Re: Home from Bash. Check in time.
I got in at 2:20. Took just under four hours. Pushed a vicious headwind and burned a half tank of gas in the first 70 miles. Then turned south and just had a crosswind to battle.
Frank got home a few minutes later. He and I will get together tomorrow so I can download his pictures. I'll send MOST of them to Dale. Some of them should be worth a bunch of dollars to someone. You know who you are. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] No wise cracks, please.
Several people asked for my chili recipe. Although my feelings are hurt becaused nobody would make a batch of my hot cheese dip, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I'll let post the chili recipe anyway.
JIM’S PRETTY GOOD CHILI
5 Lbs.coarse ground beef
4 Lbs. coarse ground pork
1 Gallon chopped tomatoes
1 Gallon tomato sauce
3 Large green peppers, diced
3 Large yellow onions, diced
1¼ Cup chili powder
½ Cup powdered cumin
½ Head garlic
½ Tablespoon or more cayenne
2 Cup Masa corn flower
2 Tablespoons or more salt
½ Gallon water
Throw chopped tomatoes and tomato sauce into large pot.
Separately brown beef and pork and throw into large pot.
Throw garlic, peppers and onions into the pot.
Heat large pot of stuff to near boil as quickly as possible.
Mix flour, water, spices and salt to slightly runny goo and throw into large pot.
Heat to boil as quickly as possible, stirring constantly. Don’t cook it longer – the aromas of the seasonings escape.
Makes about 4 gallons.
