Chili for dinner!!!

I know, I know … it’s 74 degrees outside right now … but tonight it’s suppose to get down to 45 and I feel like I need to get one more chili meal in before this Texas Summer is upon us … (which seems to be creeping in all to fast, don’t ya think?!)

Chili reminds me of my dad ;). He made the best chili growing up.  When I got married and actually started cooking for myself (a little late, I know! My poor husband … he stomached a LOT of really bad meals!).  I found out then that my daddy’s chili came from a box! hehe.  And you know what, I could care less!!!!  It was still my dad’s chili and I could buy the box at the store and make it just the same way! I still love that!

After not being in Austin too long, Michael found an a.m.a.z.i.n.g place to eat called the Texas Chili Parlor.  The chili there is amazing…I mean really to die for.  There are hunks of steak in there.  It’s great.  Every time!!!  If you like chili and come to Austin, you’ve got to go to the Texas Chili Parlor!!!!  I can’t believe I’ve actually never taken my dad and mom there!!!!  Maybe I can talk them into it this weekend when they come in for a visit.

Enjoy the 45 degrees tonight, Austinites!  I’m not sure we’ll be feeling that again for a while!  And if you want some good, semi-quick chili … go to HEB and buy you a box of Wick Fowler’s Famous All Natural 2 alarm chili kit.  You’ll never regret it!!! 😉
