Fog Happens and So Does Chili

An acquaintance said yesterday that there can be too much fog, or as a college t-shirt says, "Fog Happens." Often, it seems, in Sewanee.

For more days than I can count, fog has happened. Personally, I love it, and I also love the opportunities it affords for comfort -- tea and scones, a good book and quilt, a long nap, some quiet time spent bookbinding, taking photographs for a neighbor (who refers to me as her "spy"), a good Netflix movie during the day, and making a sustaining dish.

That's what I did: I made chicken white bean chili from an Internet recipe. Sustaining it is, and warm with jalapenos, and pleasing to the eye as well as the palate.
Here's to the fog and the lovely things it inspires.

I haven't made those for years. Thanks for reminding me.
