I haven't made potato dumplings in a coons age.
Now I have eleven big potato dumplings swimming on top of the goulash slowly steaming.
These would be the cats meow for chicken and dumplings.
They are basically a type of large Italian Gnocchi.

Fancy words but very cheap.

The potato dumplings recipe sound like my potato cake recipe without onions and fried instead of steamed or boiled. We also put mashed potatoes in our yeast roll dough. I hope you took a picture or 2, Worth. I'll have to look up a couple of those potato dumplings recipes. I'm intrigued. We also like gnocchi.

Here is a picture of the goulash and dumplings from the other day.

I have about ten pounds of homemade chili on the stove now.
New experiment.
No water this time to start out but 64 ounces of vegetable juice AKA V8.
The meat is ground chuck chunks.
In other words not chopped to a mush.

Goulash.

Let me know how the chili turns out, please. Egg Foo Yung, loaded fried rice, steamed sugar snap peas from the freezer, and some steamed whole carrots for supper here, tonight.

The chili came out great.
The meat made plenty of juice to thin out everything so I could add my masa to thicken it up.
I was a little worried at first because it was so thick but in due time as the meat coked it came out perfect for my taste.
I can see where tomato juice or Clamato would be good too.
Warming on the stove as we speak for tonight's supper.
Today's lunch was mini ravioli heated on the dash of the truck all morning, came out piping hot.
Less than a dollar a can so less than a dollar for lunch.
I need to can some more pints of dried beans.
Fresh ut from the last batch.
Might do that this weekend.

if there's no beans in it have you thought about freezing it, worth? we do when we make what we call hot dog chili...

That's all a part of cheap eaten. Eat the leftovers so the cost of one meal actually gets split into multiple meals.

I think some grilled pork chops sound good for supper...now what to cook with them?

I should write a book called, 'A thousand and One Ways to Eat Chili.
No not any beans in my chili.

Next on the list is Chili on spaghetti, one of my favorites.'
Then there is the dreaded chili on a baked potato boat with onions and sour cream.
Chili Mac.
Chili used in a taco salad, (you have to have the right kind of chili).
Chili burger.
Chili and fresh corn tortilla casserole.
Chili lasagna.
Chili cheese dip.
Chili with fresh diced tomato.
Chili with homey.
Corn chili.
The list goes on forever.

Just had a rather odd hotdog for lunch.
About equal parts coped onion, mayonnaise,homemade mustard from seed I made some time ago, chopped pickled lemon drop peppers AKA Aji Limon.
All mixed up and put in top of the dog.
Not bad at all.

Plus celery salt.

I had a little bit of leftover cream cheese and some salty white corn chips from HEB. I was cleaning out the fridge and pantry, and those were the last two things...so I tried them together. They tasted so good together - probably not healthy, but mmmmm.

Those grilled pork chops turned into pork kebabs on the grill! YUM! Red skinned mashed potatoes and cream style corn to go with them.

It's hot here today.....I'm thinking a huge loaded pasta salad for our family for supper....

I am really partial to the Tostitos multigrain chips that came out a couple years ago as an alternative to plain corn chip.... Anything cream cheese is so good with chips. Sometimes I make a dip with those pickled artichoke hearts from Costco - my mom gives me a couple jars of them every Christmas. Pop in the blender with fresh garlic, lemon juice, mayo etc. Or cream cheese if you've got it. More often, I am nibbling on a handful of these chips with slices of cheap white cheddar for my late night snack.



Speaking of chili I burned the hello out of the last batch I made. I put it in the slow cooker and forgot to turn it off when I went to bed. It was ahem, very dark when I got up in the morning. Still eating it but... it does have a unique flavor. Dark, really.
Today I'm in the process of cooking my first ever countertop oven roast chicken. Got a scrawny little bird on special $1.88 a lb, I dug into the cooler and found one for $4.37 which is the cheaper chicken I've had in a while. Project is to see if I can roast a bird nicely without having to thaw it and then blame the failure on residual frostiness.

I made a roast beef in the HamiltonBeach two weeks ago that came out great. But you don't want any pink in the chicken....
