Thanks Sarah for choosing our homophone sets this week.
hail – frozen rain
hale – robust health
Classic memory of the words “All hale Caesar” and visions of some guy dressed in Mum’s best white sheets getting soaked to the skin in the hail and rain.
Chile – South American country
chili – dried pod of red pepper
chilly – uncomfortably cool
I’ve never been to Chile, and often wondered if that’s where the chili peppers originated.
I understand that the smaller they are, the hotter.
I’ve cooked chili con carne but rely on the ground powdered variety adding kidney beans, onions, garlic, tomatoes and our rather mellow red, green and yellow peppers to the meat mix. Perfect for a chilly day!
