Back last week sometime, my friend Shelly called to see if I wanted to meet at Starbucks for a visit and I said sure but would she like to come have a bowl of chili first? She did and we had a nice visit here and then went to Starbucks and visited some more. She was kind enough to say she really liked the chili and was I ever going to post that recipe to my blog. I said I definitely would and now here a week has gone by and so my apologies to Shelly! But now, I've just put a pot of what may or may not turn out to be edible into the oven to cook for a couple of hours. I found a nice half pound package of stew meat at the store a couple days ago and thought "I'll try that with the Moroccan spices and see what I think". So that's what's cooking now - it sure does smell good but I'm not sure how it will turn out. I never seem to be real successful with stew beef - it always seems to remain hard, unchewable lumps of meat. But try, try again is my motto!
Anyway, here is the link to the chili recipe which starts out with how I cook my pot roast since I now use leftover pot roast meat to make the chili. And, of course, I've put it in my Recipe Collection index also.
Any questions - let me know...

- When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!
P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).
I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.
