O.k. gentlemen, I must digress. The statement the way to a man's heart is through his stomach I have found to be true in many cases.

On the negative side of that I've also found the abusive males who claim it isn't fit to eat while they're shoveling it in like someone who hasn't ate in a month...well I often wish a MAN would take him outside behind the barn!

The way to a mans heart attack is through his stomach.
Easy way to long term murder someone.
Feed them to death.
Pretty sure my evil sister did it.

Perhaps hubby has a limited number of taste buds? All I know is he only likes the same thing over and over. Anything outside of meat and potatoes or Mexican anything he frowns at. We go to the Thai and Indian restaurants w/o him. He has no desire to try anything different. If I gave him a hamburger or steak or tacos every night, he would be happy. When we married, all he wanted was fried foods. I'm sure it had to do with his upbringing - alcoholic mother who was almost non-functional and father who tried to fill in when he was home. I'm sure they ate a lot of TV dinners. I eventually moved away from frying anything but potatoes.

I consider trying new foods to be an adventure, like hiking in a new area.

You guys have been an inspiration to me.
I couldn't make my mind up what I wanted when I stopped at the store.
I bought carnitas and an 11 oz can of chipolte peppers in adobo sauce.
The peppers were 2.28 San Marcos brand.
Flip 2.5 pounds of carnitas in flour and fry like you would any pork but cut them up smaller first.
The carnitas cost $4.42.
Chop up peppers.
When all the post is fried take most of the oil if it is too much I didn't need to take out any.
Save the yum yums.
Cook a small thin roux in the oil and yum yums until toasty.


Dump in the peppers and the sauce with 22 oz of water use the can to measure.
The first can just put water in the adobo sauce to get all the goodies.
Cook down to thicken and put this in another hot skillet with meat in it and fold.
Do not add any more spices you have everything you need.
DO NOT over cook the pork.
This is a main course that can easily feed 6 or more people for $6.70 cents.
The South meets Mexico.
Pictures soon.

All of that cooking and supper is a few spoon fulls of peanut butter.
It will be good tomorrow night.

Turkey chili for us again. This time with the turkey! I asked my husband if he has ever had spaghetti with chili over it. He laughed and said no, I said I haven't either but it might be adventurous, lol. He said we could try it, and I said we could make spaghetti tomorrow night and have leftovers for lunch on Friday, then try it with leftover cooked noodles, lol.

Spaghetti with real Texas chili (NO BEANS) over it is the bomb trust me on this.

Aged cheddar, the crumbs left at the bottom of a bag of potato chips, and a glass of wine. Had to stay late at the office tonight for a meeting, and by the time I got home I didn't feel like reheating the dinner my husband left in the fridge for me.
