What's For Dinner 9/12/10

I'm taking leftover chili from the freezer and morphing it into what I call chili dogs. Since the meat seems to get less and less in my left overs, I slice up some Bar-S smoked sausages and heat them with the chili, simmering for about 15 minutes to get the sausages heated through. It's ready when the sausage slices get plumped up.

I'll serve it over onion rice: One package onion soup mix uses 4 cups water so that means 2 cups rice, no additional salt needed. Leftovers are packaged in zip baggies and frozen.

Boneless pork chops stuffed with spinach and feta, some starch or other for me, garden veggies and freshly made apple squares and vanilla ice cream.

Today we had a splendid chicken roast, which Jill my 13 yo made for us all. Turned out lovely. She's wonderful like that. :)

Hello friends,

So dinner will be a big pot of chili (no beans), rice, jalepeno cornbread and hot dogs for the kids.

HAGD!

We had a huge breakfast and, then, a nice ride on the Harley. Late and big lunch, so we'll reprise the white beans and ham and cornbread from last night, but add a green salad with red onions, pimentos, artichokes and grated Parmesan. Dessert...maybe. There's still plenty of walnut cake left.
