Adding beans to chili is the moral equivalent of watering whiskey. :P

Get a rope...

Sorry REW--* I'm not a native Texan* But I'm fond of saying "I wasn't born here, but I came as soon as I could".* So I plead guilty to using hamburger meat, beans and even macaroni if this budget is tight.* I also plead guilty to water in my scotch and my Jack.* Will you ever forgive me? :

Re: Food for Cold Weather

Obviously you folks don't eat enough beans. If you eat them all the time, you adapt, and the adverse effects are minimal to nonexistent.

Eat Beans.

Re: Food for Cold Weather

I have had good luck with beans by soaking overnight and changing the water more than once, then cooking in the pressure cooker. Don't add anything acid before the beans are totally cooked, as this will toughen the skins.

Also, for the frugal-minded (and for vegetarians) you just cannot rule out beans!

Wildcat: Martha has done the rotation. I just do the layering thing. Plus I clean up the dog doo. I usually kick it loose form the ground and bag it. As you've seen, the dogs outfits are out and used. Long Johns after Xmas--unless I'm feeling like a tough guy.

I kick it loose and then "chip" it into the river with a nine iron.

Re: Food for Cold Weather

Split pea soup:
In a large pot, put 8 cups of water, 1 lb of split peas, 1 sliced smoked sausage, 1 or 2 pork hocks. (For the pork hocks you can substitute any bony pork part (neck bones, shank, knuckles) but don't skip this ingredient it.) Simmer uncovered for 1 hour.
Chop up 1 large carrot, onion, and celery stalk. Add this to the broth. Also add 1 tbsp thyme, a bayleaf, some salt, and if you want a bunch of parsley all tied up. Simmer uncovered for another hour.
Fish out the bones and parsley. Serve with bread and lots of freshly ground pepper.

Tim

And you go fishing in this river? Hope you don't have too many shore lunches near the house.

Re: Food for Cold Weather

It's cold and windy here right now and I'm having a big bowl of cream of wheat for supper, another one of those foods that warms you from the inside.

Re: Food for Cold Weather

I made a casserole with cabbage, onions, jalapeņos, garlic and Italian sausage. Covered with tomato sauce and cheese.

Quick, and good.

Re: Food for Cold Weather

Beef Vegetable soup for these Minnesota below zero (Celsius) days. And here they are always below zero (Celsius).

Get some good quality beef stock and add some leftover roast beef (shredded or in chunks). Add diced raw potatoe and chopped raw onion to taste and simmer until potatoes and onion are slightly tender (or slightly firm I guess). Then add a good quality tomato juice and any frozen cut up veggies you like - I like carrots, green beans, corn, and baby lima beans. Adjust amount of tomato juice so mixture doesn't taste too tomatoey or too beefy. Add Worcester sauce, salt, and pepper to taste. Simmer until piping hot and enjoy with a crusty bread or grilled cheese sammies. Warms you up all the way down.
