    With the weather cold like it is...I'm gonna make a big pot of 3 Meat Chili.

    Recipe:

    Brown then drain the 1 lbs packs of Ground Beef, Venison, and Pork...set aside.

    Open two large cans of Crushed Tomatoes with Garlic...set aside.

    Open two cans of Red Kidney Beans...drain and set aside.

    Open 2 bottles of Dos Equis (XX) Beer...sip on one while setting the other aside.

    Chop up some whole fresh Jalapeños...

    Finely chop up 3 Bell Peppers...Red, Green , Orange or Yellow...set aside

    Finely chop 1 large Red Onion...set aside.

    In a Sauce Pot of proportionate size to the amount of ingredients to be introduced:

    Alternately Layer the Crushed Tomatoes, Ground Beef, Chopped Red Onion, Ground Venison, Chopped Bell Peppers, Ground Pork, Kidney Beans and any Chili Peppers / Chili Powder / and then the chopped Jalapeños...then pour 1/3 of the Dos Equis beer evenly to the mix...one layer upon the next... same order... till all the ingredients are added to the pot.

    Place pot on simmer, stirring occasionally until all the ingredients blend ...finish 1st beer...open 2nd beer...Sip & Stir

    Place the pre opened Guacamole, Sour Cream, and Tex Mex cheese blend on the table...along with Chili Bowls and Teaspoons...and the rest of the 6 pack.

    Slice the fresh bread of your choice ( say French Artesian ) down...maybe even toast in the oven with a pat of butter on top...all the while stirring the pot and drinking the beer...

    When Chili is piping hot...ladle into the bowls...adding the Tex Mex cheese on top...then a dollop of sour cream, then a thin slice of Jalapeños...and garnish the plate the bowl is on with Guacamole and Blue Corn Mexican Tortilla Chips. { Don't forget the salsa...it's in the fridge }

    Pull the Dippin' Bread out of the oven...before it burns.

    Open another Dos Equis...do a shot of Patron Silver Tequila...and ENJOY !!

    Buenos Tardes' Mi Amigos... :D

    The only way I like bass better than baked is grilled. When you fillet the bass, leave the skin on. Then grill meat side down first, then flip and finish grilling with skin side down. The skin will burn but it will hold the meat together so you can get it off the grill without falling thru the grates. Prep it with oil and seasonings.

    My wife is on a "chicken" kick - you know - "because it's healthy". I pointed out that fish too is healthy but as I'm the only one in the house who eats fish and the windows are still closed, that idea was immediately nixed. It's Day 4 of the chicken and I'm starting to develop a strut and have this uncontrollable urge to go out and scratch around for gravel.

    Spaghetti tonight. On the stove simmering for a while. Just for about 2 hours, then turn it off and reheat before eating. I dont like it mushy. Vegiees have to be crisp. Been using the same receipt for for over 45 years. Not exactly the same every time but close. Will have a salad and some garlic/butter bread.

    There is a side burner on my grill that I use for frying fish. We don't like that fried fish smell in the house either!

    In revolt against the wife's "chicken kick", tonight I'm making a roast beef with steamed rice, kale and broccoli. Remember the old Chinese proverb that I just made up, "Man who eat too much bird that doesn't fly lay eggs and cross many roads without explanation."

    Fried chicken, celery with ranch dip, and for dessert, Amish Country canned Bartlet Pears. I needed a glass quart jar and can't buy them close buy one at a time so I got the pears in a quart jar...Tomorrow I will have pork steak, cottage cheese with the pears and a bit of juice and carrots w/ranch dressing as a dip. Then dessert will be home made yogurt with fruit cocktails...and I hope those roosters have clean tails. Oh, for a beverage I am drinking a homebrew of Mangrove Jack's IPA Recipe #1. It is so bitter it makes ya want to fight.
