    So far today seems like yesterday - steak and apples. Though I have some chili going in the crock pot. Well, if you can call something without a ton of peppers chili. Apparently I make it 'too hot' and had to scale way back to just chili powder. It makes my soul weep just a little.

    Tomorrow I am headed up to Tucson to see what TJs, Whole foods, and local butchers have to offer. There is jack for decent meat around here.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I know. I know. I usually use 5-6 different chilis. Apparently that wont fly with the better half so tomato crap with meat is basically what I am left with.

    Yeah. Mine is usually 5-7 as well (depending on whether I can get decent chipotles and hatch chiles.)

    yet another reason I like you. I think my big issue is that I do not like tomato-based sauces or soups. Chili that isn't hot and full of chilis just tastes way too much like tomato. Screw that.

    LOL, too hot,,,,,

    I grew about 12 kinds of hot peppers this summer, including Red Savina habaneros, and Bhut Jolokias. I also planted the hottest peppers in the world - Trinidad Scorpion X - but they died. The wimpiest pepper I grew was cayenne.

    When I make chili for ME, the pot is 75% peppers and onions.
    Start Date 9.24.12
    Starting weight 285ish ( scale is acting funny so I don't trust it, but 285 is close )
    CW - 271 pounds
    First Goal - 255 by 2013
    Main Goal - To be healthy for my family... I have an awesome family.
    Other Goal - to get off some medications
    Final goal - to get to about 180 pounds by 2014
    NEW GOAL - When I can start a new journal called "Your dad is not so fat!"

    Your Dad is So Fat

    When we make it, the pot is half meat, 3/8 peppers and onions, and the rest is tomato and spices. The meat is usually bison, chuck, and either venison or lamb. The peppers are (from weakest to hottest) bell, poblano, hatch, jalapeno, chipotle, serrano, and habanero. I keep meaning to try a tomatillo version and forgetting.

    One of the cool things about living in FL... the really good selection of chillies available in every grocery store, including good fresh, dried, and smoked peppers. <3

    IMO every pot of chili deserves some pasilla and ancho action for depth of flavor. And chipotle too of course...

    Those are both in my (homemade) chili powder.

    Nice. They get over looked too much and they add so much.

    I just get the whole dried ones, hot soak to reconstitute, then mince to a fine paste-ish consistency.
