a few different chili recipes, and your version certainly is different, so now I am eager to give it a try.  ◕‿◕

The Tilted Kiln, St George, Utah... pottery and ceramics!

The Tilted Kiln
215 W St. George Blvd
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00-8:00; Saturday 10:00-6:00

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Making Friends 101

After moving back to the U.S. - there was definitely a readjustment period for me. So, I put time into starting a blog. And then getting myself out there, making friends and getting involved and going places and doing things with the children.

Then when I did that, and I did it successfully, there really was no time to blog about how great St. George is. I have come across a few other mommy bloggers that have attempted to explain just how great this area is, but after a time, everyone kinda stops and it's because we are enjoying the sunshine and the nature and all that this area has to offer that we stop blogging or just don't do it as often.

Recently a good friend, Michelle, that I met shortly after moving here, asked if I would write some blog posts for her on her blog Green Kale and Yams about my recent change has a Vitamix owner. I said, yes.

Now it's time to get the word out, that I have switched over from using a cheap model smoothie maker to an Americ…

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …
