Chili Bread Bowls

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 then on eaçh syllable your çhin has to jut out into the air all punçhy like. Like, çhee-lee. So hard that if you were wearing a toupee, it would probably fall off. But also, your voiçe has to be about two oçtaves higher, resembling that of an infant Monçhiçhi.

Oh, you don’t want to be friends with me in real life? That’s weird.

You know what? I think this çalls for a new episode of HWBSTW? (How Would Bev Say That Word, for those of those of you would have deleted the horror from your life’s memory çard.)

Oh yeah. Me thinks it does.

But first! Here’s the reçipe for this çheelee in bread bowls over on the Tarbelsperns.

aaaaaand çheelee!

p.s. someone learned how to make the elf slipper on the ç, you guys.

    Oh my, you have done it again Bev! Soooo creative. Funny you should mention Soundgarden, My husband is a Soundgarden, Chris Cornell fan! On another note, I have FINALLY started my food blog. Yay!! Please check it out at I'm still learning Wordpress, so the blog looks a little plain jane right now. :)

    That "elf slipper" is called a cedilla (sp/en) or cédille.(fr)... Just wanted to add to the confusion. You're welcome.

    Hahaha YES! I just went back and replied to your comment asking how I found the elf slipper! I'm sorry for what I have started.

    I'm just excited that someone else remembers the Monchichis. I even remember the song..."Monchichi, Monchichi, oh so soft and cuddly." (hangs head) How sad am I?!! LOL :)

    The bread bowl sounds amazing, especially after you top it off with your delicious cheelee(raised eyebrows, high voice, got it) Thanks for sharing!

    Did you know that the sound link for CHILI was in my google READER? I didn't know those types of things could be transported like that. I don't really know anything except that I loved it.

    I have never seen chili in a bread bowl (genius!), nor have I seen so many cedillas in one paragraph. Brava, Bev!
