When you have to pass over your fabulous pumps only to put on soot and salt covered snow boots every day, wake up and adorn yourself with at least 30 layers of clothing, freeze your face off while refilling the air in your tires a zillion times a week, and despite all of the cute things in your closet you perpetually find yourself feeling like the mayor of frumpville, you just get tired of winter. You want to spit in winters face. You want winter to get dumped for a prettier, thinner season. What? Yeah, just go with it.
These are the times you need to call your girlfriends over, make a giant pot of spicy chili with some pepper jack scones, bust open a bottle of wine and watch the Jersey Shore. You have those days where chopping up hot peppers, wrecking your kitchen, and talking about nail polish and cute outfits is a necessity. You need to laugh and you need to eat, a lot. You need to talk about diets after eating a lot. Sometimes you just need your girls. I'm glad to finally have girls. I needed them, bad.
Lucky for me, my main girl, is not only incredibly beautiful and stylish she's extraordinarily talented. Apart from being the sweetest girl on the planet, having a closet full of cute clothes, sharing a love for white wine, she also happens to be an amazing photographer.
Please please please check out her fabulous blog. You won't regret it.
I'll cut to the chase and tell you, this chili was excellent. Spicy and hearty, you won't even notice it's meat-free. Such great flavors and kick! I won't even bother listing all the ingredients and giving you step by steps, because once again this is from the ever fabulous Joythebaker. The only things I have to say about the chili apart from singing it's praises is that I didn't use veggie stock, I instead used Spicy V8. As for the scones, they were the most fabulous texture, and the cheese melted so beautifully. They soak up the chili in the most magnificent way. However, alone... they were super super bland. So I'd add some more salt for sure... that's my two cents (feel free to keep the change)!
Call up your girls and make this meal, then check out my girl's blog, and swoon over her photos.
