Olive oil
3 cloves of garlic
1 white onion, chopped
desired peppers
3 to 4 cans tomato soup
1-3 carrots, chopped
corn, if desired
1 can pinto beans or 1 cup dried pinto beans*   
1 can garbanzo beans or 1 cup dried garbanzo beans* 
1 can red kidney beans or 1 cup dried red kidney beans* 
​*boil dry beans in water for 30 minutes, then drain​              

Can omit meat and add more assorted beans, if desired.
1 tsp sea salt, freshly ground pepper, ground cumin, coriander,
cayenne pepper, crushed chillies, parsley and chives
½ tsp paprika and Tabasco sauce
2 tbsp. chili powder
can lessen the amount of spices if you don't want spicy chili or
can add more if spicier chili is wanted.

In large pot, heat oil. Cook garlic, onion and for a few minutes. Add
​desired amount of hamburger. Cook until hamburger is nearly brown.
​Stir in tomato soup and ½ the amount of water. Stir in carrots, corn,
​peppers and beans. Add spices.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for a few hours
​before serving. It tastes even better after being refrigerated and
​eaten the next day. Sprinkle cheese on top if desired. Can serve
​with buns, butter and/ salad. Enjoy!

Be careful when using a glass stove-top. Chili will burn. Take chili
​off burner for an hour then return to element and simmer for awhile.
​Keep a close eye on it and stir often. We just bought a new stove,
​so I learned that the hard way.


FOREVER ENDS by Carol Hibbs

A move to another part of the province is Gabrielle's greatest transition. It is a turning point she and her sons desperately need. A new and safe house would be a wonderful change, or so she hopes. The house is haunted, or possessed, or something too evil to even imagine.

Gabrielle isn’t planning on any romances, never mind falling in love with her gorgeous cabin building neighbour, Ryan. Bad things seemed to happen to people she loved. It is impossible to resist Ryan, and lunacy to assist Christina, the young girl that is either trapped somehow in Gabrielle's house, or trapped in someone's world. Her sons, friends, Ryan and his daughter, Tess, helps her to save Christina.
