    Dilemma with the weather

    The wife and I specifically chose a November game to cook the main course for our tailgate group because we wanted to make a big pot of chili. Now that the weather is going to be in freaking 70's we are kind of stuck without a backup plan.

    So do we still make the chili or do we scramble to come up with something else?

    it's still going to be cold early on, like before 9am. plus, is there ever a bad time to eat chilli? I'll sit by the pool in the middle of summer with a margarita in one hand and a bowl of chili in the other!!

    Just make a smaller batch if you're really worried.
    Throw in some good hot dogs,buns and cheese.That way people can eat it as chili
    cheese dogs.

In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Re: Dilemma with the weather

    Let me think back to a few repetitive facts.

    This is iowa.
    It is november.
    This weekend will be very unusually warm.

    So next weekend will be very cold.
    Mark it down

    Have my grocery list done to run up today and get the stuff for chili too. Was going to back out due to the nice weather and decided not too. We have some guests from Sioux City that are joining us and they are bringing smoked ribs...yummy!!!!

    Re: Dilemma with the weather

    Chili and Chilly are two seperate words. Also Chile is not the same either.

    it doesn't have to be cold to make it - as long as you make way to much and you go easy on the beans.

    Chili on a 70 degree day will be just fine. Now if it were in the 80's I might have second thoughts.

    As long as you have beer to go with it, and put in lots of peppers and garlic, you'll be fine. As long as these factors are present, chili can be consumed in any weather.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Dilemma with the weather

    I will defer to the wisdom of the board and go with the chili. I will begin slicing 3lbs. of top round and 2 lbs. of pork loin into cubes around 4 this afternoon - a 3.5 gallon pot of goodness will be simmering by 6!
