What's for dinner ? [merged threads]

It's a gloomy, rainy day in the Bay Area, so
I'm cooking a pot of chili, and making a pan of cornbread. I got a sack of Fritos at the store so I could have Chili Pie (an old friend from growing up and going to Texas elementary schools)

You?

MMMmmm what goes into your Chili. I find Chili Recipes interesting. I was talking to someone at work and they said they put pepperoni in their chili.

Me I am home alone with the dog on this Friday evening and I am being really bad and having Pizza.

It's as much a ratio as a recipe....

1 pound of ground beef (stew beef cubed very tiny also works well but is a lot of work)
1/4 cup good chili powder per pound.
~ 8 oz of tomato sauce (add 50% more water instead if you're a purist)
~16 oz of water.
1/2 tsp of garlic salt

The above can be adapted upwards, but slack off on the chili pepper the more meat you do.

After meat browns, drain and add the other ingredients. Then, depending on the mood and the kitchen add:

Dried chili peppers (w/seeds left in/taken out to taste).
A tablespoon of Liquid Smoke (a la Corky's BBQ in Odessa "Rib Meat Chili." Is that place still there?)
Minced onion.
You can try pepperoni. I haven't.

Simmer till liquid drains off. Add, if non-purist, beans. Good canned black beans make it a little different.

So your chili has no beans?


Mine is pretty similar

1 pound of ground beef
1 large onion
1 large can of baked Kidney Beans
2 small cans of Tomatoe soup
2 tsp of crushed red peppers
Chili Powder...the amount changes depending on how hot I want it.

Hi Squeaker!

Dinner sounds excellent in The City tonight.

bnagirl is out of town this weekend at a medical conference in Ann Arbor. bnaboy and the 5 kids feasted on leftover pizza tonight. I promise it was NOT North Beach either.

Tomorrow we will try to elevate to something that is at least fresh. We miss Mom!!!!!

It was gloomy here tonight too. I made a beef stew, accompanied by some fresh sourdough bread and a nice glass (or a few) of red wine. Yum!

<-- at work this evening. Dinner consists of a goofy sandwich I made and threw into my bag.

Eastwest's Delicious Sandwich

1. Take two pieces of bread and smear cottage cheese on both. (Just like you would PB).

2. Put lunch meat of your choice in the middle.

Enjoy.
What can I say? I like it.

Supper? Isn't that something they do in the south? I thought we only had dinner in California.

Me, I had a late lunch - taco salad at the Hopyard - and skipped dinner. Mr. letiole slept so he could be awake to watch airplanes over night and T-wiz bought a rice crust tofu cheese pizza from Whole Foods that he says he will never again buy.

Tonight it's roast pork stuffed with prunes and garlic, fresh sauteed wild mushrooms, oven-roasted potatos, green salad and a delicious pear and almond tart from Gérard Mulot.

Wine: 1992 Chateau Franc Lartigue (Saint-Emilion Grand Cru).

P.S. I'd settle for chili any night, though!

Do you own share in Mulot? You seem to eat an awful lot of their tarts, or are they just Monoprix with a little Mulot sticker?

Let's not confuse Mulot with Ibis, Scotty my friend!
