Game-Day Chili... after the game.
n2-Anpan OMP!!
So, no Wii Fit this weekend. Actually, on a semi-related note, the cable box seems to be broken. Not like we watch a lot of TV, but man - no evening news when we eat dinner? X_X;

At least we have the elgato eyeTV Hybrid hooked up to the MacPro in the workroom. ^^

And also, no Super Bowl party for us. BUT! I did make some awesome chili. I totally recommend this recipe from Coconut & Lime. The 10+ hours of cook-time is totally worth it. The hard part is looking for all the spices. I have no clue where to find ground chipotle and jalapenos... much less what "yellow hot sauce" is? We subbed in fresh jalapenos and canned chipotle and dashed in a bunch of green Tabasco.

Oh, I also used this recipe for the montreal seasoning. (Another thing I'd never heard of before either. o_o;)

I think next time, I'll leave the seeds out from the chipotle - but it had a really nice mix of sweet, smokey, spicy, and savory. I even ate the kidney beans - which I am not particularly fond of. I'll definitely make this again.

As for this morning, I got up early so I could drive myself to my dentist's office for implant impressions. I still get the jitters before getting into the car, but calmed down to some degree en route. I still have to get used to reverse parking - but thankfully, the parking structure was pretty quiet and empty at the time, so I didn't have to worry about cars on either side of upcoming traffic. o_o;

Impressions went well, drive home went well, but right down the street to my house, my cellphone starts ringing. It's my dentist's office telling me that I need to make an appointment ASAP with this other office that custom makes crowns... which is literally across the street from my dentist's office. So, I have to go back sometime later this week. I hope I can schedule it for Friday, as I have an eye appointment that afternoon, in the same area.

Oddly enough all those spices are available at almost any grocery store here, including the one right across the street from my house. Now if only I liked spicy foods like chilli....
