    I am going to post another favorite recipe in order to keep the thread somewhat on topic.

    This one is vegetarian and so so delicious

    Curried Yellow Split Pea Soup
    1 large red bell pepper
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 large diced carrot
    1 tsp finely chopped gingerroot
    2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    1 or 2 jalapeno chiles, seeded and chopped
    1 tablespoon hot chile oil or vegetable oil
    1 1/4 cup dried yellow split peas (also can use green)
    2 cups vegetable broth (or if you are not a strict vegetarian then you can use chicken broth)
    1 tablespoon curry powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
    1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk (you can also use a can of evaporated milk and 1 tsp of coconut flavoring)

    Cook bell pepper, onion, carrot, gingerroot, garlic, and chiles in oil in 3 quart saucepan, stirring occasionally,until onion is tender. Stir in remaining ingredients, heat to boiling, reduce heat. Cover and simmer until peas and potatoes are tender somewhere between 25 to 35 minutes (probably much closer to 35 minutes or longer).


    Enjoy. It can be a little spicy so if you don't like that then don't use the hot chile oil and only use one jalapeno.

    That's quite the assortment ingrediants. Sounds very tasty.

    And to think they're all for one and three for a dollar.

    Meals in a box FTW!

    Easily the healthiest meal I've had in the last 4 weeks.

    Not the name brand, mind you. I'm not made of money. :p

    Someday though, it'll be name brand cereal and dijon ketchups for me! :D

    Love the pie Grimby!

    Almost "CINNABON" Cinnamon Rolls

    Dough:
    2 1/4 tsp. yeast
    1 c. warm milk (105-110 degrees)
    1/2 c. sugar
    1/3 c. margarine, melted
    1 tsp. salt
    2 eggs
    4 c. flour

    Filling:
    1 c. brown sugar
    2 1/2 T. cinnamon
    1/3 c. soft margarine

    Icing:
    1/2 c. margarine
    1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
    1/4 c. cream cheese
    1/2 tsp. vanilla

    Dissolve yeast in warm milk; set aside. Mix sugar, margarine, and eggs. Mix flour and salt in sugar and yeast mixture. Knead until dough forms a large ball. Cover, and place in a warm area. Let rise for 1 hour or until dough doubles in size. Roll the dough 1/4" thick, 21" long x 16" wide. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Spread margarine over the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Roll up. Cut 1 1/2" long pieces from roll. Place in greased, round cake pans. Bake 10 minutes or until browned. Mix icing and top generously. Make 12 rolls.

    This was Yvette's idea....

    Introducing Flamin' Hot Cheetos Tacos! :D

    First, take an ordinary taco. (You'll never guess where I got mine!)
    [image=http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/4227/taco1zz5.jpg]


    You'll also need some Flamin' Hot Cheetos...
    [image=http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/4605/taco2ul8.jpg]


    ...and some hot sauce...
    [image=http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/4637/taco3kq9.jpg]


    Crush up a handful of Cheetos...
    [image=http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/2431/taco4cs8.jpg]


    Apply liberally, add your taco sauce, and presto! You've got a Flamin' Hot Cheetos Taco! :D

    That looks like a really good idea! I'm going to try it.

    My Border Sauce packet the other day proposed to me. The little message said "Will you marry me."

    The other one asked to drive.:rolleyes:

    The sauce packet in my picture says "I'm just doing this between films", and I actually keep it at my desk next to my computer. :p

    You say that now. But somewhere down the road you'll try it anyway.


    And you'll love it. ;)
