It's Time

Much has happened since the last time I blogged.
I took on some new responsibilities at work which ended up dominating my life from April until. . .well, they're still dominating it. I was finally offered those new responsibilities as an official job, and accepted the position, although they still haven't filled my old position so I'm still doing both. I finally started playing with flank steak, and fell in love. I got a smoker, and BBQ was made. I brewed a much better chile beer, a pasilla chile porter, and I loaded it into my 4 mini-kegs and drove it all the way to a chile farm South of Indianapolis to engage in chilehead insanity with a bunch of other crazy folks. Also made some pork tacos while I was there. Too much to try and recount it all, but it's time to get this here blog back on track. And we're going to start with chili. Not the slacker method, this one is going to be awfully complicated. It will require numerous steps, and it will hopefully take several days to complete it all, but the results will be worthwhile and they will be documented. I finally got a digital camera, folks, so we'll start having some visual aids around here too. Well, getting back to work for now, but here's your's truly hard at work on some pork tacos. Chili starts soon. . .

    Well congrats on the job, the new camera and the additional time now that you are not doing two jobs! I can vouch for the great pork tacos (having been one of the fortunate chileheads at the super secret chile meca open fields 2005 event)... and the porter was exceptional! Can't wait to see what you do with flank steak as it is a personal favorite to cook with!

    Welcome back!!! Reader number... humm what reader number was I???

    I think you were #3, but hopefully it will all sort itself out one of these days! Not sure what's going on with the big gap between the title and the body of the most recent post, but I'll have to work on that this weekend. But first, chili!
