ingredients, measurements are subjective anyway... i don't know one cook/chef that follows a recipe to the letter anyway!

A good meal is like a painting... the mood, color, and technique all comes together to make a masterpiece!

What is in the cooks/artists soul at the time comes out on the canvas/plate!

Another meal made with things hanging around:

Quick Crockpot Chili

1 1/2 pounds ground round, browned, and drained
1/4 pounds lose pork sausage, browned and drained
5 strips of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
2- 3 red ripe jalopenas, roasted until mostly black, de-skinned and
seeds removed, chopped
1 medium red sweet peeper, roasted until mostly black, de-skinned
and seeds removed, chopped
3 ripe garden tomatoes, roasted until mostly black, de-skinned
and seeds removed , chopped
3 cloves of garlic , peeled and minced fine
1 medium onion, chopped fine and browned
1 Tbls brown sugar
4 Tbls chili powder ( the hot kind )
1 Tbls salt
liquid smoke to taste, I used about 1 tsp
2 beef boulion cubes crumbled
1/2 cup of beer
1 3.4 pound can of red kidney beans, liquid and all

Top with cheese of choice ( use what is on hand )

Combine all ingredients in crockpot and slow cook on high for 5 -6 hours,
or low for 8 - 10 hours. When serving chop more onion and shred some cheese, serve on top of chili.

I roast my vegetables for this in a cast iron skillet on medium high heat.

Eh, I think people who are learning to cook follow recipes closely for a while til they get the idea what might ruin a dish and what doesn't matter. Then they start to branch out.

That chili sounds fabulous. The roasted veggies give such a wonderful flavor! You really like that smoky flavor, huh? Makes it taste like it was made over a campfire. I imagine some roasted ears of corn with it on the side, or maybe corn tortillas.

I cook over wood and charcoal fires as often as I can. I can be found grilling steaks in a blizzard! wink.gif

My hobbie of re-enacting the 18th century has taught me much about flavors and open fire cooking. thumbs_up.gif

OK here is another I came up with tonight:

Using the 2 recipes at these links:

Scottish Cheese Scones
http://www.celticradio.net/php/forums/inde...opic=1392&st=10

Quick Crockpot Chili
http://www.celticradio.net/php/forums/inde...opic=7694&st=10

I made the scones recipe, placed the raw dough in the bottom of a greased 9"x12" glass casserole dish. I then placed the leftover chili from the Quick Crockpot recipe on top and pressed lightly into the dough. I covered with more pepper , cheese and 5 crumbled saltines. Dotted with another ounce of butter to aid browning.

I placed into a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes then reduced the heat to 250 for an additonal 15 to 20 minutes ( until well puffed and brown and heated through ).

Turns out kinda like a Scottish Scone/ Mexican Chili Pizza !

Breakfast can be creative too!

Recipe Name: SKILLET BREAKFAST - SHADOW'S

Serves: 2

SOURCE SHADOWS

2 Large potatoes, 1 inch cubes
6 Slice bacon, thick sliced, cut into short julienne strips
1/2 Small jalopeno pepper minced fine
1/8 Tsp. Onion powder
1/4 Tsp. Garlic powder
1 Large Egg
lemon pepper, salt, ground red pepper and
black pepper to taste
olive oil
corn oil
1/3 Cup Cheese, shredded, use your favotite kind

Place oils into a large chefs pan to cover bottom of pan by about 1/4 inch and heat over medium high heat ( 5 on an electric stove ).
Add potatoes when oil is hot.
Test oil by dropping in one potato cube, if it begins to sizzle and cook immedietly the oil is hot enough. Keep watch on your oil so it does not burn.
After potatoes have begun to cook ( about 5 minutes ) add the bacon, seasonings and minced pepper. Turn and stir often.
When bacon is almost crisp, add the egg and stir and turn to mix in.
When egg is cooked turn off the heat and add the cheese on top, let sit until cheese melts.
Serve while hot with toast and your favorite breakfast drink.

Rose, I know how much you hate being in the kitchen, this one takes maybe all of 15 - 20 minutes in total to cook, surprise the old man LOL!

I would not be doing part of my heritage justice if I did not honor my native brothers and sisters.
