eat what you store!
Do you know what this is? If you answered chili then you are correct but it's not just any chili.
I am still working on the food storage making it better organized and taking an inventory as I go. My food storage room is also grandson's bedroom during the week. For some reason I have missed rotating some chili. I found this jar of chili dated November 2008. It's almost 3 years old! This is my oldest meal-in-a-jar so I have plans for Friday night supper and it will be a fun meal for grandson before daughter picks him up for the week-end.
Friday morning after I got Grandson off to school and helped Papa Bear with the chores, I came inside to make homemade hot dog buns. Why did I make the buns? For one thing I was out and didn't want the 8 mile round trip to the store to find they may be out of buns and simply because I could. I have made these buns before and they are really good. They hold everything you can put on a hot dog and you can pick them up without them falling apart while you are eating them. You can either shape them into hamburger buns or hot dog buns. I use all the ingredients in the recipe but I use my bread machine on the dough cycle to mix and knead everything. As soon as the machine stops, I remove the dough and follow the recipe from there.
Friday afternoon after re-hydrating some onions I started frying them in a small amount of vegetable oil. I opened two pints of sliced canned potatoes, drained and rinsed them and added to my onions in the pan and cooked until everything browned.
I already had grilled wieners in the freezer so they only took a minute or so of thawing in the microwave and then we piled on the 3 year old chili and a sprinkling of grated cheese on top. Except for the extra buns I put in the freezer....there were no left overs!
