    Relatively quick and easy chili. Brown ground beef in one pan. Use a little of the rendered fat from ground beef to sweat down diced celery and onions. Add in Williams chili powder and a smidgen of salt. Serve over rice.

    Yum. Any additional details on the spices added to cauliflower rice? Did it cover the taste of cauliflower? Missus bought a big bag of it at Costco (because it's good for you! ) a while back. Pretty much every I made, just tasted like cauliflower. Blech.

    Yeah, I doubt most folks would guess it was cauliflower. I think she put in saffron strings, chipotle powder, salt, pepper, a squeeze of lemon juice and used some evoo in the cooking. Also the onion and red bell pepper add to the flavors. You can put pretty much any protien on top. We seared some shrimp with chipotle pepper seasoning on them. All went nice with a cool glass of white wine.

    Good plan. Don't deny yourself scallops!

    Had a visitor in town who wanted Mexican, so I took her to the joint that I went to with F-chatter Tamas when he was visiting last month. Place called Miguelito's in the small town of Sanger.

    I had a tostada. Tasty.

    Shrimp Ranchero is what my guest had. She said it was great. Who says we don't eat veggies down here. We do, if they're Texas sized! That's one big, honking zucchini!

    Food was good, once again, but I have to break it to my guest that it's not normal to drink chardonnay with Tex Mex grub.

    Just a salad last night. I'm going to Japanese with the parents tonight. So my usual assorted sashimi and chopped scallop rolls.

    Scallop Man!

    We went to a reveal party for the new Macan at Porsche of Plano, and ate there. As usual, PoP folks put on a great soiree. No pictures of food, but some pics of cool cars! My favorite food item was the habanero chocolate liquid nitrogen ice cream by a Iittle company called Yelibelly. It was great.

    I’d be down for some of that ice cream. I used to make jalapeno lemonaide.

    Did a lamb leg on the smoker.

    A day of vacuum sealed rub of coconut charcoal, yellow and brown mustard seed ground, turmeric, stevia leaf, yerba mate, salt.
    Smoked about six low and slow hours above water with lavendar stalks, over hardwood chunk with smoke from soaked apple, pecan, some of what I think is cherry, and some crushed hemp stalk (felt like I’d gone back to the seventies when it lit off).
    De-crusted of the rub after the smoking, then seared in the coals.
    It came out great! But I’m bad at getting good pics...

    ^ Hey Ron! It was great. Just got enough to get the endorphins in gear, but not so hot as to be unenjoyable. And, since it was cold and sweet, it worked with the heat of the habanero.

    Just a salad...…… tonight I'm cheating. Its burger special at Triple O's. The poutine there is pretty good, so I'll probably get that too.

    Last week the McDonald's here had a dish usually served in Canadian McD's. It was a burger. Burgers, we got here! Why not poutine?!?

    Fighting off an ear infection. Web says that garlic is good for that.

    Sweating garlic. EVOO. S&P. Mixed it into ricotta to serve as the base for pizza bianco.

    Image Unavailable, Please Login
    Add a little mozz to the top. Oregano. And, garlic powder sprinkled on top.

    Garlicky goodness. Reminds me of the white pizza at Secret Pizza at the Cosmo in Vegas.

    After. I used the leftover garlic ricotta blend as a dipping sauce! Don't know if it'll make my ear infection any better, but I can tell you that we're not gonna have any problems with vampires tonight.

    More garlicky goodness to get rid of this blasted ear infection. Inspired by this recipe.

    https://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/chicken-garlic-ginger-healing-soup-474633

    One entire head of garlic. Half a white onion. Cajun seasoning. Black pepper. Ginger root, minced. Handful of chard from the garden, chiffonade. Turnip, instead of carrot. Celery, because I had it. Sweat all that for about 10 min. Throw in leftover tomatoes, pureed. Homemade chicken broth. Simmer. My ear feels better! The wife thinks it's the antibiotics ; I know better!

    Had my dad, mom and a brother over. Ended up ordering from a local place. They have four locations. Not bad.

    We ordered two larges. The meat lovers and house special: http://www.pizza24.ca/our-menu/#speciality-pizza

    Interviewing someone for a job today. Meeting them in Kelowna, BC. A three hour drive from me. Might spend the day there and grab dinner. Probably find a Japanese restaurant there.

    Lol, nah. Was at the store, grabbed a pack of normal Nathan's hot dogs, and saw those monsters. When I went to the bread aisle to grab buns, I noticed they had footlong buns and thought why not.

    Not sure why I thought I could eat 2 though, I ate one and took one bite from the second and realized I wasn't a hot dog eating champ. ;)
