Thank the lerd above that I do not have a job where I actually have to type anything but short grunts and barks. My S key is stuck, and apparently it's quite a popular letter.
Is this weather getting to anyone else? Too much of a good thing maybe? I'm feeling a bit, meh...frowny, I guess, and I just got shampoo in my eyes, that's no help. Plus my S key as I mentioned. Also, my number 1 monkey is far away and I miss her terribly all of the sudden. Boo. Here she is, shakin' it on the Scottish tundra.
To console myself, I've got some cooking coming up tomorrow and Thursday. Nothing crazily exciting-sounding, but dammit there's a reason that vegetarian chili is such a tired old cliché: it's cheap, perfect for an informal group hang, and it can be awesomely satisfying with the right garnishes. Sometimes it's just the right thing to do.
And right now is being one of those times! Look at that fucking enthusiasm! In the interest of making chili-cooking ever-so-slightly more stimulating, I'm looking forward to trying previously-untested recipes from Herbivoracious:
vegetarian chiliand brown butter cornbread.
UPDATE: What am I talking about? No one's chili recipe is better than mine. I started trying to do Herbivoracious's but then started doing little tweaks until I was basically just making mine (no disrespeck intended, yo). I'll be having that cornbread, though.
