Sorry, it was on high from about 9-5 then low til 6.30 or so, so 7hrs high and 1.5 low.  It may have been ready before 6.30, but that's the first time I checked it, I think being on low probably just kept it hot til we were ready to eat it.

I knew I didn't include something.... I forgot to mention that the chili generally cooks for an hour or so  Wink.

I love drinking and cooking w/Guinness also, so just about anything I can put it in I do.  I made Guinness crock pot pot roast the other day that turned out well and I love Guinness chili!  These are not recipes I got anywhere, I'm just pretty good at throwing together, what I call, "crap in a pot" which is different every time.  I put down approximately what I would us, adjust to taste  Smiley.

Pot Roast:
2 med potatoes
2 med carrots
1 med onion in chunks
2.5-3lb roast
about 1.5 pub cans of Guinness (20oz I think?)
bit of flour
salt
pepper
any herbs you'd like

I put 3/4 of veggies in the bottom of the crock pot and turned it on high while i floured and braised the roast on the stove.  It turned out that the roast I got was an odd shape for my crock so I cut it in half and stacked the pieces then put the rest of the veggies and beer in and left for work.  My boyfriend came home around 5pm and turned the crock to low because the liquids were boiling and we ate around 6.30 when I came home.  I completely forgot to add any seasonings (salt, pepper, herbs) but had planned on it so next time hopefully I'll remember.

Guinness Chili:
1 green bell pepper
about 1lb ground beef
1-2 jalapenos
1 habanero if you like it spicy
1 med onion
1 can red kidney beans
4 cloves of garlic minced
1 14.5oz can of crushed tomatoes
1 small can of tomato paste to thicken (like 5oz I think)
1 pub can of Guinness
1ts cumin
few shakes of parsley and oregano
1ts curry powder (my secret is I don't use chili powder)
1-2 bay leaves

I chop the onion and mince the garlic and saute with the beef in oil in the pot.  When everything is good and cooked I add everything else (veggies chopped of course).  The tomato paste is just to thicken it so don't add all of it, just as much as you need.  If you don't have any you can let the chili cook down more and that'll thicken it as well.  We usually eat it over rice or fries w/shredded cheddar on top.

Hopefully I haven't forgotten anything and enjoy!

Yup... TOTALLY doing this this weekend!  Gotta grab some nuts but I have all sorts of dried fruits and my cupboards are never w/o rolled oats and honey  Grin.  I've been looking for crockpot recipes too so I'm super stoked about trying this out!!  I think I'll be grabbing chopped/sliced almonds and then using raisins, dried cranberries, chopped apricots and probably grab some of that flax meal... yum yum!

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Reversible Scrap Bag on: August 21, 2009 07:19:17 AM
I am using it today as my regular bag, but it can hold a lot.  I like big bags since I almost always bring a sweater/sweatshirt w/me so I can stuff it in there.  I'll probably be using it, come fall semester, for my books/laptop as well.  The strap turned out about 5-6 inches longer than I intended, so to remedy that I folded it over 2x which actually reinforced the seam so that was a bonus.  It was almost midnight and I wanted it done for vaca today so I didn't feel like cutting out a section and then putting it back together, I took the easy way out  Wink.  I didn't use a pattern, I just kinda figured it out as I went along.  The only thing that I used any measurement for was the length of the strap (and that worked oh so well), everything else was guess-work.  Smiley

Leaving for vacation tomorrow and I needed a new bag that was easier and more comfortable to carry around than my giant shoulder bag.  Given a few hours and some scraps I'm pleased with how this came out Smiley.

I thought about doing this swap and now TOTALLY regret not... It looks like it was a lot of fun!  I can't believe how much everyone was able to send w/all the restrictions from the post office!!  Shocked

Yeah I've actually been doing it (work)daily... I'm not the super artsy type so I refrain from butchering my food into shapes that look nothing like I intended but the food's been super yummy!  It also gives me an odd sense of accomplishment.
