Chilli con carne with crazy rice, yogurt and corn on the cob

When I make chilli con carne I like to serve it with wild rice (or crazy rice as my kids call it).  They decant it from separate bowls but it looks slightly nicer than just slopped on a plate.  That's sour cream and parsley as a garnish. I realise that food photography is a whole different thing to serving up meals for your family.  The lighting is always poor at evening supper and I snap on my smart phone.  I now understand why the great Elizabeth David insisted on only pencil sketches to illustrate her cookery despatches.  I will no doubt go to hell mentioned the great Ms David in the same breathe as this meal attempt.
