How to cook like a Mad Scientist: Chili

Taking a break from Meety Monday this week! Instead, enjoy a post from Jason about how to make chili..

I cook most of the meals around here. Usually it's something simple that I know by heart, but sometimes as desire or necessity dictates I make something up as I go.

P.S. leftover squash-cheese mix. Spread it on EVERYTHING!

Chai Hummus

Today's hummus is a sweet one. Which means that even though I start with the basics, it's somewhat more modified than usual.

The Most Gourmet Thing Ever

That right there is Dino-buddies Parmigiana on a  bed of spinach fettuccine. It is the most amazing thing I have ever made. Dinosaurs make everything better.

As you can see, a dinosaur shaped piece of chicken is best when encrusted with Parmesan cheese.
