Auggie got me hungry already, and its only 8:15 AM. She is one that enjoys cooking maybe more than me. She has an amazing knack for presentation and her food or what I have tasted matches. She inspires me.
Warmed up some butter and garlic, painted onto mushroom, mixed up a bit of toms, mozzarella basil red onion, grilled bottom side down for about 2 mins, flipped, filled with mix and grilled about 5-6 more mins then topped with basil and balsamic redux, and then the OMG grilled garlic bread! How have I never made garlic bread on the grill!!! 😊
This may become regular rotation dinner
I went out to pick what might be to be the last batch of ripe tomatoes. Last year I had 5 pounds of Green tomatoes and made green tomato salsa. This year maybe a pound left still on the vine. What’s that saying what a difference a day makes well in this case a year. So back to Lyn, do you think we could make this? I jump on it and she helped a little but soon had disappeared to go shopping and what not. Did not bother me I in heaven in a kitchen.
Oh one thought I prefer a thicker chili so next time i might add some flour as last stage of sauteing the onions or maybe when I add the spices not sure any thoughts?
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 1 large onion
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp garlic powder

- 2 medium carrots diced
- 3 stalks of celery diced
- 2 medium red bell peppers diced

- 1 cup of sweet corn
- 1 can of beans your choice – I used black
- 2 cups of vegetable broth
- 1 tsp salt
- With food processor, crush the tomatoes and set aside
- Turn instant pot to saute and add Oil
- when it is hot add onion saute until translucent.
- add the garlic stir until you smell it
- Add celery, carrots, corn and bell pepper stir
- Add all spices and stir
- Maybe flour at this point what do you think?
- Add crushed tomatoes and broth and stir

- I let it naturally cool rather than release the pressure when done.
- remember to remove the bay leaves.
