I'm a huge fan of improv....
Today I wanted to make vegetarian chili in the crockpot....well it turned into veggie chili since I'm out of ground turkey.
As I hunted through the pantry for 2 big cans of crushed tomatoes I found I was out - good and bad.
Good since that means my trip to shop rite will be most productive, bad because I thought I would have to use my smaller cans of diced tomatoes (I use those to stretch jarred pasta sauce and am down to 3)
Well after pulling out the cans of beans I needed (good stock rotating dinner) I saw 2 big cans of whole tomatoes.
Time to use those up and try out the food processor bowl on the ninja. The ones in juice I dumped in a pulsed until they were like crushed....the ones in purée I blended
Now it's all cooking away in the crockpot. The plan is to serve this pantry clean out Dinner with corn waffles tonight
