Out of the Blue

Wow, the weatherman didn't lie, as it's pretty chilly out there, so I've decided I will totally celebrate by making some chili. I mentioned to MrsBlue that the news that the international chili cook-off was permitting beans for the first time had me contemplating making a chili that included some of the stuff I never use, like beans, tomatoes, and onions. She just looked back at me and said "no." At least I don't have to worry that she's tired of the way I make it.

Above 10000 is "Ninja", and above 20000 is "Jedi", but no one knows what above 30000 is or if Blue even has a designation for it yet since no one has reached that plateau. If not, may I suggest naming it in honor of the member who will undoubtedly be the first to get there? I think it should be "nin-JA". HAHAHAHA - see what I did there?

Hello? Anybody?





Hmpf. Tough crowd.

So, noticed I passed the 2k post mark recently and got myself a new title -- is there a list somewhere of all the titles?

I think 5000-10000 is Guru, 10K-20K is Ninja and 20K+ is Jedi. And there's a Master somewhere too. Maybe 2500 to 5000?

No idea what happens at 30K, but I'm sure nin will reach that next week and will tell us. I think the title will just be "nin", actually.

It used to be much easier to attain those ranks but then you spammers forced a recalibration

HAY! nin and I are not spammers! hahahahaha

I'm hurt.

Hurt that the ranks are harder to attain or because you think I called you a spammer? You're not even close to that

Wurd. I love those damn things.

And I just noticed (because someone mentioned it) that I'm a NINJA! Woohoo - Go me! Boogie


Now, what does it get me?

The no beans thing is crazy. Put some tomatoes and beans in there. It's so stupid. I love the chili recipe but I definitely add beans and either tomatoes or some tomato paste.

Onions. God put 'em here for us to eat. And he chocked 'em full of folic acid and magnesium. And that's real good for your colon. But I like 'em cuz they taste good, like America used to.

Why would you WANT beans in chili? It's filler. It adds nothing beyond increasing chili yield/keeping production cost down. If you absolutely have to have a massive amount of cheap chili, sure, use beans.

Beside the health benefits, I agree, it's not chili without beans. However that does remind me of a scene between Willie Nelson and Rip Torn in Another Pair of Aces where they're eating chili around the fire and Willie mentions - as they're in Texas - that he hears that northerners put beans in their chili and Rip Torn replies that he believes he would have to kill the man that put beans in his chili.
