While I like slow cooked chili with tender chunks of beef, I sometimes just want a quick meal for a weekday. While I have been known to simply use a brand name chili, sometimes I like to go just a step further. This may take a few more minutes than simply opening a can, but the flavor is worth the effort.

Last Sunday we visited out friends in Fresno, Pat and Jim, who own a farm. With a large kitchen garden, it is risky to stop by their house or have them visit you. Last year, Pat showed up on our doorstep with a twenty pound bag of tomatoes. This year we got pepper bombed and a butternut squash literally the size of a baby. What am I going to do with a big bag of mixed peppers?
This is a weekday meal, so I usually do not go to all the effort that I put into my Sunday feasts. However, that does not mean that it should be bad for your or not taste good. “Quick” does not necessarily mean “bad.”
For the most part I try to make may own dressing for salads. However, I have not been able to replicate the flavor of Hidden Vally Ranch Coleslaw dressing. It simply tastes “right.”
