No browning of the cabbage it was in a wee bit of water.
When I started I thought I could eat all of it.
Not gonna happen.
My mom always made stuff with giant chunks of everything and that is the way I like it to this day.

Home made chicken soup for the cold weather. Cheap and delicious.

Home made chicken and rice soup! Frozen chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken, left over rice from a couple days ago stored in the refrigerator, green peas and corn from the freezer, carrots and sweet peppers from the garden. delicious! I debated between potato, egg noodles, and left over rice. Settled on the rice because it was a use it or toss it situation.

Oatmeal with maple syrup, and a couple Babybel cheese chasers. Couldn't be bothered cooking.

We had home made butternut squash soup with cheese and crackers. With the change in weather, it's time to switch to winter cooking.

I love oatmeal. People sometimes surprise me by saying they don't like oatmeal. I think "how is it possible to not like oatmeal?". They are my favorite cookies, my favorite breakfast when I eat breakfast; and many other things. I've been thinking about cooking it until it breaks down into a gruel and using that as a thickener in different dishes.

I made home made chili tonight. It was a last minute, "Honey, I want Chili" type of thing. We had hamburger and a London broil steak that I thin cut into tiny 3/8th" pieces. It turned out really good.

Hmmmmm! Some oatmeal gruel, a packet of McCormick chili seasonings, some ground beef cooked separately, some chopped onions and some beans. I wonder how that would work. It really wouldn't be non traditional. Meat and onions were used in the past to give gruel some taste. It probably has never had chili seasonings added though.

Oh yes it has.
I have put chili powder in just about everything.
Red pepper and honey in peanut butter is the bomb.
Got a lot of folks to try it and their kids loved it.

I had 4 red grapes cut in half with strawberry yogurt for breakfast. The grapes were a little bitter, but worked well in the sweet yogurt.

Splurged for lunch! Good TexMex restaurant. Two beef enchiladas with chili sauce, refried beans, Spanish rice, salsa and queso with tortilla chips. Only a snack for dinner. Probably avocado, cheese, and grapes. Sam's club has some great red table grapes. Super sweet and huge and seedless. Possibly some toasted baguette slices with garden tomato slices, mozzarella cheese and basil. I really haven't decided yet. I love the concept of Spanish tappas. You can mix and match meats, cheeses, and herbs on different types of toast. I rarely drink, but tappas always sound good with a dark red table wine like an Italian Chianti.

Last night I made Jamaican jerk wings with a pineapple mango basting/dipping sauce to go with a bowl of 3 bean chile.

I love oatmeal too. Let me count the ways: oatmeal muffins, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, banana oatmeal bread, porridge, and best of all apple crisp or any fruit crisp!
