Worth make sure to get the "medium" heat instead of the mild. It's the perfect amount of heat for me. Might not be hot enough for you .
I don't think they have a "hot", but the medium has a nice amount of heat.

The gal at the checkout counter asked sir do you have 15 items or less?
My grocery cart was heaping.
I have 14 items thank you very much.
And that is what I had.

It has been a while since I last fried some chicken livers. Today, I had two of them pop out of the pan. I guess that would be more of Random Remembering

Exploding chicken livers.

Has anyone but me had dried chili mangoes?
They are a common snack found in Mexican markets.
Dried mangoes with hot chili powder stuff on them.
You can get them in bulk at the HEB plus stores too.

home made bone broth is the best.

the owner of our local feed and seed raises grass fed beef on the side. i asked him about
getting some bones the next time he processed a steer, and left my phone number with him. he called recently, and asked me if i still want bones. i said yah sure, you betcha.
he said he had two boxes of bones about 120 lbs. only problem on my end is not enough room in the freezer. i had about 30 chickens we raised in it. i took one box about 75 lbs worth. if no one wants the other box, he will hold it in his freezer.
its a real good deal for me. 50 cents a lb. soup bones sold in stores around here are $1.99/lb. we have been pressure cooking them in the big pot for about an hour, and getting some real good stock to use in soups, and stews.
bones were cut to size. i was hoping we weren't going to be getting 4 ft long femurs or such like.

the dog is happy too. there are several bones just the right size for a german shepherd to chew on.

beef stew for dinner tomorrow.

Big dog fight at the house when we brought home bones.

Okay now the house smells like baking fruitcake and beef stew all at once.
Got all the doors and windows open, I bet I'm driving the neighborhood nuts.

Your neighbors are wondering where that sweet savory small is coming from.
