Its a dreary day here in the city. Rain soaked and wind swept, and what I want to do is spend the day in my pajamas, curled up with a good book. What I need to do is figure out what to do with the remainder of that monster turkey breast taking up space in my fridge. My first instinct would be to make a yummy pot-pie, but the necessary double crust is none too Beachy - so that's out. I'm not a great fan of turkey soup, so that's a no-go as well. I'm thinking chili. What could be more welcoming that a piping hot bowl of spicy, savory chili topped with the sharpest cheddar imaginable and oozing with rivulets of melting sour cream? (Non-fat, of course!)
I think I'm sold! Unfortunately, this will necessitate some hunting and foraging on my part ... which will necessitate a clothing change. While I may be prone to wearing the kitten ears from time to time, I've never shopped in my pjs ... and I'm not about to start now.
While I'm out battling both the crowds and the elements, do peruse this meme that Scarlet tagged me with last week. I'm winging it in terms of creating the chili, so stayed tuned for a full report and the resulting recipe on Monday.

Today's picture was taken at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens, at twilight last Thursday. It was a beautiful evening and the gardens themselves were magnificent. I hope to return in day light sometime.
Now, I'm not sure who will or will not respond - but those were the four names that came to mind. If you're not on the list, feel free to pick a few and answer in the comments. Curious Diva wants to know ... especially as relates to your four favorite places to eat!
