I meant to add this to yesterday's post but forgot.
It seems like all of the cooking shows we watch are impacting more than just my palate. Since I'd crowded my protein, I decided I'd just dump my stuff into the larger cast iron skillet that RockCrawlinChef was using. He was deglazing the pan with merlot (getting the yummy crunchies off the bottom of the pan) to add to the Shepherd's Pie he was making and I told him, "I'm just going to dump this hamburger in there when you're done. I'm not even going to rinse it [the pan] out, it'll give the chili a nice depth of flavor."
WTH? Since when did "depth of flavor" become part of my speaking vocabulary?
It's time for me to put down the remote and step away from Food Network.
