Hello, all! It's already fall! And it even feels like it here. We are having very low humidity and cool, refreshing overnight temps hovering around 60 degrees. Feels downright chilly!
And to match that fall feel, I came home and put on a pot of chili. I never make it from scratch. Why should I? With Wick Fowler's I get the same perfect, tasty chili every single time. I used to always use his original recipe with ALL the red pepper. But with Pete's stomach problems and children I started using the mild version. Every bit as full and flavorful as the original but without all the heat.
Occasionally I throw a can of Ranch Style beans into it. Every now and then I cook a pot of rice to go with it and bake a pone of cornbread as a side dish. But mostly, we like to keep it all meat and eat it with saltines. Or do what we are tonight, which is to make frito pie's with it. Sometimes I use the leftover and box of macaroni and cheese and make chili mac. I love that stuff!
Well, I'm off to enjoy some it now. And feed the rest of the herd.
