Eisenhower is from Abilene Kansas, not Texas. He considers Abilene his hometown and that's where his presidential library is


Dwight D. Eisenhower was born on Tuesday, October 14, 1890, as Dwight David Eisenhower, in Denison, Texas. He was the third of seven sons born to David Jacob Eisenhower and Ida Elizabeth Stover. Both parents were of German descent. Eisenhower studied at the West Point Military Academy from 1911-1915. He served with the infantry, became the #3 leader of the tank corps, and rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel by the end of the First World War. From 1922-1924 he served in the Panama Canal Zone as executive officer to General, Fox Conner. From 1925-1926 he studied at the Command and General Staff College in Kansas, and from 1928-1933 he served as executive officer to Gen. George V. Moseley: Assistant Secretary of War, in Washington, DC.


"The Eisenhauer (German for "iron hewer/miner") family migrated from Karlsbrunn, Germany, to North America, first settling in York, Pennsylvania, in 1741, and in the 1880s moving to Kansas.[12
 
David owned a general store in Hope, Kansas, but the business failed due to economic conditions and the family became impoverished. The Eisenhowers then lived in Texas from 1889 until 1892, and later returned to Kansas,"
 Those whopping two years from birth to age 2 made him a real Texan....

But, he was a Texas native.

Yes, those whopping 2 years DO make him a Texan!




Next time I visit the Eisenhower presidential library in Texas I'll have to remember that.
Oh...wait a second.... I already did visit it- in Abilene KS
If you read his biography he considered himself a native Kansan through and through.

Yes, though born in Texas, the General considered himself to be a Kansan.
 
I consider him to be the greatest President of my lifetime.

Well, I am a New Yorker and my bowl of Red  (not my family's favorite) is as good as any Texan can make!



Since even your family doesn't like it, how can you claim it's as good as any Texan can male?
How many Chili Cook-offs have you won with it?


You don't suppose it might be that her family doesn't happen to like that particular kind of chili. I've heard there are people who don't care for chili that doesn't have beans in it, or that is spicy, or that has ground beef as opposed to pieces of beef.

First of all, I do not enter food contests.  I have enough compliments on my cooking that I don't feel the need to compete.  MH is right. My family does not like "Texas Red".  They want beans in their chili.

You really need to compete, the cheers of the crowd when you win is a fine feeling.

Competing isn't just about proving your artistry with food.  For me it was about winning trips.  Or not.
 
I also met a lot of nice people at the competitions. 
 
It was about fun, not praise.

The top competition in Texas is the Brady Goat Cook Off, it should be on everybody's bucket list. It's a fine affair.
