All I've made today is cereal for breakfast, and a smoothie for a snack.
But, yesterday I made some REALLY yummy chili with ground turkey, a bit of chorizo, green bell pepper, diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, crushed red pepper, and a clove of garlic. Oh, and avocado on top. Duh.

I made deep fried buttermilk chicken last night, but it needed a bit more heat, so when I was using up the leftovers for dinner tonight, I gave it a push. I sliced up the fried chicken into half inch thick pieces and heated (and browned) them in my skillet with a little olive oil. I put a strip of bacon in there and quartered some baby portabella mushrooms and let them soften up in the pan too. When the chicken was warmed through I put the mushrooms on top of the chicken pieces and topped that with a slice of provolone cheese. I put this on a poppy seed roll that I'd dressed with some olive oil whip/curry/salt/pepper spread and heated in the toaster oven. Put the bacon on there of course, too. The curry and the salt and pepper really picked the chicken up nicely. One of the best sandwiches I've had in a long time.Bork bork bork.

This turned out GLORIOUS:
Tomato Cobbler Recipe | Martha Stewart
As sweet and delicious as summer's cherry tomatoes are raw, they become even more so when baked in this easy cobbler-style dish. Caramelized onion, garlic, and hot pepper reinforce the dish's savory side. A Gruyere drop-biscuit dough, spooned on top before the ensemble bakes, makes the cobbler work as a hearty side or a rustic main course.Cheese biscuits on top of the tomato filling soak up the juices.
- Used 1/3 grape tomatoes (needed to use them up) and 2/3 heirloom tomatoes from Trader Joe's
- Used half the recommended amount of cheese but substituted a stronger kind
Forgot the garlic, but it was still amazing.

I made a very simple turkeyless roast with root vegetables and served it with multigrain rolls and pumpkin "butter" (more like apple butter than dairy butter). I did very minimal cooking today, yet still managed to feed an omnivore and a mostly lacto-ovo vegetarian a 100 percent vegan meal that was so well prepared that the omni actually thanked me for the "turkey" and that he hoped I didn't mind he had a few pieces because it was "so good." No son, it was soy good, and you've been punked, happy Thanksgiving!

On Thursday morning:
Apple pie, with a mix of granny smith, cortland, fuji, & macintosh apples (+nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, lemon juice, a pinch of brown sugar, & flour). Crust came out a bit darker than I'd prefer, but everyone still liked it. I'm not an apple pie person, myself, so it doesn't matter, I guess.
*note: no epoxy went into the pie- I got that to hack my Keurig 2.0.
