We got a great coupon, so pizza delivery and red wine it is.

Broccoli cheese soup. Making a BIG batch. Enough for dinner for us and dinner tonight and lunch tomorrow for a friend. She just had surgery today and this is her comfort food.

There's nothing like a big bowl of your favorite comfort soup when you're healing. I hope she heals quickly!

I had boiled potatoes, sauteed cabbage and pears (I had pears in my kitchen) and tofu in a honey mustard sauce. My vegetarian ode to German food.

I forgot Meatless Monday yesterday, so tonight we had tandoori sweet potato salad (http://www.skinnytaste.com/2013/03/kumara-sweet-potato-tandoori-salad.html) and bread. This is pretty much the best dinner: super filling, flavorful, insanely healthy, and cheap to make. We have it probably once a week.

Last night was chili con carne. Unfortunately, it meant using my last jar of Santa Cruz red chili paste. My next trip to Arizona is a long way off. For those if you in southern Arizona:

1 jar of Santa Cruz Red Chili paste
2 lbs stew beef or pork, fat trimmed
3 cups beef stock
1 clove of garlic minced
3 tbls flour
1 tbls oil
2 tbls small pearl tapioca

Dredge beef in flour.  Heat a large pan over med- high heat. Brown the meat and transfer to crock pot. Take the beef stock and deglaze the pan. Transfer liquid to crock pot. Add the chili paste, garlic and tapioca. Stir contents then cover. Cook on high heat for 3.5-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours. Serve with warm flour tortillas.

How was yours? Mine was so-so. I'd love to try a different recipe sometime. It wasn't bad it just wasn't great. I felt like there was some flavor missing.

Pretty good--ours is actually a broccoli, cheese, and chicken soup.  We used 2-year aged sharp cheddar for the cheese, which gave it a fairly strong flavor.  DH also experimented a bit by using corn starch this time instead of flour to thicken it and had to play around with how much liquid he used in order to compensate for the difference, but it turned out pretty tasty.  DD (14 months) wasn't as much of a fan, though.  :P
