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.

Dog saves dog buddies video looks pretty staged, but it's still very impressive for him to pull it off. He was having to paddle for all he was worth just to battle the current.

I don't know, whenever I see something like that I wonder what the fuck the camera person and everyone else is doing. The current didn't look strong enough to drown anyone attempting to help, I didn't see any attempts to rope or hook the boat, etc.

Which is why I think it was staged as well.

Yeah, that's why I said it was staged.

Unfair comparison. With or without beans chili can be bad, good, or great.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

My wife won't let me put beans in the chili either...which is too bad because I learned this excellent recipe for black bean chili back in college while living in Phoenix, AZ. The really great part about it is that it is one of the "fire and forget" crock pot recipes where you throw it all together in the morning...come back from work/school in the evening and you have awesome chili. My second favorite recipe uses anise seed, and she won't go for that either. In fact, the most generic and mild bean-less chili I have in my recipe book is basically the only one she will go for. Frustrating to say the least.

YES! Go Mrs. Blue!

If you have made something resembling chile with beans, you have only succeeded in making bean soup.
