Not a creature was stirring...

Old spoon (broken) and new spoon (not broken)

While making a crockpot full of chili I broke a wooden spoon in the attempt to stir said chili. This circumstance resulted in my going out to get a new, and hopefully more sturdy, wooden spoon.

Corn bread, bowl of non-meat chili, and pink lemonade

  • 1 can of spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can of tomatoes
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbs chili powder
  • 1 tbs tabasco sauce
  • 4 cups of hydrated beans
  • 1 cup of TVP1 "ground beef" before hydration
  • 1 cup of chopped onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 3 celery branches, chopped
  1. hydrate TVP1
  2. throw ingredients into crockpot
  3. cook in crockpot on low for 12 hours

The cornbread was made from the recipe that can be found in the Joy of Cooking. I multiplied the recipe by two and used the Baker's Secret petite loaf pan to make eight small loaves of corn bread.
