 I have discovered that I am a country girl at heart A weekend in Bradford

Dear Sally,

I have discovered that I am a country girl at heart. I like living in the city BUT nothing beats the sunset over snow-covered hills and the crisp country air.

Jesse and I were inspired by your soup the other day and decided to make chili on Saturday afternoon. Between the rain and the cold we really just wanted to curl up with something warm and delicious and relax. We picked up some ingredients for chili and started throwing I have discovered that I am a country girl at heart A weekend in Bradford things in a pan. We added a little bit of this and some of that and made a delicious spicy chili.

Hot Tamale Chili


2 cans crushed tomatoes
1 can red kidney beans I have discovered that I am a country girl at heart A weekend in Bradford
3 stalks celery
1/2 green pepper
3/4 yellow pepper
1/2 onion
2 tbsp. brown sugar

4 tbsp. Valentina hot sauce
4 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. red chili flakes
ground beef
olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp dijon mustard
3/4 cup chicken stock

 

1. Pour both cans of crushed tomatoes and chicken stock into a large soup pan and turn on medium heat.

2. Pour a small amount of olive oil into a frying pan and cook the garlic for about 2 minuted. Chop onion, peppers and celery into small pieces and add to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat till softened. Add to the crushed tomato.

3. Cook ground beef until no pink or liquid is left and also add to the tomato mixture. Open the kidney beans and pour half of the can into the pot. Crush the remaining half of the beans using a fork and pour them into the pot.

4. Bring the pot to a boil and stir everything together. Add the red pepper flakes, chili peppers, dijon and brown sugar. Simmer till all ingredients have blended. EAT!

Today God really spoke to me about some fears I have that are stopping me from furthering his kingdom and he gave me a nice little shove in the right direction. I realize that this has nothing to do with cooking but I know you would be able to appreciate his little nudge in our lives. I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

I love you so much and am truly blessed to have you in my life.

See you soon!

Jess

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
