Some dinner items for tonight...nothing complicated, just the essentials to whip up a quick bachelor's meal.

^You know, that sounds rather good! -I think I'll go to the market tomorrow and get some potatoes, onions and some sausages... fried and together (perhaps with a fried egg) it's just the thing

Made homemade chili with big chunks of ground beef. My culinary skills are "meh" at best but I know how to whip up a great bowl of thick, meaty and spicy chili.

^I love making chili, and make both chili and vegetarian chili pretty damned well, if I do say so myself. I've recently learned how to vastly improve my already exceptional chili con carne recipe by using the trick of a friend: cook it all day in beer.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I put oyster crackers in my chili. It's an old trick I learned in local restaurants and hangouts when I was a teenager in high school and it works like a charm...oyster crackers mixed in with chunky, spicy chili is incrediawesomeable.

I just trademarked that word. Hands off.

beer? hubs will love that! do you just add it to the recipe?


bought a TOS stamper set off eBay. no earthly use for it whatsoever, just like knowing I can stamp Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the Ent1701 on any surface I wish. Silly and intoxicating!

I'm guessing it's used the same way a (large) glass of red wine is used in other -more Mediterranean perhaps- ground beef stew recipes...

Squiggy in a Volt.

Sounds like the plot to a wacky and environmentally efficient new road comedy with lots of mooning and kilts.
