That looks pretty good EMG. Did you ever post your authentic texas chilli recipe here?

I'm not sure if I did. Authentic Texas red chilli is pretty simple. Use beef cubes. Brown them. Chuck in a chopped onion and stir until translucent. Chuck in a few cloves of diced garlic. Add a few cups of water. Cook low and slow for a long time.

For spices I keep it pretty simple. Chilli powder. Cumin. Smoked paprika. Bit of cayenne. Lots of black pepper. Salt.

I like to add a few kinds of dried chiles like guajillo and ancho, but can't find them here so go without.

That's it. I've tried about every kind of variation there is. With beer. Cinnamon. Worcestershire sauce. Hits of different kinds of vinegar. Tomato. It's a matter of personal preference. I like the beefy spicy kind. Less is more and all that.

Interesting. I would have thought cornmeal was everywhere. It is a part of so many diets around the world.

I can find it, but it's not everywhere, thus rarely kept in my house.

They like corn in this country (steamed, it's sold on the streets like in Mexico), but things like corn tortillas, cornbread, and cornmeal are far less common. Some difficult to find. Getting corn tortillas for the taco shops used to be the bane of my existence.

Hah, I actually am rarely in Greektown; I probably take pics of Greek food because I like it quite a bit, but rarely go out for it. I'm far more often hitting up Mexican or Italian places.

I love lamb. I mean no sexual connotations by the that statement, by the way.

I just happened to be doing jury duty that day a couple blocks away from there, and felt like having a bit of a treat after dealing with that exercise in civic futility all day. It's way more fun when my girlfriend is there; doing the whole Opa! thing and drinking wine. That's probably her favorite restaurant in Detroit, so I usually only go when she's in town. I'm heading out to see her tomorrow night, but Greek food is pretty thin on the ground in her city.

Detroit's Greektown is actually pretty decent, though it's losing a lot of its character as some of the foundation joints have shut down and shit like Wahlburgers has moved in.

I just realized I usually only take pics of stuff I really, really like and as a consequence, I've probably posted the same type of stuff several times.

Nice bird, Moe!

I made beef stew tonight. I used a wine that was a little too sweet, but it still turned out pretty tasty.

I make a spinach and rice casserole but it never looks that pretty. Nice work, Pom.

Baked chicken breast and steamed broccoli over rice. Topped with a giant pile of spicy kimchi. Yum! It's one of my frequent repeat meals.

I really want the $5.00 Fill Up for lunch but Mom's making Shake & Bake for dinner tonight so I feel like it's a bit redundant: https://www.kfc.com/menu/5-fill-ups/chi ... ast-fillup

Are you like that to? If you have chicken for lunch you want something different for dinner or is that just me?

Wow, must have been a beef stew kind of week. I made beef stew yesterday, although most often I use beer instead of wine. More what I tend to have the house than taste.

Tonight my wife is out so I am having a piece of catfish with some of the leftover mushroom sauce I made for a dinner for 80 I cooked for this weekend. It was one of those things that make me a bit upset because the sauce was fantastic and I am sure I will never get it quite the same way again.

I defrosted some of my slow cooker caramelized onions and mixed them in with ground beef and a few other thing to make mini meatloaves. Yum! Had roasted carrots too, all cooked on one sheet pan in the oven.

Sheet pan dinners have become all the rage here.

It really is a good option when pressed for time. You just place the entire contents of the dinner on a sheet pan and bake at like 350-ish until done.

I drizzle with a little olive oil. A sprinkle of Mrs. Dash or minced garlic and that's it. 20 minutes later dinner's ready.

A good one that get's done quick is salmon filet, asparagus and mushrooms.

To bring this full circle, today I am making split pea soup. That is actually for tomorrow's lunch and to share with my in laws as my m-i-l really like split pea. Dinner is actually going to be smoked turkey breast dinner. We didn't have turkey for T-day and I actually am one of those strange people that like turkey.

I am off today and just had waffles and bacon (crisp American style bacon). Now I am off to the gym and then coming hoe to rake leaves so I don't feel too bad about the breakfast.

I have chicken thighs thawing. About to put them in a marinade made of ginger and herbs (i made and froze a bunch of batches of the marinade at the end of the summer when my herbs were still growing - basil, mint, and parsley) plus soya sauce, sesame oil, sugar, garlic...

Think I'll make rice with it, and either steamed broccoli, or some of the kale I froze last summer. Or both.
