    What I did today

    Each year around this time, Usually after the first flake falls I find myself really wanting to make a big pot of chilli. Well it snowed today. Now, I can't cook as fast as the other half of my domestic existence but I sure can cook the hell out of some chili. So here it is.

    P.S. It's supposed to be burned around the edge.

    Great minds think alike. I made a big pot like that today. Yours looks better. No snow here. I actually worked outside with a short sleeved shirt today.

    I have been refining this recipe for a while. Lots of beans, Lots of meat. The rest is a secret. It snowed just enough for an excuse to make it.

    grant, Grant, GRANT! Don't do that to me at suppertime!

    I gathered in most of the ingredients, Anasazi and Red Beans, PROBably from Dave Kirsten's brokerage, some decent chipotle's (couldn't find any Chimayo's), some OK Hatch's, bit o' onion, a couple other secret things, and just waiting for the local venison/elk/moose. Secret proportions, though.

    Might have to borrow Girlscout's slowcooker....

    Thanks. cubscout

    Beans

    Grant! That chili smells good too, bet a gallon of that would cost alot more than a gallon of A.V gas.

    On the other hand, the pasties we built were pretty darn good, too, eh? Kinda reminiscent of Madeline's near Marquette, plenty rutabagies and stuff....



    Thanks, eh? cubscout

    Looks like a beautiful batch there. There is nothing like a great bowl of chili, except maybe a bowl the second day. I really think that chili is better the second day, in most cases. I like mine with a nice warm piece of fresh corn bread. Granted, working at a firehouse, I get more than my share of chili, not all of it good, but I still love it!

    Hey Grant: the cold and sloppy weather has arrived in Indiana, prompting me to make a monster pot of flaming hot pozole. It would have been a perfect accompaniment to your chili. The boys demolished the whole pot in one marathon sitting. Good stuff.

    Lance, You "got-danged" right man

    Fellas, I was just telling my wife that I need to make up a batch. The weather here has been quite mild so I have not had the "Hankerin'" just yet..

    We are off to Disney World with Bridget next week and I'll have the need to whip up a batch when I get home. Stay Tuned!

    I get gas just looking at it!!

    I add a bottle of beer to mine - really mellows out the tomato acid and brings out the chillies.

    A great way to use up some venison, too!

    I like to add vinegar to my chili after it is in the bowl.

    Blackened catfish w/ red beans and rice for lunch. A couple of Shiners to wash it down. That's comfort food!

    This is too wierd. I made my first batch today also. The slow cooker is soaking in the sink. I should probably invest in a box of those plastic slow cooker liners.

    My Phone battery died so no picture. I'll post a photo of a bowl of the left-overs. Same as last year, Lots of beef and pork chunks.

    Those liners would save me lots of clean up time.

    Grant, what did the vikings do with Sage Rosenthal? I think thats the last name, He could throw the football the length of the field like a bullet.
