Tonight’s bedtime snack is really something. We had some leftover Bush’s Beans, some leftover chili, and a couple of teaspoons of leftover, home-made beef gravy. We chopped up a couple of slices of slightly-gone onion. We put in a segment of frozen red pepper. We sprinkled that with a bit of salt, even more freshly ground black peppercorn, and then hit it again with our new garlic salt and chili shaker, also with a grinder-head on it, which we got for a buck and a half at a local dollar store.
On the bottom of the mess tin, before we threw anything else in, were a couple of frozen beef wieners, cut up with a sharp knife sort of thing.
Hopefully that won’t kill us.
And if that don’t make you crack a real good sweat about two a.m., I don’t know what will.
But this, I think, is one of the reasons for our longevity around here.
