Can’t believe it’s Friday already. I thought these mid-winter days were supposed to drag painfully on, but instead they seem to be flying by. Well, it’s still cold here in the Chicagoland area with a couple inches of snow on the ground. We’re still hoping for that one day warm up on Saturday to 40 degrees, but you just never know around here. I’m just counting down the days until the girlfriend and I make our annual trip down to South West Florida in February… 37 days to go!
The 2015 Chicago Auto Show is on its way next month! It kicks off on February 14 and runs through the 22nd. And speaking of automotive goodness, the granddaddy of auto auctions, Barrett-Jackson is currently in Scottsdale, Arizona. It runs through January 18th and is being covered on the Velocity network daily. If you’ve never seen a Barrett-Jackson auction, you’re missing the best of the best in automotive goodness. Seriously. Check it out!
And I guess it would only be fitting to wrap this up with the beautiful 2011 Cadillac CTS-V featured above. It belongs to Bob, a reader who not only shared his ride with us, but also his own homemade Chili recipe! Apparently he was inspired by my own Minestrone soup that I featured last Monday.
Anyway, we got the sweet Cadillac, the double babes and double jokes, and I even included Bob’s Chili recipe below! Enjoy your Friday!
Hey Keep, I know what you mean about comfort food this time of year. Attached is a chili recipe that’s been in my family for a few generations. Really easy to make…and REALLY good. Saw St. Vincent last night. Loved it and thought Bill Murray was great. And I think Jaeden Lieberher has a bright future in acting. Thought I throw in a pic of my new-to-me toy. 2011 Cadillac CTS-V sedan with a 6-speed…or Cadivette as they’re called. I think you’d love it. Now if the Bears would only get rid of Cutler…. Keep up the good work. -Bob
