The folks ate at a place called Hard Times Cafe the other night. It is a place that is just down the road from our campground. They are known for their chili. They brought out a sampler of their chili before the folks ordered.
Texas Chili: Coarse ground beef cooed in its own juice, using an authentic turn of the century family spice blend and recipe.
Cincinnati Chili: Introduced in 1922 by Greek immigrants, it is a fine grind of beef with a tomato base and sweeter spices including cinnamon.
Terlingua Red: A tribute to the Texas ghost town that hosted the first Chili cook-off. A redder color and spicy kick of championship chilies.
Vegetarian Chili: Soy flakes cooked in a tomato base with fresh mushrooms, onions, green peppers, jalapenos & peanuts.
Mama decided to order their Five Way Chili Mac which is spaghetti, chili, cheese, onions & beans. She chose the Texas chili. She decided that she should have mixed it with the Terlingua Red since the Texas Chili is a little greasy. The portion size was huge though and she brought some home and had it for lunch the next day.

Yesterday, Mama ate at the cafe here. She said the burger was really good. She will probably go back tonight. She bought a cup from them because they give unlimited refills for your entire stay and if you come back at any time in the future, they say you can get free refills. Mama says that is a good deal because she loves her Diet Pepsi. She has already had like four refills and we are here for a few more days. Mama gets excited over the silliest things.

Oh, we were asked what is up with all the turtles. We don't know, but we found where they have some in storage. LOL
