5 things: fireman food

November 04, 2011

{ONE: The Classic: Beef Chili, recipe here}

hey look, it's friday! yippppy! yay! whoop-whoop! well last night i went to the fire station to visit the fireman and eat dinner with the guys. i try not to rain on their parade too often, but if my fridge is looking a little empty & sad, and i know MY fireman is cooking... then i am there! so me and about 10 of the guys enjoyed some super good food they prepared! some bacon-wrapped jalapeno thingies (those were all gone by the time i got there), rosemary red potatoes, a pear-cranberry-arugula salad, huge steaks, biscuits, and a cheesecake (that i brought). and i've got to admit, it was pretty good!!! AND very entertaining... those guys are pretty funny! the things guys talk about {when in a large MAN-PACK} is hysterical! sometimes it just blows me away that us gals and those guys are just SO different from one another. but hey, you've GOT to love em! right?!? well here are some FIREMAN classics (with recipes below) for you to enjoy over this {fabulous} upcoming weekend! enjoy!
*check out more "5 things" here, here, or here... enjoy!

ANYWAY, thank my lucky stars I was reading this post on a super full stomach! The inspirations are amazing and I want to try to make everything! Not the huge burgers though... It looks a little scary. Heh!
