Simple, Perfect Chili for a cold snowy day.

I rushed out Friday afternoon trying to beat the winter storm. Was not lucky, half way thru the store it was just a snowing. We get to the front door of the store and make a mad dash to get the groceries in and get out of the wet slush that is falling.  Made it home safe and pretty dry.  I will be away from home for a few days so I wanted to make Adam something he could eat on while I was gone. Chili is not my favorite thing to eat, I HATE BEANS!!!!!!!!!!!!! but I only added one can of pintos to this chili.
Ingredients are
cayenne pepper
chili powder
ground beef
tomato sauce
masa(corn flour)
optional: are pinto beans, kidney beans,jalapeno,diced tomato

first get ground beef and garlic cooking
then in a large pot I put the tomato sauce and all the spices
then once the meat cooked I added it to the sauce and spices and you are supposed to let it simmer for a hour but my mixture was too thick for that so I added the tomatoes and a little water to the pot and let it cook at once.
see too thick
now it is simmering for hour and it smells great!

I was still in a cooking mood so I decided to make the Pioneer Woman french breakfast puffs. I am not much on sweets, but my husband ate them up!

The ingredients are:
baking powder

cream the sugar and shorting

then add the milk and the flour and nutmeg

then fill 2/3 of the way and bake at 350

once they cool for a few minutes roll in butter and then in sugar and cinn
I just did the tops. I thought all of it was too much. Adam said they were great.

There are so many ways to name this one!

Pioneer woman calls it Egg in the Hole.  She also references 13 other ways to name this recipe. I made this for Adam for breakfast, I don't do eggs that well, working for McDonalds for over 2 years in high school, you would not want to eat them either. It was so simple, five minute total for the whole thing. So here is the steps.

The ingredients
sliced bread
black pepper

So simple

cut of holes(I used a glass)

cook for one minute then flip

Then plate

Try this sometime, it will be gone.
