Steve's New Chili!

Went to Steve's Snappin' Dogs for lunch. They have a new chili recipe. I want that.

I get two dogs that highlight the chili.

The Dallas Dog. Onions, cheese, mustard, and chili!

Denver Dog. AKA Homey Dog. Cheddar jack cheese, jalapeno peppers, sliced bacon, sliced tomato & lettuce wrapped in a flour tortilla. And chili!

The new chili recipe? It's great. Get some!

1st 1st 1st

We were in Vegas earlier this month and I wanted to do a challenge.

It ended up being the Big Sicilian Challenge at Verrazano Pizza.

5 have tried (2 photos not up yet). None have finished.

Where the magic happens

Ready to go. The pizza was super super steamy hot. You want to allow it to cool some, but not too much because cold cheese is terrible.

Just started to dig in. Good stuff. Hot stuff. Many thanks to the manager for allowing the sub in of bacon for the sausage. Bacon makes anything better!

I ate the corner pieces first to protect from the corner crusts becoming tough.

I cut the last piece in to 4 smaller pieces. Approximate minute splits for each piece: 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 5, 10, 13. Ugh! The last 2 pieces took FOREVER to get down!

But, hey, finished! That is my 4th eating challenge first-to-finish. Nice! I'd love to be able to do it again and improve on that time!

I whacked it. 1st to do it, 1st eating challenge of 2012, 1st success of 2012.

Recovery Day Eats

Here is my list of stuff I ate on this recovery day after the eating challenge:

2 Hot chai drinks (210 cal each) = 420 cal
1 Powerade Zero = 0 cal
1 Chocolate chip Clif Bar = 240 cal
6 slices turkey cold cuts (20 cal each) = 120 cal
1 Hot choco = 120 cal

Total caloric intake for the day: 900 calories. Nice!
