Fun with Cooking!

Not content to sit on my laurels, I am tweaking my chili receipe to get it ready for *next* year's cook off. *g* Today's experiement: adding beer to the batch.

I did a 2 pound batch - 2 pounds ground beef (browned with Penzey's Taco sauce and butter, then drained), 2 cans tomato sauce, 6 tbls Penzey's chili powder, and 1/2 bottle of Guiness.

Meh. It didn't blow my skirt up. I don't know if a)the beer was flat (horrors!) b)I didn't add enough or c) I needed more chili powder. I could taste just a hint of barley.....it didn't do much for the flavor, didn't make it richer, just....didn't.

I'll grab a can of...something else for the next experiement. Or maybe I'll toss in some of my Lambrusco....hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

In other news, got the ATM/Debit card today (Finally!) Does me no good - I have no money, but hey! I got the card!

I also got the first payment on the pool - which is 1 more than I expected, frankly. That's good.

Gotta go put a wee laddie to bed - he fell asleep right after supper. Poor wee thing.....
