Apparently my mouth thinks it’s still winter. Isn’t it wonderful? So, have you ever had Five-Alarm Chili? Da-hudes. It’s HOT. But I like my face to rain, so I don’t mind. Thing is, Aaron keeps buying bags of corn chips. Like Fritos, ya know. The ones that you plunge into bean dip. He won’t stop. […]
(This giveaway is now closed. The answer to the question though? Friends!) Guess what rhymes with Ree? CHEELEE. Okay not so much. But guess what yesterday was? The release of Ree’s new Holidaaaay coooookboooooook! (said like Oprah) I’ve already licked every page. Thrice. Obviously the book is completely fabulous, filled with crystal clear step-by-step instructions, […]
So the other night I went to a little karaoke shindig for a good friend’s birthday. And as I’m sure you can imagine, it was like an acid trip for me. Constantly on stage with the mic firmly planted in my competitive grip, and my ’90s dramatic ballad ready to spill out of my body […]
Time for çheelee! That’s the way I say çhili. Cheelee. And you have to raise your eyebrows real high like those çreepy çartoony çharaçters in Soundgarden’s old video Blaçk Hole Sun. And the L sound has to be really enunçiated, like to the point where there’s almost spit in the çorners of your mouth. And […]
“Um, this is totally chili,” says Bev to Aaron on the hottest day in all of eternity and then some. “I know, I know. Total accident. I was going for more of a beans and rice type of thing, and adding those chicken sausages you bought the other day, which was a genius move on […]
Oooooo Lawdy, LAWDY what a holiday weekend. I counted my fingers and toes, and from what I can tell, they’re all there. How did you manage? Did you come out alive with all of your limbs as well? Nicely done, chap! (chap?) All right, so do you remember this chili? Well, while I am doing […]
Can I ask you a question? What does it mean when someone “winterizes” something? Is it just checking to make sure the chimney sweep doesn’t have eagles or hobos stuck in it again? Or is it a quick glance at the windows and doors for any slits where evil ice ghosts might slip through at […]
I really need to trim my toenails. OH, HEY. Wow, you’re quiet. How long have you been standing there? Wow. Remember yesterday when I told you about my husband cooking for me all weekend due to an expensive mountain bike purchase? (I’m still coping.) Well, this here chili was another one of his creations. You […]
You’re probably reading the title of this post, rubbing your eyes, re-reading it and thinking, “The girl’s gawn coo-coo. Who eats chili IN AUGUST?” Well hold on now! I need to explain something. For the most part of yesterday, it felt like fall. Delicious, crisp, I-can-go-outside-and-not-die-from-the-heat fall. The temperatures stayed right around 66, steady rain […]
Came home tonight to discover absolutely nothing in the fridge. I’m not kidding you guys, I think I saw a tumble weed blow past the lonely onion. With resources running low and the energy level of a postal stamp, I needed to pull together something creative, quick and tasty. Hello pantry. Canned beans, tomatoes and […]
