Pre: Vegetarian Chili and Cornbread

Happy Fall, Everyone!

With the recent drop in temperatures (and the rather dreary weather today, in particular), it’s really started to feel like fall, and has put me in the mood for soup. Chili happened to be a featured recipe on the front page of AllRecipes.com today, so that really sealed the deal. Naomi used to make a pretty mean vegetarian chili, and she gave her stamp of approval to this recipe I found, with a couple suggested tweaks, so I’m excited! The chili (optionally topped with sour cream, cheese, and/or onion) will be served with corn bread and/or baguette as you desire.

I’m planning on tripling the recipe, just to be on the safe side (since 20 people are assigned ingredients, with potentially up to four more if any non-regulars show up), so we’re virtually guaranteed to have left-overs (potentially a hilarious amount of left-overs), so bring a tupperware-type container if you want to bring some chili home.

Dinner will be at my (David’s) place, and we’ll be meeting at the normal time (“7 PM”). Feel free to call, email, or text if you have questions.
