It's "Chili Day!" and Other Stuff
So today is the big Chili Cook-off that I've been preparing for all week, or what seems like from the mid 1990s until today.
I've made five different white chilis to find the perfect one, but the recipe I've finally chosen is actually an original concoction! Oh, I'm sure there's one out there similar to mine, but, you're LYING, so STOP SAYING THERE'S ANOTHER ONE OUT THERE LIKE IT.
I'm just a little proud that I made up a recipe, that's all.
I can't reveal the recipe yet (I will tomorrow) because someone might read it and steal it before the judging, and then there go my plans to build an international chili company and finally be able to afford a haircut from Nick Arrojo. Here you see Nick touching someone's hair which should be me.
If I had my own chili brand, I would definitely call it:
Because: chili for Jesus AND Indiana!
Someone asked me, "Hey, it's Spring. Isn't it a little weird to be having a chili cook-off in Spring?" I think it is, but we Hoosiers only recently jumped on the whole "Daylight Savings Time" debacle bandwagon, and since we just had to adjust our clocks AGAIN, some of us are confused and think it's Fall we're heading into. That's the only explanation I can come up with, and I'm pretty much right 100%.
So wish me luck! I'll take lots of photos. And sign lots of autographs. And get my own brand of chili. And get my own Food Network Show. And get a GREAT haircut.
Who knew chili would be my answer to everything??
PS: On the off-chance I don't win, I'll be in bed until the next time to set our clocks back an hour.
