    Nothin fancy. Had beef and beans for dinner just now. Ate 'em right out of the pan. Like most Mex dishes if they're spicy enough. Chili is my most favorite. It's gotta have tomatoes, onions, garlic, peppers, meat and lots of beans, else it's just soup.

    It's been ages since I made New England style clam chowder and I think I'm getting ready to do it.

    Fortunately, my supermarket sells FRESH chopped clams in the chilled seafood case so I don't have to bother with shucking, whew.

    Now to decide on whether to add celery. Salt pork or bacon? Just yellow onions or should I add some scallions, too? Add cream or just mash some of the potatoes to thicken? It seems any time I add cream to a recipe, I need more salt! The internet is rife with various recipes but I'd love some input from friends here.

    I'm sure @Ken Anderson, you have your favorite since you live in Maine and surely @Bobby Cole..... Who else, please?

    Dinner at our home is varied. It can be as simple as tea rice and pickled vegetables we call tsukemono or mashed potatoes and fish. Tonight we are having something very light. Rice, prepared tofu called iritofu, iriko or dried baby anchovies and pickled vegetables. I love pizza and french fries. Though it's frozen pizza made with french bread, that I doctor up with extra cheese, extra pepperoni topped off with a salad and french fries.

    I have a few things that I will frequently order in restaurants when I am not in the mood to make decisions. These are not necessarily my favorites but are, rather, things that restaurants don't generally mess up and, therefore, are fairly safe foods to order. I will frequently order a Reuben, except at some restaurants that make them with a sweet taste that I don't like so much. I will often order chicken fried steak, mostly because anyone who can teach a chicken to do that is worthy of my respect. Chicken fried steak is sometimes marketed as country fried steak at restaurants, and there is often a breakfast version as well as a dinner version. I order spaghetti with meat balls often at some restaurants but it's not really a safe order because some restaurants are so skimpy on the meatballs that I feel cheated, and others use really thin spaghetti that I don't care so much for. I used to use variations of a hamburger as a safe food but ever since I discovered Five Guys, I like to save my hamburger orders for Five Guys. Although I love steak, I rarely order it because, unlike most people, I like my steak cooked and, far too often, even when I order it well done, it's still bleeding all over the plate when I get it.

    My favourite is vegetarian chilli which I often cook and it lasts for several days which is good. There is restaurant chain in the UK that serves a really good 3 bean chilli, which I usually have when there.

    Our favorite dish is Pork Sinigang particularly the pig's tail. Sinigang means cooking the pork in the broth from tamarind, that's why it is sour. It is a delicacy in Metro Manila although there are variations in the province. Aside from the pork or pig's tail as the main ingredient, vegetables are added particularly okra or lady finger, kangkong or water hyacinth, radish, string beans and lastly... fern. Yes, that is the edible fern that is our favorite vegetable in pork sinigang. It goes well with steamed rice that is so good with the soup of the pork sinigang.
