Oh to have......

....something to tell you. Something, anything, of import to pass on with words of wit and wisdom, and a little humour thrown in for good measure.

Alas, it's not to be. It's just been an ordinary day, although himself has gone out tonight so I'm enjoying a little peace and quiet. And stuffing my face with what is possibly the best chilli I have ever eaten, courtesy of the wife of a colleague who challenged me to say anything less about it. I couldn't. It was delicious.

Apparently the secret ingredient was chocolate. What more could a girl ask for?


  1. Sometimes an ordinary day is very noteworthy, especially when you can have some time for self and someone else cooked. Sounds like a great day for you! Now about that chocolate chili ..... hmmmm.

  2. Chocolate in chili sounds PERFECTLY delicious. One of my favorite things in the whole world is mole ... a mexican sauce of chiles and chocolate and wonderful spices ... GEEEEEE i haven't had that in ages and ages. Mexican food in Fort Lauderdale is seriously challenged & lacking. "Mexican" food here is really Spanish food, which is a a whole very large pond away.

    A quiet normal day is a gift. We are glad that you enjoyed it.

  3. I was going to say... did it have chocolate in it??

    Chocolate is excellent in chili, but it must be a nice, rich dark chocolate. Just one or two squares will do it. Definitely don't try it with milk chocolate. Totally not the same.

    Will the wife of the colleague share the recipe? Any other secrets? Do tell...

  4. Sounds like an extra-ordinarily wonderful day, after all!

  5. I put Jameson's Irish Whiskey in my chili.

  6. Chocolate in a chili sounds rather interesting indeed :)

  7. I have something for you at my site.
