Homemade Pizza

Another thing to add to the list of things that are even tastier when homemade:

Granted, we didn’t actually make the crust all of the way from the flour (we have to try that sometime!), but we did make it from a packet rather that just buying a pre-made crust. Also, it’s really fun to roll out the crust.


Chili a la wok

One of my favorite dishes to make is a sort of chili. Since I don’t really have a strict recipe, it tends to vary wildly, but it’s always tasty and usually can feed me for a solid week.

As a rough outline, my “chili” usually contains:

  • some sort of meat (I’ve used ground beef, ground turkey, and chicken breast before)
  • vegetables (green peppers and onions at they very least)
  • starches (pasta, rice, and/or potatoes; I usually have at least two of these)
  • beans
  • tomatoes (canned, fresh, or tomato sauce; sometimes more than one)

Breaded things are tasty, but unfortunately I don’t have any breading. But what I do have is boxes of cornbread. Hmm. Wonder if that will work?
