Parenting analogy of the weekend: Starting out as a parent is kind of like making chili for the first time. Everyone wants to share “the best” recipe with you, but you just kind of have to throw what you have together (resources/philosophy/meat/beans), let it simmer and adjust to your own taste.
I mean, not that your white bean lamb chili isn’t uh-maz-ing, but I’ll just have it when I come over to your house. OK?
Joe likes to riff on the America’s Test Kitchen recipe. Normally we have it with chicken, but this weekend it was stew meat. Simple. Spicy.
