Oh, you’re here. This is great. I was worried all night that people were going to get lost or that Blogger wouldn’t do its redirect thing or that I set this up wrong, but look you’re here! Yay! I, for one, am so happy that you are here.

Ahh, the badgers–they’ve taken over the blog. They’ve staged a full-on coup. HuberHadley tipped them and Ava guided them. My defenses were down. I knew they were after my pantry and club chair, but my HP? What do Badgers want with an HP? Well, you have your answer now. Top billing–the badgers want top billing.

So this is where we are now. And it would be great if you would type in http://www.badgersontheloose.com into
your browser the next time you want to come visit. Blogger will only keep redirecting you for so long, and really I don’t want you to get lost.

And if you are one of those insanely nice people who has me on your blogroll or link to me on your blog (for which, by the way, I am so grateful. The fact that you actually come back to read this blog endears you to me, but that you also want other people to come over here–wow, that’s amazing), would you be willing to change the URL from my old blog to my new one. We wouldn’t want to wear out the redirecting folks over at Blogger now, would we?

Now if you were to come to an actual open house like actually at my house, then it would be my fondest pleasure to fill your bellies with something tasty. It’s cold up here in January so it would probably be soup. And I’m married to HungryMan so it would probably be chili.

And since you were so kind to stop over and see our new home, I thought it would be fair that I share my new favorite chili recipe, compliments of my friend Jess’ sister-in-law.

Here’s What You Need:

chili ingrediants

1 giant Stock Pot, 1 Onion, 1 Green Pepper, 1 pound of Ground Beef, 1 can of Tomato Sauce, 1 can of Tomato Soup, 1 can of Water, 1 can of Diced Tomatoes, 1 can of Pinto Beans, 2 cans of Black Beans, 1 bag of Frozen Corn, 3 tbsp Brown Sugar, 3 tbsp Chili Powder, 1 tbsp Cumin, Salt, Pepper, and your favorite Bbq Sauce, oh and Olive Oil.Here’s What You Do:

Chop the Onions and Green Peppers and saute them in Olive Oil over medium heat about three minutes or until soft. Add the Ground Beef and cook until no longer pink. In the meantime, pull out your can opener and open all those cans. Throw the Beans in a colander and give them a good rinse. Tear open that bag of Frozen Corn and defrost the Corn in the microwave. After the meat is cooked thoroughly, drain the fat, but not all of it. And then start pouring in the rest of the ingredients: Tomatoes, Tomato Sauce, Tomato Soup, can of Water, Beans, thawed Corn, Brown Sugar, Chili Powder, Cumin, Salt, Pepper, and a couple of shakes of your favorite Bbq Sauce.

Pretty soon it should look like this. Let it simmer until you are ready to eat.


Mmmm, doesn’t that smell good.

Now if you were actually coming over, I would set the table, make some cornbread, and Ava would get all dressed up and play hostess.

We’re fancy like that.

Phew this open house thing has worn me out, so I’m off to bed. But feel free to stick around and make yourself comfortable. Or check back later, I still have to tell you about the Great Purge and there is another contest in the works.

See you tomorrow.
