The first supper…

June 1, 2010 at 4:15 am 2 comments

The actual dinner on night one turned out to be eggs on toast.  With a couple of scoops of the crunchy peanut butter (something we don’t normally buy) on a spoon. Jen was enamored with the Oreos and the crunchy peanut butter – and scolded me for separating the candy out.  I said – IT’S NOT DINNER! 🙂

But, I sorted through some of the goods and came up with this recipe for a ‘Veggie Chili’

  1. 1 large can of diced tomatoes
  2. 1 large can of mixed beans
  3. 1 can of brown beans in tomato sauce
  4. 1 can of red kidney beans
  5. 1 full red pepper – chopped
  6. 1.5 cups of chopped mini carrots
  7. 5 chopped potatoes (with the skins intact)
  8. 1.5 cups of water
  9. Salt and pepper

Since we’re allowed three spices that were previously in our home, I used a pack of pre-made chili spice.  I may add a little flour and water to thicken it later.

This should provide Jen and I work lunches or dinners for a couple of days.

Looks like a bowl of Cheerios for breaky tomorrow.

      I originally called it Darren’s Surprise – but something tells me that’s not what your after here… 😉 It’s just a veggie chili that one can eat for any meal, really.
