^I find it weird how in the US, so many laws are state-by-state. It must be so confusing.

I’ve got a pot of chili on the stove right now - chipotle chili with cornbread dumplings, to be exact. It’s cold and rainy here today, perfect chili weather.

That's pot roast, not roasted pot! :)

Joking aside, I must point out that medicinal MJ just became legal here, but because we have such a conservative state government, they've written the laws to make it virtually impossible to get a prescription or buy the product.

I made gado gado again. It’s become one of my go-to dishes when I want something easy and healthy.

I had to laugh though, when I went to the website to look up the recipe, and the top recipe there now is “one-pot mashed potatoes!” Aren’t mashed potatoes one-pot by default? How would you even make mashed potatoes in more than one pot?

^^^Yeah, that's kind odd. Mashed potatoes take only 1 pot. I've never made them any other way.

I made smokey chickpea lentil soup. It's been a go to soup for weeks I have no idea what to make.

Last night, I made red flannel hash, a mix of potatoes, onions, beets, and corned beef, topped with a runny egg.

Tonight, it's pasta in a creamy vodka-tomato-meat sauce.

^^That pasta sauce sounds good, CarryOn - I like to make penne alla vodka whenever we have leftover cream (usually from husband's ice cream making adventures), but I usually make it vegetarian. What kind of meat are you using? Ground beef? Do you just cook it and add it to the sauce?

One of our fave Italian restaurants does a penne alla vodka with smoked salmon. It's delicious.

^^^ Ok, normally I make it without meat and I use crushed tomatoes, but I happened to be following a new recipe, just for fun, and it called for using diced tomatoes and pureeing it.

Well, I had some bulk Italian sausage I needed to use up, so I browned that, threw in the onions and garlic, then the vodka, then the tomatoes.

Once the meat went in, that kind of cancelled out the purée part, so it ended up as chunky meat sauce.

I made pumpkin Mac and cheese with roasted Brussels sprouts tonight. I used a pie pumpkin I bought earlier this fall and had sitting on my porch to decorate for fall, and the cheeses were a combination of cheddar, Gouda, and Parmesan. Really hit the spot for me.

I love decorating with pumpkins for fall; it makes the porch look spiffy, and I just eat them when I get bored of them!

I'd made pierogis a week or so ago, and had leftover wonton wrappers from that, so I steamed some cabbage, carrot, and potato, chopped it up really finely, added some diced corned beef and some diced Swiss cheese, then baked those off and served with some locally made thousand island dressing.
