Nuts, I finally made something that didn't look like a failed science experiment, but I ate it before remembering to take pictures. Oh well...

I guess it was basically Chicken Paprikash with Spaetzle, but...

- running low on paprika so 50/50 mix of paprika and ancho chili powder, no peppers or tomatoes, but replaced a cup or so of broth with BBQ sauce, chicken (boneless thighs) seasoned with creole rub a couple of hours before cooking, yogurt instead of sour cream

- more seasoning than usual in the spaetzle, including a fair amount of white pepper

- spaetzle prepared by scraping vaguely noodle-shaped "lines" off the edge of a cutting board (then picking the spaetzle-to-be off the edge of the knife so it falls into the boiling water) rather than any of the less traditional methods

This was the first time the spaetzle seemed "just right"; tasty right out of the pot, and between the texture and the size (I guess size probably affects the way they cook) the spaetzle seemed a lot more substantial. Probably could have doubled the spaetzle-to-meat/sauce ratio and it still would have been good.


I LOVE spaetzle! Although I prefer it with a crispy outside and soft texture in the inside. I always take the cooked spaetzle out of the boiling water and into a frying pan with butter/oil and season as you go. A great neutral side dish that can be tweaked to anyones liking. It is great food as you know ;\) . I find any kitchen device that is flat and has holes (like the size of food strainer) that you can push the mixture through works great for making spaetzle. I have not had it in a long time. Thank you bridgman!

Wow, wid- that looks REALLY good!

I just ate a simpel dinner of spaghetti, but I had some fresh lettuce (several dif. kinds) from my dad's garden.

I can't wait till he brings me more veggies! It's the best looking garden ever.

It's funny, but I don't think I've ever heard of eating fresh lettuce before. In fact I don't even know what a "lettuce plant" (lettuce tree ? ;)) looks like. Damn, now I have to learn something again.

Dinner tonight was yummy, but the interesting thing is not just that it was yummy but how it *came* to be yummy.

Periodically I run across tasty looking vegetarian stew recipes and tell myself I should really make them more often, but none of the recipes have ever resulted in anything I would consider making a second time. Turns out I was approaching the problem the wrong way.

I was cleaning out the fridge tonight and making "leftover chili" - bits of bacon, beef, sausage, lots of onions / garlic / jalapenos, various spices, dollop of generic chili powder, the usual.

I had more spice lids fall off in the pot than happens in a typical evening, so the chili ended up too peppery - not really too hot, just too much pepper taste. It tasted a bit like a good jambalaya before adding the rice, which gave me ideas.

I figured it wouldn't hurt to dump in a few mushrooms to soak up the spices, but the plastic wrap fell of the mushroom tray as well so I ended up adding a whole pound of sliced mushrooms. Now it was too mushroom-y and still too pepper-y as well so I added some rice, lentils, and a whole lot more water. It had to simmer for an hour or so before all the "crunchy" disappeared, but (a) the result was yummy, and (b) now I know vegetarian-ish* stews can taste good I'm going to stop giving them the hairy eyeball and try making them some more.

* I know the dish was not vegetarian but (a) bacon is a vegetable in most European countries, and (b) the amount of other meats was very small compared to the finished result. It's close enough to vegetarian for me.

Not being a vegetarian, I do not feel restricted by that particular code of ethics, but I do enjoy lots of vegies in my food.

I have been making a not-quite vegetarian chili for years now. I start with a regular chili (with less ground beef) and toss in whatever vegies I have on hand. Works just fine.

Chili as a good one to work with because the beans act as a bit of a substitute for meat. I don't mean as protein, but the satisfied feeling you get from eating meat.

A good meal is about all of your senses being satisfied. Scarfing down a bunch of carrots will never give you the same satisfaction as scarfing down 6 ounces of meat.
