It's Gettin' Chili Here...

I recently was cooking for a crowd at the house, and I dug into the freezer for some prepared chili, put up a few weeks back. I did a quick survey of the freezer, and realized *gasp* there's no way I had enough green chili to last the winter!

While driving to the fabric store, I happened upon a roadside chili stand, swerved across two lanes of traffic, and victoriously brought home a bushel of fragrant roasted goodness! Warning - a bushel of chili is a lot. Like, filled up the sink a lot.
So we start the processing, and packing, and freezing. But this may last me a little while this winter. What summer yummies are you stocking up on for the cold months?

Believe it or not....but CHILIS! Hungarian Wax, to be exact. I have to pull the rest out of the garden this week and dehydrate them. My son hates them frozen...he says they are too mushy :(

That's awesome! I guess spicy food cools us in the summer and warms us in the winter...
