Chili - the perfect food

Made my first batch of chili this season, with fresh peppers from the garden. It's all simmering in the crock pot and good to go. But how to consume this delectable dish?

- Standalone, with maybe a nice salad on the side?
-as part of loaded nachos (very delicious)?
-chili dogs ( one of my all time favorites)?
-on top of a baked potato (very underrated presentation, but very tasty)
-chili cheese fries anyone?
-on top of a cheeseburger (another underrated usage of chili, the food of the gods)?

I'll figure it out. Another thing that makes chili the best food ever, it only gets better as leftovers!

I wish I was insane

Einstein is famously quoted as saying, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results".

In my career as a homeowner, I have owned 3 homes with pools. In all three cases, said pool has been surrounded by towering (mostly pine) trees. In all three cases, I have struggled to keep the sh-t from the trees out of my pool, with varying degrees of success. IN all three cases, I have sworn to never buy a house with a pool unless the pool is in an open field.

I don't think I'm insane, but I keep doing the same thing over and over even though I don't expect different results.... somehow that seems worse....
