    Full list of ingredients, including 3 chicken breasts diced fine.
    20210114_143635.jpg
    The onion,garlic, tomatoes, chili pepper, and spices need to be chunky salsa in texture. I used a food processor on the pulse setting...

    You cant cook tomatoes in it! It'll ruin the seasoning! Uh Huh....
    20210114_185409.jpg
    Mexican Chicken Noodle Soup. So easy guys! Puree in, 2-3 minutes. Chicken in, 5-6 minutes. Chicken broth in, simmer 6-8 minutes. Noodles in, simmer additional 11-12 minutes. Mildly spicy ,garnish with avocado and lime wedges.
    What do you think? :)

    Well of course we went from sunny n breezy to grey and dreary...
    20210121_172422.jpg
    But soon,very soon, it will be warm n sunny and we'll all want to be outside right?
    This is adapted from "Sopa de Albondigas". (Honduran meatball soup)
    20210119_135227.jpg
    You'll need some spices. (Pre-mix is fine,the recipe is on pinterest. )
    20210119_142118.jpg
    It calls for beef broth, I made 1 portion here and used 1 canned...
    20210119_180649.jpg
    Just a couple of canned ingredients..

    Well,it just wouldn't be fun cooking without friends around right?

    20210121_150612.jpg
    I used these, but a 1/2 block of hamburger would work just as good.( It would stay frozen longer too. )

    20210121_165810.jpg
    So you just brown the meatballs...

    20210121_172326.jpg
    Then add your vegetables, beef broth, and spices, simmer for 12-15 minutes, and serve it.
    So easy. You could do this on a Coleman sitting on a dock. Grab the kids (or grandkids ya grouchy old geezers) and find a place to go....why sit around in the house?!!

    Lemon Chicken Picatta. Souped up of course, wouldn't be fun any other way. :)
    20210122_144958.jpg
    Start by mixing these,

    20210123_123429.jpg
    Some noodles, cooked 9 minutes, drained,rinsed,then coated by several cloves of mammoth garlic browned in butter

    20210123_124115.jpg
    Prepping some vegetation (not in the original recipes at all. ;) )

    20210123_131618.jpg
    and put a thin coating on your chicken.

    There is some doggie weirdness goin on in my kitchen..

    20210123_140756.jpg
    Brown your chicken, butter and olive oil. Then rest it but leave the scrapings in the pan

    20210123_143318.jpg
    Then saute your veg, small bits of butter,seasoning, and with a lid. Just to "mostly done". Then pour in 3/4 cup of chicken stock,1/4 dry white wine,1/4 lemon juice, a couple of tablespoons of capers and go to high simmer 5-7 minutes.

    20210123_145214.jpg
    Nest your chicken in,top with thin lemon slices,parsley, and a couple sprigs of rosemary. Reduce to low simmer another 7-8 minutes...put it on the table. Not hard to do and just full of unique zesty flavors. :)

    What sounds good on a cool evening but is fast and easy? How about Shrimp Scampi with some New Orleans spice?
    20210125_135849.jpg
    These should do the trick

    20210128_123217.jpg
    These to soup it up..

    20210128_151553.jpg

    I really like how all the ingredients are simple but the title sounds imposing. You make cooking look easy!

    it is easy, :) Guarantee you there are a lot of “make a reservation/sit down/ eat by dim candlelight so you can’t see your tiny little portion of food” places that don’t want you to figure that out.

    It says pork shoulder but...
    20210130_095509.jpg
    These are much nicer.
    20210130_131135.jpg
    Is this "bushcrafty'er" enough for me to be in the club? :D
    20210130_173806.jpg
    It says to pull the meat and shred it, then mix it back in. Because I did find a small amount of stuck on in the pot I went this route. It was definitely flavorful and not what I was expecting. Good and zingy. :)
