Well, we are approaching my favorite season.
Fall
Soup is just around the corner, and I can't wait.
Just did up a batch of killer chili verde a few days ago.
Roasted all veggies on the grill, and smoked them.
Used some carnitas as I did not have the time to smoke a pork butt.
Hell I even got Mexican neighbors asking me how I did it, or wondering if I have a Mexican wife.
I told'em Nope just this wheto

J,

I hear you! Ever since I left West Texas (23 years ago) I've been on the lookout for someone to make me Mexican food better than I can make it (TexMex). I still try restaurants, food carts, hole in the walls all over but unless I go home to see the parents.... NO GO. Once you develop that regional taste its hard to find it anywhere else.

I get little tastes here and there, but never a full meal deal, if you will...

Not sure you can call it leftovers, as I can't tell you how old the kimchi is, none the less, it was tasty ... Kimchi, chicken broth, fish sauce, and ramen noodle or rice

Made my first batch of Killer Chili with leftover Tri Tip for the year,
gotta watch out and try not to get burned out on chili.
But damn that s*** was good.

And yes the Ramen is very versatile, one of the first things I taught my boys when they were younger.
It sparked their exploratory side with food, and we used leftover meat to start them off.

Hey, what about a bowl of Ramen, and then strip down a bunch of hot wings to use as your base????

What is it with our weather,
Mid 80's during the day, and high 40's at night.
I want to grill, but I want soup also.
Arrrrrg, now I gotta figure out something for dinner

We were saying this last week. I made smoked chile verde today and it was so good! I'm ready for homemade soup weather....

I know, my sons wanted some potato soup and mix in the leftover rib eye steaks.
I was sweating in the kitchen with all the doors and windows open.

Man, it is hard to get motivated. Short sleeve weather during the day, and mid to high 20's at night.
I used some leftover pork tenderloin (grilled), and did a fried rice kinda thing.
Sauces, veggies, rice, and pork. Family did not want the scrambled eggs to top it off with.
