2 pounds ground beef
2 (16 ounce) packages kielbasa sausage, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 (14.5 ounce) cans peeled and diced tomatoes, drained
4 medium baking potatoes, peeled and diced
2 (15 ounce) cans pinto beans, with liquid
2 (15.2 ounce) cans whole kernel corn, with liquid
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, with liquid
1 (10 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
4 cups water
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the sausage, garlic and onion; cook and stir until the meat is no longer pink.
Drain off grease, and transfer the contents of the skillet to a large pot.
Pour the tomatoes into the pot with the meat, and stir in the potatoes,
pinto beans, corn, diced tomatoes with chilies, mixed vegetables and water.
Season with cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
Cover, and simmer over medium-low heat for at least 1 hour.
Stir occasionally. The longer this stew cooks, the better it gets.
Sixteen years after it first opened, Rivoli remains one of the essential purveyors of that homegrown hybrid known as California cuisine. Chef/owner Wendy Brucker has spent the past decade and a half concocting inventive variations on Cal-Med cooking, in which fresh and seasonal ingredients associated with the Mediterranean Basin olives, basil, pine nuts, anchovies, lamb, fennel, mint, garlic are combined in exciting new ways that stimulate the appetite while letting each individual flavor shine. At her trim, tranquil Berkeley showplace (just a mile or so from the movement's cradle, Chez Panisse), Brucker presents a menu that changes every three weeks to reflect the season's bounty and to keep the kitchen from slipping into the routine or expected. And although some of the kitchen's more complex taste-texture combinations are less focused than they could be, the place is still a destination for any dues-paid Bay Area food-lover.
But for us Texans...we need beef!

love the Zappa thing.
I was a teen, operating a record shop for a guy who got loaded most days and left me in charge.
The Warner/Reprise/Atlantic rep came in with promos of all new releases, offering them @ $1 each.
I picked up a new white Bizarre label copy with a book, glossy photos + a promo bio piece, in a pink glossy folder with a heart in the center containing a smiling photo of Frank. Still have the lp set and photos--lost the folder.
the meat is here
Anyone else see this guy back then?
Is he still around?
Unbelievable pull on Sleepy Labeef, spider. Used to see him in the one country bar in Boston back in the 70s when I lived there. Think he lived in New England at the time, which seemed odd. I saw his name recently and know that he is still playing. Might be at jazzfest this year.
Making pasta and red sauce tonight so I need to get in the mood. Give this one a minute before bailing on it:
Prima was cool.
good music is so timeless..almost makes time stand still.
Meat Loaf stole Black Betty from a local guy Bill Bartlett and his band Ram Jam(a terrible studio-only creation). Bill B was the driving force of the 60s band the Lemon Pipers, who sounded nothing like their bizarre records.
Spank hijacking my ramblings?
Please don't jump into my football picks postings!!
LOL Spider...well, hijack may be a little harsh...I suppose I should include some kind of public service interruption announcement...and what makes you think I would WANT to get on your football picks?...LOL...

This Goodman fella sounds a lot like Rodney Carrington whom I've enjoyed a long time on the Bob and Tom Show...it's becoming painfully obvious to me I missed many a redneck/hillbilly/country/rockabilly/ acts in my 54 years...you guys are killin' me!...lol...in a good way of course...
