On My Hearth: Weight Watchin' Wednesday

This was supposed to be Saturday's dinner but I'm in the mood for it today! *grin* It's still a bit dreary and rainy here so I'll appreciate coming home from work to a nice bowl of hearty, healthy chili and the aforementioned black bean brownies from a fabulous new-to-me blog, Cheap Healthy Good. Yummy!

Yum! I make something similar, but throw in a pack of the corn we froze from the farm market, and use pinto beans instead of kidneys.
