Beware of the Sentient Chili

What a clever person! It evokes so many images and makes one smile all the way through.
I wish I knew the melody to "Sentient Chili," but I didn't spend enough time with the serious filksingers since I can't sing a note myself. And I loaned all my songbooks to a guy who had a stroke, moved back to Illinois, and died of diabetic complications almost 30 years ago. (and at the time I was busy trying to keep both my parents alive.)
There's a song about a "Bathtub Full of Lime Jell-O" from the same era...it's sung to the tune of Gilbert & Sullivan's "Tit-Willow." I can't find the lyrics on the net anywhere...
Felaine, love the Sentient Chili. Maybe it's time to make up another pot.
Finally cooked up a rhubarb dessert. I don't know what took me so long. it's so easy.
The rhubarb mix:
8 cups of 1/2 inch slices of fresh rhubarb
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup rolled oats.
1/2 cup soft butter.
Preheat over to 375.
Spray 13 x 8 casserole dish with nonstick spray.
Combine rhubarb mix and spread into casserole dish.
Combine topping mix and sprinkle clumps over the rhubarb.
Bake 35 minutes until bubbling and hot in the center.
That's all. Easy.
The 2 of us ate it all in 2 days.
Sentient Chili is amusing. Sinko de Mayo word play is also.
by Chris Weber Beware of the sentient Chili that burbbles away on your stove the peppers are silently plotting with legumes, tomatos and cloves. At night when you're comfortably sleeping and lie unaware in your bed the vegetables plan insurection the lettice are seeking new heads. It may start with slight indigestion from underdone turnip cake crumbs. Frustration in several world leaders whose rice seems to stick to their gums. In kitchens across every nation the tinniest things will go wrong. The plot of the sentient chili strikes Moscow and Rome and Hong Kong. The casserol, spinich and cheesecake lend quite support to the scheme. The nerves of a planet are streached then while tempers start slowly to steam. Still none see the grand machinations now tilting world balance awry- The stage set for final disaster. The chili sits back with a sigh. The one day the conflict is started by generals whose lunches were odd. The mushrooms rejoice as their brothers stalk city to city like god. When dust and all clamor are settled there's not a soul left from the frey. The sentient chili just chuckles and happily simmers away.*******************************
SENTIENT CHILI: Chris Weber wrote "Beware of the Sentient Chili," a popular filksong whose lyrics were published in ASIMOV'S. Since the song was first sung, any pot of chili made for a filksing has been called Sentient Chili. [Occasionally, when two pots are prepared, one hot and one mild, they will be referred to as sentient and non"sentient, respectively.
Oh yummy Sentient pizza and ice cream sandwiches - sounds like a good day.
Heh! Before I came out here to check my e-mail, I put a frozen, semi-cooked loaf of bread in the oven, and had a couple of spoonfuls (spoonsful?) of ice cream. *giggle* It is good for what ails ya...even diabetes. (One or two won't hurt anyone, and as for the ice cream sammidges, the way they make them today, they're so small that two makes barely a proper single serving.)
Hope today is better. Two or three ice cream sandwiches sounds wonderful. Tomorrow is payday, so will probably buy some.
