I've always had a problem with spaghetti noodles and chili as a combination. I was raised on Chili Con Carne with no introduction of pasta of any sort. Plus, it was hearty with a good viscosity, unlike the runny sauce of Cincinnati chili. We ate it (and still do) with oyster crackers or fresh bread and butter...a simple, stick-to-your-ribs meal all by itself.

Many years ago Skyline Chili opened a store in Mentor, and closed it in 6 months. Too many folks didn't care for the product, and not enough became repeat customers to keep them open. Yours looks thicker than the traditional sauce.

I love Cincy chili!
The Skyline closest to me is still open and usually fairly busy.
What I just had for lunch is Skyline from the store.
I prefer my own homemade though ;)

We grew up having Mother put elbow macaroni in the chili.
When I make a proper pot of standard chili, there is no pasta of any sort to be found.

Me and DW will be staying one more night with the kids & grandbaby. We had a late start today (baby girl stayed up til 4 this morninghttp://netcookingtalk.com/forums/images/smilies/Sushi1/wub.gifhttp://netcookingtalk.com/forums/images/smilies/g2/bonk.gif) with me cooking breakfast 4 times. What a circus. I went shopping and came back to make Pasta E Fagioli, baguettes, honey whole wheat bread and pork roast dinner. It all turned out great with the whole wheat getting sliced and bagged around 10 tonight.

Traditionally, I always made it with mashed potatoes, but yesterday I didn't. It reheated well in a hot dry skillet.

Never heard of spaetzle , Gota recipe Jev ? Looks perty tasty :wink:

Spaetzle Batter Recipe
Serves two adults

Fill a 3-5 qt stock pot with salted water and bring to a boil.

Ingredients
1 Cup of All Purpose flour (Bread Flour if you want chewy spaetzle)
1 Large egg
1 Pinch salt
1 t Basil (optional)
1 T Olive oil
1/4 C cold water +/-

This will yield 12 1/2 oz. of spaetzle noodles (I weighed it) which is about enough as a side dish for 2 adults. Double as needed.

Directions
In a 2 qt or larger bowl mix flour & salt (and optional basil at this time) to combine, then make a well in the center of the flour.

Add the egg and olive oil into the well, and combine them using a fork, pulling in a little flour at a time into the liquid until the fork is overwhelmed, then switch to a spatula. Add water as needed until all flour is combined and you have a batter that is not loose, but not to stiff either. The batter should drop off the spatula and not stick to it, and is now ready to use.

I like to spoon the finished spaetzle into ice cold water to stop the cooking process, then rinse and store them in the fridge after tossing them in a little bit of olive oil to keep them from sticking to themselves.

Here's a video showing how to cook them them the old school way.

YouTube - Spaetzle 101

Here is a video using a machine that you can buy online. The batter must be wetter when using this machine so it can flow into the holes. Just add some more water to get it to the consistency shown in the video.

YouTube - Making Spaetzle Take Two

If you have a food mill with holes at least 1/4" you can also use that. Smaller holes make it touch to push the dough through. I have a flat grater that I have used on the non-cutting side with a small bowl scraper, and it worked great. The holes are about 5/16".

Thanks for contributing, Jackie. Stay away from the gin next time you want to photograph your food.:yum::yum::yum: Just kidding.

Tonight I made a meatloaf topped with ketchup, brown sugar and bacon, along with riced potatoes and broccoli.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/P1030088.jpg

I also just pulled 6 pints of my spaghetti sauce from the water canner. Trying to store it this way because the sauce takes up too much space in the freezer, which has limited space. Since was the first time doing this, I learned that I'll make a double batch of sauce next time because of the time commitment. Getting all that canning stuff setup takes time, so you might as well put up lot of sauce rather than a little bit.

I'm honestly very impressed. Seriously. A great looking meal right down to the presentation. Every thought about trying out for "Hell's Kitchen"? I'm learning more all the time that there is a certain art to cooking and actually preparing a meal. If I applied to "Hell's Kitchen", all they'd do would be to tell me to get the hell out of the kitchen!

You would be surprised at how simple each of the items for this meal were to make. As PG said, a place like NetCookingTalk.com is where you learn the techniques to produce meals like this on a regular basis. No, it does not come overnight, but if you go into it with an attitude that you can learn to make delicious food that also presents well, your chances of success increase dramatically. Just remove "I can't" from your internal dictionary, and you're half way there.

Here's another tip...utilize the millions of free online videos that teach you how to make almost anything you can think of. Check this out to learn how to make Fettuccine Alfredo.

had a pan fried (in butter) extra thick pork chop. (I love my cast iron skillet)
about halfway through cooking, i added 1 small white onion, diced.
when the chops were done, they came out of the pan, and I added 1 more tablespoon butter, 1 tsp garlic paste, and a heaping cup or so of thawed calamari.
Cooked on medium for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
after dishing up he calamari & onions, I added 2 tablespoons asian style coarse ground garlic chili paste/sauce. (comes in a jar, made with sriracha peppers)

my sinuses are now clear, but lordy was it tasty!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Ravioli/P1030105.jpg

When I opened the freezer, I realized I didn't have enough raviolis, so I started making a batch when our son and his girl friend said they wanted to learn how to make them. I made the first dozen, then they took over and made the next 4 dozen. The apple didn't fall fare from the tree, because they took over and all I did was snap pictures...

I cooked up some Italian sweet sausage, lean ground beef and 1/2 C of diced sweet onions. In a 9x13 glass casserole dish, I layered sauce, ravioli (24 pieces), meat, sauce, Mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, 2nd layer of ravioli (24 more), remainder of the meat, more sauce and lots of mozzarella. It's now in the oven for 40-50 minutes at 350F.

Most folks don't equate pasta and chili but it is good. I don't add the cloves or the extra water. I cook the pasta separate and dish it into the bowls and put the chili over it. I don't like the noodles to absorb all the water. It is a hearty soup for a cold day. Add more carbs by crushing up saltines in the soup....that is what my dad does. He is from Louisville and this is how my grandmother made KY Chili.

Even though this is a repeat meal from a couple of weeks ago, it was still very good. A half batch of baguettes with Sirloin beef tips in red wine/chicken broth sauce with mire poix, over homemade semolina fettuccine that I made last night. The baguettes came out great, and DW even had two slices with dinner.

I made a mini version of Bam's Lazy Man's Lasagna, and had some homemade baguettes from yesterday to go with it. Me and the Mrs were just saying, this recipe is easier and just as good (or better) as making the old style lasagna, with half the work. I made this batch in a 6x6 Corningware dish, with my whole wheat & basil 5-cheese ravioli, along with my homemade Italian sausage and homemade spaghetti sauce (1 pint for this size dish).

Coat bottom of dish with sauce and first layer of ravioli

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Poor%20mans%20lasagna/P1030153.jpg

Over the ravioli put a layer of cooked Italian sausage, sauce and Mozzarella cheese.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Poor%20mans%20lasagna/P1030154.jpg

Time for the next layer of ravioli...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Poor%20mans%20lasagna/P1030155.jpg

Finally, top with a layer of cooked sausage, sauce and cheese (I used Mozzarella & Provolone for the topping, and pop in the oven for 40 minutes at 350F.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Poor%20mans%20lasagna/P1030156.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Poor%20mans%20lasagna/P1030158.jpg

It's a sensual experience of textures in this dish from the hot, stringy Mozzarella and Provolone cheeses and the chewy Italian sausage, then you get a burst of flavor when you bite through the skin of the ravioli and get that creamy gush of 5 different cheeses, all in a chunky tomato sauce with vibrant Italian seasonings. I'm ready for a smoke and a nap.http://netcookingtalk.com/forums/images/smilies/g1/yum.gifhttp://netcookingtalk.com/forums/images/smilies/g1/yum.gif

looking good Joe... this is a staple for me...so easy,quick and great flavors. like you said with half the workThe most time consuming part is cooking the sausage. I thought of making sausage ravioli so I could make one layer of cheese and one layer of meat ravioli, and avoid cooking the sausage. It literally takes less than 10 minutes to have this ready for the oven w/o the meat.

Jev, can you share your recipe for your twice baked potatoes?

Thanks, BobI don't have a recipe, but here's what I did. Scrub potatoes to remove all dirt, then bake till fully cooked (350F for 1 hr. for starters). Cut potatoes in half lengthwise,and scrape out innards leaving a bit near the skin for stability. You won't have much luck with stability with the sweet potato because of its thin skin, but you can shape them later on.

Put all the innards through a potato ricer, then mix in butter, sour cream, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Don't over season, but a hint of each spice is a nice flavor. Whip the potatoes with a hand held mixer or masher until smooth. Spoon the mixture back into the skins, top with shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or cheese of your choice), then put under the broiler to heat up and brown the tops. I made these in the morning and put them in the fridge all day, then the toaster oven on 375 for 20 minutes. Just make sure to watch them so they don't burn.

Enjoy

Going to deep fry a turkey this afternoon. This is my second attempt as the first was more or less a failure. We got to eat turkey but my wife was turned off as she didn't think it was done. I had a hard time keeping the grease hot with the propane tank sitting in a -10 degree day. I even had a torch on the tank to keep the propane tank providing enough gas. Today much warmer, propane tank has been sitting in the house all night and I have it rigged up to sit in a plastic tub so I can keep hot water over it. So should have plenty of heat this time.

What is even greater about it is little Jonas will come out to our house for his first time. So grandma and grandpa are pretty excited. Then depending on how mom feels he will watch the Superbowl hopefully sitting on my lap. Will try and take pictures as the day goes.

Propane boils at -47F, unless your tank is near empty you shouldn't have any issues unless you blast with about 35psi .......... :biggrin:

No, since I have lost weight I am always that way. At home in the evening I get so cold at times I fill the hot tub up with hot water and soak for about ten minutes. Or if I eat something hot I warm up. I wear more clothes now than I ever have. While in Maui last week the temp was 80 degrees with a bit of humidity and I was just right. I would run along the beech (dam that was great) but when I would stop I would get cold until I took a hot shower. Dr said it was normal for a person that has lost a lot of weight and would go away some day. You thinking something else? Should I go back on vacation?

You can nuke foods with a higher fat content (like BACON) successfully.
Most meats with a lower fat content won't turn out so well.. but I think you may have left it in too long.
I have made meatloaf in the microwave a lot, but you have to keep checking it, as it cooks from the inside out.
You knew that anyway. ;)

Well, we fired up the grill tonight.

It was ribeye steak, peppers, onions, spring onions, eggplant, asparagus and mushrooms. I don't think that I missed anything. We ate out on the back deck. Now it was the usual 3 beer grilling experience followed by a bottle of wine with the meal.

OK, now this is what got me. Late this afternoon, I went around and fogged the whole outdoors. I probably killed every bug in the whole county. When we were cooking and starting to eat there wasn't a bug to be seen. It was perfect. About half way through the meal we were assaulted by an influx of flying black beetles ... and I mean hundreds of them. This whole cloud just descended on us in the space of about 5 minutes. It took about 10 minutes to kill them all off but it didn't spoil the moment, it just delayed it a little. :yum:

Made a big batch of JEV's chicken kabobs for guests on Sunday. They were great with steamed shrimp and a variety of sides. Tonight the wife and I are having grilled sausages and baked beans made with her special mix. Too damn hot for a big meal. I will be sweating just grilling!

It's 93F here in Cleveland, and the A/C gave up the ghost around 10:30 this morning. Technician can't get here till tomorrow, so we're going out to eat. I would normally call someone else, but this is the contractor that replaced the condensing unit last June, so it's still under warranty. Gonna be a bitch sleeping tonight with just fans, but we;ll just offer it up for the poor souls in purgatory. :whistling: (old Catholic joke).

I bought a new toy today and made Ricotta whole wheat Cavatellis with my sauce and homemade meatballs. Delicious!

The "toy" makes short order of a pile of these babies. I can hardly wait to make some more with different dough variations.

I went to a place downtown on my break and requested a big fat BLT with mayo. They filled the order in a most righteous manner.:brows:

Dinner was made by our son in my kitchen, and it's nice to see he enjoys cooking like I do. He made Gorgonzola stuffed burgers done to perfection on the grill (hot pink center) and topped with another big slice of melted Gorgonzola cheese. Twice fried potatoes and baked beans topped with smokehouse bacon. Dessert was very-berry pie from the bakery, warmed up and topped with vanilla bean ice cream. A very nice Father's Day, and some nice gifts as well.

Those 4 big shrimpies actually were about as filling as a good piece of fish.
Besides, I had 4 more after that. :smile:

Just finished the last of yesterday's fettuccine alfredo for brunch, now thinking of heading to the grocery store for some dinner inspiration. Pretty hot here today, so it will be inside cooking. Son and girl friend will be here to do laundry and mooch a meal, so I better get going.

Meatloaf and riced potatoes smothered in a rich brown gravy slow simmered to meld the flavor of all the ingredients. Cukes & tomatoes from the garden, marinated all afternoon in a balsamic vinaigrette. Very yummy!
