The ONE Meal I NEVER Ruin!
Published on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 by

Today I decided to go with the suggested topic for NaBloPoMo’s day 14.

Tell us about the best meal you ever cooked.”

chocolate chili

So this is the deal.  Before kids, I would spend hours preparing one meal.  I love cooking.  It’s therapeutic, don’t you think?

And then came the kids.  And out went the fancy food.  There is just no time.

However, once in a blue moon I find myself some time and make something fantastic.  I mean FANTASTIC.  The problem is?  My mother is never there the night I prepare it.  For one reason or another, she misses it.

So what do I do?  I recreate it the next night she is at my house.  You see this coming, correct?  The time I make it for my mother, it is a total fail.  It happens EVERY-SINGLE-TIME.  I go on and on about this amazing thing I made and about how I will make it for her.  But does it turn out the second time?  NOOOOOOOOO!

I cannot begin to tell you how many times I have said to her, “But it was SO GOOD before!  HONEST!”

There is ONE thing I haven’t failed yet.  It is THE favorite meal of the family.  My amazing chocolate beer coffee chili I got from Allrecipes.  You will never taste a better chili.  My homemade Italian bread is always on the side.  I just wing that.  And I wing bread GOOD.

Do you make something special that everyone simply LOVES?
