Pop Rivet, you're too much! I'm sitting here with my sides aching from laughing! However, now you got the idea!

Devastated

I'm devastated. While you have been laughing, I have been researching. The most trusted cookbook in the world is the Joy of Cooking by the late ( probably from clogged arteries ) Irma S. Rombauer, uses chili

McCormick spices uses the word chili.

And I will always use the word Chili - except when I cross the boarder into New Mexico. Then, and then only, I will use the word chile.

Now, I'm exhausted and am going to mix up some margretias. I shall then dream about New Mexico, the balloon fiesta, Chile and - and

Ha! my spell checker rejected chile - I'm a poor loser.

LOL... But the Joy of Cooking wasn't published in New Mexico and the McCormick spice company is in Baltimore.

I mean... what do they know?

We're looking forward to the rally. Something tells me it will be a lot of fun.

The cook off could be an event for Friday night. Saturday will be the traditional pot luck and who knows what Sunday will bring. Last year we went out for dinner on Sunday because you know who had a birthday.

As long as we do not get to much chili, we should be fine. After the contest we could have a dump like they do at the RMVAC.

If you don't enter the cook off, you can be a judge.

Count me in for the cook off.

Count us in too.

Should there be a limit to the number of entries? I suppose if everyone entered we'd end up with enough chile to feed us all for a month!

dinner options

Not to detract from the Chile discussion, but an option on Friday and Saturday night and I think Sunday day, is the Greek Festival at the Orthodox Church east of downtown in the Huning Highland Neighborhood. It is really quite fun with good Greek food, dancing, baklava and other desserts. Just a tradition like balloon fiesta that first weekend in October.

Greek festival

Some days I feel like a Greek God - Other days I feel like a --- Damned Greek

I like almost anything with lots of garlic and olive oil - Grape leaves stuffed with goat can't be bad.

Well, Sunday is open for an event as 'you know who's' birthday falls outside of our time at the Fiesta this year.

Put me down for a judge spot for the chile cook-off, as I am tentatively scheduled to be working the Fiesta's RV parks, will be solo this year (Cindy spent her vacation days in Oregon this year), and will probably be gone most of the days....but ready for the Margi ball at night!

Hot air balloon

Have any of you ever built a miniature hot air balloon? the ones that use a can of sterno for hot gas? We could probably get into some serious trouble with a half dozen of those

I have not heard that term in a long time, I did my mess cooking duty in the Goat Locker on my ship. The Chiefs at least tipped, the guys in the Weird Room got nothing.

El Morro Monument outside of Grants is a place to visit on way to Albuquerque

In New Mexico, history is etched into El Morro monument

Seven centuries of travelers have left their mark on Inscription Rock, offering personal glimpses into Western history.

To reach it from Albuquerque, you drive 85 miles west on Interstate 40 to Grants, then take New Mexico 53 for 42 miles.

For those of you stopping ovenight in Grants, NM, this was in the LA Times Travel Section today.......In New Mexico, history is etched into El Morro monument - Travel - LATimes.com

Sounds interesting to me. paula

We stopped at El Morro (and El Malpais, too) as we took a round-about tour from Gallup to Grants. Very worthwhile sidetrip, and it gets you off the interstate for a short while.

But back on point, "chile" is how we down here refer to an individual of the rugrat segment of the population from time to time.

So, Pat...........

Are you implying that this 5 letter word being bantered about is used in the mono-syllabic form out your way, rather than the multi-syllabic pronunciation in the SW.....and that it's meaning is totally different??????

INTERESTING!!!!!!!!
