  5. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Sure! Here is my basic recipe, although each batch is different. Sometimes I add chopped tomatoes or change up the heat level. One Alarm Chili Great the first day but even better the next day. Adapted from Wick Fowler''s 2-Alarm Chili seasoning mix. You can double the cayenne pepper to make it Two Alarm Chili! Ingredients: - 2 lbs. Course ground beef chuck - 1 Hunt's tomato sauce, 8 oz. - 2 cups Water - 4 teaspoons Cumin Seed - 4 tablespoons Chili powder - 1/2 teaspoon Salt - 1 1/2 teaspoons Paprika - 1 tablespoon Minced dry onions - 1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder - 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper - 4 teaspoons Masa flour - 1/4 cup Warm water - 2 cans Bush's Chili Hot Beans (optional) - Grated cheddar cheese - Chopped green onions Directions: 1. Sear ground meat in sauce pan. Drain off fat. 2. Add tomato sauce and water. Add cumin, chili powder, salt, paprika, minced onions, garlic powder, and cayenne powder and stir. 3. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until meat is tender, stir occasionally. 4. Stir masa flour into warm water to make a thick, but flowable mixture. Add masa mixture to chili. Simmer another 15-20 minutes to thicken. 5. Add chili beans (optional). Simmer another 15-20 minutes to blend flavors. 6. Serve warm with grated cheese and chopped green onions.

  12. The Dish Towel

    I currently have only half a dozen dish towels - 100% cotton, made in Pakistan - one is always hanging from one of the cabinet (fake) drawer handles below the sink. Mostly put to use for hand drying. All of the older towels have begun a new life with my husband as garage towels. There is one decorative towel, not to be used - gift from a friend, that hangs on the handle of my top oven. And several Christmas/Holiday themed towels that have been packed away with the tree ornaments until next year. There are also a dozen or so flour sack towels that we use for dish drying - the one in current use hangs from the handle of the lower oven.
