oh yes, chef ben has been in the kitchen...  aromas of toasted spices and browned beef.  happy day.

for superbowl, my hubby leaned on our go-to guy, mr. tyler florence.  he flipped to the "guy's game night" section and selected a perfectly fitting prime rib chili.  holy moly folks.  so, so good.

he lovingly stirred that pot of goodness until the meat was fork-tender and all those flavors melded into a thick stew of rich deliciousness.  and not a bean to be found!  this chili is not for wimps.  the paleos would be so proud...

and then, after hours of simmering away, we sat down in front of the fireplace on a dreary day to warm ourselves with this deeply satisfying dish and to watch some guys toss the pigskin.  not too shabby.

thanks honey.  until next time...
