Just off the top of my head...

1) States that do not have snow plows
2) People who have no idea how to drive in snow
3) People with very bad judgment insisting on driving in snow
4) Nazis

  • Just took me about two hours to drive 10 miles in NC.  I'm actually very lucky to have made it home.  People were already abandoning their vehicles and walking.

    You can't have beans in real chili. If it has beans it's a soup, stew or just beans.

    Never knew if this really happened or not, but I heard that some years ago, there was a snow storm in Chapel Hill. I assume "storm" meant 1-2". Anyway, they had no snow plows. Some genius figured out that all they had to do was open up the fire hydrants and spray it off. 

    Worked great! Until that night.  :D

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    2 and 3 are spot on. Take those people away, throw in some steep mountain roads, and it's a beautiful drive in the country! Taken last weekend with Hayhonker (Jason) behind me. No problems. No abandoned cars!

    Stay safe out there y'all.

  • I-85 in Durham is a virtual parking lot now.  People are going to start running out of gas.  Once that happens, it's game over man.  Game over.

    heres the real chili recipe :D served on boiled potatoes

    Molha à la mode de Pico
    Adapted from "Azorean Cuisine" by Zita Lima

    The biggest adaptation here was to use our new favorite toy, the pressure cooker. We just got the Fagor 3-in-1 Electric Multi-Cooker and have already embarked upon a love affair. It reduces the cooking time drastically. But, if you do not have a pressure cooker, simply simmer the meat for a couple hours, until it is cooked through and begins to break down. But in the pressure cooker, the meat turns out tender as butter. 

    Piri-piri, or malaguetta, is a very spicy varietal of birdseye pepper. I've subbed in red pepper flake to good effect, offering just enough burn to keep it interesting, but not so much as to scare off company. Our neighbor says in her family they don't use any pepper, and a little more cinnamon, so feel free to tinker with the spicing.

    Want a copy of this book? Well, you'd better get your own Azorean neighbor then, cuz they don't sell it on Amazon.

    2 lbs chuck, cut into bite-size cubes
    5-6 garlic cloves, crushed or minced
    1 Tbsp red pepper flake
    2 Tbsp Kosher salt

    2 Tbsp olive oil
    1 large onion, chopped
    3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 Tbsp tomato paste
    1-2 c. white wine and/or stock
    1 tsp allspice
    1 bay leaf
    1/2 tsp cumin
    1 cinnamon stick

    Toss the meat, garlic, pepper flake and salt in a large bowl, combine well and let rest in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. The meat will turn a brilliant shade of red.

    Seasoned beef

    Sauté the onions and garlic in the bottom of the pressure cooker until golden. Add the tomato paste and cook another minute or so, then add the wine and spices. Add the meat, close up the pressure cooker and cook on high heat for 20 minutes. Allow pressure to drop normally; rapid-releasing pressure will toughen meat. When pressure has fully released, open the cooker. Skim off fat that has risen to the top. Bring remaining sauce back to the boil if you want to thicken or reduce it.

    According to the cookbook, molha is traditionally served with boiled potatoes. We served it over buttered noodles and some roasted romanesco, and that was very nice indeed.

    @fishlessman You are correct, you can put chili on anything. And most due.

    A traditional Texas Red will not have beans or tomatoes.

    I'm not trying to convince anyone either way.

    But I would say the Molha à la mode de Pico is a stew.
