So, a balmy 25 F. out there, snow starting to get crunchy, packed down on the streets, but the wind chill is all the way up to 11 degrees F. Practically summer.
A pot of chili is on the stove. Pretty much my standard brew, though I used a spicy ground chicken for the meat this time, and small red instead of kidney beans. Usual other stuff -- garlic, peppers, onion, diced tomatoes, and all the spices that you see in the picture.
Needs to simmer for a couple-three more hours.
