things i heart: tailgating.

"things i heart" is my friday series on the blog.  hope you enjoy!

it's mid-october.  the leaves are really beginning to change (and fall!).  there's a chill in the air.  it's the perfect time for one of my favorite activities: tailgating.  if only i could get invited to the hilfigers' tailgate...

the fictitious family created for tommy hilfiger's fall 2010 ad campaign

 they're all sorts of preppy fabulous

with a little royal tenenbaums feel mixed in

i'd even bring my parents' semi-famous-cook-off-winning-chili recipe to share:
makes 7 cups 

1 1/2 lbs lean ground chuck
1 c. chopped onion
4 t. bottled garlic juice
1/4 c. chili powder
1 t. salt
1 t. oregano
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. thyme
2 drops hot sauce*
1 can (28 oz) whole cooked tomatoes
1 can (15 1/2 oz) kidney beans, drained

1.  Brown meat and onions, drain.
2.  Add the rest of the ingredients and blend.
3.  Continue simmering 3-4 hours.   

spoon into bowls and top with shredded cheddar cheese, 
or spoon over hot dogs off the tailgate grille!

*my dad prefers Frank's Red Hot sauce.  and if you like things a little spicier, definitely add some more!
