And, in case any of you are interested in a mega-old, mega-wonderful chili recipe here it is, in my Grammy’s words …
Uncle Sid’s Quick Chili
large onion chopped
# or more hamburger
can Campbell Tomatoe soup
T. chili powder
can pinto beans or kidney beans
Brown meat in a little oil – Add chopped onions + garlic
cook slightly – add 1 can soup plus 1 1/2 cans water + seasonings –
Cook some more – add 1 can beans – cook longer.
Can you tell she jotted it down from memory? A bit of this, a bit of that. Cook it, stir it. Done! Oh, and if you’re wondering, Uncle Sid was my Grammy’s brother-in-law. Sweet that although this is definitely my Grammy’s chili that she has always given him credit!
I think I might have to add the zoo to our plans, maybe I can talk Grandma and Nana into coming too, it just sounds like fun.

1) The zoo is also on my wish list! I have also asked for an annual pass to Woodland Park for my birthday, I'm hoping to take Penny at least twice a month during the summer :)2) Leave it to you to always find super awesome Etsy shops. I am in love with this idea! Now to think of what I would want to have transcribed..3) Is the recipe screen printed, or is it actual ink? How exactly does it feel on the cloth? Do you worry about the print to rub or wash away?
I'm not sure how it is printed … I'm guessing a screen print, but I'm not 100%. It doesn't feel funny on the cloth and I'm not anticipating any bleeding issues. It seems colorfast.
Yay! We're going to drive to a little farther one because they have "zebbies" and Jemma loves zebras :)
That's adorable! We're pretty lucky that our zoo is pretty awesome, especially because the two other big zoos are each three hours away.
