A chat with Wendell

I'm going to join in again with Everyday Ruralty's Chats on the Porch.  Our usual hostess Patrice is taking a little break and has handed off responsibility to her handsome and charming friend, Wendell the horse. 

Here are the questions this week.

  1. What's your favorite kind of chili?
I happen to think I make the best chili.  Nothing fancy, but lots of meat, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms and spicy.  And then add a little more spice :)

2.   What do you usually do when you feel a cold coming on?

I thought I was coming down with a cold last night.  I made tea with honey and went to bed early.  I don't really have any special home-style remedy but if you have any - let me know.

3.   Rice, potatoes, or pasta?

Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes - any way

4.   What kind of camera do you use?

I use a Canon Rebel SLR.  I'm dreaming of added a wide angle lens this year.

5.  Are you a night owl or an early bird?

I've always been a night owl.  However, as I get older I do appreciate the quiet of early mornings.


  1. Wow I didn't know you had a SLR Cool!! I like that you like potatoes.
    I could eat them all of the time.
    I wish you were here to cook dinner. I am supposed to be doing that instead of being on the computer. :)

  2. Spice and honey...sounds like a winning combination for fighting anything that lays you low.

  4. Love spicy chili, and I think that tea and honey and plenty of rest is a good way to fight off a cold. Have a good day.

  5. I make a good chili mole. I don't really like it too spicy...or I'm up all night!

  6. So, you're gonna make us all chili and potatoes, right? ;)

    I hope your oncoming illness was just a trick and you're not really getting sick. Although around here my husband swears by any kind of citrus juice with vodka. You know, vitamin C to fend off germs, and if that doesn't work then the alcohol kills them. Heehee!

  7. Oooh, that starch preference is a tough one! Hope you warded off the cold!

  8. My chili (soup) with macaroni Italian chopped tomatoes hamburger kidney beans shrooms tomato sauce.
    Cold...this last time I took 2 tblsp cider vinegar and 2 tbsp honey in warmer water and drank three times a day. The sore rasp went away in two days! Cool!
    Rice, taters or pasta?...YES YES and YES!!!
    The cheaper one hubby says is good and takes vieo with sound. Works for me ;-)
    Both. Generally a night-owl.
    Oh and I am right handed and love chocolate ;-) Do we win ah prize? LOL! My humor has spoken...sorry.

  9. I keep thinking that I might get a SLR when the grandbaby gets here!

  10. Mushrooms in chili, now that's a first for me. Of course, we are all allergic to mushrooms so we won't be adding those. This is okay, too cause none ofus like them,either. Still I found it a bit interesting. I really want a digital SLR!

  11. Hi Kim,Let me say Oranges. In the winter I eat alot more oranges to keep a cold away. I made chili a couple days ago it was good.Have a good week. I have a cannon powershot and it's better then my last cannon so I am happy. Cheri

  12. I had just made chili myself....SO good when it is cold isn't it? Have a great day!

  13. Nice to find out more about you! I would give you my cold remedy but I don't have one and since I haven't had a cold in years maybe I don't need one...I would think that spicy chili would clear out the nasal passages! Hope you don't get a cold and the honey has worked it's magic!

  14. I'm a pasta girl myself, but also I never pass up a good potato. What does that say about me? Love reading all your answers.

  15. I never made it to Patrice's Porch chat but I'll post some of my answers here.

    I love hot flavorful Chili with lots of vegetables and red kidney beans and a bit of hamburger.

    When I feel a cold coming on I use Echinasea and lots of vitamins C.

    I use a Canon RebelT1i.

    I go to bed late but get up early.

    Still waiting to see another corner of your rug. Hugs. JB

  16. Thanks for putting up with my silly horse! I told him I was visiting Mickey Mouse, but he was disgusted that I would hang out with a rodent. (?) Have a great week!I'll post pictures when I return.
