A Stormy Summer Night, Thinking of Chili

It has been thundering & lightning  here in MD and all I can think of is a warm bowl of my dad's Chili. I know some people think that chili is just for the winter time but nothing else warms my soul on a night like tonight. Of course the air is on full blast in here. lol. All I can think about is the sound of my dad's loud, affectionate voice as he teaches me how to make his yummy chili. I was just a little girl then, so I didn't actually memorize or write down the actual recipe. I have a just of the recipe but not exact. I thought that he would always be around when I needed to ask him how to make things but tomorrow is never promised. My dad passed away when I was 15 years old. Even though it's almost been ten years, it seems like yesterday. It still hurts till this day but when I think of all the memories I have, I can't help but Smile :) So even though I don't have his exact chili recipe, I think if he had the chance to try mine, he would LOVE IT! :)
