It's rhubarb and asparagus that's coming on for me. I use the same recipe for my rhubarb crisp, Daniel. Yum.

Felaine, be sure and share the recipe for your "sweet & peppery sauce that sneaks up on you...."

Oh, Joan!  Thank you!  I wish I had the ingredients for a pot of chili, but I don't right now...just fresh veg for a mess if stir fry.  Maybe I'll think uo a song about that...

"The Sly Stir Fry"  with a sweet & peppery sauce that sneaks up on you....

Beware of the Sentient Chili

by Chris Weber

Beware of the sentient Chili
that burbbles away on your stove
the peppers are silently plotting
with legumes, tomatos and cloves.

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

The topping:

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.

Beware of the Sentient Chili

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.
