It is a wet and dreary Autumn day here in Kansas. I was sitting in my Jeep outside the gym and noticed this tree. I liked the way the rain dripping down the windshield created the illusion of paint drips.
Since it was so blah outside I decided to make some chili. There are many reasons I love chili. I love the way it makes my house smell. The garlic, onion, jalapeno and spices all create an amazing scent . I also like to cook chili. I love to chop the vegetables, saute them, then combine the spices and wait for it all to simmer into yummy goodness. There are certain ingredients that I must have in my chili. Garlic, onions and a dash of cocoa are a must in my opinion. Do you have ingredients that make your chili special? I know my friend Megan is going to say cumin. I might post a photo of the bowl before I eat. Unless I forget 🙂
