Today’s Menu: Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers

 

For Breakfast I had a Fried Sunny Side Up Egg, 4 Strips of Bacon, Toast, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I was hungry this morning and a good Breakfast sounded good. For the Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. It’s the only Bread I use. Both kinds that I use, the Wheat and 5 Seed, are only 1 Carb per slice! And the Breads are always Fresh and Delicious. Outside another day of Clouds and Rain. 64 degrees and rain on and off all day. I couldn’t get outside to do anything, so another day indoors. I did a few things around the house that needed done and that was my day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a package of Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers.

 

For Dinner tonight I’m having Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers. Nothing says comfort food more than a Skyline 3 Way! As always I used my favorite, the Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti. It comes packaged for the microwave, a bit smaller size than what you get at a Skyline but just right for those that want fewer calories and carbs than the normal size. It comes with Spaghetti topped with Skyline Chili. To prepare it, it couldn’t be easier!

 

It comes in a microwavable pouch. Easily prepared – Just shake the pouch. Then tear the corner off to vent while cooking. Place the pouch standing upright in the microwave. Then microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes. Let stand for 1 minute and it’s ready! And I needed this. I had not had this in a while and as always it really hit the spot!

 

Poured the Chili/Spaghetti into a bowl, added a couple of shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce, topped it with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a side of Skyline Oyster Crackers. And if you’re having Oyster Crackers, then Frank’s Red Hot Sauce is a must! Just add a few drops on top of the Crackers, it’s the local way to have your Oyster Crackers. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peah Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cheese and Tortilla Rounds

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had some rain showers this morning. We had a high of 67 degrees and cloudy for the day. I had a very rough night last night because of Phantom Pains. They started about 11:00 last night and continued till about 10:00 this morning. I spent the afternoon resting and catching up on some sleep. Hopefully better tomorrow. For Dinner tonight I prepared some 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cheese and Tortilla Rounds.

 

I made some of my Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chili last week and had a couple of containers in the freezer. I sat one of the containers in the fridge to thaw overnight. So it’s an easy dish to make tonight. I’ll need to heat up the leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili, Frank’s Hot Sauce, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Mission Tortilla Rounds. When making my Chili I use a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day! To make it I use; 2 – 1 lb. packages of Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breast, many Spices, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. To reheat; I just added the Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside until needed.

 

As I said I’m serving the Chili with some Frank’s Hot Sauce, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, and Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. For the Tortilla Chips I’m using Mission Tortilla Rounds.

 

To make it I got a bowl and made a bed of the Tortilla Rounds. Topped with some of the Chili, Hot Sauce, and Cheese. I had the Sour Cream on the side of the Bowl. Fantastic Light Meal. The Mission Tortilla Rounds are excellent Chips! I love using the 3 Bean Chili as many ways as I can, its so delicious! So for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread

 

 

To start this morning off I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread and topped with them I can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We have a high of 66 degrees with light rain showers on and off all day. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. What a better way than Chili to Celebrate the Autumn Season! For Dinner tonight it’s my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread.

 

I love making a batch of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili! To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey, 2 – 1lb. packages. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, a tablespoon of Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans),4 Cloves Minced Garlic, 2 tsp Ground Anchio Chile Pepper, 2 tsp Ground Paprika, 1 Tbs. Ground Chile Seasoning, 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon, 1 Tbsp of Cilantro Leaves and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it.

 

First thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

 

I prepared the Ground Turkey and Bean Mix last night and had it in the fridge. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it aside and mixed my Beans. I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed.

 

This morning I turned the Slow Cooker on Low, sprayed the cooker liner with Pam Non Stick Spray, and added a 1/2 cup of Water to it. Let heat for about 20 minutes and I added everything to the Crock Pot. I’ll be cooking my Chili for 6 – 7 hours. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after a couple of hours or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for meals , can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day! The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post.

 

I also prepared a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. The Cornbread goes perfect with Chili! Then for Dessert/Snack later some Reduced Fat Triscuits topped with Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili
Make a double batch of this quick vegetarian chili, full of black beans and sweet potatoes, and eat it for lunch the next day or freeze the extras for another night.

Grilled Bison-Mushroom Burgers
Adding smoky, umami-packed ground mushrooms to grilled burgers builds flavor and keeps things juicy while bumping up the patty size. This burger is super-tasty made with ground beef too, but we love bison as a sustainable alternative packed with rich flavor. Look for it in the meat section of well-stocked supermarkets……….

Buffalo and Black Bean Chili
In this healthy buffalo and black bean chili recipe, the buffalo is cooked with sweet red bell peppers and spiced with two types of chili powder, cocoa powder and espresso powder, making this chili mouthwatering and memorable. Ground buffalo, also known as ground bison, is a healthy alternative to ground beef because it’s naturally lower in fat and has a rich, delectable flavor. After all the ingredients are added to the pot, we like to slowly simmer our chili for close to an hour to develop the best flavor, but if you’re in a hurry, reduce the liquid by half and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes…………

Mexican Bison Stew
Mexican cooks are great at turning tough chunks of meat into delicious and tender stews. This one, which uses tougher cuts of bison, such as chuck or brisket, is flavored with chili powder, cumin and tequila. Serve with warm tortillas………….

Today’s Menu: Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers

 

For Breakfast it was a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 84 degrees and mostly sunny out, low humidity also. The last 4 days it’s been hazy sunshine. We are getting the smoke from the Oregon Forest Fires. At dusk the sky has been red caused from the ash particles in the air. I can imagine how terrible it must be out West. I spent most of the day moving all the smaller items back into the back bedroom. We had new flooring put in yesterday, and it looks great! Lot of work but it has to get done. So I took the easy way out for Dinner by using the microwave! For Dinner tonight I prepared a package of Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers.

 

After a long day of moving everything back into the spare room/pantry I wanted something easy to prepare. So why not some Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers. Nothing says comfort food more than a Skyline 3 Way! As always I used my favorite, the Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti. It comes packaged for the microwave, a bit smaller size than what you get at a Skyline but just right for those that want fewer calories and carbs than the normal size.

One of America’s Favorites – Chili Burger

July 19, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Chili burger with fries

A chili burger (also known as a chili size, or simply size, stemming from “hamburger size” is a type of hamburger. It consists of a hamburger, with the patty topped with chili con carne. It is often served open-faced, and sometimes the chili is served alongside the burger rather than on top. The chili may be served alone, or with cheese, onions, or occasionally tomatoes as garnishes.

Chili burgers appear to have been invented in the 1920s by Thomas M. “Ptomaine Tommy” DeForest, who founded a sawdust-floored all-night restaurant, “Ptomaine Tommy’s”, located in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles. Ptomaine Tommy’s was open from around 1919 to 1958, where his chili burger was referred to as “size”, and chopped onions as “flowers” or “violets”.

The term size for a chili burger arguably derives from the portion size of the chili used at Ptomaine Tommy’s. Ptomaine Tommy “had two ladles, a large and a small” with which to serve his chili, whether smothered on top of the burger or in a bowl; originally the ordering lingo used by his patrons was “hamburger size” vs. “steak size”, but later simplified to “size” and “oversize”. The use of the shorthand term “size” for burger-size portion of chili (in a bowl or on a burger) then gained currency throughout Los Angeles. Ptomaine Tommy was forced to close his restaurant August 10, 1958 and sell his property to satisfy creditors, and he died just a week later. His service to the community and his invention was noted by resolution of the California State Senate that same year. Food author John T. Edge considers the invention the milestone that marks the start of “traceable history of burgers in LA”, a first step to what he considers the “baroque” character of the Los Angeles hamburger scene. By interviewing former customers and friends decades after the fact, columnist Jack Smith wrote a definitive article in 1974 about DeForest and the dish that he had invented which became a very important part of the history of Los Angeles. What helped spread the popularity of this is dish was Deforest’s diverse clientel which included doctors coming off the late shift at the local county hospital, fight fans on their way home after attending matches at the Olympic Auditorium, and people associated with the Hollywood film industry.

The Carolina Burger is a regional variant of the chili burger served with coleslaw, mustard and chopped onions. Common in local restaurants in the Carolinas, it is also periodically offered at Wendy’s restaurants as the Carolina Classic.
