    Default Cookout tonight, rain or shine

    It's the end of the school year. About 50 students/faculty/staff will
    gather at the p'rfesser's house. Ten pounds of chili has been in one
    slow cooker since 6am, to top about 100 hot dogs. Baked beans in the
    other slow cooker. Coleslaw, brownies, odds and ends, plus whatever
    the attendees want to bring. Real beer for those who like beer, light
    beer for those who like to pee.

    It may be pouring rain but the party will go on regardless.

    We ain't worrying about cholesterol or blood sugar tonight...

    Tomorrow I am going to an outdoor wedding/reception where it is likely
    to rain. It is my job to cut a 300+# cooked pig up into 200 plates
    of pork.

    Is this frigging rain EVER going to end? It's gone on for days and days
    now. I can't get into the garden again today so I'm sealing and polishing
    granite counter tops. Big whoop of a day ;(

    Sounds like a fun plan. :-)

    Most of the schools in our area are closed for 2 weeks due to the panic
    the press is so good at spreading.

    Send it our way.

    Even with the recent rains, they are still implementing mandatory
    watering restrictions.

    Oh, absolutely. Unfortunately I cut up only one large (Texas sweet)
    onion...and it wasn't gone by evening's end. Some people just don't
    know what's good.

    It's almost 10pm here. You'd think with students involved that the
    party would run another four hours. But everyone is gone. These folk
    are a mild bunch, I fear.

    No 'music' from the chili. When I make chili for hot dogs, there
    ain't no beans in it.

    The p'rfesser has eaten and drunk far, far more than he should. And
    tomorrow morning he's giving makeup exams. Ugh. When you schedule
    makeups for the saturday AM after the last day of class, usually no
    one requests them... :-) (that's how I've gotten out of preparing
    makeups for at least five years).

    Sorry... not much of a recipe, but here ya go. 6-7 lb ground chuck
    is browned and the fat poured off. (Broth is separated and poured
    back in.) Add about 3 lb chopped onions, couple of tbsp kosher salt,
    five or six cloves of garlic, minced. About 1/2-3/4 cup dark chili
    powder. About a teaspoon of black pepper (from my NEW Keytop pepper
    mill!)

    Cook for a few hrs in a 5 qt slow cooker. Add some more onion. Taste.
    Adjust. Cook some more. Careful not to overcook or you get a 'burnt'
    taste. I turn it off around 1:30, then back up to high around 4pm to
    be ready at 5-5:30.

    It must have been reasonably edible, cuz there's just enough
    left---maybe two cups---to make chili con carne on Sunday...

    I am very pleased to notethat most of the light beer is still in its
    cans. The wheat beer and honey porter and other real beers were
    snatched up first. There is hope for some of these young people.

    we had several piles of cut wood, so monday I announced we will have a
    bon fire friday nite. well I emailed a few friends and said bring
    some meat and we'll grill it and I had chips for side (we are on a
    budget). we had more people than I had planned for and most didn't
    bring anything - but at the end of the nite it did not matter! we had
    such a nice evening and no left overs to store. the only problem - we
    ran out of ice and plastic cups/plates. i'm on my 3rd dishwashing
    from last nite.
