meals in bowls

We love eating out of bowls. Big bowls. Small bowls. Round. Square. Fill 'em all with good stuff.

pulled pork green chile chili

My foodie friend, Nancy, who's host of Empower Radio's 'The Dish' has a motto~~'cook once, eat twice'~~that's how this recipe came about. I'd done a pork shoulder roast and had plenty of it to go from dinner to sandwiches and now to this chili. That's the great thing about roasts~~buy one a good size then after you cook it, if it's all not eaten then you have endless possibilities for other dishes~~yes, total reinvention. So just put the leftover roasted meat in freezer bags, label them, and then when you're ready to re-invent, your meat awaits you!

One of my most favorite Italian dishes is chicken marsala~~I mean when I go to a really authentic Italian restaurant, that's what I oftentimes order, and even when I go to a great chain like Carabbas, yep, it's chicken marsala for me! Since I'd seen a new Campbell's product at the store, their packaged marsala sauce, I thought I'd give it a whirl in a new twist~~making a chicken marsala soup~~I mean I could put all the essential things in it and even add more mushrooms since the sauce had only a few, like I could count them on my one hand. Overall, this sauce has nice flavors and made the making of this soup pretty painless and easy~~sometimes life just calls for that, right? Here's to ~peace and making life easier~ xoxo ally
