dug out my "great big ole" camp fire skillet. it takes 2 elements on the stove.

3 pounds of ground chuck into burger patties and 2 pounds of platter bacon all in the same skillet. cook it all with a couple of dashes of st. elmo's seasoning. add some extra sharp cheddar right before you pull it all out.

I made PawPaw pancakes this morning. I found a pumpkin pancake mix digging through the cupboard. It said just add pumpkin. Well, I have a lot of frozen PawPaw pulp from my trees last year, so I decided to switch in the PawPaw. It was quite good. I didn't even use any maple syrup.
I may just make that again next weekend.

going to try some beef and noodles. nothing fancy.

2 1/2 pound roast - went for a fatty one for broth
cut it up and brown in skillet with a hint of flour.
put in crock pot and cook on high for a couple of hours
boil noodles to almost done in some beef broth
add to crock and season to taste
let cook for another hour.

you can add yucky vegetables or mushrooms or just about anything. i was told to serve over a bed of rice or mixed vegetables to add variety. i was thinking some homemade biscuits. :)

i tried some homemade turkey potpie over thanksgiving. it was horrible. no idea what i did wrong, but it was REALLY WRONG. even the local scavengers didn't eat it. how bad does something have to be for a possum not eat it?

anyways, i got something really good now.

1 gallon of milk - half empty
add 10 big scoops of nesquik
shake for a few minutes and drink through a long straw.

My friends are in the process of moving, so dumped food on me as they didn't plan their move well at all. The flank steak I actually used in a recipe (only making slight changes like adding cumin) for pepper steak stir fry with a sauce. That turned out okay first day and helped use a lot of peppers, though I should have used more.

To use up some of my massive quantity of tahini I've been sitting on, I decided to make up a sesame noodle batch to eat with the leftovers of the pepper steak stir fry. One lesson learned is that freeze dried shallots should not be dropped in a hot pan before frying other things. Not a new lesson, but trying to use tahini in fried dishes has not worked well - I should do some curry thing, though I'll never get rid of this massive jar of tahini.

The leftover steak, though, was better than the first day, tenderized a bit more. Overall, could have been worse. I'll try to take the leftover noodles and make them less dry. Then, the rest of the linguine can go with the leftover Italian sauce I need to finish.

You can Bing the recipe for the pepper steak by looking for flank steak recipes that return pepper steak with 4.9 stars. Do not look for my take fresh linguine and try to fry with burning shallots recipe.

Wild Rice Caserole

1 pkg. long grain wild rice (I used the instant kind)

1/2 cup Onion (diced)
1/2 cup Green Pepper (diced)
1/2 stick Butter (Saute the onions and peppers in the butter while the rice is cooking)

1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 can Water Chesnuts (drained and diced)
1 can Mushrooms (diced)

Combine the rice, onions, peppers, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, water chesnuts, and the mushrooms mixing well. Bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees.

Vegetarians can substitute Cream of Celery Soup for the Cream of Chicken Soup

I have made this in the crockpot also by starting it before I went to sleep.

@Lori, I will get my wife on here. we have had the instant pot for about a year now and the cooking flavors went up exponentially.

Now for my fun item...I have a Traeger smoker...and have been doing a set of experiments to make smoked chicken wings...its turning out awesome.

I started with this
www.dontsweattherecipe.com/smoked-chicken-wings-recipe/

made a few changes...Kat cannot handle the spicy...so after our first batch,
removed the cayenne, removed the black pepper, removed the smoked paprika, the chili powder

the new recipe is
3 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of fajita seasoning (some zest to replace the chili powder)
2 Tablespoons of paprika
1 tablespoon of smokehouse maple
2 teaspoons of cumin
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of coarse kosher salt
1 teaspoon of PINK pepper (it creates a nice aroma too)

I use 12 drums, 12 tips
I used pecan wood for smoke
I cooked slow and low (185 for 90 minutes)
I then increased heat to 225 for 30 minutes

then for the really important part
I kicked up the heat to full power...waited for the heat to get to 350+ and counted 5 minutes...then I opened and turned them all over...and another 5 minutes.
...take them out

Once done, then let them rest for 20 min to start to get really crispy...the moistness is in there...

the recipe online is fantastic...if you can handle the heat. but we save the heat for our sauces so we can better control it.
...

well, I tried something new. my wife suggested I try a hot do with the manwich. I told her we were out. then she pulled 2 packs out of the deepfreeze. dummy me. anyways, I tried manwich on some cooked hotdogs. pretty tasty. I might try some shredded cheddar with it later on.
