And for Sunday brunch I made a vat of Mac's patented killer chili. Meat and heat. Beans on the side.

Mac,

I love me some good chili! The last time I made it, I subbed black beans and corn for kidney beans. It was pretty tasty.

A few days ago I made a big pot of 16 Bean Soup. That was so good that I decided that the next time I make chili I'll use the 16 (or 15) beans in it.

You wouldn't perchance be willing to share your chili recipe would you?

Here was my solution to the brutally cold weather we've been having:

Bean and vegetable soup - Slow Cooker 15 Bean Soup

1-lb bag 15 bean blend (use only the beans; discard seasoning packet), picked over and rinsed
1 large onion - diced
2 tblsp. minced garlic
1 bag baby carrots, sliced into round (approx. 2 cups)
4-5 stalks celery
1 red sweet pepper - diced
1 yellow sweet pepper - diced
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tblsp. rooster sauce
1 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 tablespoon fresh)
2 bay leaves
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 32 oz. boxes vegetable broth
2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes
4 leaves (7-8 oz) Swiss chard or kale, stems removed, cut in 1/2" wide pieces
2 tsp. salt

Add beans, veggies and other ingredients to crock pot. Cover, and placed filled slow cooker insert in refrigerator overnight (8-12 hours). Remove from refrigerator, return to slow cooker, and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Stir in Swiss chard or kale, cover and cook 20-30 minutes more, until Swiss chard is cooked. Salt to taste, if needed.

Chili is like firewood; it should warm you at least twice.

My sister from Clio, MI just sent me this:

A Michigan Poem
 
It's winter in Michigan
And the gentle breezes blow.
Seventy miles an hour,
At thirty-five below.
 
Oh, how I love Michigan
When the snow's up to your butt.
You take a breath of winter air
And your nose gets frozen shut.
 
Yes, the weather here is wonderful,
So I guess I'll hang around.
I could never leave Michigan
'Cause I'm frozen to the ground!

Don S.

Top that off with having to put up with a typical day around 80 degrees. Man i am not sure how much of this i can take!


Rob you are looking for trouble man! LMAO!

Great poem. LOL!

Looks like some good recipes too.

We're not used to the cold down here - natural steam sauna in the summer yeah just go outside - but this cold no. And they just put up winter storm watch for Tues - Wed. Ewww. We just had that last week.

I feel for you people up north. I hope and pray this is the last round of the bitter cold this year. One hard winter that's for sure - enough bitter cold already.

California sounds nice but too many fires out there.

Fires are in the mountains or high desert areas like 30 or more miles from the coast.

It's cooling off right now because it really is winter here, now it's 51 going to a high of 69 then later in the week it's clouding up and cooling off. Sat it's a projected low of 45 with a high of 63. Brrr, gonna have to really bundle up and plug in my car. Jeesh, I may have to wear a sweater.

Hate when that happens.

Tonight Winston-Salem is reporting 9F for a low.
Welcome to Michigan!

Your reported high for today (27F) is what we are hoping for this weekend ... just to put it in perspective; that would be 10 degrees above our high temp for the past week. And I'm in 'southern Michigan'.

Ain't normal, but it just might kill the Ash Bore larvae (solving one issue) and the snow may accumulate enough to raise the lake levels (helping solve another)

Trying to look at the bright side

We are at the beginning of a heat wave here. Today’s projected high of 25°F! We may get over 32°F for the next two days before it goes below freezing again.

I know I'll regret saying this but here in the UK we haven't had a Winter - yet!
Sure, the south west of England has had so much rain that most of Somerset is flooded and villages marooned, some for a month now.
But it hasn't been Cold and, so far, no Snow.
Fingers crossed.

User Blog - How To Record a Cover Song Using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand

Joanne Cooper's final blog post for 2017, How to record a cover song using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand is a must-read!

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
