But really, it's almost the exact same recipe I used last time...except for one thing - I added in half a jar of jalapenos that was sitting in my cupboard, juice and all. And that little addition added just enough spice to make the chili even more delicious, to the point I may make this a more regular thing. I should probably also start adding chilies more often.
That said, I saw this white chili the other day on Reddit that looks super delicious, and I may have to try making this sometime, especially since my boyfriend loves chicken.
I did, however, experiment with making some hushpuppies. They came out alright, but I did end up cooking them a touch too long.
- 1/2 Cup flour
- 1/2 Cup Corn Meal
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 Egg, Beaten
- 2 Tablespoons Milk
- 1 tsp. Baking Powder
- 1 Tablespoon Cajun Seasoning
The sugar can be adjusted depending on how sweet you want these - I added slightly less than 1/4 of a cup, and that seemed to be just about perfect.
That day, I also received a (somewhat) surprise package - I had signed up for a secret santa exchange online months ago, and while I had sent out my gift in December (which included some fudge, which I'll make and discuss here one day), my gifter was a little behind on his shipment. In any case, my package did arrive on Monday - here's what came.
Candy and processed food is bad, blah blah...oh! Are those jelly beans? I haven't had jelly beans in years.
Look at these things.
Anyways, yesterday was pretty boring for food. I ate a bowl of honeycomb and two bowls of leftover chili. And more candy.
By the way, those Sour Patch Watermelon candies? Delicious.
