probably going to be snowed in again tomorrow night... suggestions?
I want to cook something warm and wonderful.... but I don't know what. (My problem is that I LOVE so many different foods that it's hard for me to decide.)

what do you think?

4. Sent this to MissHoney yesterday
I made a batch yesterday....OMG...it's sooooo good and the house smells wonderful...

Pasta e Fagioli


INGREDIENTS:

1 (10 ounce) meaty ham bone or smoked
pork hocks
2 cans white beans

1 (8 ounce) box elbow macaroni
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 stalks celery, diced
3 carrots, diced

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


1. Put ham bone, and 10 cups of chicken broth into a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours.
2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, rinse with cold water to chill, then set aside.
3. Heat olive oil over medium heat. Stir in onion and garlic, cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, celery, carrot, red pepper flakes. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the carrot has softened, about 10 minutes. While the tomato mixture simmers, remove the ham bone. Separate the meat from the bone; dice the meat and throw EVERYTHING in one big pot, Including the bone...the longer in the better the flavor).
4. To finish the soup, stir the beans, and add additional water if needed to make a chunky soup. Season to taste with salt and pepper; simmer until the macaroni and beans are both quite tender, from 5 to 15 minutes.
Garnish with parsley

Serve with crusty Bread and top with grated Parm....

8. Here is my favorite chili recipe
All American Chili

6 ounces hot turkey Italian sausage
2 cups chopped onion
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
8 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground sirloin
1 jalapeo pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cumin
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 bay leaves
1 1/4 cups Merlot or other fruity red wine
2 (28-ounce) cans whole tomatoes, undrained and coarsely chopped
2 (15-ounce) cans kidney beans, drained
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Remove casings from sausage. Add sausage, onion, and the next 4 ingredients (onion through jalapeo) to pan; cook 8 minutes or until sausage and beef are browned, stirring to crumble.
Add chili powder and the next 7 ingredients (chili powder through bay leaves), and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in wine, tomatoes, and kidney beans; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Uncover and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Discard the bay leaves. Sprinkle each serving with cheddar cheese.

Note: Like most chilis, this version tastes even better the next day.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups chili and 1 tablespoon cheese)

12. Stew!
There's no snow here, but for some reason, that sounds really good. I don't cook, so I have no recipes, but something that looks like this:



With warm homemade cornbread. :9
