And it was a rousing St Patrick’s Day celebration and birthday party!! The turn out was superb. The food was awesome as usual and the beer/ale was outstanding! Glad they are so close to us – about 1 1/2 blocks. A nono brewery produces less than 5oo cases per year. They are small but they are sure delicious! Here are some photos from the evening. They had to put a tent up outside in addition to the patio seating. It must be a Rite of Spring, because it sure did feel like it. Happy Birthday Cloud 9! Here’s to many more! You are definitely a 4+-Star Pub (Out of 5-Stars). Love it!
Today was the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl here in Boise at the BSU Stadium. So, we needed to have something for our small Tailgate Party. Maybe potatoes? Yes, but with what? How about with my Mom’s Chili Con Carne Modified over a good, baked potato. (The photo to the left is the dish in the crockpot!) Wow! It was great! and it did bring back some memories of her making the chili. I just had to modify it because Robin can not eat sweet green peppers. So I modified Mom’s recipe and used Poblanos that I fire roasted on the grill. And most of this was locally grown: the beef, potatoes, onions and peppers. The tomatoes were not. Here are some photos with the Chili over a fresh Baked Potato. Enjoy!
