I also serve my chili over rice.  I like noodles and rice, I like the rice noodles especially.

We have a couple coming in October from France and I'm mulling what to serve them for dinner.  For sure we'll go to Fox Bros for Q.  I'll grill some good steaks.  And probably have chili over rice.  Grits for breakfast.  I do an egg over light and add it to the grits.  Steelhead trout grilled.  Mexican from somewhere, I am getting to like the local place a lot, Willy's.  We're going to Highlands, NC for a night, I know a good place there, and Dahlonega for a night to take them panning for gold.

The leaves should be near peak.

Carbs are just sugar linked up into a long chain.  Carbo-hydrate, carbon and water, courtesy of plants.  Fascinating process, nearly all of any plant comes from just water and part of air.  And the sun.

If'n I'm makin' Frito pie, I'll put the chili over Fritos.

Usually I have some cornbread or saltine crackers on the side, and might crunch up a little of that into a bite of chili.

I don't typically add hot sauces into chili, because it changes the flavor profile.  If I want spicy chili, I do it via the selection of chile peppers I use in the blend.

I was using straight spaghetti sauce from last night, so I added the Frank's.  I still have the unaltered sauce for dinner if we choose.

Ah, okay.  I thought you'd made chili.

I probably wouldn't dress a bowl of spaghetti with shredded cheddar cheese and onions, but to each his own.

It's tough for me to get into the idea of chili when it's 103 degrees outside.  I'm sure I'll make a big batch of Texas red when the first cold snap hits, typically early-mid October.

Yeah, it is more of a cool weather meal, I agree, but we have AC here.

My bill last month hit $170 for electric but part of that was due to the building evaporator going on the fritz. a fan blade broke off.  It took nearly a week to replace it.  We went on vacation.

My electric bill is leveled from month to month so I only have a faint idea of what it WOULD be in the summer months.    I have a 3800 sqft house, two stories, two A/C units, and it's regularly over 100 outside.  That math doesn't work out well for me...

I keep it 78 inside when I work from home alone all day, but during the summer the kids are home and my i s c & a aggie wife tends to be around more too, so it goes down to 76.  I don't really mind the heat, but my wallet does...

Our bills in summer in Cincy would surpass $400, same in winter including NG.  We don't have NG here in the condo.  The building has a hot water heater on the roof that is NG and we get "free" hot water, but it takes a while to get here.  I've been very pleased with the low cost of power here, it averages $100.

But if the building evaporator throws a fan blade, no AC.
