I wonder what substituting beef jerky for ham in Eric's recipe would taste like.

Here's what I'm having today...............green tea and seltzer water. It's my day to fast, because I can and yesterday was my cheat day.

I grill a lot, partly because I enjoy it and partly because there is no mess to clean up. It's just my wife and I also. I do everything from pizza to meatloaf on the grill.
Last night I bought a nice tuna steak $4 and a fresh chicken breast $2. Cooked the chicken then brought the grill up to 600 deg. and seared the tuna about 1 min. per side. Steamed some fresh veggies from a friends garden $0, and angel hair pasta. Great meal that would coast you $40 at a nice restaurant and IMO better.

I've grilled a few pizzas
I was impressed.
I also did flautas a few times in the grill

One of my favorite crock pot recipes is about as simple as it gets. Put a pack of Italian sausage in the bottom, add two cans of great northern beans and two cans of sliced potatoes. Add beef broth until there is about an inch of broth covering everything. Turn it on low and let cook all day, then about 30 minutes before eating turn it on high for 15 minutes, then turn it off and let it rest for 15 minutes.

Serve with fresh french or Italian bread and a salad.

I always hold off on adding seasoning to anything (like the Italian sausage and beef broth) that is already spiced, and only put salt on the table for everyone to season to taste.

Pre-cooked beans is good bachelor food because they store well in the freezer. We always have some variation of chili in the freezer. We bought a stack of those large plastic soup containers from Amazon. One of those containers will feed the family. Chili is good with bread, over rice and even over spaghetti.

Just make sure you rinse, and rinse, and rinse the beans well before cooking. Nothing worse than taking a bite and tasting sand or gritty stuff.

I agree with not adding additional salt. Canned tomatoes have a ton of sodium. A lot of Italian sausages (and sausages in general) also have very high salt content. Better to enhance the final taste with grated cheeses.

I second the crockpot. There's a lot of simple recipes you can make with it. One of my favorites is simply some chicken breasts and salsa. Toss 3 frozen chicken breasts and a jar of whatever salsa you like and cook on low for at least 4 hours. You can use it on chips, tortillas w/ whatever fixings you want.

Tonight I'm doing spaghetti, making sauce myself with venison sausage in it.

My most versatile tip

Marinated chicken breasts on the grill.

They can be used multiple ways:
  • Eat them straight up
  • Slice and put on top of a salad
  • Slice (thick or thin) and put on top of asian noodles (or what ever type of noodles/pasta turn your crank)
  • Put between bread/bun for a sandwich
  • Sliced and used in tacos or pita bread
  • Put with steamed vegetables and add teriyaki sauce

Summer vegetables and pasta, super easy. Cut up any combination of the following into small pieces: asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, red bell pepper, summer squash of your choice, scallions, whatever else floats your boat. Mince fresh basil leaves and some fresh parsley, more of the former.

Sautee' a chopped onion in olive oil, when it's clear add fresh minced garlic and turn off the heat so the garlic doesn't get bitter and grind in some fresh black pepper and red pepper flakes.

Cook pasta of your choice, al dente. I prefer linguini.

When the pasta is done, drain it and add it to the pan with the onions and garlic, toss in all the stuff in the first paragraph and heat it up a bit. The veggies will be pretty much raw but warm, don't cook it all to hell.

Serve with freshly grated parmesan and diced up grape tomatoes on top. It's easy, tasty and nutritious.

Take thick pork chops, cut pocket in them
Season with salt, pepper, ground thyme
Sear in skillet

Dice green apple, bell pepper, onion, garlic, bacon
Cook bacon, sauté veggies in same pan with bacon
Tighten this up with a little bread crumbs
Stuff in chops, finish in oven

When cooked, remove and let rest
In the pan you cooked in, add white wine, cream,saffron
Reduce, put chops in sauce

I like grilled squash or green beans as a side

P.s. down here, dinner is lunch, the evening meal is supper

Sounds delicious! I'll call it supper next time, lol. Fortunately GTers are pretty smart and even the Southern ones seem to have been able to figure out what I meant.

Deep dish. Sunday night so I kind of cleared out the 'fridge and covered it with cheese and homemade sauce. Sort of a Sunday tradition.

I know, I was agreeing with you. Should have addressed Dave separately, sorry.

I don't know if you have ever heard of it, being Behind the Tofu Curtain, but Frito Pie is a standard hit in West Texas.

Take a large bowl and fill the bottom with about 3/4 inches of standard Fritos. Sprinkle liberally with Tabasco Green sauce. Pour a heated can of Wolf Brand Chili on the Fritos. Cover with grated yellow cheese. Enjoy. Takes about 5 minutes and is cheap.

Tofu products can actually be pretty good!

Yesterday, for lunch I went to a Chinese (Shanghi) restaurant and ordered squid with pickled cabbage over rice. Along with that that I also ordered a side of "mock duck." That's sautéed chinese mushroom wrapped in tofu skin.

Other than in miso soup, I've never been a big fan of it. I don't have a weight problem or other health issue that would make me consider using it as a replacement for meat, I just order the meat. To each his own.

I would certainly eat that. Has all your basic food groups!
