Family Recipe Friday, Altered.

Family Recipe Friday, Altered

 My Mother made awesome Chili.  Most of us in the family love to eat this dish.

 Husband can no longer have much tomato, so I have worked on some variants that maybe

 will taste good.

 Today I think I have accomplished it. He ate two bowls and really liked it.

 Here is what I did.

 Ingredients:
 1/4 of Green pepper, chopped
  1/3 of red pepper, chopped
  1/3 of large yellow onion, chopped
  2 large stalks of celery, chopped
  simmered in olive oil and then added 1/4 c water to finish semi softening.

  added diced 6 oz of cooked steak, 3/4 cup
  added diced 8 oz of cooked veal, 1 cup

  when the vegtables were softened a bit I added a
  1/2  tsp. chopped garlic from jar
  1/3 cup of water so items not stick

   letting it simmer,

    then I tried these new beans husband bought

   Bush's canned Chili Beans ( great northern beans)
   it has mild chili flavor. I wanted to use Black Beans but daughter won't eat them.
   After adding the beans I added about 2/3C of water so it would be semi soupy but not runny.
   I let it simmer until flavor mixed about an hour.

   Took about 1/2 hour to prepare with the cutting, chopping, browning and melding all together.
    Let it simmer low for another half hour and it was ready.

    Amazed at how good it tasted for a  tomato less chili.
     I love a good  hot spicy chili with tomato but have learned to adjust since tomato is taboo for        
     husband.

    I would add more Chili powder for stronger flavor but he was very happy. I used to use Jalapeno's
    at least one chopped into the fresh ingredients.seedless.

Seminar's are they worth it? I think the proof is in the Blog

We are preparing for our annual Fall Seminar.  At one time we did two a year but it is better done in workshops so we ended up deciding.

 So every month we give you a work shop either at the Bonita-Sunnyside Library, generally 1st  Saturday afternoons 1 to 4pm or Lemon Grove Library on 3rd Wednesday, evening 6 to 8 pm.. Randy does a Breaking Brick Walls event once a month on  2nd Wednesdays. 12 to 2 pm, CVL on 4th.  We do all this for free.

We are a service orientated organization.  So when our funds were built up we opted to start funding small Scholarships for the Sweetwater Union High School District Seniors.

The Scholarships have grown from a $75. to $500 and some times two of them or something in between.  The money we make at our Seminar is what is put towards the scholarship or scholarships.

Many are not sure a Seminar is worth the $45 member or $50 non member fees.

I am sharing with you that many places charge $45 for one hour and some charge as much as $90 for an hour of information.

Personally having never gone to a Seminar and not come home with a good bit of new ideas and plans for research. I believe in Seminars.

The one planned has four topics.  The going rate being from $45 to $90 a talk that would be $360. at the high end and $180 at the lower end.  Plated hot meal $20. Not having to juggle food, cane, drink etc makes it an excellent meal.

We are only charging $45 for members and $50 for non members.  You can also join our society and get our newsletter and all the information from our workshop events and not live here.  Many places do not have Genealogical or Historical Groups and some are very minimalistic.  Our  dues are very reasonable.

We have moved from everything manual to Wild Apricot for help on events etc. You can post questions and learn of coming events way ahead with this feature.

Taking $180 + dinner and deduct your fee and you are getting more than half price off the fee for attending a multi Seminar.

Here is  hoping you will sign up to learn about Italian, Scottish, German and the Ancestral Migrating Patterns to find Church Records.
