I’m so glad to have my kitchen mojo back. I’ve been making lots of good, old fashioned, cold weather comfort food – chicken parmigiano, flounder stuffed with crabmeat and spicy chili loaded with veggies.
The house always smells so good when you put on a pot of sauce and let it simmer on the back burner for a few hours.
And, what a quick simple dinner we had when I brought home some crabmeat stuffed flounder that just had to be baked in the oven for 20 minutes.
Baked with a pat of butter, a sprinkle of garlic powder, salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon, it comes out of the oven moist and delicious.
Add a few potatoes and broccoli and yum!
And one of my cold weather favorites – chili.
A pile of veggies…
ground beef or turkey, beans, crushed tomatoes and spices…
Of course, I have to add some crushed red pepper, a bit of cheese and a swirl of olive oil. Perfect on those cold, rainy evenings we’ve been having.
Next week the kitchen will be filled with the wonderful fragrances of Thanksgiving. And, oh, the baking! Grandmas’ apple turnovers, pumpkin cupcakes and a couple of pies – I’m really looking forward to it.
What’s been going on in your kitchen this week? I hope you’re enjoying the deliciousness of the season as much as I am.
Thank you all so much for your comments. I really enjoy reading each and everyone of them.
