So, funny story…

18 Sep

I was hanging out with my cousin yesterday and we were trying to see when we were both next free so we could get together. We decided that we wanted to do a chili cook-off in a few weekends, so I spent some time last night looking for some delicious-looking chili recipes. I found this great one for Pulled Pork Chili, so I decided that was the one I would use.

You can imagine my surprise when I woke up to a Facebook Invitation for the Chili Cook Off for today. Yikes! There was no way my 7+ hour chili would be ready for when we were trying to get together, so I looked for a different, quick, chili recipe. I found one that sounded almost as delicious as the pulled pork one. Boyfriend and I ran to the grocery store to pick up the necessary ingredients and whipped it up before heading out to Cousin’s house.

We pull up to the house and I notice her car is not in the driveway. We walk up to her boyfriend and he goes, “What’s up?” We’re thinking, “Um, your chili cook off is on Facebook as today. It’s not today, is it?” He went on to let us know that my cousin was on her way back home and that the cook off was really scheduled for October 9. Whoops.

In any case, I made some great Barbecue Chili with Corn today and decided to round it out with an autumn-inspired dessert: Apple Crisp. (On a side note: I’m so excited for fall foods! This is by far my favorite season!)
