    Pom, That chili and cornbread sounds GOOD to me! It's a chilly (no pun intended) day down here in NC. Some hot chili would hit the spot and when I make it, I also bake cornbread--sounds like a Southern meal to me

    LH and Kay - help yourselves. There's plenty to go around.

    Believe it or not, I never had chili or fried chicken until I was married and moved away from home. I grew up in a New England Italian family, and that was just something my mother or other relatives ever cooked. Of course the fast food places like KFC, Mexican, Chinese, etc, were non existent back in those dark ages too. We ate a lot of Italian, seafood, and good old roast beef, pork chops, roast chicken and roast lamb. And I never heard of a taco either, and can even remember the name of the taco joint in CA where I had my first - Tico Taco!

    Yikes - am I dating myself, or what??? I'd better go get my cane and wrap up in my shawl and spend the rest of my day in the old rocking chair.

    How funny! Chilli and cornbread would really hit the spot! Just nippy enough for it to taste extra good!

    And I'll get the kettle on for some tea later ....

    Inspired by the last chili talk I made my own and happen to have that thawing for lunch today. Made a big pot and put it into small one meal containers. Everyone enjoy their chili!

    It doesn't really go with Chili, but does anyone want any applesauce? Just made a batch, and have some left over, too much to toss, not enough to can.

    I hate that middle ground.

    It is just about lunch time here in good 'ol so. cal. but the temperature says "in the 80's"...........so chili is out - but I would love some homemade applesauce. I haven't had that for a long time. What kind of apples do you use, Ladie'sslave" - ooops "human".............

    Hey - your "baby" brother is a year older today pomtzu.

    "Baby brother" - now that really is very funny

    Normally a mix of Cortlands and Empires, but we got to the orchard late this year, and the crop was lousy, so just empires, which means we have to add more sugar than we normally would.

    Funny thing is that the applesauce we make and can at home has no preservatives in it ( potassium benzoate being frowned on for home use, ), yet it lasts longer in the fridge than the commercial stuff that's loaded with preservatives.

    Nope, it isn't the same color as Motts', but it tastes better.

    The whole house smells like apple butter tinged with wood smoke.

    I love fall.

    Wrong LH - I can eat applesauce with just about anything! I often serve it for dinner in place of a 2nd veggie. If gini didn't eat it all, I could sure go for a big helping of it right about now.....

    There's plenty left, don't worry about it.

    THe kids could eat applesauce with anything as well, though I prefer it with pork chops or roasts, or with ice cream and cake. (one of the few boxed items allowed in the house, Pillsbury cinnamon streusel quickbread...makes a great dessert with applecause and ice cream)

    I love apples and that sounds delish - I must try it.

    I had a few apples in the fridge that weren't really crispy like I like for eating, so on Sunday I sliced them up and tossed them with brown sugar, cinnamon and butter - put them in a casserole dish and popped them in the oven to cook while the scalloped potatoes were cooking. It was like having apple pie without the crust! Yummy...

    How about an apple-tini with some of the quickbread while we await our fate?

    Happy birthday, Barkeep!
