I'm at the grocery store for Wite-out and an onion. #OddlySpecific #BadRecipe
Don't judge me - Glen Campbell

We partially settled my parents' estate last week. There wasn't a great amount of money, but I didn't want it all to sort of disappear into bills, vacation, and so forth, so I spent a goodly chunk on a really nice watch; something that I hope will become a sort of heirloom.

So, is it still chilli if there's no beans in it? Or is this a thing no one can agree on? I don't really care, I'm just curious.
I'm guessing this varies regionally. I think of chili as being defined more by the sauce. It can be beans, beans with meat or meat alone but there's a certain sort of tomato-chili-cumin sauce I associate with calling "chili". - Spidra Webster
In Texas chilli generally is all meat. No beans. So yeah, definitely regional. - Kirsten from Android
I've never been able to figure out exactly what chilli is. Savoury mince? Bolognese sauce? - Melly
It has MANY variations, Melly, but it's a tomato-based sauce or stew with red chili pepper powder being a major ingredient. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013... Ok. I figured the New Mexicans would use green chili peppers... - Spidra Webster
This chili was beef, onion, peppers and cheese. Tasty but it felt like eating meat sauce. I guess I'm used to beans being in chili, but I'm from the tropics and chili isn't really a thing. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I have a hard time imagining chili without beans, but I know such things exist. - John (bird whisperer)
Yeah, I grew up with the kind with beans. But I'd be perfectly fine with a high quality all-meat chili. I've only had the low grade meat chili that Tommy's puts on its chili burgers/dogs. - Spidra Webster
I've always had beans in my chili, unless it's hot dog chili out of a can. Looks like it's pretty controversial, though. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
It's like BBQ. Just one of those things United Statesians like to fight over. :) - Spidra Webster
My mom always made it with two kinds of beans - pinto and kidney - so that's typically how I do it. Definitely regional, though. Did you ever go to Hard Times Cafe when you were in the DC area, T-ra? They serve Texas style chili that was just meat, though you could have them add pink beans. Cincinnati style had beans. (Oddly enough I'd already decided to have turkey chili for dinner when I saw your post.) - Corinne L
Never went to Hard Times. It's on my list for visits. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Jayden won't eat beans so I make chili with just meat for his chili dogs and add a can of beans for me (I eat it in a bowl with rice). - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I am very much a bean-less chili advocate :P - Chris Topher
To make it even more confusing: chili doesn't have to have tomatoes at all. I make a white chili with ground turkey, navy beans, and green chiles. And a black bean chili that only has tomatoes as one of many ingredients, but they don't make up the base. - Kirsten from Android
Until some Texan applies for Protected Designation of Origin status for a particular recipe, chilli is whatever you like, so long as there's chillis ;) - Pete
^ that makes me wonder if there is a chili-less chili. - John (bird whisperer)
Indeed, John, I imagine there probably is. If you were to make your traditional chili recipe with all of the same ingredients, but leave out the chili/chili powder, wouldn't it still be considered chili? Since it's generally not the main ingredient, I can easily imagine making the "stew" without it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
It's the chili powder. Paprika, oregano, cumin, garlic, onion powder, cayenne pepper. That's how I make my chili powder and anything I use it in, I can call chili :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Chili NEVER has beans. There is a distantly-related dish called "Chili with Beans" but it's not Chili. Nor does chili ever have tomatoes; then it's spaghetti sauce. - Glen Campbell
Here's just one example of an award-winning chili recipe: http://www.esquire.com/feature... - Glen Campbell
My heart is with Glen on this: the best chili does not have beans. (Not Texan pride: I'm a Californian and proud of it.) - Walt Crawford
so what we learned is y'all got some strong feels about chili, and hey, that's totally ok. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

Just in case you were wondering, tickets to the French Open are expensive as all get out.
Open market prices? - bentley
Certainly not Masters expensive...? - Julian
Oui, open market. - Marie
I haven't ever priced the Masters. - Marie
Masters tickets are only $100 per round. (I assume you mean the golf tournament.) The waiting list for the Masters has been closed since 1987. By the way, if you are ever blessed to attend the Masters, a hotdog costs $1 and a soda is $0.50. They basically operate everything at cost. http://www.masters.com/en_US... - Glen Campbell

Yeah, we shoulda been on top of this decades ago. I blame Reagan for us being so far behind. - Spidra Webster
^ Reagan had no chance with oil at 20 $/bbl - Maхx Tee
He really had an animus against it, though. One of the first things he did was remove the solar panels Carter had put on The White House. - Spidra Webster
Solar efficiency during the Reagan era was < 3%. It was literally an order of magnitude more expensive than oil, and the production of solar panels was hideously environmentally damaging. - Glen Campbell

When people post about the date containing numerical sequences or other oddities, I always want to point out that "14" is really "2014" which spoils it. In related news, I am a horrible pedant. #saturdayff

The excitement over these "sequences" is lost on me. - Stephan from iPhone
Stephan, I think it's related to an attraction to round numbers and seeing faces in clouds. We are natural-born pattern detectors. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It's neither little endian nor big endian. #awkward - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Kevin's take also discounts the value of other types of sequences: 05/10/15, for example. - Fred Garvin from iPhone
And 01/01/17 is the next sequential prime day. - Louis Gray

Considering we don't really know when Jesus was born, it maybe really should be the year 2018 instead of 2014. I wish God would have had a digital camera with the date and time on it so that he could better document the birth of his son. - Joe

So as not to gum up Pete's post. Why do brits say "maths" and "sport" while yanks say "math" and "sports?"

Meanwhile in rural Canada I renewed my driver's license in 8 minutes, including walking back to my vehicle to retrieve proof of insurance.
The bane of the US folk. - Janet
Proof of insurance to renew a drivers license? You mean you have to actually own a vehicle to have a license there? - April Russo
even drivers without vehicles have to carry proof of liability coverage. the driver is insured, not the car. car coverage is called "collision", IIRC. - Big Joe Silence
I suspect the key word is "rural" in that statement. - C to the A to the J..Hey!
^ Yup - Stephan from iPhone
Uh, I did mine over the internet in about 3 minutes. - Glen Campbell
I actually renewed mine this past Friday in ~30 minutes which was pretty shocking. Also no wait for car inspection. Even more surprising because we used to have 3-4 DMVs in our county but they closed all of them and opened up a new one farther away. At least it's not a drab, lifeless building anymore. I had to go in for a new photo ID otherwise as Glen mentioned normally we can just renew online. - rönin
They always take a new photo, I believe. Other than that is a matter of checking the insurance policy number and the financial transaction. - Stephan from iPhone

Not really looking forward to Monday: 5:45AM flight to DFW, then a middle seat to SJC. People beside me probably won't like it much, either.
So not looking forward to it that I paid $$ to change the flight to 10:45 AM. - Glen Campbell
Oh, and I got an aisle seat. - Glen Campbell
Congrats. I condole with you. I hardly take airplanes anymore because of the discomfort. Luckily, my business doesn't require lots of fast city changes... - Spidra Webster
AND that flight was delayed, which meant I would miss my connection in Dallas, so they rebooked me on a US Airways flight that doesn't leave for another four hours. - Glen Campbell
AND the US Airways flight is now showing as delayed, which means that I only have 20 minutes to make my connection in LAX. - Glen Campbell
Did I mention that I'm seated in the very last row on my inbound flight to LAX? - Glen Campbell

Our first Trader Joe's is now open. What are your go to Trader Joe's items?
pain au chocolat (frozen, trust me...), naan, simmer sauces, ginger granola cereal, Italian blood orange soda, lavash... I'm forgetting a bunch of stuff... - Fred Garvin
The Indian shelf-stable meals. The Indian frozen meals are pretty good, too. They're cheaper on dairy than most grocery stores. Their ice cream is private labeled Double Rainbow and is some of the best richest non-chunky ice cream you'll find. The mushroom hors d'oeuvres are to die for. I will scarf those in one sitting if someone doesn't stop me. I second the Italian blood orange soda.... more... - Spidra Webster
OOH! I remembered something else: they have pre-marinated meats. kalbi, carne asada, and the like. Those have been really good, too. - Fred Garvin
The already-cooked carnitas is good to grab when you're too tired to do more than heat something up. - Spidra Webster
Harvest Hodgepodge frozen veggies (great for stir fry), frozen chicken breasts, turkey bacon (both regular and pepper), flavored sparkling water, organic lemonade, pomegranate lime juice (great with vodka), chicken apple sausage, guacamole, hummus, salsa especial (refrigerated section), salsa autentica (near the tortilla chips), simmer sauces (the masala one is my favorite), olive... more... - Corinne L
OH YES. The carne asada is so good you want to slap someone. Ground beef & ground turkey are great too. - Corinne L
I need to get the pomegranate lime juice next time I'm there... this is going to be one of my favorite threads, I can tell. - Fred Garvin
They used to have a chicken salad sandwich on pretzel bread... I don't know if they still have it (pre-made, refrigerated section) but if they do... it was great. - Fred Garvin
I am so hungry now. Eric, will your Trader Joe's be selling beer & wine? If so, and you like good wine, I'd recommend getting friendly with their wine buyer as they will clue you in to some great deals. - Corinne L
I can't even imagine a TJ's not selling wine. Wine & cheese were what the store was founded on. (That is, you've introduced me to the novelty of TJ's in possibly dry counties...) - Spidra Webster
Oh, I can't stress this strongly enough: get on the Fearless Flyer mailing list, or make sure you check it regularly online. I've made a number of discoveries reading that. - Fred Garvin
In several places back east grocery stores can't sell beer, wine or liquor, Spidra. It was quite a shocker when I moved to CA 14 years ago & went to Safeway or Vons and there were ALL THE BOOZY THINGS. - Corinne L
We have a state law that a single entity can only sells alcohol at one location. They chose the Denver store for the booze. - Eric - ill subliminal from iPhone
*kisses the ground of California* - Spidra Webster
HA HA HA Spidra! - Corinne L
Jo-Jo's, always get the Jo-Jo's. Never be embarrasses to impulse buy the check out counter chocolate, you can't go wrong. - Heather
I swear by their handmade tortillas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Maple cream cookies. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Cheeses! Kalbi - my kids would eat it every day if I let them. Uncooked bratwurst. Their Clif bars tend to be cheaper than elsewhere. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Pre-made curried chicken salad. TJ's brand pita crackers. Indian simmer sauces. Naan. Their pre-made thanksgiving stuffing is tasty. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
Peanut butter, apple sauce, coffee, Californian olive oil, roster red pepper soup, frozen pizza, ginger cookies, meat,syrah cheese, sprouted grain bread - Mr. The Jason Fleming from Android
The apple cider. - Julian
I should give their Fort Worth store another chance, armed with a shopping list from this post. - Greg GuitarBuster
pain au chocolat. And more pain au chocolat. - Glen Campbell
Nuts, California e.v. olive oil (local makers with $20/half liter EVOO say "get TJ's if you can't afford ours"), Israeli cous cous, maple syrup (we get Grade A Canadian, but there's also Grade B and Vermont), the three-small-chocolate-bars-in-a-wrapper Dark and Extra Dark varieties and the organic Extra Dark chocolate bars. Oh, and dried fruit. - Walt Crawford
Their nuts and dried fruit are wonderful! I keep a bag of the mesquite almonds in my drawer at work for snacks and their sweet and spicy pecans and dried cranberries are very tasty in salads. I also love their mild cheddar and triple cream brie cheese and they have a smoked mozzarella that was very good in my omelette the other night. - vicster
Do they have anything that is not pre-made? - Elena
Yes - you can get cheese, meats, vegetables etc. - Glen Campbell
Lots of stuff, Elena. TJ's is like any other grocery store in many respects, just on a smaller scale. Most of their items are TJ's own label(s). You could conceivably do all your grocery shopping there, but if there are certain brand items you want (e.g., Coca Cola products, Tyson poultry) you would have to go to your local major supermarket. - Corinne L
Coffee. Nuts. Frozen green beans. Appetizers. Frozen Indian foods. Simmer sauce. Pumpkin butter - Christina Pikas from iPhone
COOKIE BUTTER. - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
OMG how had we forgotten about Cookie Butter? - Julian
I'm not close enough to a Trader Joe's to go very often, unfortunately. When I do visit one, I make sure to check out the cheese selection and the beer and wine. - John (bird whisperer)
I refuse to even try the cookie butter because I'd go back 4 times a week to replenish my stock of it. - vicster
WHAT IS COOKIE BUTTER?? - Elena
The cheap wine been mentioned yet? - Joe
These are great. Joe, the cheap wine will not be available at the Colorado Springs location. Colorado only allows liquor sales at one location. This is why our Costco stores have a separate liquor store run by a small business, but obviously in partnership with Costco. - Eric - ill subliminal
Went to the TJ in Denver today. Got some cookie butter, sipping chocolate, Halloween Jo joe's, beer & wine. Didn't want to get anything that had to be refrigerated since I was an hour away from home. I'll save cheese & other cold goodies for the one her in C/S. - Elena
Glen Campbell
So, for breakfast we had pain au chocolát (from Trader Joe's) and bacon (made using http://baconmethod.com). This means we had a large tray of bacon grease left over. Rather than letting it go to waste, I used the leftover bacon grease to rub on the potatoes we're cooking for lunch. In addition, I'm using the whole pan of leftover bacon grease to..
...roast brussels sprouts in, thus saving the expense of several drops of olive oil. - Glen Campbell
Oooh, I was going to suggest using the bacon grease with the brussels sprouts! - vicster

Would "Chipotle but for burgers" be a thing? Probably not, right? Also, functionally, isn't Chipotle "Subway but for burritos"?
I'm a terrible person because I would be okay with a Chipotle for everything. I mean, I'm not deluded about it being great or anything but it's basically an Internet-to-stomach vegan food delivery mechanism for when I'm working late. - joey from iPhone
The one problem I have with snarking on Chipotle is that their commitment to sustainable food is genuinely laudable. But purely considered on deliciousness, I don't know why anyone in LA or SF doesn't just go to a more authentic* taqueria instead. (* even if authenticity itself has little direct connection to deliciousness either.) - Andrew C (✔)
Would that be Fudrucker's? - Eric - ill subliminal
The number of "reasonably" fast burgers around here (Culvers et al) far exceeds any need for a "Chipotle" and that doesn't even count bars and diners that serve a really good burger for about fast food prices. Twin Cities is a burger heaven - WarLord
Yeah, there's probably no point to either streamline burger construction any more nor put it in front of the consumer. The joke could probably have been better expressed. - Andrew C (✔)
Chipotle but for burgers = Fuddruckers? - Meg VMeg

Andrew, even in the hood I'm walking distance from dozens of trucks & taquerias, you're absolutely right. I've only had Chipotle once & wasn't impressed; you can pick your fillings for giant burritos at lots of taquerias around here, so I thought that was just how it's done. Didn't realize for some folx, that's unique to Chipotle :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Even around here, I figure Chipotle is more of a competitor with McDonalds or Subway rather than the local carts, since it's located at the mall by my work (and unlike any of the carts, takes debit/credit as well as just cash.) - Jennifer Dittrich

Thanks! Rodfather: the main thing I like is that there's a built-in grip, and that helps a *lot* with the 75-300mm lens. I had gotten an add-on grip with the E-M1 but it wasn't nearly as good. The E-M1 has phase detection autofocus, which helps with flying birds. If I didn't spend 90% of my time on the 75-300mm lens, I would've kept the E-M5. The E-M1's ergonomics are a little better, and it has more buttons and features. Image quality doesn't seem any better. - Amit Patel

Am I doing something wrong if I'm shooting the moon at f/8? It's full and bright so I guess but it still feels weird.
The last moon photo I took was at f/8. - John (bird whisperer)
Oh, when you said 'shooting the moon', I thought you were playing Hearts (or Spades, or whichever games does that). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Of course, an eclipsed moon is darker, so that might be a consideration. - John (bird whisperer)
The moon is reflected sunlight, so it should get the same exposure as outdoors on a bright sunny day: f/16 @125 for ISO 100 (the "Sunny F16 rule"). During the eclipse it will be 1-3 stops darker. - Glen Campbell
•Try the "sunny f/16" rule: Shoot at f/16 with a shutter speed of 1/200 second if your film or sensor sensitivity is ISO 200. •Owing to the atmospheric haze and dust, and so forth, you might need to shoot at f/5.6 using a shutter speed of 1/250 second. •Try the "loony 11" rule: Shoot at f/11 at 1/ISO.[2] •Try Antonio Marques' suggestion: Aperture at f/11, ISO 100, 1/125 to 1/250.[3] - WarLord
