Ted Sorensen (1928-2010)

Theodore C. Sorensen died today at the age of 82. He was John F. Kennedy’s right hand guy through the ’50s and JFK’s presidency, and ghost wrote Profiles in Courage and large portions of the 1961 Inaugural address.


Stinque Cooking Update: I have SFL’s Texas chili simmering on the stove. BTW, Lefty, I didn’t know if your recipe meant regular paprika or smoked paprika so I used one Tbsp of each. Used “very hot” New Mexico chili powder and Ancho chili powder (1 T each) but blanched a bit at the 1 T of red pepper flakes–only used about 1/2 T. I will report on the outcome. It smells great.

@Mistress Cynica: Link to recipe? I’m going to try it to see if it beats my own method.

It’s actually posted on that same thread. And it’s unanimous here: Best chili Mr Cyn and I have ever had. Kudos, Lefty.

@Mistress Cynica: Oh yeaaaahhh! It’s an amalgam of my family’s recipe crossed with Lady Bird Johnson’s recipe and the old school chili recipe in this awesome Tex-Mex Cookbook that helps walk me through so many recipes of my childhood.

@SanFranLefty: I’m gonna make it later this week with either ground turkey or MorningStar Farms “beef” crumbles. Will let you know how it turns out.
