So I've been sitting on this post for like two-and-a-half weeks but it continued to get waylaid, what with the whole election and my ensuing Obama excitement/Prop 8 depression plus the fact that I was finishing up my latest project (be sure to tune into The Millionaire Matchmaker this January on Bravo!) AND trying to get things painted before the holiday, I've been hellabusy. I am sorry.
Anyway, Chili. Now that it's been so long since I made it, I can't remember any amusing little story as to why I did it. I think the weather had gotten cool and I wanted to make something cozy. Of course it's back up into the 80's now and I'm sitting here with all the windows open and a hot bowl of chili doesn't seem that appropriate. But it'll cool down quickly enough again and I'll want to get out my Dutch oven.
