Super Bowl of Chili


millions of people are watching a sporting event in New Jersey while I am cooking…but both of us are hoping for a fine super bowl. The seahawks hope they can fly past the bucking broncos, but i hope to eat a great bowl of chili.

at half time of my game:

so far, my statistics are:

1 Can of Hormel Chili Mix- With Beans (including chilies)

1 Can of No Salt (low salt) diced Tomatoes

2 stalks of celery- sliced into small chucks

ground black pepper to taste

1 tablespoon sage

1 tablespoon garlic powder

i started cooking at about medium heat. then, while it started to bubble a bit, i added a chopped up small sweet onion, 2 tablespoons Kerrygold Butter, a dash of italian seasoning (oregano and basil mainly), and one handful of curly parsley…

and while the seahawks are now ahead of the broncos 15-0, i am waiting for my chili to cool enough to eat. one thing i can do- check on my next project…

...a “brew” of 1/2 of a lemon sliced, a couple of cups of sliced ginger, and two tablespoons of raw honey, mixed in water. i’ll let it sit in the refrigerator for awhile and make a strong wintertime tonic full of vitamin C and good for fending off winter-time illnesses like sore throat, cough, etc. 

my chili is just right now; time to eat! enjoy your evening/night/day…whatever it is where you are…

Slan go foill…

    What a take on superbowl….although you lost me at “celery”. Bleck. But a man who cooks is a rare jewel worth his weight in…celery 🙂

  2. A jigger of good rum is what you need in that lemonade, my friend.

  3. Omg the chili looks so good, I made burritos today. And I make this kind of lemonade too, best drink for anytime. But when I add the ginger I also add cinnamon and heat it up, so its more like green tea does wonders for a sore throat, which I had all weekend 😦

    Hmm now I am wanting a good pot of Texas Chili myself, wonder if I have all the ingredients for it? Will have to check on that. And as for the Suiperbowl, finally the Seahawks won. Way to go! I was born in Seattle, and it was nice to finally see that team win. Go hawks!

    Looked very healthy and I would have enjoyed some of your chili! The vitamin C concoction sounds sweet and good for fighting colds. I would also sip it warm, believe it or not! Smiles, Robin
