The hard part is digging the guts out after the 1st baking. I have trouble not ripping the skin. 

My tips:. Start with  big russets easier to carve out and a good light baking and mashing potato.

Don't scoop out too close to the skin edge of the potato give yourself some room to work.

I like to take a good sharp knife and after cutting off your potato lid take the point of the knife and start by cutting straight down to start cutting up your filling before scooping out the filling with a small or large spoon depending on how good you are scooping out the filling. Go slow don't hurry yourself getting it out making sure you leave a good wall all around the inside of the potato.  

The same with filling in the inside go slow so you don't tear out the side walls.

It just takes a little practice and in no time you will get the hang of it.

Then just figure out which ingredients you like, mild or sharp cheddar is a  delicious choice and enjoy !  :D

I've never tried Cincinnati Chili but you can put chili over macaroni or other pastas as a thick spaghetti sauce with decent results.

Adding cheese might be like putting cheese on chili or pasta.  Try it !

-And- for a real quick, easy, economical meal grab some of the pasta you have on the shelf make it according to package directions.  Open and heat can of chili  and pour over the pasta when done.  On top of everything add shredded cheese and maybe hot 🔥 pepper flakes.

You have chili pasta !  

Then bon appetit !  ( interjection French. (I wish you) a hearty appetite. )

Food can be very subjective varying from state to state or region to region and for sure county to county.

Subjective - adjective

1. existing in the mind; belonging to the thinking subject rather than to the object of thought (opposed to objective).
2. pertaining to or characteristic of an individual; personal; individual:a subjective evaluation.
3. placing excessive emphasis on one's own moods, attitudes, opinions, etc.; unduly egocentric.

My favorite cafeteria food in Junior High.

Never gets old and it's still quick and easy.   You can vary the mushrooms for a varied taste.

Buttons or baby (porta)bellos or crementi or shiitake or whatever you like.    ;)

My wife liked them in school.  Easy to make you hungry for a quick meal.

Even a guy can buy ground meat, onions, a package of mushrooms or two, beef broth and some staples in the pantry and throw them together for a meal with a good side like mashed potatoes (see refrigerated section) maybe some creamed spinach, mmmmmm.   Beats fries and a burger !!!!

Bon appetit !   :D

Feeling under the weather this weekend so easy soup of some sort was the plan for game day.   Winged it and made what I’ll call Keto Lazy Red Chicken chili. When I say lazy I mean I wanted as little prep work as possible. 1 large onion diced and sautéed. 4 cups of canned chicken, 4 10 oz. cans of undrained diced tomatoes, 2 cups chicken stock, 2 small cans of diced hit hatch Chile’s, 6 oz. tomato paste. 1-2 T each of chili powder and cumin, 1 t garlic powder. Simmered for 20 -30 minutes. Topped with crema,avocado and black olives with some lime slices. Not fancy but very tasty! This should burn the bacteria from my throat 😂.   The canned chicken was a very nice grade from GFS that had some nice fat and collagen with it.

Oh BTW  my wife's CHILI CON CARNE with KIDNEY BEANS and her special  ORANGE ( not really yellow) BUTTERNUT SQUASH was really good but that's not a big surprise being that she's a true scratch cook but it did come out delicious.

The butternut squash did give it a nice sweet mild taste that went along well with her Joe regular CHILI con Carne and Kidney bean chili.  It wasn't really a hot chili or fireball chili taste at all.  We don't really have a recipe for it YET she just threw it together kind of like how my grandmother cooked.......the best cook I've ever known.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SO NOW THAT IS OVER WHAT IS EVERYONE HAVING FOR THANKSGIVING DAY ?  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Traditional Thanksgiving Day fixins ?  Turkey plus or maybe something else ?

Oven cooked turkey or deep fried gobbler ?   Ham, steak, your special day meal ?  All grilled food ?  Pasta ?  Pizza ?  Eating out ?

Whatever it is take a few minutes in this crazy 2020 to give thanks for what really matters in this world.

    ~. Happy Thanksgiving to you all and have a great weekend. ~

And GO BROWNS !      (mmmmmmmm, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday football leftovers :D)

Fried Turkey, spiced with my secret recipe dry rub....same as the last 22 years! After the 1st one, my Bride said, "I'll never roast another turkey", & she hasn't! We'll also have mashed 'taters, stuffing & gravy. She's making pumpkin pie & I'm making peanut butter fudge tonight.

We are doing the traditional Thanksgiving Day turkey, stuffing, real mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, my wife's green beans, a sweet potato pie dish, etc, etc.

I did get to sample my wife's stuffing mix before she put the whole thing into the oven OMG delicious !  We had her homegrown herbs some still growing in pots inside the house they are so much to dishes but none more than turkey 🦃 dinner.  They just go together with everything. Mmmmmm.

We are loaded with fresh herbs since my wife retired in 2017 especially since our neighbors moved to Columbus in 2018 to be close to their kids.  They'd just come by and cut what they wanted and they liked to cook.  Then the 2020 stay away stuff we have bags and bags of 14 varieties of them.  She will probably bag them and give them to other neighbors.

After she gets done talking with her sister in Chicago we will eat around 3 pm.  I will actually miss having PIT/BAL at 8 this year.  :lol:

-BUT- there will will be turkey 🦃 TV dinners, sandwiches, sweet potato and pumpkin pie 🥧 dishes for Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday night football games !

Food & football, oh yeah !      Bon appetit to you all.   ;)

Halftime of game 1 on now, time for snack 2.  It's a good thing that my doctor wants me to put on a little more weight...... nice time to dig in !
