    Anyone care to share recipes that your lodges enjoy on meeting nights?

    At my mother LODGE it was usually meatloaf, chili, sandwiches, or spaghetti. Nothing really special.

    We’ve been having chicken with different sides. These are good ideas!

    We always have scotch pies and sausage rolls served hot and a selection of sandwiches and cakes for The Harmony, but we have it after the meetings.

    Ethnic food. Here is Texas that means BBQ from scratch cooked the night before and beans cooked from scratch starting with dry beans.

    Or chili. Why is it in Texas that you can have chili in most kitchens in the neighborhood but in all of Texas I know of one restaurant that specializes in it? This is one of the cultural mysteries of Texas like why there are goats all over the place but not in grocery stores.

    Or Tex Mex. That's available in restaurants everywhere in Texas. I can hardly go for a walk without tripping over a place with very good Tex Mex. It's the flip side of that cultural mystery coin.

    The menu at my EC lodges changes every week. Since we meet at a private club our festive board at every meeting is a catered affair in one of the private dining rooms.

    Ok Brother Doug, could you answer an age old question about chili for me. Beans or no Beans?

    Every native Texan I’ve met says no beans... Doug’s a transplant, curious to see what he thinks.

    That's an excellent summary of my thought. Texas chili has no beans. It's also not the only type of chili and some of those other types do include beans. Though it is the best in a biased opinion I formed long before I moved here.
