Chili con carne

I'm not sure that victim has got the gist of this no repeat February malarky - this time chili con carne was DEMANDED no less.  By next week there will be another hankering, but it'll have to be refused... scoffing all your favourites early in the month can lead to disappointment later - however, it may leave room for some more adventurous dinners.  Saute onion, carrot, celery and garlic - add chopped green and yellow peppers - add mince and chili powder and cumin - season - add chopped mushrooms, chopped fresh tomatoes.  Add tinned chopped tomatoes and simmer, after 20 minutes add tinned kidney beans and simmer again.  Check seasoning and spritz in lime juice at the end.  Serve with brown rice and yogurt.  Victim happily scoffed the treat, and so far is not phased by the rest being packed into the freezer for later (post February).
