Who needs water?

water.jpgI returned home from the gym around 3 o'clock this afternoon, eager for a shower after spending the day sweating. Unfortunately, I returned home and there was no water. Not "no hot water," mind you. No water.

No matter. Certainly this would get fixed before dinner time, meaning I can make pasta or do dishes or any of those normal Sunday kitchen-centered activities.

6:30 p.m. Still no water.

Time for plan B. Truth be told, making a dinner sans water isn't really that difficult, particularly if you have a well-stocked pantry. It just adds some urgency to the recipe I want to share with you.

Buffalo Chili: No Water Necessary

1 pkg ground buffalo (thank you, Wegman's)
An onion, chopped
some garlic, chopped
some red and green bell pepper, chopped
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
a couple chipotles in adobo sauce, chopped
1 beer, dark (I added about half a beer to the recipe)
1 cup chicken broth
1 can crushed tomatoes
chili powder
olive oil

Heat onions and garlic in oil for one minute. Add buffalo - cook until browned. Add peppers - cook briefly.

Throw in everything else, seasoning to taste. Cook on low until sauce is your desired consistency.

Easy enough. Who needs water, anyway? But washing dishes without good old H20? That's another story. Luckily,

7:20 p.m. Water returns.
