Chuckwagon Turkey Stew

Chuckwagon Stew

There is a long history behind the Chuckwagon.  They were used by the cowboys working on the Texas cattle drives as early as 1867.  Each had their own cook, often called “Cookie” and was king of his chuckwagon.  The chuckwagon was the social center for the cowboys out on a drive.  He determined when, what to eat and sometimes, how much.

Not much different than the  home “Cookies”   However, I doubt turkey was very the main meat in the stew, not when moving beef across the land.  There are some very interesting stories of the chuckwagon history.

Every ready baked potatoes.

My real intention of taking about this stew was the use of prebaked potatoes to have in the refrigerator to add to soups, stews, or for stir frying without the waiting for the potato to bake.  I bake four russet potatoes, wrapped in foil for 1 hour at 400 F.  They are cooled to room temperature in the foil, and stored until ready for addition to a recipe.  That was the beginning of the Chuckwagon Turkey Stew.

Italian Chili soup

Italian Chili Soup, Netta Belle’s Choice

 

Chili soup is an all time favorite and one popular for contest of “Who makes the best Chili”. Chili is a favorite at my house, however, having tried the Mediterranean herbs, Italian Chili Soup has become our favorite.  It seems once away from the hot pepper spices of chili powder it is hard to go back to the hot, spicy and spirited chili.  But we like chili!
