    You had me at bacon wrapped...

    :lol:  DK, good point on having to make it. 

    A good chili might be a great thing.  Best chili recipes?

    I don't really have a chili recipe... I just throw in whatever I have/am in the mood for.  Mainly just the usual tomato sauce base, ground turkey, a variety of beans (two or more of dark red, light red, pinto, navy, black-eyed peas), some chopped chilis, tomatoes, & onions and various spices.  One thing I always do, though, is throw in a big gob of peanut butter. Not only does it act as a thickening agent, but it helps sweeten out the heat too.  Cuz I like my chili spicy, but others aren't nearly as adventurous.

    Same friend that made the bacon wrapped jalapenos also recently made a pretty freakin awesome chili with ground beef, brisket, spicy sausage, & bacon.

    Recipes? C'mon, man. If I knew the recipe, I'd have to make the dip. 

    It would have been nice if my wife got the buffalo chicken blue cheese dip recipe from my buddy's wife. I love buffalo wings, but the dip was a cleaner way to get the flavor and prevented getting sauce all over the remote when switching over to puppy bowl.
    Puppy Bowl!

    (you just gave yourself away, you know)

    These apps / foods sound amazing, even moreso that you're making them yourselves.

    Thread-related, I had pumpkin soup for the very first time yesterday and loved it.  Unfortunately, a couple hours later it hated my guts.

    If anybody is looking for an easy appetizer that will blow your nips off, I've got one.

    Cut hotdogs into 1 inch pieces, wrap in bacon, toothpick inserted and stood up in a pan (pie pan is a good option) crowded close but not touching much, and then generously sprinkle with brown sugar.  Bake them fuckers and enjoy.  Many folks do the same with water chestnuts, but hotdogs are way better, those things are beyond delicious.

    Sounds awesome w/mustard, I agree!

    No condiments necessary, the flavor is strong with this one!
    Seriously, mustard or ketchup would just get right in the way.

    Gonna have to take a look through this Super Bowl foodstuff.  Going to a party with family and friends who are all Eagles, so I have offered to make a bunch of stuff, but I don't think they want my dirty Giants hands anywhere on their party.  Though I may just do those hot dog and bacon guys.

    The wife's Italian family would likely disown her, but doing a pasta tonight dish I do a bunch.  Pasta with a super easy avocado sauce.  The avocado serves as a nice creamy base.  Throw some garlic in a food processor and run it, toss in an avocado, salt, pepper, and some fresh lemon juice.  Pour in some olive oil as you go until it's the consistency you want and mix with the pasta.  So good.

    Sounds delicious, that's similar to our butternut squash pasta.

    My first attempt at hot sauce making.  (From a kit, not scratch.  That will come soon enough, this kit was a gift to me.)

    Chili made yesterday to reheat today.....chicken nuggets chilling in the fridge.  Pigs in a blanket also chilling.  Going to fry up some tortilla chips.  Made a fresh batch of guac.  
    Some ghost pepper cheese slices to go with Ritz.  
    Beer time shortly. 
    Cook up the shit in a few hours.

    Awesome!  What kind of varieties do you have there?  I see some mustard and that black one, Asian?

    Damn, sounds like a nice variety!

    Maybe we should think about doing a Ten Club hot sauce exchange thingy jiggy of some type.
    I'm going big next year, my wife ate 2 jars of the Scotch Bonnets mustard, the gallons of Carolina Reaper BBQ sauce we made have become quarts, and I've gone through 3 bottles of Louisiana style.  Next year is going to be somewhere around 10 or more gallons of sauces all together if the pepper crop does well.  
    A kit seems like a good idea, simplify things.  Recipes are hard because you seemingly never have the amount of peppers the recipe calls for.  Scaling the recipes up and down is too mathy for me and I end up just winging it.

    Gallons!  Wowzer.
    Food was excellent yesterday - I am sure everyone here had some good stuff







    The pile of empty beer cans was impressive as well

    This girl that lives up the street from me made vegan cheese dip for our friend's Super Bowl party yesterday.  She said you boil potatoes and carrots until soft, put in a blender with a little bit of water, olive oil, nutritional yeast, spices and blend on high speed.  She added some Frank's Red Hot for some buffalo flavor.

    Honest to god if she had not said a word about it being vegan, I would have never known.  It was as good as any nacho cheese sauce I've ever had.

    Fresh chicken cutlet
    Fress Mozz
    Prosciutto
    Flash fried artichokes
    Arugala pesto balsamic glaze

    We did a really nice Michelin started starred restaurant in Florence last year. It was an awesome experience and delicious but I gotta say, the main thing I remember about it is how much I paid. There are a good 3 or so other dinners from that trip that I remember in more detail.

    The wife’s due date is Valentine’s Day, though that’s likely not happening , but regardless we’re celebrating tonight with our annual tradition

    Cheese to start. A Brie and blue, pasteurized this year so nothing amazing

    Lobsters with a baked potato and some green beans.

    a nice California Chardonnay, with myself obviously drinking the bulk of it, though I’m sure the bride will sneak a small glass 

    Fuck yeah.
