    Since this weather has to be a joke... Friday OT thread

    What is your favorite "cold weather" food? Chili and cornbread? Beef stew? Oatmeal? Chicken noodle soup? Pot roast?

    (Sorry, guys, this one is a bit weak. I didn't get a ton of time to think about it.)

    There is something about coming home after a cold day and the whole house smelling like chili. It's delightful.

    Cold weather food's gotta be chili, no cornbread though, the hotter the better, I like mine with shredded cheese, jalapenos and a dollop of sour cream.

    I refuse to discuss cold weather any more. I'm just going to close my eyes and make it all disappear.

    No cornbread?! Man invented cornbread for 2 reasons:

    1) Chili
    2) Honey

    When I was a kid my mom would fry up a couple lbs of bacon (big family) and then along with the cornbread and bacon there would be a large cup of hot bacon grease to pour on your cornbread. YUMMY

    Agreed. I always add a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to my chili. It adds color and a little bit of that smokey taste to it. The longer you leave them in, the hotter it gets. And the best way to thicken chili? Probably masa. But, who keeps masa? An alternative is to crush up half a cup of tortilla chips, really fine, and stir them in. Same principle. Also, and I cannot stress this enough, NO beans. If you're putting beans in your chili, you don't love America.

    ???? That's why they are called chili beans. Because they belong in chili. Don't deny them their birthright.
