Out of the Blue

My firm stand in my chili standoff with MrsBlue ended up paying off nicely. We finished off the batch of the newer recipe I favored yesterday, and my better half ultimately had to admit it turned out great. She was advocating I make my previous recipe so I'm glad I stuck to my guns. Splitting four pounds of red meat in such a short time was quite extreme, but that shows how much we enjoyed it. I'll make another batch after we've had a couple of weeks of digestion. This will probably be larger, and I will preserve some of it, either by freezing or by canning if I can finally make good on my overdue by over a decade plan to get started with that. I have plans to further integrate some of the old recipe into the new one, so I'll hold off on writing up exactly what I'm doing until I'm satisfied that I'm done tinkering.
