Tailgating Recipes: New Orleans Ugly Dog Saloon BBQ Chili Beans


From Denny:  Check out this recipe to make bean style chili for a huge crowd - just perfect for tailgating during football season - and affordable. 

If you want you can always add meat for a heartier version but this recipe is all about the spices and vegetarian since the majority of their menu is meat.
This recipe comes from the amusing folks in New Orleans at the Ugly Dog Saloon in the Warehouse District, a few blocks from the Convention Center (401 Andrew Higgins Blvd, New Orleans, Louisiana).  Be sure to pay them a visit when you visit the Crescent City!

This is a recipe meant for a crowd as it makes 5 gallons, using commercial-sized cans of beans and tomatoes and seasoning blends available to restaurants.

Visual Insights: 18 Funny Coffee Splash Photos: From Denny: Check out the best of the amusing coffee splash photos over at flickr. Many are a first time effort from the photographers.

Ever since flickr created galleries to stash your favorites by themes and in groups of a manageable 18, I've been having fun on a regular basis. Try it sometime and get your own Visual Vacation to rest your tired brain at the end of a work week. :) Enjoy!

The Social Poets: Funny Late Nite Jokes: Talking Trash Politics

LSU wins against the Oregon Ducks 40-27!  All is well in Louisiana tonite.

The Social Poets: Funny Late Nite Jokes: Talking Trash Politics: From Denny: Catch up for the month of August on all the political and social commentary, courtesy of our beloved national comics.

With the state of our politics in the abyss of The No Sense Zone we all could use a good laugh and these guys sure don't disappoint! :)

The real question is not who are we going to vote for in 2012 but rather do any of us feel motivated to go vote at all considering all the crazy talk and broken promises?

Did you know that increasingly Americans get their news analysis from satirical comedians and blogs like this one? They no longer trust the mainstream media to give them important details of the news. It's more and more apparent that too many media outlets have their own agendas - like making money off forcing an interest in a story or situation: the minutia of the 2012 presidential election.
