Mmmm, I had some she-crab soup for lunch today. I bet those crab cakes will be yummy

It was Vikings at Cowboys today. The Vikings almost didn't lose.

It was an easy decision once I decided to make Texas Chili today. But o my. So many recipes. To avoid controversy I decided, no beans. I bought a pretty good lookng chuck roast to cut into bite size pieces. I've only ever made chili with coarse or regular grind burger, so this is a treat. In the end I didn't use any recipe. I was going to make cornbread to go with, except I made a late breakfast waffles and sausages. Think I'll hold off on the cb today.

Wish I was hungry because after a long slow simmer it tastes pretty good.

I always us cubes of chuck for chili. It makes a significant difference.

Thanks for looking everyone.

"She crab soup"... I'll have to Google that one, GG.

I don't recall what type of meat I used a couple years ago, Whiskas, when Cleveland played Houston I think, but the chili was pretty good. Served in a torn open Frito bag like Texans (apparently) like to do. Texas chili is good. But really most chili is good It's a nice changeup, like Cincie chile.

Baltimore is done and over with for another year (whew).
On the menu was Maryland crab cakes, oysters on the half shell and Maryland oyster stew. First time shucking my own oysters, but it made more sense than buying a container of them.

We got the He Crabs when we went to Baltimore with Baby Bro and his wife the Princess years ago. Newspaper and boy crabs (I didn't look too closely) boiled in Old Bay, lots of labor to get the meat, but they were really good.

For some reason, the girl crabs are saved for She Crab soup. What up with that?

Great spread, pac. I have to say, when you set a goal for yourself you don't skimp. You could have gone with just the crab cakes or the oyster stew but you went the extra mile and created a full course dinner.
