  1. Well thanks KK. It's not quite as good as regular chili but it's a darn good alternative for me at the moment. It's a filling and satisfying meal that's still good for us. It's also really good on a baked potato.
  2. Thanks len. I'll have to do a little experimenting with some spice and see how I like it.
  3. Thanks John. No I haven't done that but it sound like it would be worth a try. Thanks for the tip.
  4. Wanted to try out one of my new knives so decided what better way that to make some Pico de Gallo. Sorry I didn’t get any pics as I was filming a video instead. (Video link below) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpc7ojxlHUA&t=19s Thanks for watching. The recipe is in the video but not listed in writing. I shared it on this site before so if you don’t want to listen to the entire video you can hit this link instead.
  5. Wow adm! Those are nice knives. A far cry from the cheapy Mercer I just purchased for the occasional use on a vacation or at a bbq gathering.
  6. Thanks Jeffie. I'm assuming these cottages are far from a local super market so the kitchen box sounds to a great idea. As you stated " having only 30 year old, burnt, thin frying pans and butter knives disguised as “chef knives"." gets old and this knife and roll is my response. The pans at this last one were usable but the skillets were straight out of the 70's. Old Teflon pans where the Teflon was mostly going or gone already. We weren't going to use them under any circumstance. Luckily we were visiting family up there so we borrowed one of their skillets to cook with. These Ai
  7. Saw a video of this grill just the other day. It looks intriguing but it's grill grate is only 18" around. I agree that it's way over priced for such a small grill.
  8. Thanks John. I do love my Miyabi Artisans. I wanted a Nakiri but they don't make a Nakiri or a Bunka in that series so that is why I purchased the Enso. It's real nice as well but the handle isn't quite as comfortable the the Artisan's. (If I ad to choose between them)
  9. If I had stopped at the cheap Mercer knife, I had purchased from Amazon I’d have been fine. (See previous thread) Unfortunately, there was a sale over Labor Day at Cutlery and More, so my wife is now mad at me because I purchased 3 more new knives. She suggested I have a problem and to this I must agree. I didn’t “need” any of these knives, but one was such a good price and the other two are, as Old Man Parker said on Christmas Story, “Indescribably Beautiful!”. Below is a short video of the objects of my wife’s wrath. This first knife is a 9” Dragon Storm Chef’s knife by A
  10. Thanks Scott. Got both the knife and roll from Amazon. As I said, the knife was $18.00 and the roll I thinks was $26.99
  11. The last time we rented an Airbnb I vowed to buy a knife roll and bring some of my knives with me so I could have the use of sharp knives instead on the dull knives they always seem to have. (It’s not that they need to be expensive, but if they were at least sharp I wouldn’t complain) Well we just got back from spending a week in Reno at an Airbnb and you can guess how the knives were. So, I’ve made good on my vow and got myself a cheap knife roll. I also purchased this Mercer Millenia 8” chef knife to go in it. As I said they don’t need to supply expensive knives and t
  12. I picked up 2 lb. of 98% fat free ground turkey breast the other day. I made some more of the 4 bean Turkey Chili I made a month ago with it but this time it was virtually free of points. (Only 1 WW Purple point) I diced up all the onions and peppers, mixed up the spices. Here are most of the ingredients. 1 ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil 2 lb. Pounds 98/7 Lean Ground Turkey ½ Yellow Onion (Diced) ½ Red Onion (Diced) I Poblano Pepper (Diced) 1 Red Bell Pepper (Diced) 1 ½ Teaspoons Minced Garlic 1 6 Oz. Can Diced Green

    I'll be following this thread for your interpretation of an RV. To me this will always be the quintessential R Veeeeeeee!
  14. With the wife and I on the Weight Watchers plan, I’ve been avoiding some of my favorite Mexican dishes. Now that I think about it, this really isn’t necessary if I’m carefully what I choose and how I prepare the dishes. Take fajitas for example. A protein, seasoning and some veggies. Made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts and not much oil the fajitas themselves are only 1 point per serving. I can live with a diet that includes chicken fajitas, can’t you? Well, that leads me to the sides. Made carefully many of the sides are 0 to only 2 points per serving. Follow along with me and I’ll sh
  15. In my wonderings though the grocery store I happen to spy 1 lb. of ground turkey on sale for $.99 but it needed to be used or froze by the 10th. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make with it but since both my wife and I on doing the Weight Watcher’s thing, I decided to put it in my cart. My first thought was to mix it into some pasta sauce I still had sitting in the pantry for meat sauce. I then pointed the pasta sauce and it was off the charts high, so I rethought what else I could make. My wife suggested Turkey Chili. I liked that idea so that’s what I went with. I searched the web for rec
  16. My wife and I have been cooped up in our house for 2 weeks so we decided to take a drive just to get out. We drove down to Downtown San Diego to see what things were like and found a virtual ghost town. This video shows us driving up 5th in the Gaslamp District. Normally there would be thousands of people on the sidewalks and bumper to bumper traffic. Pretty surreal!
  17. I’m really getting into wok cooking. Here a cook I did last Sunday for Dinner. Here are most the ingredients. Ingredient List: 2 Tbsp light soy sauce 1 Tbsp oyster sauce 1 Tsp Siracha 1 Tbsp butter 2 eggs, beaten, seasoned with salt 2 Tbsp cooking oil (I used Sesame) 2 cloves garlic, chopped (approximately 1 1/2 tsp) 1 1/2 tsp chopped ginger 1/2 cup small diced onion (approximately 1/2 of medium size onion) 1 boneless skinless chicken thighs (approximately 4 to 5 oz) (I used Chicken Breast) 1/4 cup carrot, sma
  18. Our lemon tree is loaded with lemons, so I looked up things to cook with lemons. Chicken Scallopini uses lemon juice so I looked up a recipe and came up with this. Ingredients: 2 Chicken Breasts (Boneless & Skinless – Cut in half) 1/4 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. black pepper 1/4 cup Flour 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs 1 tbsp. butter 2 tbsp. capers 1 tsp. minced parsley (and some for garnish) 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 1/4 cup dry white wine (I used Chardonnay) Cooking spray for pan I started out covering my counter with pla
  19. And breakfast today = Another (although slightly different) Mexican Egg Skillet. Here it is plated.
  20. OK I guess I should read the entire thread before responding. I now see where you said you didn't get a normal looking Tri-Tip. Sorry for pointing out something you already knew.
  21. Oh and another thing to know. It's important to crave the Tri-Tip properly for the best results. Tri-Tip can be slightly tricky as the gain changes direction. Here is a You Tube video that explains it better than I ever could. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmxHmuV4vTU
  22. Arthur, I just happened to open and read this thread and since I'm an avid loving of Trip-Tip I thought I'd weight in. 1. Let me start off by saying that I'm not trying to come off as criticizing you or your method of cooking it. 2. The German version of Tri-Tip doesn't look like a Tri-Tip as we know them here in SoCal. (see the pics below for what they should look like) Tri-Tip was a cut of meat that started out here in Santa Maria California. That makes it somewhat of a regional cut of meat that isn't always available in every other region. 3.
  23. Thanks Jeffie. And FYI: The wheat toast is the gluten.
