a burning desire

If you take a look at the following picture, let me tell you, it is not animated. Your brain is making it move. To test this, stare at one spot for a couple seconds and everything will stop moving. Or look at the black center of each circle and it will stop moving. But move your eyes to the next black center and the previous will move after you take your eyes away from it.



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I'm no longer managed by alcohol

that my (writing about) Gratitude for today is being replaced this CHILI RECIPE.
Syd inspired me to copy and paste it here, just for you guys.

1-2 lbs ground round
1 can tomato paste
1 – 10 oz can tomato
1 can peeled tomato
1 large green pepper
1 large white onion
2 stalks celery
2 jalapeno peppers
½ potato
1 can Budweiser (optional, of course)
1 shot olive oil
1 envelope chile mix
1 envelope taco mix
½ tsp oregano
½ tsp thyme
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp bay leaves
½ tsp grated parmesian
½ tsp salt

lightly brown the hamburger, drain grease
add the meat and tomato to water and bring to boil
simmer for 1 hour (leave top of container ¼ open to allow
condensation to evaporate)

Add:
Chopped pepper, onion, celery, jalapeno, diced potato, chile mix, taco mix, olive oil, spices

Add enough water to make it like soup, bring to boil, simmer 1 hour

Now add the beer and parmesian

After 1 hour, let it cool and put in refrigerator over night before serving


Get rich quick! Count your blessings!

I already told Syd those chili spices repeat on me thus rendering me way too vulnerable to indigestion.

When I was looking for help with dual disorder I didn’t know where to turn. I finally went with this center and they helped me save my life.
