I need to get out of here and go feed the clinic cats and just skimmed some stuff about chili and the eternal chili with or with out beans argument.

So--for Denny--I tried to think of what needed slicing and dicing for chili--the only thing I could think of was onion, garlic and peppers. I use canned tomatoes so I wouldn't be slicing (or dicing ) tomatoes.

About red chili (which is traditionally without beans (and is called by my Mexican friends chili Colorado con carne y frijoles). I rarely make red chili and when I do I don't make it with beans. Mostly I make black bean chili--obviously that one is with beans--lots of meat (usually beef but sometimes a mixture of beef and pork) chili's, sweet peppers too, onions, garlic and all the traditional spices.

No Denny--I don't use tabasco sauce--I make a medium hot chili and if anyone wants it hotter I hand them the bottle of tabasco sauce and a container of ground red chilis (very hot stuff).

Now I really have to go feed those clinic kitties. Toad is snoring--he learned it from Lady Di.

You guys inspired me to take some chili out of the freezer that I froze this summer after I made a big batch! I love all kinds of chili. It's such a great food - so flexible. So many ways to make it, so many delicious recipes!

Food talk (in response to previous posts):

1. I like maple syrup with my sausage.

2. I love black beans, and would much rather have good homemade borracho beans than those nasty refried things.

3. I dot chili around on corn chips, lots and lots of very sharp cheese (detect a pattern here?), a few fresh sliced jalapenos, and microwave to make a version of nachos. Served with sour cream of course. I suppose some people would include some fresh salsa heaped on top after the microwaving, but why try to make the meal healthier?

4. Apple jelly and peanut butter make a good sandwich; apple butter is good with peanut butter too. If you're really feeling decadent (and if I eat peanut butter, I'm usually feeling decadent), add butter to your sandwich...it cuts the stickiness and complements the flavor. IMO

5. We use tabasco, but generally prefer a hot sauce with a little less vinegaryness (that's a word--right?). We also have a jar of ghost pepper sauce which sneaks up on you and then there's nothing you can do but live with the burn for a half hour or so. Too hot for me, and even a bit much for my son I think (though he would never admit it.)

6. I'm taking a new medicine which requires that you take it on an empty stomach about an hour before you eat (or a couple of hours after your meal) So I get up and take it right away and then wait for breakfast. I never was that much of a breakfast fan and was never particularly hungry in the morning (no comments from you guys about my sleeping through breakfast, please ), but now that I have to wait, I get up ravenous.

Alright Peeps.

Sharing my hard decision on the DT only because I have more friends here than in real life.

Because I don't go anywhere and the people I do meet when I find myself out and about don't have the same interests as I do and after talking to my friends in other States that are horse people, I have come to the hard decision to put Stryker down.

When I first brought him home after boarding him for years, after my horse shoer unloaded him and left, I told The Mister, "I brought him home to die".

After last winter I told Mister, "If I can't get the weight on him this summer, I am putting him down".

Well, here we are. Couldn't get the weight on him and I am making a heart breaking decision.

No definite plans have been made yet, but my mind is made up. I can not put him through another winter with no meat on his bones.

I've been weepy for a few days now while contacting my horse friends before setting the scene.

Thanks for listening.



No concolences needed, as of yet.

It's just such a hard decision.

I made the wrong decision with my Dobe girl, Ktrin and waited too long. I promised myself I would never do that to an animal again.

This is hard, as I know you all know, as well.

Hey! I am going to comment on #6. I am hungry in the morning but don't get an appetite until I am at work, and eggs and bacon don't sound appetizing to me AT ALL. I am ready for steak or pizza or something by the time my appetite wakes up! I am on your side, Ma!

All I can say is that you know Stryker better than anyone else. You'll make the right decision for him, even though it's hard.

Words are so inadequate....

It may have been on another thread but whoever suggested dremelling (is that a word?) the nails around the quick without touching the quick, to get it to recede...thank you, thank you, thank you! You can barely hear clicking when Mocha walks on the wood floors now

Edit: hmmm now I'm wondering if that suggestion came from the FB group...oh well, doesn't matter

Kenny just thinks he can't quit laughing--I bet I outlaughed him. I used to like stuff a lot hotter than I do now--I still like it really spicey with a fair amount of heat but not fire alarm hot. A long ago SO who not only loved my chili he loved it even hotter than I did. But it didn't love him so much--and I got the brunt of it in the bedroom--I'd wake up in the middle of the night because Bruce was tossing and turning and yanking all the covers off of me and then slinging them back over me.

And my eyes would be burning and I'd be gasping for air. Eventually I'd wake up enough to open all the windows and the slider to the patio and escape out to sleep on the couch in the back room where the television lived (so that it was close to the kitchen).

Putting the hot sauce on the table and the ground up red peppers didn't fix the problem for him--he'd be ladeling hot sauce (and it wasn't actually tabasco but a hot 'Lousiana' sauce) and spoonsfuls of red pepper--I'd be saying Bruce--"you're going to regret that"--everyone else at the table would laugh and someone was sure to say "Not at much as you'll regret it..."

Our deck is 15 years old and pretty much falling apart (when our house was built, we were still overseas so we weren't there to watch the contractors and they used nails instead of wood screws, plus the deck wasn't stained until 6 years later when we got back to the states) so we're having a new one built, plus a nice stamped concrete patio off to the side.

The work wasn't supposed to start until November sometime but I got a text today telling me someone else had cancelled so if we wanted, they could start later next week...which meant we had to clear all the crap from under the deck plus all the plants, the table and chairs, and the huge grilling station canopy thingy on the deck. And I'm kind of OCD/anal when it comes to getting stuff done, once I start I want to finish it all and get it behind me so I can be lazy LOL

Some of the plants and the grilling station

Said plants and grilling station gone with Mocha supervising

Most of the crap that was under and on the deck (except the riding mower which is still down there)...sheesh, think we have enough plants?

Mocha practicing for her trip to Westminster; ok, she was patiently waiting for her mommy to come back outside


And yeah, my back is already talking to me, it's feeling every single one of the plants we moved down the stairs today...thank goodness we have a dolly which made it somewhat easier.

I can't wait to see the new deck!

I think you have enough plants and also think you need some new deck furniture.

Just saying.

I'm popping a few aspirin and having my wife put biofreeze on my lower back right before I go to bed...hopefully that'll help so I won't look like the walking dead tomorrow morning!

I think we're going to keep the table but the chairs definitely have to go. The material started rotting from being outdoors all this time so 2 of the chairs have big rips in them. You would think that OUTDOOR furniture would be built to take abuse like sunlight and rain, wouldn't you?

2. I love black beans, and would much rather have good homemade borracho beans than those nasty refried things.
You'd love the Oaxacan Baked Black Beans I make--another one I make n a crock pot since they are supposed to cook for 10 hours. Really a simple recipe but I've taken pots of it to get-togethers and gotten rave reviews.

3. I dot chili around on corn chips, lots and lots of very sharp cheese (detect a pattern here?), a few fresh sliced jalapenos, and microwave to make a version of nachos. Served with sour cream of course. I suppose some people would include some fresh salsa heaped on top after the microwaving, but why try to make the meal healthier?
I slather a spoonful of black bean chili on a warmed corn tortilla--put some extra raw onions and some really sharp cheddar on it and fold it up and eat it leaning over the sink. Oh yeah--and sour cream (I almost forgot)

Quote:
4. Apple jelly and peanut butter make a good sandwich; apple butter is good with peanut butter too. If you're really feeling decadent (and if I eat peanut butter, I'm usually feeling decadent), add butter to your sandwich...it cuts the stickiness and complements the flavor. IMO
I'm addicted to sourdough bread so I like peanut butter but prefer marionberry jam to apple jelly--now you know why Toad's favorite treat is sourdough bread dripping with butter and marionberry jam). I like apple butter better than apple jelly. And I have a friend who taught me to make butter, peanut butter, mayonnaise and lettuce sandwiches--taste a lot better than they sound.

Quote:
5. We use tabasco, but generally prefer a hot sauce with a little less vinegaryness (that's a word--right?). We also have a jar of ghost pepper sauce which sneaks up on you and then there's nothing you can do but live with the burn for a half hour or so. Too hot for me, and even a bit much for my son I think (though he would never admit it.)
Actually I don't really use tabasco--I may call it that but it's a hot sauce labeled in the store "Louisiana Hot Sauce" or if I'm in the store that doesn't stock than one there is another one that is almost identical (I recognize it on the shelf but of course I can't remember the name) But it isn't as vinegary as real tobacco--and I'm sure vinegaryness is a perfectly good word.

Quote:
6. I'm taking a new medicine which requires that you take it on an empty stomach about an hour before you eat (or a couple of hours after your meal) So I get up and take it right away and then wait for breakfast. I never was that much of a breakfast fan and was never particularly hungry in the morning (no comments from you guys about my sleeping through breakfast, please ), but now that I have to wait, I get up ravenous.
I'm one of those freaks who wakes up starving and a couple of guys who knew this about me (and who knew that I'm a diehard lark and am awake very early would call me (sometimes because they hadn't been to bed yet) at really early hours and ask me if I wanted to go have breakfast (my answer was always "Yeah, sure--let me just put some clothes on--am I picking you up or are you picking me up?")

Fortunately the meds I'm taking now all require that I have food before, during or immediately after I takem them.

Geeze Mel, I just got my geriatric girl delivered for this week and along with her normal pills and food I got a carton of eggs (I guess someone told Ken that I always give my dogs an egg for dinner along with their kibble and pills) and some chocolate chip cookies made without wheat flour (because the other half of the batch was going to our friend Nancy who is a full blown celiac (and that's why I know how to make two kinds of pie crusts using no wheat flour)--so instead of the normal wheat flour these were made with almond and some other kind of nut flour--YUM! Really good cookies.

TN,

You need to have the magic back brace that the surgeon who gave me the bad news about the fact that my sciatic (and the cause of it aren't going to be fixed via surgery) Ordered me up a cast iron back brace--which I wear if I'm doing a lot of active stuff. Mowing lawns, working in the clinic, going for long walks (my dog doesn't even want to go for long walks any more--he's almost 14--older in people years than I am in dog years), pulling weeds, raking leaves, dragging stuff around I shouldn't be moving by myself etc.

Turns out it really makes a difference--it isn't so much my back but my sciatic nerve starts screaming about how it's being treated if I don't remember to use the brace.

You guys inspired me to take some chili out of the freezer that I froze this summer after I made a big batch! I love all kinds of chili. It's such a great food - so flexible. So many ways to make it, so many delicious recipes!


Sure it is MC -- sure it is ! Have you read about alan j. Chili ? You eat that and you won't be thinking about your migraines - just say 'n'

Here's the problem - TN and the other have gotten soft ! You guys come here to the farm and I will whip you all back into shape ! Nothing like a good scoop shovel to build you back up - maybe some climbing up the bins a few dozen times - how about some walking to boot !

Bunch of pansy's on here
