(2) Fri Oct 15 2004 20:45 We Ain't Got The Money Fur The Mo'gage on The Farm!: I wore my overalls to the chili cookoff. It's fun to wear them. I wish I had a straw hat too. My chili won the Wow Stand Up and Take Notice award because it was unique. Said the judge. I think it is too salty and I don't like it, but I can never tell if something is really too salty or too anything anymore so what do I know. I'll ask Rachel tomorrow. If it is too salty, it's the fault of either the Pace or the seasoning packet, which didn't have salt separate like some of them do. I don't think I'll make that recipe again. I prefer a more tomato-y chili. The one I had was pretty good--I smelled them all first before I took some. I ate a few bites of pumpkin pie too, which tasted lovely, but was not so good when I threw it up. It was a fun activity.

One of the kids stuck his finger into a pumpkin pie at the grocery store yesterday. Alyson bought the pie. Come to find out it was sugar free and the sweetener was horrible. I had a small piece and was tasting this aweful chemically sweet taste for the rest of the night. It even stood up to Tom's of Maine's Cinnamint, which is powerful stuff.

I don't believe in artificial sweeteners. If you're gonna treat yourself to somethins sweet, just do it! Who thinks up these things?
