Chili Chili Chili

October 18, 2010

Hello Internets Peoples,

The fall is upon us, along with the insanity of our jobs which makes a crock pot a wonderful invention. For those of you who are unfamiliar with a Crock Pot it is a wonderful invention where you can toss a bunch of stuff into a pot and forget about it all day  Pretty fricken fantastic, its like cooking for dummies.  It comes down to some simple ingredient preparation and recipe quantity.  Baker Girl did a fantastic job with researching a recipe and ingredient selection.  However, once we tossed it all together there was a lacking of tomato’s and meat.  Now this was the first time we made chili and the first time I have made chili with ground turkey.  The recipe was lacking in the zip zam and pow that any good chili should have.  Now to be honest I would have mixed up the meat with spices and sauces before I tossed the meat into the cooker.  It was a decent first attempt but it was nothing to enter into a contest, a nice warm meal on a fall evening.

    You guys need a little Indonesian Sambal in there. Just think about all those meals your Mom makes where she says “Oh, it it’s not spicy” and no one can eat it!

    I have been working on her for years to give the slow cooker a go. Her response is that “It is slow, too slow”. Ah well…..she is a great cook so what the heck.
