That looks so good OBB. Are the multi colored balls on the plate at right the meatballs? So they are a variety of flavors and ingredients?

Brunswick stew and cornbread

I put together a few different recipes for the stew that I found online to make my own and it turned out just how we like it. Mr. Spring almost came outta his chair "MmmmmMMM, damn babe, this is good!" Gotta love a good response.

I also made cornbread a little different tonight and it was really good too. Thank goodness for a good meal.

Green chicken chili
Cornbread

It was good, but missing something and of course I'm not good at figuring out what that "something" is.

Not cooking it in the slow cooker.

For real, though, actual toasting and sautéing of dried spices releases their flavor (especially with certain herbs and spices being fat soluble), not to mention that tomatillos have the water cooked out of them, their flavor intensified.


Acidic tomatillos would make beans cook slowly. That recipe seems so counter-intuitive.

The beans were perfect and it had a nice broth, it was just missing...something. I meant to add some cilantro to the individual bowls and I forgot, but that would have helped.

If I make it again I'll do it stove top and see how it turns out. I know one thing, my hands do NOT like jalapenos. I only diced up three, but later that evening I kept wondering why my hands felt sunburned and then I realized why.

This take 45 minutes.

No tomatillos. It's a straight up chili. Cooked beans, so less liquid and no need for masa harina.

I'll give that one a go next time, thanks!

Well, after I buy gloves to wear while chopping the jalapenos.

That looks good curlylaura! Their chicken pot pie recipe also looks delish!

I'm having venison and gravy over noodles, peas, pears. Feel the need for some carbs today.
