What's for Dinner Wednesday April 28, 2010

Okay, so I am pretty sure that no one else has started it this time, but if so, I will be happy to be "merged" in.

DH is at work tonight and both Dad and I are fighting colds (him more than me I am afraid) so I was thinking of following Vanilla Bean's lead from yesterday and making chicken noodle soup. Or we can have some leftover chili which is what DH is taking.

What's creating wonderful smells in your kitchen tonight?

I'm trying a new chili recipe from Rick Bayless. He calls it "The World's Greatest Chili". Ill be the judge of that!

I have tried several of Bayless' recipes and if the chili is as good as they were, you will be judging a winner!

I hope so.

I don't have a problem with the chili I have been eating but was surfing around looking at Mexican recipes. Rick Bayless is always a first stop when I want Mex. I saw the chili recipe and thought I'd give it a try even though chili is not really a Mexican dish.

Let me know how it turns out. I made a through-together chili yesterday and wasn't that happy with it.

andy, i'm interested as well.

dw wants me to compete in a chili cook off in our town on mother's day coming up. i haven't made chili in a very long time, so a tnt recipe would be a good guide.


i'm not sure what our dinner will be tonight. i'm hoping dw makes turkey meataballs and spaghetti.

i have the ingredients for a good tofu stir fry, and a whole, untrimmed eye round roast that i was hoping to do on the grill's rotisserie. probably won't get to that until friday.

The World's Greatest Chili

Isn't.

I tried a taste or two just now. It tastes just OK. Kind of one dimensional or flat tasting. After tasting, I added more salt and some black pepper and it helped but wasn't enough. I'll stick with my TnT recipe.
