After the walk we studies the model of the mine shaft network and browsed the minerals displayed in the gift show.
We will go back and take the tour when we have out of town guests.
After the park we went to Earin and Dick's to watch the Super Bowl. Great game with a very exiting first quarter.
The chili was good. Normally I make it a little to spicy hot but I kept it toned down since I didn't know Dick's heat index.
In addition to the recipe I blogged yesterday, I added a cup of water when it started to simmer. Simmered for four hours stirring every 20 minutes, it never did stick to the bottom of the pan. I let the chili sit on top of the stove over night to cook in its own heat. In the morning it was starting to look and taste like chili but it wasn't done yet. I turned the heat back on low for 3 more hours to complete the breakdown of the beef chunks.
