There's always another day to make mole, but when you need roast chicken - you NEED roast chicken! :) And I'm glad you survived your outing. Also, yes to cocktails. I've got a big ole box of wine, so I'm set.

Ugh. Stupid blizzard! I'm always beyond paranoid that we're going to lose power. It turns me into a jumpy little kid. And LastCig is at band practice, because - blizzard.

Awesome! I'm glad it was good. I've got to give it a shot. February is definitely chili weather. :)

It sounds like a solid and delicius recipe, minus the insane amount of vinegar. When I make chili, I cheat and use a little pickled jalapeno juice. It adds a little heat and acidity.

I totally dig the amount of fennel seed in that. I don't think I've ever put fennel in chili before, and it sounds good.

But I'd add the vinegar a tablespoon at a time and taste it. :)

Thank you, Sweet Jenna. :) If you don't have fresh blueberries, dried would be fine. But they would be sweeter than fresh blueberries, so I'd use a lot less. I'd probably finely dice them, and use about a teaspoon of them.

I just love the flavor that even a small bit of acid/citrus brings to a dish. It really rounds it out to me. It brings out the other flavors, without overwhelming them.

But holy hell! A 1/4 cup of vinegar in a recipe? That seems insane to me. Do you have a link to the recipe? I'd love to check it out.

It just makes good sense. :)

It's a Saturday night in February. Being attached to the couch is the first priority!

Dear Mods,

Sorry it's in so late, but there's a very warming Recipe Sunday in pending.

Your Pal,
