Life is destroying my life.

I have been swamped.

With that being said theaveragechef is moving. Tumblr is great for cats. If you like what you see join me.

Lamb Chilli
It’s cold now so eat something hot.
That’s it. I don’t have another witty opening.
Lamb Chilli
Ingredients
1.5 lbs of ground lamb 
3-4 large garlic cloves, small dice.  
.5 red onion, medium dice.  
.5 white onion, medium dice. 
2 red peppers, medium dice.
1 green pepper,  medium dice.  
1 large can of plum tomatoes -roughly pureed. Tomato chunks are good.
1 lbs of red kidney beans (you’ve got two options : buy them in a can or buy them dried in bulk.  If your beans are dry you must soak then overnight to 1. soften them for a reduced cooking time 2. to reduce the gassiness of the bean).
1 tbsp thyme 
1 tbsp oregano 
2 tsp paprika
2 cinnamon bark (piece)
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp butter (unsalted)
2 cups of water
Salt
Pepper
Directions
In butter sweat onions and garlic until soft (4-5 minutes).
Add peppers and allow them to cook until they soften.
In a large pot (or crock pot) add pureed tomatoes, thyme, oregano, paprika, cinnamon bark, and bay leaves and bring up to a boil.
Remove onions, peppers, and garlic from pan and add to your pot. Allow vegetables to simmer.
Add lamb to large pot (or crock pot).  
Cook for 1 hour on a simmer. Occasionally stirring.
At the one hour mark add your kidney beans and allow the chili for 15 more minutes. 
Don’t cook the kidney beans for more than 15 minutes or they will become mushy. If your kidney beans are pre cooked shorten the time by 5 minutes. You want the kidney beans to be kidney beans. 
Why do we need water? To drink. What kind of damn question is that? Alternatively if you are NOT using a crock pot, you must gradually add half a cup of water every 25 minutes to the pot because moisture will be evaporating and will compromise your chili.
Remove the bay leaf. I promise you if you don’t and someone bites it you’re going to have a physical altercation.
Salt. Pepper. Season dat, season dat. Taste dat.
Good? Serve it to ya family. 
Bon Apetit

Why does everyone hate Monday? What did Monday ever do to anyone other than be a fully functional day of the week?  Nothing. Mondays are a great day,  it’s the beginning of a new fucking week.  #StopHatingMonday

I NEED YOUR HELP.

I can post recipes all damn day. 

Well… not all day ..but all the time but they don’t mean a thing if no one sees them. I need your help. Promote me. Promote this blog. Promote cooking, and not only my blog, other food blogs. You claim you like food but all you do is like pictures of donuts and burgers?

Donuts are delicious but grow up.

I’ll teach you how to make your own fucking donuts.

My blog needed a change. One day I came across Thug Kitchen. I don’t know who runs it or who created it but thank you. I was always taught that you have to be very formal and food blogs are cute and mommy oriented. Fuck that. An original ass idea and it has inspired me to reflect my personality in my blog, whether it be through sarcasm or my thousands of repetitive comparisons to rappers. Why come back?. I gave up on this blog. Said fuck it, then I realized….

Our generation has forgotten food.

Our generation doesn’t know what food is.

We don’t cook, we don’t buy groceries, we don’t do SHIT.

Why?

Y’all lazy.

Food is heaven. 

Come fuck with an angel.
