This Weeks Eats 10.19.14

It has occurred to me that I haven't reported back on a few recipes we've tried in recent weeks.  Most of them were pretty good, but need a few tweaks if we add them to the menu again.  Last week the Chile Relleno Casserole was good and had great flavor, but was a little too mushy.  If we make it again, I'd add some cooked rice or shredded potato to give it more bite.  A few weeks ago we tried Grilled Chicken with Garlicky Green Sauce and Slow Cooker Jalapeno Popper Taquitos.  Both good, I'd recommend!  Maybe go easy on the garlic in the green sauce, as it goes a loooooong way.  And a while ago we tried One Pot Chili Mac which was really easy and made a TON (we're having the leftovers this week).  However flavor was lacking.  I'd add double the seasonings, a diced jalapeno along with the garlic and onion, and some cheese with a little more tang, like gruyere.  

I have no fun photos to share this week, so please enjoy one of my favorite stand up bits from Lewis Black on the most vile candy o' the season: CANDY CORN.

The embedded video is the short version, you can listen to the long (and hilarious) version here.
