    Re: General Food Talk

    We got a chicken and artichoke sausage from Sam's that was also divine. Needed nothing to go with it.

    I received a most flattering call last night from an old friend I've known for 30 years. His mother and brother are opening a restaurant and they asked him if he would get a recipe for a breakfast casserole I make. The funny thing is that I haven't seen the mother or the brother in about 20 years, but they still remembered my casserole. They want to serve it in the restaurant. I said I would give it to them if they named it after me.

    Not sure which thread this belongs in, but do any of you grind your own coffee beans? I just recently bought the whole bean coffee, and it really IS better. I grind mine, then brew it in my percolator, and it is just as good as any coffeehouse!

    I have in the past ground my own. Now I buy the whole beans at Fresh Market and use their grinder. Never buy the coffee pot/grinder in one. What a huge freaking mess to try to clean. They are hard to clean. The grinder on it's on is much better. I do prefer to grind my beans, but my grinder finally ground down (groan, bad pun. ) and I never replaced it, so I grind in the store.

    They do, and it's wonderful! And costs less than the same version at the regular supermarkets. I also like the chicken sausage with mango (goes great with the lime-coconut jasmine rice!) as well as the apple with something else.

    Is that the same breakfast casserole that you've told us about, in the past, around Christmas? (With hash browns and all kinds of yumminess in it?) If so, I've still got the recipe, but I haven't made it yet.

    Made turkey chili today. Put water chestnuts in it, for the crunch. Looking forward to seeing how that works out. Why do we never make chili the same way twice? The last time, I added corn; that was good.

    Re: General Food Talk

    Iíve never understood why some people put sugar in their chili. I add vinegar, lots of garlic, and juice from a jar of hot peppers. What a zip!

    Confession about weird food preferences: I sometimes put a glob of mayonnaise on pizza when I eat it. Also like a tossed salad with cut up sausage/bratwurst and a bit of sauerkraut.

    Re: General Food Talk

    I sometimes put in a teaspoon or so of sugar to chili or spaghetti sauce just to cut the acidity of the tomatoes. I also add lots of garlic and spices as well (we like it hot).
