JD's Blog, a place where sight and sound have no meaning, where time and space are illusions, and where a DJ  air personality posts his slightly off-kilter take on this, that, and the other thing.
I've loved radio since I was a kid and consider myself extremely lucky to get paid to do it. I'm a 2002 graduate of the DC campus of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I play several musical instruments and write books for fun. And I'm a huge fan of the Philly teams: the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers.

My Chili

I don't know about you, but when it's really cold for a long time, I crave a good hearty hot meal. And there's no better good hearty hot meal than chili. Now my chili will never win any cookoffs. It's not fancy, but I like it. And I'd like to share it with you here.

1.5 lbs of ground beef (I use 73% lean, but use whatever you want; I use that ratio because it's on sale the most at the supermarket)
1.5 lbs of country sausage (the sausage gives it incredible flavor)
2 15oz cans tomato sauce
2 8oz cans pinto beans 
3 oz chili powder
1 oz cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon black pepper

Brown beef and sausage together in the biggest pot you have. Drain. Add sauce and spices. Mix thoroughly. Add beans. Cook over medium heat for about two hours, stirring frequently. Lower heat. Simmer for another hour, still stirring often. Serves 2-4. I recommend serving with either cornbread or Fritos scoops and cheddar. Add sour cream if you're feeling saucy. I promise it will help you combat the winter blues. Cheers.
