Chili is one of those foods that I can eat all the time. Morning, noon, or night! When I was a teenager I worked for a large landscaping nursery loading trees on trucks all day. I could eat whatever I wanted since I was young and constantly lifting fir trees onto flatbeds. Each morning I would stop at this greasy spoon establishment on the way to work, and order a breakfast sandwich: Bacon, Egg, Sausage, Cheese, and Chili on a Kaiser Roll. It was hearty, and kept me going until it was time for some equally dangerous lunch decisions at the diner nextdoor.
