Well I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm ready for all of the red eyes, runny noses, itchy throats that Spring time can bring. . . oh, and the warmer weather! So, in honor of hoping that the cold air is moving out I decided to make chili for dinner last night. . . one last time for the season. My family loves chili, when it comes with Fritos, sour cream, and lots of cheddar cheese, that is! The kiddos were starving by the time it was ready, so I served their bowls and let them get started before I was ready to sit down. As I walked to the table, Tristan's eyes were watery and he had just finished gulping down an entire cup of milk. He kept saying, "My mouff is on fiya! My tongue is hot! More mayalk, peeze!" Then TJ started, "Yea, it's really hot Mom and it tastes different!" Then Thomas took a bite..."Whew! Honey, this IS really spicy!" I didn't get it. . .I made it exactly as I always do (Heaven forbid I EVER make anything different in my house)! Then it hit me, I immediately new what I had done:
Oopsie! My bad! I just added 2 TBSP of CAYENNE PEPPER instead of chili powder!!! I feel horrible for torturing my children, because good gracious that was some intense chili!!!
If only it would've been raining like this last night. . . I think we all may have joined in!
