I made a chicken caccitore dish today, but I didn't have any green peppers (which I think are important for the dish).

I browned three slices of bacon, then browned the chicken and onions and garlic in the bacon fat. I removed that, crumbled the bacon, and deglazed the skillet with chianti. It all went into the slow cooker with my homemade spaghetti sauce and some thickly sliced button mushrooms and a bay leaf. We're serving it with rice (just added it to the slow cooker) and a brocolli/cauliflower mix, and of course chianti to drink.

My house smells so good!

I only feel like cooking about once a month or so, but when I do I enjoy it!

I'm jealous Yooper, if Maine was a little closer to Michigan I'd try to invite myself over!
I can almost smell your kitchen from here.
We haven't done our "Big Shop" for the week yet, so the boys and I are having grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup and carrot sticks. Paired with a nice Elmo juice

Daddy might break out a red ale to have with supper though.... homebrew goes well with just about anything.

It really was good! The chianti was nice with it, but the Sierra Nevada Torpedo for after dinner really hits the spot!

That sounds good! I might have to look that recipe up. I also had a Torpedo this weekend. Good stuff. Christmas gift from the wife.

You should retire so you can cook more.

Sounds delicious, always looking for tasty crockpot recipes.

I made southern fried chicken in the ole cast-iron skillet yesterday (with baked mac & cheese and sauteed asparagus). I'm still stuffed!
