It didn't work!

I am annoyed.
 
Fully inspired by the calendar...
 
...and the fact that it is ALMOST September 1...
 
I made a pot of chili last night for dinner.



Chili.
 
Classic autumn fare.
 
Chili.
 
A warm bowl to warm your innards when the nights grown brisk.
 
Chili.
 
Not powerful enough to begin to invoke Fall when the temps are still triple digit and the humidity is make-up melting.
 
I tried, though.
 
Chilly?
 
Nope.
 
Not yet.
 
But I do have a little bit of heartburn now.
 
Sigh.

BECKY said...

Hi Jenny! Gee, what WERE you thinking?? LOL

Wouldn't it be "cool" if our recipes would have an affect on the weather??

noexcuses said...

Looks yummy! I'm counting the days, as well!

Theresa said...

I am ready for it but the weather isn't:) Have a blessed day, HUGS!

Viki said...

Humidity?? I always thought that's why people move to Arizona because it's dry heat with no humidity. I don't want you to be jealous but it's in the 70's here today. Wish I could send some to you.

I am ready for chilly chili nights!

Pondside said...

Definitely cool here in the morning - sweater or light-jacket cool. Then it's duvet-cool at night. Fall is really on the way!

Ms Sparrow said...

Nice try! We're supposed to get up to 100 on Thursday!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Jenny it is still too hot to even think about Chili....sorry it didn't work!

recommendation -- go to Panera. They have the best white chicken chili (and insist on making it available in the summer, despite my emails.)

Ms. A said...

If only! My attempt to coax the weather would have been with hot chocolate and marshmallows, but that wouldn't have worked either. Ugh!

My dear Jenny,
I will eat from your silky, tender, feminine hands any day (smile). It does look mighty gooooooood!!!

Barbara Rosenzweig said...

Thanks for your visit! Started working on women in sports. So far, completed Runner Woman and Golf Woman. Love your idea of Golf Woman returning Golf Man's serve!

I'm looking forward to fall but not ready for summer to end quite yet either. Chili looks yummy!

Judie said...

I can eat chili year round! Night before last, it was very dark and rainy, so I made spaghetti. I make it with Merlot, which gives it a very rich flavor. Hey! I could put it in chili as well!!!

Hah,made me :) makeup melting indeed. I quite frankly have had enough of it. We love soup season. I say, bring it on.

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

It's still in the 90's here. Unheard of in this neck of the woods..

yikes!

Sarah~Magnolia Surprise said...

Love chili -- but only when the weather is cold (which is like for 10 minutes here in TX) and with cornbread!!
Another good use of a crock pot too, once you get the rocks out of it....
: )

Amy said...

Well, it was worth a try, right? And i guess the chili backfired, didn't it? Instead of making the weather any cooler, it made your innards hotter. Cheap trick it played on you!

Your Chili look delicious. I'm looking forward to cool weather so I have an excuse to make a nice hot bowl of chili.

I'm in the mood for fall myself.
