Aaaah…. the crisp fall air. It makes me want to cuddle up with a big bowl of chili, a good ol’ hunk of gluten, and binge watch some Netflix shows. Sadly, I planned this post before mother nature got the memo that it is the first week of fall and it is still a nice balmy 80 degrees where I live. Oh well. I guess we can save this recipe for later. That’s what Pinterest and bookmarks are for, right?
We can still binge watch some shows though!
Let’s discuss! I have been addicted to Party of Five. The show, for those of you who don’t know, is about 5 siblings who lose their parents in a drunk driving accident. The oldest brother, Charlie, who is 24 at the time, is made their guardian. Sounds like a real positive show. Well, the show premiered in 1999 when I was in my Freshman/Sophomore year of high school.
I remember at the time maybe catching an episode here or there and wanting to watch the show more but with sports and social life and limited TV sharing access, I never did.
Watching the first and second season in my 30’s, makes me really really happy I never watched it when I was in my impressionable teenage years.
It was bad enough I thought I had no love life at the time, but compared to all the Salinger kids, yikes, my life was dull! I feel like every few episodes new boyfriends and girlfriends were coming and going. But on the flip side, it was also super easy and pretty happy compared to those kids’.
Please tell me what show are you binge watching? Because I am cruising through Pof5. Hopefully when I finish the series, you will give me a new show to watch or rewatch and then it will be cool enough for all of us to enjoy this ugly yet comforting slow cooker chili.
