What’s Happening Today – November 11, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife – Happy Veterans Day!
While, today is Veterans Day, the need to celebrate our veterans is not just limited to one day, but everyday. Veterans Day wasn’t always Veterans Day. We talk with Professor Tim Robinson of Salisbury University about the rich history behind this day.
Many of us are experiencing new things this year: facial masks, social distancing, working from home…perhaps, all of those things have you feeling anxious? Maybe even, a little depressed? Well, it’s time to give those feelings some attention – more, giving yourself attention. It’s called self care and it’s the subject of today’s Wellness Wednesday.
Veterans Day isn’t just a day to thank those who have served (and continue to serve). It’s a time to reflect and to reminiscence. We talk with Retired USMC Veteran, Bob Broderick of Ocean City, about his time spent in the service.
We try, every Friday, to show you so much of the good that has come from a global pandemic. We’re so happy to say that list keeps getting longer. Today, we add a cookbook to the mix – a cookbook featuring family recipes from artists’ who would zoom together during quarantine. We talk with Executive Director of The Ocean City Art League, Rina Thaler, about “We Made It.”
A spot for good times and great grub on gameday. Fat Ricky’s in Downtown Cambridge. The midshore sports bar and restaurant opened up just this year. Katie takes us on a tour inside.
BBQ One-Pot Chili will certainly warm your heart (and your belly). Hearty and comforting (with a touch of smokiness), this recipe is meant to be shared. Check out the recipe below:
What You’ll Need
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 2 (15-1/2-ounce) cans kidney beans, drained
- 2 cups barbecue sauce
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
What to Do
- In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot. Add beef, onion, and garlic, and cook until meat is browned, stirring occasionally; drain off excess liquid. Add tomatoes, kidney beans, barbecue sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper; stir to mix well.
