We'll here we go. A thread EVERYONE can chime in on. Even those that have never posted before. Bring on the newbies......

I want to know what you eat for dinner. I am getting sort of tired of the same ol same ol. My wife made a great dinner last night, Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, veggies, and biscuits. Nicely done.
But for the most part, we have the same ol stuff, and plain. Chicken, pasta, etc...
And toss in the recipe if you don't mind sharing... but no books, titles, or links please.....

What's on your plate??? Please share.......

Tonight we're having Pizza....

I know I have a problem, I have had pizza every night for the past 2 1/2 weeks. The wife is on a diet so I get to eat my favorite every night.

So is the chicken "in" the chili, or a side?

Chicken is grilled, sliced up nice and small, and put into the chili. Always better the second day after the stuff has spent the night in the refrigerator.

I'm going to have to ask for the recipe for that! Sounds great!

I'm going from memory and measurements aren't precise (it's chili afterall)

Four boneless chicken breasts grilled/chopped into small sections (I've done it with a pound of hamburger or buffalo, too) Any meat will work.
2 onions chopped
4 green onions chopped
multiple cloves of garlic.
1 or 2 jalapenos diced
2 bell peppers chopped
2 cans of diced tomatos
2 cans of black beans (rinsed)
1 can of beef stock
Worchestshire sauce
oregano
chili powder
cumin
salt/pepper
corn starch or flour
1 can of tomato sauce (I forgot this time, but optional).
If you want hotter, throw some habenero peppers or the small cherry red round peppers in there. I've had to tone it down over the years. With enough chili powder and one fresh jalapeno, it will make you sweat. But it's all taste.

Put some olive oil in a stock pot. Add garlic onions, green onions, peppers and saute them. Add tomatos and chicken. Spices are all to taste. I'm very liberal with the chili powder. Add beef stock and w sauce and about 4 cups of water (sort of have to eyball it). Add more chili powder until a taste will make your nose run. Thicken with corn starch or flour to whatever consistency makes you smile.

To really make it good, get some cornbread mix and sub buttermilk in the recipe. Make corn pancakes. Put the chili in the bowl and make a pancake the size of the mouth of the bowl. Lay it on top and cut through it with your spoon to get to the chili. It's a delight.

It's very common in Mexican food. I always add it when making tacos.

"Cumin was known to the Egyptians five millennia ago; the seeds have been found in the Old Kingdon Pyramids. The Romans and the Greeks used it medicinally and cosmetically to induce a pallid complexion"

That clears it up, thanks......:o

Just to get back to cumin (kewmin), if you've ever had black beans in a Cuban restaurant, they're probably loaded with the stuff.

I have heard that you can put it on a Cankor sore and it clears it up fast....hurts bad at first though.

Cumin is also one of the ingredients in Chili Powder, that makes it taste like “Chili Powder”.

I've been thinking about dinner all day. Tonight we are having 22 oz. bone-in ribeye steaks with gorganzola cheese & pine nut butter spread across the top of the steaks. We will top it off with some nice vegies and a bottle of 1996 Pahlmeyer Cabernet Sauvignon. :D

(Starting tomorrow, the diet starts as we have a competition at work to lose 15 lbs. by January 13th. If you make your weight on that day, you pick up a cash prize of $650.)

Tonight: 4-5 martinis, grilled fish, salad

Last night: Chicken breast stuffed with cheese, bell pepper, garlic, smothered in red sauce.

Wed night: Steak Ceasar

Tues: Lamb Calzone with goat cheese, red peppers, onion and garlic

Mon: BBQ turkey, garlic potatoes, salad, and BBQ'd asparagus.

We have a list of about 50 recipes that we choose from for our nightly dinners...They're not the greatest, but they'll do. Oh, and the wife is always watching what we eat, so they're all from weight watchers...

My favorites:

Grilled Cheese with tomato soup.
Cajun Meatloaf (if you like it hot, I'll gladly give out the recipe, it is awesome)

This is my version of pizza. I started making this several years ago when I found out I couldn't eat gluten. Rick and the kids would order a pizza and I wanted something easy, but good for myself while the others had their pizza. The problem was everyone wanted what I had instead of what they ordered. We don't order pizza anymore at our house. I just make a whole bunch of these.

I make them with corn tortillas. I put about a tablespoon of pizza sauce on the tortilla and then pile on a 4 cheese mozzerella blend, I saute onion, garlic, green, and yellow bell pepper in olive oil and put that on along with some roasted red pepper, ham, feta cheese, gargonzola cheese, and basil. I put them in the oven at 400 for about 10 minutes. They taste really good with some Woodchuck Draft Cider... that's gluten-free too. YUMMY.
