The recipes that you are likely to read about in here are things that I have personally made and tasted but some are going to sound weird. Weird can be good. There was this guy named Oscar that I dated once, um but that's another story for another time.

Chili and Eggs, not two foods you would ordinarily think of at the same time but it works well. You can make as much or as little as you want by adjusting the ingredients and this is not something that tastes all that good reheated later so eat up. Typically I make it for two of us and it is a meal in itself so you don't need anything extra except toast or English muffins and your favorite jelly or jam. I could eat this morning, noon or night but you might want to try it for dinner first.

Shopping list: Eggs; large can of Hormel chili with beans; can of chopped chilies (I like the mild ones), a large onion diced; chopped green peppers (optional); a bag of cheddar cheese and a couple of teaspoons of oleo or butter.

In a skillet, add the butter over medium low heat. Next add 1/2 the onions and the green peppers and saute. Beat the hell out of six-eight eggs depending on their size, (of course I like the extra large or jumbos being the size queen that I am). I like to add a little milk to the eggs but that's up to you. Most cooks add water but again, I don't drink that stuff. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and stir them to make scrambled eggs. When the eggs are just about as hard as you would normally serve them, empty the can of chili over top of the eggs and heat until the beans are hot (only a couple of minutes). Remove and put directly onto the plates and garnish with the rest of the onions and top with the cheddar cheese and you're ready to starting eating. To avoid heartburn later, I drink a large glass of milk with this meal or you can keep a roll of Tums or Rolaids handy for later. Quick, easy and it tastes wonderful. I hope you will try this because I know it will quickly become one of your favorites.

Till next time, I'm Stella (aren't you glad you're not)

Loved your suggestion for the eggs and chili -my son-in-law might not like it but then, he's not into spices ya know.
Take care, Buddy!
