The first  "chile con carne" was comprised of boiled tomatoes, salt, chiles and meat in 1519.

No tomatoes.  

Beans are OK with chili, just not cooked in the chili.  Cooked separately then can be added in the bowl, if one likes.

Okay, so it sounds like I'm on the right track with the spices I'm using.  I might try the liquid smoke or toasting the spices or something like that.  I'll skip the tomato paste - maybe that's why it's so acidic and tomatoey.

And I'll get some chipotle or ancho chili pepper and red pepper flakes. 

Glam - if real chili doesn't include meat or tomatoes, what the heck is it supposed to be?

I'll check out sparky's blog too - my hubs can never get too much pork. 


Wait, that sounded wrong.  :D

NO meat???? what the heck are you talking about?  I said no tomatoes or green peppers!  BEEF - chuck, not ground.

If you want the real deal, I'll send you the recipe,or just try different concoctions until you get something you like...and call it "chili" .

Real chili doesn't have tomatoes...or green peppers.

Original Post by mrswilsonscat:

What I'm looking forward to goes something like this:

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me,
And I shall spend my pension
on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals,
and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired,
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells,
And run my stick along the public railings,
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other people's gardens,
And learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat,
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go,
Or only bread and pickle for a week,
And hoard pens and pencils and beer mats
and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry,
And pay our rent and not swear in the street,
And set a good example for the children.
We will have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
So people who know me
are not too shocked and surprised,
When suddenly I am old
and start to wear purple!

In fact, I realise I am wearing a purple top right now! ;-)

I just got my 6th tat last Friday.  It's a beautiful Kio fish done in blue tones.  Kio stands for strength.  I got it because of my bus accident and subsiquent honors from the school for my actions.

Here are some basic tips Kathy.

Things Car and Truck Drivers Should Know About Motorcycles
  • Because motorcycles can be hard to spot, always look for them, especially when checking traffic at an intersection.
  • Because of its small size, a motorcycle may look farther away than it is. Predict that a motorcycle is closer than it looks.
  • Motorcycles often look like they are moving faster than they really are.
  • Motorcyclists often slow down by downshifting or merely rolling off the throttle, therefore not activating a brake light. Allow 3 or 4 seconds of following distance and predict a motorcyclist may slow down at intersections without visual warning.
  • Be aware that motorcycle turn signals are usually not self-canceling and some bikers may forget to turn them off.
  • Bikers often adjust position within a lane to be seen more easily and to stray clear of road debris, passing cars, and wind. Understand that these position shifts aren’t to be reckless, show off, or allow you to share a lane with them.
  • When a motorcycle is in motion, don’t think of it as a motorcycle; think of it as a person.
  • Give ample room when passing a motorcycle. Again depth perception is not as keen when applied to judging a motorcycles position or speed from car or truck.

Thank you for posting this :)

This ones for Ccat:


Nudist groups are not sex clubs.
If you are not familiar with the nudist lifestyle, you need to be aware of some things that nudist groups don't offer.
1. A nudist group is not a dating service.
2. A nudist group is not a swingers club.
3. Nudist groups do not allow touching between members outside of that which you would reasonably expect to see at a non-nude social gathering.
Don't come looking for sex. You're only going to be disappointed, and if you offend anyone, you will be permanently barred from the activities.

They are full of ALL types of folks...not just us old folks.  However, "Ken and Barbie" you probably won't see :)
