American Entree

BEEF CHILI CHEESE FRIES

INGREDIENTSBeefChiliCF-

1 yellow onion
5 cloves garlic
6 Roma tomatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin

2 cups beef broth

1 pound Four Mexican Cheeses (Yes, a pound)
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 teaspoon parsley

PREPARATION

Mince onion and garlic. Dice tomatoes. Add onion, garlic, and oil to skillet. Sauté for 5 minutes at medium-high heat or until onions soften. Stir frequently. Add beef, cayenne, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink. Stir occasionally.

Add Roma tomato, dice tomato, beef broth, French fries, cheese, and sour cream to skillet. Cook on medium-high heat to 10 minutes. Stir frequently. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Garnish with parsley and serve.

TIDBITS

1) The first known French fries were made in Belgium around 1680. Yay, Belgium. These first fries were a substitute for fried fish. Who knew?

2) Thomas Jefferson served French fries in the White House during his Presidency of 1801-1809. Oh, he also penned the Declaration of Independence and was responsible for the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. The many Louisianans who eat French fries of the Fourth of July are grateful.

3) The Rolling Stones sang about French fries in their 1964 song “Under the Boardwalk.” The Rolling Stones are British. Britain went to war with Germany in 1914 to preserve Belgian neutrality and Belgian French fries. Harsh words were said by all and the conflict went global. We are still living with the culinary consequences of the War To End All Wars.

Tarassaco E Patate (dandelions and potatoes)

Italian Entree

TARASSACO E PATATE
(dandelions and potatoes)

INGREDIENTSRomboBombo-

3 cups dandelion greens
6 medium brown potatoes
6 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

PREPARATION

Snip stems off dandelions greens. Cut potatoes into eighths. Mince garlic. Put potatoes in large pot with enough water to cover with an inch to spare. Boil potatoes on high heat for 20 minutes. Add dandelion greens. Boil on high heat for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and drain. While potato bits are boiling, add garlic and olive oil to pan. Sauté for 3 minutes on medium-high heat.

Combine potato/dandelion mix, sautéed garlic, and salt in bowl. Mix ingredients together with fork or spoon. Serve hot. (If guests say, “Eww, dandelions,” bonk them on the heat with your kitchen mallet because this tastes great.)

TIDBITS

1) The greatest dandelion song of all time is “Dandelion” by the Rolling Stones.

2) Rolling stones gather no moss.

3) Randy Moss was a famous pass receiver for the Minnesota Vikings.

4) The vikings terrorized Europe for hundreds of years during the Dark Ages.

5) It gets dark at night., but you can make it light again by turning on the light bulb. Thomas Alva Edison is credited with inventing the light bulb. The great inventor had a full set of teeth. So do lions.

6) The word “dandelion” derives for the French words “dents de lion” or “lions teeth” referring to serrated edges of the plant’s leaves.

7) Does anybody know if Mr. Edison possessed sharp teeth? If so, this herb could have been called “dandethomasalvaedison.”
