Spent my one day off a week at the Dr's office. He put me on some serious antibiotics. Too tired after being out in the cold muck today. We ordered in pizza.

What is a frito-chili pie?

Fritos in a bowl with a ladle of chili on top. Add cheese and chopped onion on top.

I took bits and pieces of various recipes. Wow, that turned out really well. I need to practice that velveting, but the flavour was great, almost exactly like at the Chinese restaurant where I learned to love this dish.

I found a decent recipe for the stir fried vegis. Parblanching them was a nice touch. It kept the colours bright. The sauce was equal parts chicken stock and oyster sauce. Next time I will try adding a bit of cornstarch to thicken it.

Served over brown basmati rice.

If you can find the little bags of Fritos, you open the bag and put everything else in it! No bowl needed! They call it Frito Pie here, and it's quite popular.

Pork chops with gravy, homemade fries, steamed green beans with roasted garlic and peppers, killer coleslaw and a fruity drink for me. Now I'm ready for tea and bed. I'm pathetic. LOL.

That was my problem, especially because I was searching for a certain sized bag to have tailgating Fritos' Pie, which I posted for one of my PPPC's when Cleveland Played the Texans. Good stuff.

Here was my dinner.
I used the bacon "renderings" from today's lunch as my basis for the gravy. Because I can.
