Dad’s Chili


Can’t believe I’ve not posted this recipe yet.  Daddy’s in town for a few weeks and I decided to make a pot of chili today.  I know the recipe by heart, but couldn’t believe I hadn’t posted it on the blog.  Chili is one of those things where everyone has their own version.  This is a good base – add and take away at will!

Chorizo, Potato & Green Chile Breakfast Burritos

It’s hunting season again, and the guys asked for breakfast burritos they can heat up on the camp stove griddle or right over the campfire for breakfast, lunch or dinner while they’re in camp.  I cobbled together some ingredients and was pleased to hear that they are EXCELLENT additions to their camp staples of hamburgers and hot dogs.  There are different kinds of chorizo you can buy.  Some is cheap and breaks down into very finely ground sausage when you cook it – some is more expensive and browns more like regular sausage.  I’ve used both types – its all to your personal preference.

One Pot Gnocchi with Kale and Chicken

I LOVE me a one-pot meal – from stovetop to oven to table – not too many dishes, easy-peasy and quick.  I am not much of a fan of the oven in the summer – but every once in awhile we get an afternoon rainstorm that makes turning it on bearable – today was no different.  Our storm is pretty fierce right now – lightning about 3 miles away and that rumbling thunder that makes the chandelir shake!  Dinner is in the oven and I’ve got time to blog – that’s how fast this recipe is.
