Here's this weeks questions for Four Foods on Friday. By Fun, Crafts and Recipes. If you would like to play along visit there where the questions are posted weekly.

#1. Does your family usually eat meals in the kitchen or somewhere else?

In the kitchen. No TV. That's a rule.

#2. Who usually does the dishes in your house?

I do mostly, my husband will help more on the weekends.

#3. What’s your favorite small appliance or tool in the kitchen? My two slice toaster. I like it for bagels, toast, english muffins, etc. better then the toaster oven.

#4. This one’s for my son. Share a recipe for chili.
I love chili, but never really made it myself. But here's a recipe I found in one of my crockpot cookbooks. It looks so easy I think I'll have to try it.

1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp. salt

1 to 2 tsp. chili powder

2 (16 oz.) cans kidney beans

brown ground beef, drain
fat. In crockpot combine all the ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 3 hours. Remove bay leaf. Makes 6 to 7 servings.
