And I am posting here one of his photo experiments - the one he is most proud of, and has been published in a photo book of photographers.
If for one or another reason you 're not planning on the traditional turkey dinner on Thanksgiving Day, you might want to consider this delicious comfort food for this day.
My oldest daughter got away with several first prizes on chili-cookouts with her own variant of this recipe.
Personally I like this recipe because one does not have to think about soaking the beans overnight. But if that is a must in your chili, you can easily add the beans.
The only time I was ever on some kind of a diet was with the Suzanne's Summer's recipes. She separates the carbohydrates from the proteins. That means, simplistically explained, meat combined with veggies, or carbohydrates combined with veggies.What I like about this diet is that you can have the portions as big as you want.
My favorite recipe is a variant of Summer's Jalapeno Chili (her books are in the local libraries). Her recipe is too spicy for me, so I leave out the Jalapeno pepper when I make it. Also, her recipe calls for 6 Tablespoons of chili, which I reduced to 3-4 Tablespoons.
1 lb each of hot and sweet sausages
1/4 cup of olive oil
2 cups of onions, chopped
6 cloves (3 Tablespoons) garlic
1/2 lb. hamburger meat
2 red bell peppers
2 green bell peppers
1-6 Jalapeno peppers (seeded)
35 oz. can of tomatoes, drained
1 cup of dry white wine
1 cup of fresh parsley
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
3 Tablespoons chili powder
3 Tablespoons cumin
2 Tablespoons oregano
1 Tablespoon basil
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 Tablespoon fennel seeds
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 lb. fresh tomatoes
If the recipe is made for 1 or 2 people, the first half of the ingredients can be halved.
I don't scrimp on the spices!
Saute the sausage in olive oil: set aside. When cooled off cut in 1 inch pieces
Saute onions and garlic for about 5 minutes
Brown the hamburger meat
Add the bell peppers (and Jalapeno peppers)
Mix all ingredients up till now and cook for about 10 minutes.
Stir in all the spices.
At the end, stir in the fresh tomatoes
Serve with Jack cheese, sour cream and chopped green onions, if preferred. Of course cornbread to cool down the hot chili.
Serve another spoon of that chili, please!
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving Day!
