Chili con Carne

Tonight I am making one of my favorite meals, Chili con Carne. When I was growing up, my mother would make chili and serve it with rice. I always loved the aromas that would permeate the kitchen when she made chili. Also, I thought that "carne" meant rice, since chili had, well, its own name. How wrong I was! The word carne is the Spanish word for meat. After I started making my own chili, I stopped serving rice with the dish. I did start adding cheese and sometimes sour cream as a side to the main course. We will probably wash this meal down with a few oat pops. Life agrees with us.
