Huh? Was that a Compliment?

Last night I made chili for dinner. We hadn't had it for a long time, so I took extra care in preparing it. It's a simple recipe, but still.

So, Rob is eating his helping and he says, "MAN! This chili is GREAT! What did you do to it?"

I smile and open my mouth to answer but I don't have time because he continues with...

"Oh! It must be that new chili powder we bought."


It couldn't POSSIBLY be the cook. I guess this says something about PAST batches of chili that I've made! :)

Next time maybe you should let him cook! HA HA!

Seriously though, I think he meant it as a compliment to your cooking and you should take it as such.

Happy New Year to you and your family, Chris! :D

Chris said...

Hi Daisy!

Rob actually makes better chili that I do, so I should let him just do it! :)

Not so sure about the compliment, but he knows I like it when he teases me, so all is well. :)

And if HE had a blog, the VERY FIRST story he would tell about me would be the first time I tried to make him pancakes. Oh, it is a sad sad story. Not sure he had any hope at all of me being able to cook after that! :) Oh, and after the CRUNCHY cabbage rolls I served once. :) He gets a lot of enjoyment out of my cooking disasters. :)

Happy New Year's Eve to you too!!!

HAHAHA! Men just don't get it. You want them to just keep their mouth close just once and just enjoy the food before them.

Teheheehe! But seriously, this sounds like something my hubby would say!

ummmm .. . "you gots any more of dat goody chili, Speedy luvs him some chili"

I am EMBARRESED to say this, but I think I upset everyone that cooks bt dowsing my food with hot sauce. I love hot food - and chili is one of my all time favorites.

You should have seen the look on Grams face when I poured tobasco all over her Thanksgiving dinner!

HA HAAAAAAAAAA !!!!!!!!!!!!!

She bite down on her tongue I think.

I meant no harm - I just like hot stuff. Speaking of HOT, my date tonight for the GALA Hollydale New Years Party is Juice Newton. She promised me three live songs and a french kiss at Midnight.


I just hope I do not pass out from being a nervous wreck. I have only kissed 4 other celebs on the D list.

Pat Benetar has bad brefphs :-)

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and the family Chris. Will you be frenching with the hubby tonight??

HA HAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!! ((sorry))

I am all whacky today. Give me some time off from work and I go into happiness overload.

Wait till you see the baby new year

Chris said...

Hey Speedy!

YES! We have more chili. :) We even have some hot sauce. So, you can help yourself and add all the heat you want!

I had to google Juice Newton. I thought you were making up that name! :) But, no, there she was! I am sure she is looking forward to her kiss. Ahem. But, she doesn't look like the type to want any hot sauce with that!

No comment on your last question. :) And no, I do NOT think you are sorry! You LIKE to be a tad shocking and funny! HA!

Can't wait to see the baby New Year!

Great to see you so happy!!! :)

Chris said...

Hey Bibi!

I passed along your comment to Rob. He smiled. :)

I think you are RIGHT! :)

ALF said...

Ohhh - chili sounds so good. Nevermind him, men don't know what they're talking about most of the time anyway.

Christen said...

ALF! You are RIGHT! :)

I have had my fair share of cooking disasters, but still. :) He's not supposed to REMEMBER those! :)

Speedcat Hollydale said...

I'm over for MORE chili ... were is everyone??

Hmmmm - I wonder if anyone will notice if I look in the fridge?

OOOHHHH look, Plum pudding!

Christen said...

Hey Speedy!

Of COURSE we saved you some chili! It's right next to the hot sauce. :)

Just keep your mitts off of the cocktail meatballs! Those are MINE. hee hee

You are being WATCHED!

And, btw, if you REALLY think you can sneak in our house past the TWO collies, ONE foster sheltie, and ONE temperamental golden retriever, guess again! I am pretty sure they would guard the fridge (ie, cheese holder) with their lives! :) They'd lead you right to the good silver, though! :)
