Steak Chili

I think we got about eight inches of snow overnight. Some of you may read that and say, ‘So what?’  So plenty!  You see, this is Dallas and in these parts even the lightest dusting of the white stuff can bring our bustling metropolis to a screeching halt.  Imaging what four days of ice, topped off with eight inches of snow has done?  Needless to say, I am STILL cooped up in the house, but I am not going to starve.  I made...
