LOL! And I just realized, this is a SmothieX multi-quote fest.
Cool! Just the ego trip I need!
The chili was good last night. I got an assortment of mild to hot chiles from the Stop & Shop and roasted them up, skinned 'em, and diced 'em. I went all out and instead of using chop meat, cubed up a steak into little pieces.
Browned the meat and an onion, threw in 3 cans of assorted beans, couple cans of diced tomatoes, and a can of hominy. I let it simmer for a bit so the flavors would mingle, then just spiced it to taste.
It came out well, but the diced peppers kidna ended up in pockets together. You'd get a nice bite with some heat to it, followed by a mouthful of lava in the next spoonful. Oh well.
I'm paying for all the chiles today though...
I don't need to cook for the rest of the week as I have enough leftovers to hold me over until the wife gets back on Sunday.
I still can't believe they scheduled a conference over Labor Day weekend. I could see it if it were international, and holidays are different, but who the hell wants to sit in a Minneapolis conference center over the unofficial end of summer holiday weekend.
Your chili sounds GREAT!!!
I agree with you about your wife's conference. What's up with that?
And finally, I'm sorry but your reference to "paying for the chili" today immediately made me think of the classic South Park episode where Cartman gets an anal probe.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled culinary thread.
