Project 365: Day 248: Why I Love Chili
Food post! I love making chili. All the prep work involved, having everything meld together in one big pot of deliciousness with all those veggies and all those spices, simmering all through the afternoon and filling up the house with the most amazing smells. I love that every pot is different than the last, but always so satisfying. On Day 248 I tried a slightly different chili, with chicken instead of beef. I also added some potatoes and even a touch of corn and peas to the usual fare (which included kidney beans, celery, tomato paste, onions, garlic, plus lots of peppers, tomatoes, and herbs all from the garden.) A little bit crazy but it turned out awesomely delicious. (Don’t forget a healthy amount of chili powder, cumin and cayenne.) Course cooking it for several hours also helped, I’m sure. I was one happy camper. Sadly, now I’m a sad camper because I don’t have a bowl of delicious goodness in front of me right now. Sigh. Sad. So sad.
