National Chili Day

I didn’t even know that there was such a day as National Chili Day.   I received a tweet from one of the Kansas State Troopers that I follow.  He was sitting along Interstate 35 his tweet:

If someone could bring me some chili as I’m parked on I-135 near McPherson, KS looking for #Distracted Driver, that be great  #NationalChiliDay

Sorry to say I didn’t take him any chili, (which I hope I don’t regret when/if he would ever pull me over!) but I did make some for Mr. Farmer’s supper.  It’s a cool, north wind day and that will make for a wonderful supper.

I have a great chili recipe that uses ancho chilis and unsweetened cocoa.  Of course I had to make cinnamon rolls to go along with it.  Now that takes me back to school lunches when the lunch ladies made their own cinnamon rolls to serve with chili.

Happy National Chili Day

      Funny you should ask that question! I will make something that Mr. Farmer really likes and he asks if he will ever have it again. I don’t follow recipes very well. I will start, but go off on my own. Tonights chili has, beef (sometimes I use elk!), onions, garlic, pinto beans, tomatos, ancho chile powder, cumin, unsweetened cocoa, chicken broth or water. I will serve it with roasted Hatch chilies. I get the Hatch chilies from Johnson greenhouse in Wichita every year. They roast them there! So good

      I laughed at the “other” Mr. Farmer. I had thought about how to address that: big or little, young or old, “other” is perfect!
      Busy time for you guys. How many baby calves?
