Mel Like my cast iron bean pot my Dad left me (RIP) he was from the state of MAINE and would make all types of beans in it.. I think he got it in the 1960's.

I've canned 26 quarts and 4 pints of tomatoes in the last couple weeks. The last 14 had a handful of onions and green peppers in them, too.. Figured I'd save myself a little prep time when making chili.. The chili in the photos looks very much like mine.. Something you can use a fork to eat and sop up the last bit with a couple slabs of home made bread.. I hate chili soup..

That's a new one on me.

I thought it might be.

All through school, and I believe even to this day (I will have to check as my boy just started school last week, don't think they've served chili yet, but he does dig on the "square" pizza), on chili day, you were served up a bowl of chili. Not special or fancy chili like yours, just chili. Think Wendy's chili.

With that, you got 3-4 sticks of that government cheese. 1/2"x1/2"x4" sticks. You could ask for more sticks and they (lunch ladies) would give you 2 more. :p If you got to your table quick enough, you could break up those sticks into little chunks and get them into the chili and it would melt for you, giving you a nice hot bowl of cheesy chili.

But the best part was that on this day, the lunch ladies would bake up these huge 6"x6"x3" tall cinnamon rolls, complete with icing.

When you were finished with the cheesy chili goodness, or rather, when you had about 3-4 spoonfuls left at the bottom of bowl, you'd pull that big sweet roll apart and mop up what was left; wiping the bowl clean. :D

Having traveled a little and mentioning this to others, people would get this look on their face, probably not unlike the one on yours now. :eek:

Mmmm. Man it was good. :icon_thumright:

Soup day was choice of {tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich (yuck)} or chicken noodle with peanut butter sandwich (white bread with creamy gov't peanut butter) Dip it. Umhmm.

I also heard fairly recently on the radio that people not from these parts have never heard of, let alone tried broasted chicken. :eek:

So much sadness in this world.

:dread:

The broasted chicken headquarters is 1/2 mile from my office.

Beloit, WI home of broasted chicken and the town named after the sound of a turd falling into the Rock River.
