How A Good Pot Of Chili Can Really Ruin Your Life

Aww cute right???

No you are dead wrong. This dog is a representation of how I like to self inflict pain on myself.

This dog likes to think of the worst possible ways she can give me the middle paw... literally.

Most recently was last night when she snuck upstairs to throw up on my freshly laundered (with new washing machine) duvet and sheets...Suck...

She once destroyed the entire back of an expensive wing chair for fun. Another time she decided to take a dump on a brand new Anthropolgie dress just for kicks (right after she got in trouble)

But the worst... For me... was instigated by my husband... Who decided it was a good idea to feed her some leftover chili meat.

Really Toby??? Really??? Why don't you just set a bomb off in her intestines!!!!

Needless to say she got into my lap and stupid me thought she was being affectionate...


She laid a monster sized one on me...as if to say screw you mommy....in which my husband said "oh no I hope I didn't hurt her too bad"


Regardless... Enjoy this Chili recipe and feel free to share without any furry companions.

Just sayin...

Recipe (adapted from Michael Chiarello's Chili Recipe)

11/2 pounds stew beef
1 cup crushed tomatoes
1 med chopped onion
3 cloves garlic
2 beers ( I used Full Moon)
12 ounces chicken stock
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 tablespoons Chili powder
4 tbsp Cumin
1 oz Chocolate
1 tbsp Cinnamon
3 cans Black Beans
1 cup Dry Polenta (not instant)

Combine Stew meat, 1/2 cup polenta, 4 tablespoons chili powder, 2 tablespoons and pinch of salt in a bowl. In Dutch oven or pot fry up meat in 2 to 3 batches. Remove meat and add chopped onion and garlic. Sweat until translucent and add beer, stock and crushed tomato. Stir and add remaining spices and polenta and beef. Bring to a boil and then drop to a simmer for 2 hours.

After 2 hours add beans and chocolate. Heat beans through and enjoy!

Get Crazy and add some corn muffins to the mix!

Do not give to bowser no matter how sad their eyes look.

  1. I had a puppy take a massive crap on me once. It was not pleasant, especially because I was wearing shorts. Why is it that the one who is responsible for the crime is usually not the one affected by it?
