Whats for Dinner - Thurs Aug 24th?

I just whipped up a batch of chili. I just had a huge craving for it.

I don't follow a recipe I just add stuff but today I thought I'd go ahead and write down what I added and how much in case anyone needed a recipe. It turned out very good.

1 Tbsp Oil.....I used Olive Oil
1# Ground Beef
1/2 Medium Red Onion or 3/4 cup; diced
1/2 Large Green Bell Pepper or 3/4 cup; seeded and diced
2 (15.5 oz) cans of Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed. You could add 1 can red and one dark red for contrast.
2 (14 oz) cans of Hunts diced tomatoes. NOTE: I only had a 28 oz can of whole tomatoes so I threw those in the food processor and pulsed it a couple times being careful so they all didn't break up completely.
2 cups water
1/2 tsp ground Cumin
3 Tbsp Mexene Chili Powder Seasoning
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper (on the fine grind)

In a Dutch Oven I browned the ground beef with the green peppers and onion. Be sure to break up the meat as it browns. I drained off the fat and put the mixture back in the pan and added all the other ingredients. Simmer on low for 30 minutes.

Serve it in a bowl and if you like add a topping: Sour Cream, Scallions, Jalapeno Slices, Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese or Shredded Taco Cheese, etc.....

Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn on the cob, & biscuits. Maybe if my family is really nice to me I'll make a strawberry pie for dessert.

We're having breakfast for dinner tonight:

eggs over easy
hash browns
sausage gravy (we've been talking about this so much...mmmmm)
waffles - I love my gravy over waffles, biscuits are 2nd

Would someone put 911 on speed dial just in case Mr HB and I don't recover from this heart attack on a plate?

I don't know.

Sheila is working nights this week, so we're kind of on opposite schedules, and nobody has been picking out things for dinners.

Maybe Beer and Chex Mix?

Since Sizz, got me thinking about black beans, I'm making a black bean and corn salad, pork loin studded with garlic and laying on a few sprigs of rosemary, rice cooked in chicken stock with sauteed white onions and mushrooms and some sauteed apples and onions.
