this is like the hassle of breaking up
without the benefit of having ever dated

sometimes i feel like i'm the last one left
living in the real world


the midterm went swimmingly. i finished at the same time as the kanji krew. god, it feels good to be good at something.

i even checked my work (sort of).


the cold rain is ruining my beautiful autumn. fuck walking to class in that mess.

all my socks have holes in the toes. those little piggies are freezing!

my mom made me a big batch of chili to bring home. it's pretty bland, but it's hearty. now, if only i could figure out how to make it for myself...

i hope it stops raining soon, i need to go to the post office to mail some pachages.

are you looking for any recipe for chili, or your mom's? cause i can hook you up with a pretty good recipe...

this is as basic as it gets--which will be a grand jumping off point for further exploration. . .

1 med onion--chopped
1 each medium red and green bell pepper chopped
sweat these in a little dab o' oil--just until the onion is transparent
then toss in-
1 can of tomato paste--get that all incorporated-it's supposed to brown a little then toss in-
1 big can of stewed tomatoes
1 can of kidney beans
1 can of chili hot beans
(you can drain the bean juice off if you want)
then add--
3 cups of H20
let this simmer away for like an hour--then taste then season with whatever you want--go CRaZY. . .or something.
You can add meat to it if you want-like sirlion strips or hamburger or hell tofu--just cook it seperately and toss it in-with the tomatoes and beans.
I don't care for chili and this is the recipe I always start out with--good luck!

Easy "student" chili...for those who have no time to cook...
Ok, here's the cheap and easy "linsey" way to make chili.

1 can kidney beans $1
1 box macaroni $.59
1/2 lb lean hamburger meat (I like lauras lean beef @ marsh) $4.99
1 large can of tomato juice. $1.59
Chili powder seasoning. $1?

Boil macaroni in a pan at same time as you cook your meat in a large pot (they are seperate pans, of corse.)
When the meat is done, pour in the tomato juice and kidney beans and put chili powder in.
When the macaroni is done, drain it, add to the rest and warm a little.
Voila! Easy as pie chili. For like 10 day's supply for one person.
