I've been on a popcorn kik lately. Walgreens had a special: two 46 oz. jars for $6. That's almost six pounds of kernels! Healthy, filling, and frugal snacking. Plus you can't beat the smell.
Sounds good. The fruit would add some sweetness.
Chili sin carne y con fruta recipe for Joan
300 grams of veggie ´mincemeat´
jars or tins of beans - any mix - about 800 grams
500 grams of tomatoes
2 or 3 big onions
500 grams of pineapple or peach - if in tins, unsweetened
a tin of concentrated tomato puree
4 cloves of garlic
cayenne pepper, black pepper, paprika powder, nigella or other spices you might like
Sauté the onions, add pressed garlic and fry a minute longer, add sliced tomatoes, tomato puree, spices, stir put a lid on the pan and let it simmer. Drain the beans and the fruit, save the fruit juice. When the tomato and onion stew is ready, add the beans and the fruit and let it simmer again. If it´s too wet take the lid off the pan, if it´s too dry add some fruitjuice. It will be ready in half an hour or so.
Chili tastes better after a night in the fridge. I always make a lot of it and freeze the leftover portions.
One thing for certain, I'll never buy corn (esp on the cob) in a grocery store. While the spring rolls look good, I'm not sure I would want to tackle making them. Guess I'm too "midwestern". I did roast 3 kinds of potatoes last night (reds, golds, sweet), rolled in olive oil, thyme, parmeson cheese, and added turmeric. Pretty good, although I wish turmeric wouldn't stain my plate, etc.
Daniel, the spring rolls look delicious. I could make a whole meal out of spring rolls.....or egg rolls as well.
Randy You're welcome! We have that at least weekly. Lately, I've been steaming the potatoes instead of boiling. I made it last week with russets, but I like red skin or Yukon gold better in that recipe. I also sometimes add a dose of sriracha for extra zippyiness.
I'll have to try freezing some corn this summer. I had too much last summer. Bought some at grocery store last month. It was terrible.
I wanted to learn something new, so have been working on Thai salad rolls. They are easy but take some practice to make a tight roll up. The sauce is peanut butter, soy, and sriracha mixed together, also very easy.
Frozen corn on the cob tastes surprisingly good, Spud. I've never done it before because it takes up so much room. But for some reason, I did it last August. I have about 6 ears left. I used Daniel's recipe for the potato salad. Thanks, Daniel!
Sounds good Randy. How does the frozen corn taste compared to fresh?
Joan, thanks for the pepper chart.
