Chili deliciousness and what I'm reading this week

What up, lovelies?  

Last night was our favorite night...second day chili night.

Instead of a little piece of bread to soak up the remainder, we did half a serving of Garden of Eatin's Red Hot Tortilla Chips, hot chili pepper cheese (1 oz) and some scallions.  Sooo yummy!  I will be so sad when chili eating season is over.

I was so jealous of my friend being in Kauai yesterday that I put on suntan lotion and pouted.

But enough of that, let's get to...

  1. Cannot wait to see my surprise link! Had a slightly better night's sleep last night. Let's hope that either continues or we get an "out". Happy Friday!

    1. Yeah, I knew you'd like that. But as you said after reading it, you don't want to be the first on a "maiden" voyage. Let him get his blimp landed at least one time.

      This mattress thing is becoming a huge pain in the ass and the amount of universal laughing going on based on the amount of broken links in the chain is more proof we are cursed.

  2. I'm off to work in a few - but taking off at noon so I can drive up to my folks because I'm taking a class tomorrow. Then drive home Sunday just in time for a late start on weekend chores. Woohoo for a long and painful weekend - plus throw in time change for some extra fun and giggles. I am looking forward to seeing my folks, but not the class or the drive.

    1. Enjoy your time with your parents and hopefully it'll make the other stuff better!

  3. I love, love, love JRTs. I got one last year in January. I've had all sorts of dogs..Labs, Great Danes, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Pit Bull, CHow, Dacshunds, Chihuaua, and a few others. But my little JRT is my special one. He has just the right amount of energy. Not too much :) for me and my kids (7 and 9yo). He has sooo much personality, he makes us laugh all the time. And the dog can move like crazy and he does fly lol

    1. They are cute dogs for sure and definitely suited better for a family with kids that can wear out their energy! LOL

  4. Ain't no better chip than those Red Hot Blues!

    1. Those things are AMAZING! Perfect for scooping chili, nachos, etc. So delish!
