My annual New Year's Chili for 2018. It's been a tradition in my family for as long as I can remember.

Thanks mom. :love:

Thanks. Every New Years Eve, my mom would make a big turkey roaster (her largest pot) full of chili that day so that on New Year's Day, she could watch the Rose Parade and Bowl Games with everyone else and not worry about cooking anything. It was "help yourself" style and we had people coming in all day long and doing just that.

Wise mom.

Funny, I do a similar thing; just cook a load of whatever since we have no traditional meal. My family requests ethnic dinner from a different country every year. After living all over the world we have adopted a list of dishes we love and I let them choose. So this year it was Chinese, authentic and non-westernized from original recipes I received while in Honk Kong and Singapore. Yesterday I prepped a full Moroccan meal, again authentic and we've been feasting on it. A couple of years ago Christmas dinner was Indonesian...we seem to be all over the place like a mad dog's breakfast.
About to post the Moroccan feast. :)

Well, here it is, our Moroccan feast, completely made from scratch. While the roast was in the oven I managed to drag out one of my background boards that I used to use while writing a food blog...no longer.
So here it is.
From top clockwise: Balela, green and black Moroccan olives, dolmas (not really Moroccan, but what the heck) pita bread, preserved lemons (don't eat them like that, I use them in that chicken tagine in the center, cucumber and mint yogurt dip, baba ganoush.


Second image is the pork tenderloin roast Moroccan style.

And one more shot of a jar full of divine Moroccan preserved lemons in salt...I have 3 jars and they keep for a year but really never last that long since I burn through them like crazy.

Now that's a lot of food. Did you make all that and still have time to watch the Rose Parade and football games too? ;-)a

That is a lot of food, Gene. I don't watch TV at all, seriously.

I need to make some. I recently started making Indian pickles but with California twist (my mom wouldn't have used extra virgin olive oil or brown sugar for that matter) but they come out much better than most junk in Indian stores. Only problem I only eat them once in a while and when I need them I find they have been already finished by my wife.:)

To me living here in CA, it is great with all the food options.

Same here, no TV for 6 yrs now. No football, no basket ball and life still goes on nicely without it. Now only if I could spend less time on my computer.

Oh, I love Indian lemon pickles in oil, salt and spices and keep digging in that jar all the time. And you are right about the home made ones, commercially made don't even come close.
Here are 2 lousy cellphone shots of mine.

Hahaha, I have an excuse for spending time on my PC while being sick :)

Happy New Year to you and yours!

I guess I should add that I haven't watched a football game or seen the Rose Parade in years. :-) But my parents did when I was growing up and it was my mom that wanted to be with friends instead of stuck in the kitchen cooking on New Year's Day. Of course, staying up late to ring in the new year might have dampened any enthusiasm for getting up early for the Parade or for cooking on New Year's Day too. ;-)a

My sister also carries on the tradition of Chili on New Year. Her family even has a chili cook-off with a trophy to the winner too.

In the last few years I crashed before midnight...must be old age :)

That's a wonderful tradition, Gene!

Not Texas chili, but it looks good enough to try.  :p
Happy New Year!
