Notwithstanding the (still unproven) culinary misadventures from last week, it’s a new month and that means a new recipe to try out.
The month of May provides a special treat, in that it is also birthday BBQ month. So, I thought I would try combining the two to make one impressive and sumptuously logical dish for May: Chili!
Normally, I would plod through the internet food sites for a recipe or two that I might combine to make my own, but this time I’m going to first try a new twist on the idea, by putting up an additional post on my Facebook page soliciting recipes from my Facebook friends.
While not everyone likes chili and only a subset of those make chili, I’m betting I have at least a couple of Facebookians who have made their own and maybe one of those actually has a recipe (as opposed to doing it from feel, as I do my BBQ rib rub).
Absent that, I will go the tried and true route over the internet and then test the whole thing before the big shindig to make sure I don’t kill everyone (or, at the very least, burn out their stomach linings).
While my younger niece rarely shows up for these events, since she works weekends, I will also check out a non-meat version (ugh), since she’s a vegetarian (ugh).
And if any of you non-Facebook blog peeps want to send me a recipe, feel free to contact me directly via the email on the site. I don’t think my blog allows for attachments, but what do I know, I’ve only been running it for eight years.
New recipe and new birthday…something’s gotta give!
