This year for the Ds awareness walk, I decided to try my hand at being a chili chef. I happen to have an inside track to an already award-winning chili, or chile recipe...thanks to my friend Tim... and I wanted to give it a whirl.
I decided on the name "Bubba's Chile" because I thought it would be awesome to have Nate be a part of the whole thing, since he's the reason why we were all there to begin with...and since Bubba is his, well, his bubba....it made sense to have both boys be in the gig, with Andrew being the "chef."
So I got Andrew's chef's hat all squared away with his name on it, and when I went looking for a matching chef's hat for Nate, I came across one with a red truck on it. A no-brainer. Have you ever seen a 3 year old boy with a red truck? omg-sh. It's his favorite thing in the world. So there it was; the full name. Bubba's Red Truck Chile (with an "e", since I made the real deal)
What a bunch of troopers. Walking in the rain. But really? Doesn't rain kinda make it more fun and memorable, anyway? I think so.
