Dinner Sunday, September 11, 2016

First, this:


I haven't yet decided if today will be a "Cook's Day Off" and we'll have some of yesterday's leftovers, or if I want to bother making breaded pork chops with veggie and potato. Might do the pork chops and cheat with canned Grands Biscuits and frozen French cut green beans.

What are your plans for supper today?

Rib Eyes here tonight too. This time nice thick ones. Glorified salads for us and Texas garlic toast for him.

Been thinking about 9-11 today myself. Hard to believe it's been 15 years.

Beyond that, it's a beautiful fall day and there's football on the TV. Add a bowl of chili and I'm a happy guy...

I remember every second of that day. Horrible. We will not forget.

I defrosted some ground sirloin I found in the freezer, so probably burgers with mushroom sauce and broccoli salad.

My day started at 1 a.m. CDT. Needless to say, after three flights, clearing customs, etc., I'm tired. Nice that one of my BFFs picked me up, has steaks and veggies on the grill, and a bottle of red open and waiting. I haven't had anyone cook for me since May 29th. I am soooo hungry and looking forward to that steak. I so need the three weeks of respite.

I'm adding celery, roasted almonds, and shrimp to Fried Rice flavor Rice-a-Roni and then putting crispy noodles on top when it's done.

Well, holy crap, Batman! When I shopped last week this weekend's weather was supposed to have been fall-like. So, in view of that and because we likes us some chili, I planned to make chili today. It was nearly 90F and I spent nearly 2 hours in the pool, but it was too late to back out, so chili it was.

I came across, via the Internet, what sounded like a good recipe from the January 2014 issue of Southern Living magazine. Don't know how I missed it because I practically surgically peruse every month's issue. Never had anything bad from the folks there, so...

Okey-dokey, boys and girls!! This recipe is a "keeper." Well, at least the way I made it. Had to do a little improvisation because I didn't have enough of some of the ingredients.

It's really good and will, as they say here, "set you on fire." Not sure if I had anything to do with it because I altered it a bit, but it sure was good.

I only had one can of green chilies. No big deal, but I added a can of Rotel tomatoes with chilies, along with the required can of unseasoned tomatoes.

I did use 2 pounds of beef, but half was ground round. I like the body the combination of ground and chunk gives chili.

Pretty much left out the water. I thought there was plenty of liquid because of the added tomatoes and all the broth. I think I was right after seeing how it cooked up. I did let it simmer for a long while, though, mostly because I had the time and wanted the flavors to get nice and cozy.

No mention in the recipe about salt but, I attributed that to all the canned ingredients. I sampled it and added a scant 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I'm not a salt eater. Just me, but it seemed just fine and Glenn added only a slight single shake of salt at the table.

I topped mine with shredded cheddar cheese. Glenn had his nekkid. We finished up the last of the homemade baguette with butter and, as usual, iced tea.

Made a bunch, too. We each had a huge bowl, I put another meal's portion to go to the freezer and there'll be enough for supper tomorrow.
