After considerable research, I’ve learned that cooks shouldn’t try to water down tomato paste and make it into tomato sauce. That said, or learned, our menu for this evening changed in a Big Way. Goodbye homemade chili and Hello Denny’s. Actually our homemade chili comes from a packet but you do have to add meat, tomato sauce, and beans to it. While writing this post I did another search, for simple chili recipes and found one I want to try: Beefy Cowboy Chili over on the Rot-Tel site.
Did you know that when Walt Disney would travel, even overseas, he’d pack cans of chili and packages of crackers and have that for meals? I swear he was related to my Dad in that respect. I never open a package of Premium Saltines I don’t think of Walt and of course, Dad. One of our great lunch favorites when we would be out moving cattle or on a long road trip: Crackers, hard boiled eggs and a few cans of Vienna Sausages. No, I haven’t read the ingredients on those cans, and no I never will. I would do nothing to destroy the memories that little meal brings to mind.
If you were wondering what to cook one night, between the holidays, I suggest a good chili, and some crackers. Just the thing to stir up in your Drake Homes Inc kitchen!
