DON'T EAT THE CHILI!!!
WELL AT LEAST NOT EVERYDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I was a kid I HATED chili. My mom would make it and I would turn up my nose. Mainly I did not like kidney beans, but I have come to learn I just didn't like my mom's chili and therefore would not try other chili. Sorry mom!
Yet mom always made me eat things I did not like and I would pick out every kidney bean in my chili and fill my bowl with crackers trying to drown out the taste of the yucky chili. I detested lima beans even more growing up and I got sick at the kitchen table after being forced to eat them....I think that was more to prove my point that I hated them!
Yet as I have aged I have started to like more things. I decided it was time to try some chili again as it sounded like a great healthy meal that was on the Body for Life program I was following a few years back. I use the leanest of meat, throw in some veggies and let's not forget the hot sauce!!! I always avoid all good things to keep it healthy--no sour cream, no cheese, no crackers!
Over the years I have perfected what I consider to be the best chili and I usually make it a couple times a month now. Friday my hubby and I made a huge pot and I had two bowls as it tasted oh-so-good! Then after Saturday's long run, the easist thing was to heat up another bowl. Then I took what was left to work on Monday and ate chili for lunch Mon, Tues and Wed.
Let's just say my system is PO'd with the amount of chili I have been eating and it is time for a break. WARNING, take my advice...don't eat chili 5 out of 6 days in a row...only bad can come of it!
