    Default Quick Dinner


    Tonight I was tired and didn't want to make a fuss over dinner. So I
    cooked up some fusilli, then some ground bison with onion and garlic.

    I added some canned diced tomatoes and some canned chopped green
    chiles to the fusilli.

    Then the bison was added to the fusilli, and the shiraz I used to
    deglazed the pan.

    Gave it all a stir and called it good

    Yummy looking, Koko!

    Ours was a quick dinner, too, at least putting it together for a longish
    simmer. Two pots of chili, one David's style and one my style. I hadn't
    made chili in quite a while, and we both agreed that each of ours was the
    best. :-)

    Friend of mine from years ago used to rave about his wife's chili. He
    made some at work one day. He browned a lb of ground meat, chopped an
    onion into it, put in a can of Campbell's Cream of Tomato soup, brought
    it to a boil and called it chili. Most of us just watched him eat it and
    kept our thoughts to ourselves. I guess it's all in what suits your
    taste buds after all.

    I thought about chili also Wayne. I was going to add chili spices to
    this but got sidetracked. I can always jazz up the leftovers.

    David's chili is not that bland, but isn't at all what I like. Mine has
    many ingredients, spices, etc., and is very thick. His is more like soup
    with only a few ingredients.

    We had just had a pasta dish the night before, but chili hadn't been on the
    menu for quite a while. And, yes, you can always add things to jazz up a
    previous dish. I know you're very good at that.

    Like that Cincinnati so-called chili that the Ohio folks put on pasta? I
    also like my chili thick and spicy. Generally I toss in a quarter cup of
    cornmeal about fifteen minutes before serving. Seems to add something to it.

    IMHO, Cincinnati Chili is absolute crap, but it certainly has a following
    among many. I tried it once when I was in Cincinnati, choked down two spoons
    of it and left.

    My own chili is my own version of midwestern style. For the seasonings I use
    ground red chili powder, fresh ground cumin and coriandere seeds, ground bay
    leaf, black pepper, and Mexican oregano. I also add about a quarter cup of
    cornmeal when finishing it off. It does indeed add something. I've tried
    adding masa instead, but I really prefer the cornmeal.
