Baby it’s cold outside….Chili


Guys I was so excited about my chili I started eating and realized OH SHOOOOOOT. I forgot the picture. I promptly stopped and snapped the picture. I have to tell ya’ll, I loveeeee chili. I could literally sit and eat chili all day long, every single day. Ok, maybe not, but I do love it. Usually I just buy packets of chili seasoning and throw it in with some tomato whatever I got, some beans, and some meat; but I decided this isn’t going to work for me anymore. First off, have ya’ll seen the price of that junk lately? I decided to look at a bunch of recipes and just make my own. This is when I realized chili is the easiest stuff to make ever. You can’t mess it up folks. Seriously!

When I lived at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, we were invited to the battalion cook off at this farm. The kids could come in and they could play on stuff, feed the animals, and so forth. However, the star of the show was the chili. Everyone brought something if they wanted a chance to win the prize. It was all sooooo good. I ate a little bit of everything….except the one’s that used peanut butter. It’s good ya know, but I don’t have a death wish :P!!!I thought it was pretty cool this one guy used dark chocolate in his. It was very rich and he had balanced that richness pretty good. I loved the experience. How cool would it be to have a chili cook off? I’m in!
