Tailgating Chili!

There’s something about September, Farmers Markets and college football that screams “Make Chili!”. Well, that and a coworker’s comment and a quick review of chili cook-offs from the past. We scored a peck of Beefsteak tomatoes at the Rockford Farmers Market with the intention of canning a few quarts of diced tomatoes. Some of those lovely maters were reserved for a small batch of fresh sausage chili. We added some amazing poblano peppers from our ingredient quest last weekend, along with a bunch of secret items. Hopefully it turns out OK. The color of these tomatoes is testimony to the freshness of the homegrown fruit this time of year 🍅🍅🍅

I am NOT a Chef!

Recently, I’ve been reading a book by Anthony Bourdain called “Medium Raw”, and it’s made me feel like I should disclaim myself a bit more thoroughly.  I an NOT a true Chef, at least in the truest sense of Chef as the term applies in the culinary world.  Self-proclaimed foodie and home cook I am…but if I had to run a restaurant as true Chefs do, I’d probably be in way over my head.  So now that we’ve got that little item cleared up…

READ THIS BOOK!!  Sorry for shouting, but Tony’s take on several culinary topics are just so very worth the read.  He sums up Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma so accurately that I would recommend his chapter on “Meat” as required reading in every school in America.  So without a lot of fanfare, go out and pick up a copy of this book – you’ll be thanking me after you’re done with it, I assure you!  Here’s a link to where you can purchase the book – http://www.amazon.com/Medium-Raw-Bloody-Valentine-People/dp/0061718955
