Biggest pie I've ever seen.  36 inches in diameter and 5 of us could not wreck it....

I don't want to make excuses, but we did have stuffed mushrooms, calamari, and rolls before the pizza got there.  And, lets examine the math for a moment.  That 36 inch pizza is the equivalent of 6 1/2 14 inch pizzas and there were 2 dudes and 3 chicks on the pizza and the chicks did not hold up their end.

Area of a circle = PI*r^2
14 inch pie 7*7*3.14159=153.94 Sq Inches of pizza
36 inch pie 18*18*3.14159=1017.88 Sq Inches of pizza

Well since the ladies failed to uphold their end of the unspoken obligation to utterly decimate that pie, I shall withhold passing judgement on the group as a whole.

Avoiding the math, how much did that pizza cost by itself?

Point of order here

First, when it comes to eating, we don't really "Want" the girls to hold up their end...if ya know what I'm sayin'

Second. I thought that was some sort of trick photography, not really a man hole cover size pizza.

Third, MAN WHAT WERE YOU THINKIN?

1. Normally that would be a valid point, however in dire situations such as that, you have to step it up, it's the unspoken rule of the table.

2. If everyone was properly attired for a battle that you faced, be it; sweatpants, tshirts, jeans or hoodies and not what appeared to be  post-business meeting or official office clothes, the outcome could have been different.

3. That's a valid challenge and I applaud the gallant 5 who attempted to best such a worthy foe.

Hmm, seems that I have some venison steaks chilling (get it??) in my freezer. So now I'm thinking with this blizzard that's supposed to hit, venison chili is in the cards for Tuesday afternoon...

I think i had like 2 pounds when all said and done; 1lb of cubed and 1lb of ground.

That venison version sounds mouthwatering bobby.

I got the idea for this chili from this recipe.  I did not use the peppers because i didnt feel like going to the store,  so i used some of the home canned tomato sauce, paste and stewed.  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/texas-chili.html

The other night my wife made the most amazing shrimp. I should have taken a picture but I was too busy stuffing my face.

http://damndelicious.net/2014/04/11/garlic-butter-shrimp/

This recipe is real close to what she did. Only change was she put it in the oven on a cookie sheet with a whole sliced lemon.

I guess I should say it's not going to be so much of a chili as a chili/stew/madness combo. I have some sliced italian sausage,possibly some shrimp and rice towards the of the cooking time frame. Just kinda of had an idea combining a bunch of my favorite things. I'm still torn between the rice or potatoes. Regardless it will all be done in the crock pot while I'm at work, so I don't have to do anything more than put it in a bowl.

make sure you get a good acidic marinade on that venison about 24 hours before you put in in the crock pot.  that way you can ensure that it will be nice and tender and not chewy.

Don't really have an acidic marinade or any marinade to be honest, I haven't gone grocery shopping yet. I'm just going to cube it up tomorrow morning, brown it up and season it along with the ground beef and let the slow cooker do, what it's going to do. It hasn't let me down before, but we'll see how it goes.

All else fails, you can say "I told you so"

I did have some canned pineapple. But I drunk the juice after I eat the pineapple.  No lemon juice.

Well it matters not anymore, I didn't end up using the venison. It's going to be pork and burger chili. It's all seasoned up and sitting in the crockpot on low, mixed with some beans, sriracha, chili powder, tomato sauce and water. So I should have chili around 1300ish when I get home from work. Right on time for the blizzard..

Well as the saying goes " no plan survives first contact with the enemy.."

The "chili" came out decent. I probably should've added the noodles to the slow cooker and cooked them that way, but I didn't think there was enough liquid in there, so I cooked them when I got home. Hindsight, it probably would've helped tie it all together, but in the end it's still good and that's all that I was going for.

Maybe to keep all the chicken fat from causing flare ups?  I know when I grill chicken there is generally a near steady blaze going on under them.

I took all of those thing into consideration with the cast iron on top of my grill.   It has two sides one flat and on with the texture, so I can cook smaller things with loosing them, also so I can pick up the griddle when cooking is done and take it into my table and keep things piping hot
 The clean up is fast also, cuts down on flare ups for sure

so I thought I would throw a nod to sam and all of you east coaster's and make a version of poutine / disco fries

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/scratch-made-fries-with-chorizo-poutine.html

I actually attempted to make the homemade fries, but my deep fryer went poo poo on me, so I had to settle with some bag fries.
