It’s around 1:00 PM on a chilly, bright day in Pittsburgh and the Old Soldier is at Del’s Bar & Italian Restaurant having a couple of draft beers at the bar. Amy is behind the bar. She’s a working archeologist. She works out of the Carnegie Museum in my neighborhood of Oakland where the University of Pittsburgh is located.
The Old Soldier will leave here soon and get back to his apartment to put on a crock pot of chili con carne.
First brown the ground beef, chop it up, then throw it into the crock pot of diced green peppers, tomato sauce, cooked rice, kidney beans with plenty of chili powder, salt and pepper and a couple of small hot peppers. It will last a week.
You can’t beat it with a stick.
This blog is about news, relationships, sexuality, blogging, writing and the pain and joy of life.
