This was originally posted to Facebook, knowing that more of Shelby’s friends and relatives would find it there before they would find it on my blog.
So proud of Shelby, she has recently been demonstrating so much maturity and responsibility… if I coulda been half of who she is gonna be……. /;^) You Go Girl.
We spent some time this afternoon at the Swan Creek shooting range, brushing up on firearm and range safety. Had some lunch too.. She has a good eye, and a steady hand. Little girlz’a growin up. Makes a Daddy proud, to see her so confident .!. /;^) — with Shelby Anne Sieg.
Breaking in the Citadel (Chiappa) M1-22LR
Swan Creek range AL_DCNR
A good eye, and a steady aim. Such determination.
Even the old man got off a few rounds
Not as interested in the 9mm CPX2, kinda loud.
Firearm & range safety : practice & confidence is valuable
We appreciate all the FB friends that have LIKEd and COMMENTd on the post.
It was a kinda-drizzly gray spring day, seemed like a good time to make chili.
It was a good day for chili, with a few slight mods to the previous recipe :
1 or 2 pounds ground beef (I like it pretty lean)
1/2 of a sweet-yellow onion; chopped
only 1 teaspoon minced garlic this time
Brown the beef with the chopped onion and garlic; drain fat, if any.
Add 1 small (4 oz) can of diced green chile peppers
32 oz. carton of beef broth (I use Swanson)
one 14-1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes; undrained
1 small (6 oz) can tomato paste
one 14-1/2 oz. can unseasoned black beans; drained and rinsed
two 14-1/2 oz. cans pinto beans; drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon each of cinnamon, allspice, cumin, oregano, and salt.
cover & simmer 1-1/2 to 2 hours, stirring enough to keep it from getting bored
Its hard to beat good chili.
And as I avoid butter (actually all dairy), I slice some 5 grain Italian bread and brush them lightly with a little olive oil – then a dash or two of garlic salt….
pop em into the oven under the broiler to get a little toasty.
Only thing left to add was a few cans of cold beer
(not in the chili silly, in the belly).
