with the 1st presidential debate tonight, Im looking for something “presidential” to make for dinner… and found Barack Obamas Chili recipe:

I’ve been using this chili recipe since college and would bring it to any potluck. I can’t reveal all the secrets, but if you make it right, it’s just got the right amount of bite, the right amount of oomph in it and it will clear your sinuses.

Ingredients:

1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
Several cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground turkey or beef
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground basil
1 tablespoon chili powder
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Several tomatoes, depending on size, chopped
1 can red kidney beans

Method:
Sauté onions, green pepper and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add ground meat and brown. Combine spices together into a mixture, then add to ground meat. Add red wine vinegar. Add tomatoes and let simmer, until tomatoes cook down. Add kidney beans and cook for a few more minutes.

Serve over white or brown rice. Garnish with grated cheddar cheese, onions and sour cream.

To celebrate my new Iphone and the fact that darkness is looming over me. I´ve done this:
An induction powered yoyocharger for Apple.
And since solarchargers don´t work at night or in Sweden half the year, this should be a smash hit.
The induction technology is based on this..
And of course there is a small onboard LI cell to store the electricity generated. So no need to charge as you yoyo. Yoyo and then charge.

I am extremely jealous that people do this for a living. Brings back memories of taking over my parents den wall to wall with Lego pieces, building small cities, cars, trucks, even (attempting) to wire them up with lights. If anyone knows how to become a Lego artist tell me.

(Thanks for thinking of me Danielle)

New blog party album, released online, on CD in october.

“Lyrically, the album is far more introverted than the band’s previous effort, A Weekend in the City, whilst musically, the album combines the jittery art rock of Silent Alarm with the fuller soundscapes of A Weekend in the City, as well as bringing in the electronic elements introduced in the singles “Flux” and “Mercury”. The band has also drawn a heavily Big Beat-influenced sound with songs like “Ares” and “Mercury”.” ~wikipedia
