    Spicy Corn Chowder

    I felt that last night I needed something new to eat besides pureed soup.  I have to say that I am not quite ready for it yet but this soup turned out great.  It’s been raining a lot here in Colorado and the soup just hit the right spot in this weather. These are all of the ingredients I will be using for this ninjatasitc soup. You will want to start off by cooking some..


  • Rosemary White Bean Soup

    Rosemary White Bean Soup

    This dental procedure has really set me back on what I can eat.  I’ve already devoured the broccoli cheese soup from a few days ago.  Yesterday, I decided to make a bean soup and here are the results. First, you need to soak your beans for at least 6 hours.  Preferably overnight as it makes the cooking process go faster. Chop up 3 to 4 medium sized yellow onions.  This recipes uses a lot for..


  • Ninja Broccoli Cheese Soup

    Ninja Broccoli Cheese Soup

      Tomorrow I embark on a journey to the dreadful dentist.  This will be the first time I’ve ever been put under anesthesia for any kind of procedure.  Needless to say, this ninja isn’t exactly comfortable about all of this.  I won’t be able to eat solid food for at least a few days.  This dilemma forces me to look back on my ninja training and ask, “What would a ninja do?”  A ninja would..

    Frugality with your Vegetable Scraps

    Everyone loves to save money.  If you don’t, then you are not a part of my ninja clan.  One way you can save money in the kitchen is to save all of your vegetable scraps.  This will also lead to some good eats (Alton Brown oh yeah!).  I make soup quite often as it is an easy meal and it leaves you with a simple feel good kind of feeling.  A lot of soup recipes..

    Weekly Menu 9/8 – 9/14

    I am having dental surgery tomorrow so the menu for this week is going to feature items that I think I will be able to eat easily and also make Mrs. Ninja and mini ninja happy.  Hopefully I will be able to take some pictures and make a few posts while I am recovering and taking some awesome medications to assist in my speedy ninja recovery. Sunday Hamburgers and Brats Ranch Beans and Fried Potatoes..


  • BBQ Chicken Leg Quarters

    BBQ Chicken Leg Quarters

    There is something about manning a grill that brings out the most primal needs within a ninja.  Fire, smoke, and the smell of charcoal makes one just realize, yes I am a man and more importantly I am a ninja.  I decided to grill some chicken leg quarters and they turned out to be divine.  I’m always using my grill on the weekends and this weekend I decided to season my chicken with Big Ron’s..


  • Steak Night

    Steak Night

    I love steak.  I could eat it a few nights a week but unfortunately, I’m not a baller so I can’t afford it as often as I would like.  I have found a way to make a cheap steak for those of you that want to eat cheap like a ninja.  When you go to your grocery store, look for Chuck Steak and not the steak cut from chuck roast.  When I purchase it here,..


  • Poor Man’s Awesome Spaghetti Sauce

    Poor Man’s Awesome Spaghetti Sauce

    I love to make spaghetti sauce or as some call it, gravy.  When you read this, you may huff and puff when you see how I made this.  I mentioned yesterday that I am on a goal to eat cheap this week and tonight is no exception.  The commissary had some cheap sauce on sale so I decided to give it a whirl.  Here we go, off into the wild spaghetti yonder……. As you can..


  • Chicken Tacos

    Chicken Tacos

    I think that one of my favorite things to eat are quite simply, tacos.  I love a street style taco and will almost always try a new taco truck or stand that I drive by.  My favorite has to be lengua tacos.  Most Americans don’t like this and my family fits into that group.  So tonight as a part of my goal to eat cheap this week, I made chicken tacos out of the leftover..


  • Mexican Rotisserie Chicken

    Mexican Rotisserie Chicken

    Who doesn’t love rotisserie chicken?  I could eat this every single week.  It’s cheap and I can almost always make a second meal out of this the next day.  Just what, that’s just what I did to this chicken but more on that later.   This is the chicken after I rubbed it down and tied it up and place it in my magical Ronco rotisserie.  I just love to set it and forget it. ..
