I can enjoy chili of all types, I enjoy the variety. DW makes a great chicken & white bean chili, but that is a very, very different dish from a beef-meaty chili w/o beans. They are both great in their own way. I'm even open to a good veggie chili, if there is such a thing, I may have had one I can't recall.

Same with the different BBQ styles - enjoy them for what they are. They are all good, sugar, tomato, vinegar, whatever - I'm almost glad I was not raised with a regional preference, that would be too limiting.

You mean "Each person can have his or her own preference".

Singular subject (person), singular object (preference) and singular preposition (his or her).

Boy, that sounds good!

I am a person who likes beans!

Slightly off topic, but the venison post reminded me of this. When my daughter was a small child, my DH would pack whatever we had for dinner for her lunch at the babysitter's house the next day. She was a tiny thing and did not eat very much, but he would pack enough for at least 1 adult and maybe more. Everyday, when I would pick her up, her babysitter would say that she had finished her lunch and boy was it good. I told my DH that she really liked the spaghetti. He asked me if she ate venison and I told him that I assumed so, but did not really know. I asked her the next day and she assured me that she definitely did not eat venison. I had no choice, but to tell her that it was in the delicious spaghetti that she ate and that we cooked with it frequently. She had a very funny look on her face. She would always tell me that she did not finish my DD's lunch after this time. I don't remember how long it was after this, but one day she told me that DD did not eat all of her spaghetti and she could not help herself and she finished it and that it was good!

Ok, this will surprise some folks (mostly Texans). My wife, who is a native born & bred Texan, who never crossed the borders of the state of Texas to visit any other place before she met me, is at this moment boiling a pot of beans to add to her chili recipe that was handed down from her mother (of German decent), also a native Texan that never left the state.

Update:
I am just now being informed that her mother also did make chili without beans for her dad, sometimes. She made it both ways. Therefore, I have now requested that the NEXT pot of chili cooked in our house be made the "traditional" Texas way...without beans!

Oh boy, I stepped in that one. Let's see if I can recover - my use of 'their' was correct, it was my use of "Each person" that was incorrect. Yeah, that's the ticket! So how about 'People can have their own preference'? Does that work? Or does it now need to be 'preferences'? I hate grammar!

Like I said in that thread, some of this is easy for me, but there are many areas I struggle with (like ending sentences with prepositions).

I love chili but my digestive system, not so much. Break out the Beano beforehand or I will regret it later.

Don't eat beans, problem solved. Seriously I do understand no fun.

Years ago I got into growing peppers, of course being male that included habanros. Read lots of information on how to enjoy the sweet fruity hot favor. It worked, after much pratice, sweat and fruity. My digestive system never got the message.
