Squiggy in a Volt.

Sounds like the plot to a wacky and environmentally efficient new road comedy with lots of mooning and kilts.
It'd be the best offering NBC has this season.

^I love making chili, and make both chili and vegetarian chili pretty damned well, if I do say so myself. I've recently learned how to vastly improve my already exceptional chili con carne recipe by using the trick of a friend: cook it all day in beer.
beer? hubs will love that! do you just add it to the recipe?


bought a TOS stamper set off eBay. no earthly use for it whatsoever, just like knowing I can stamp Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the Ent1701 on any surface I wish. Silly and intoxicating!
It depends on how you make your chili, I suppose. I use beef, beans, and tomato in mine, and I never add water but neither do I drain the liquids from any of the ingredients. When I tried it with beer I drained off some of the liquids and added the beer, and I cooked it about twice as long as I normally would, adding beer to keep it moist. It was AMAZING!

^And if you roast beef (in particular) in a roaster, say a Römertopf, beer also does the trick

^A pot roast cooked in coffee is delicious! And I think it's actually a fairly common way to cook Yankee pot roast.

^I am definitely going to look into that and try and cook that way

I'm a bit afraid that it'll ruin the eating experience for people who can't abide coffee though. Tell me, does the taste come through very strong?

I mean: if you grill a chicken on a beer can it doesn't taste like beer, and if you use a can of cola the cola-taste isn't in the meat... but coffee, really?

^It actually doesn't taste at all like coffee, to my recollection, but it has been a long while since I've had it. Also, I brew bold coffee in a french press for ten minutes with 50% more grinds than recommended...I might not be the best at detecting the more subtle coffee flavor.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

^I do the french press too, and let the grinds fall to the bottom by themselves (a bit of stirring is necessary) (AND spoon off the bitter foam) before 'pressing' (here's the trick: if you can't press it with your little finger and little to no muscle-power at all: the coffee isn't ready to be pressed!) and I use whatever beans in whatever amount I feel makes the best drink.

I must try roasting with coffee anyways

^HA! Everyone hates my coffee, but it sounds like you'd love it!

I don't have my mom's coffee pot roast recipe, but I'm sure if you googled it you could find one. Most Yankee pot roasts call for chopped carrots and small potatoes as well, but my mom always put in who grape or cherry tomatoes too. I'd highly recommend it!

Quite possible

I was once put in the coffee snob-category by members of this very board
