    Last night I had soup and salad, tonight I'll eat the rest. Apparently Sams sells Panera Bread brand Broccoli Cheese Soup, and I just add a salad and I'm set. Salad has everything almost-cheddar, raw broccoli, raw carrots, onion, grape tomato, s&p, little ranch. Could use some fresh bacon bits though.

    Hey, I just made FF's two or three nights ago :)
    Had them with the last of the meatloaf and everything smothered in gravy.

    Tonight I'm sweet talking some pork chops into thawing faster.
    I'm not sure how they'll be cooked yet, but some home fries are in there somewhere.

    For meat I try to put it in the fridge 24 hours earlier (only burgers, steaks or chops) to thaw. I will put it under med water in the ziplock, but dont prefer it unless I dont have a choice.

    Heck man. I'm still using the black painted, grooved piece of aluminum (As seen on TV!) platter I was given by my mother 30 years ago!
    Works great. Just takes a couple hours.
    I never know what I'm eating 24 hours ahead. That's a long time. I could have died by then.

    I try to plan ahead, when I forget its usually not nearly as good. When I finish supper I throw something in the refrigerator. I have ruined a couple pieces of meat by changing plans and thats just wrong. All wrong. :(

    Nice salad. Throw some garlic flavored croutons on there and I'd be in heaven.

    I went with fried. In lard :)

    I took my first shot at venison steaks made with my dads cast iron skillet. A little olive oil at first, then butter with Montreal Steak Seasoning. It was on point for the moistest, tastiest pan fried venison steak I have ever had. Doing this again!

    First time using lard and I've had a block of it in the fridge for a few months.
    I was pretty happy with the results.

    I had most of a Little Caesar's Supreme pizza for lunch yesterday, so supper was a couple slices of Swiss cheese.

    IMG_5593.JPG IMG_5592.JPG IMG_5591.JPG Suppose to get cold here. So tonight I made wifey and I an "eintopf". So we'd have leftovers! Kinda like a shepherd's pie kinda deal

    I used a 1/2 lb of ground elk, 2 sausage links, 2 slices of elk backstrap diced, leeks, minced garlic, paprika, a little Tony Chachere, black pepper, about 1/2 cup of leftover peas, sliced mushrooms all topped off with mash potatoes and lots of grated cheddar!!!

    It was very good!!

    Edit! Oh! And 3 big dollops( tablespoons) of hog lard to fry up in first.

    IMG_4541.JPG

    Add ribeye, well seasoned with freshly cracked black pepper and sea salt;
    IMG_4542.JPG

    Sear it HARD and flip it over, baste continuously until cooked to just shy of what you like;
    IMG_4545.JPG IMG_4546.JPG IMG_4549.JPG

    Low side of mid rare for me please, she thought I said peas..
    IMG_4552.JPG

    My lovely bride felt like pasta and I'm absolutely sick of it, being a pasta making fool of a chef.
    So she gets meatballs, gnocchi and peas with a healthy grating of real Parmesan Reggiano.

    Bon appetit.

    VERY nice!
    I'm trying to get more into cooking steak in a pan, just so I can play with some sauces. I've always been a grill guy.

    Start with pork, the light meat will give you a better gauge of where your temp is. Then remove the protein to rest, pour off the fat, return the pan to the heat. Once the residual fat starts to lightly smoke add 1/4 cup of stock or broth, scraping the bits with a wooden spatula or spoon. Add a large spoon full of butter and a spoon full of mustard, whole grain is best. Reduce until thick and season to taste with black pepper and salt.

    Forgive me, no pics. Homemade Chicken Parm (homemade by Fieldcraftltc), homemade sauce from scratch (yep, I crushed the tomatoes, etc.), spaghetti zucchini squash.

    Low carb, high protein, and lots of flavors!!!

    BTW, I do rent myself out for cooking gigs!!!!

    Last night's dinner.
    I had some B sprouts to use up and a left over twice baked potato from the other night. And what goes better with both than a nice rib-eye?

    Made a couple of frozen burritos, made some homeade guac, added some cheese and salsa.
    Then I got some baby greens and made a salad with every vegetable I could get my hands on, added guac and cheese.

    BOOM! dinner.

    I had to do something quick, so I made some bacon. :) So in the bacon grease made asparagus. Made instant mashed potatoes and added the bacon. Themn I pulled some baked brussel sprouts out of the oven.

    20180129_180525.jpg

    So basically bacon and vegetables. ;)

    What a coincidence. I had bacon and B sprouts tonight, too :) Along with some other clean out the fridge stuff.
    I got some bacon, Hillshire Farms smoked Kielbasa and onions going in a pot (with a spoonful of lard to help them get started). Cut up the sprouts and threw them in along with a carrot.
    upload_2018-1-29_20-39-45.jpeg

    After those looked like they had a nice saute going I threw in half a stick of butter, turned down the heat and put a lid on it to cook down.
    upload_2018-1-29_20-41-25.jpeg

    Egg noodles done, they went in, too.
    upload_2018-1-29_20-42-44.jpeg

    And it came out pretty decent.

    I honestly love food posts...I work a busy day a lot of the time, but its just a hobby that helps me relax and cook some damn good food for the family! Don't think I would like it as much if it was my full time job...however I cant complain!! Thanks to all that share, I get many ideas from threads like this!
    Here is yesterdays meal...a shrimp/lobster Alfredo with mushrooms, onions, and plenty of garlic...served with some fresh bread...and my family will tell you Im not a big pasta guy, but every once in awhile...presentation is everything! fullsizeoutput_488.jpeg

    I had to get rid of the hamburger, so thats about 1/2 lb+ of HBsteak. Lol too much gravy but I'm full.

    No such thing as too much gravy :)

    Not a twice baked, it's a smashed redskin. The Pioneer Woman calls them crash hot potatoes. Boil it, smash it, drizzle a little olive oil on it and season it, bake it until the edges are crispy.

    Last night I saved a little mushrooms and onion and hamburger and made a patti.

    Tonight I stuck the burger on the grill and started the mushroom and onions in a pan.
    I put it together with some spring greens and on top of the mush&onions I added some jalapeno cheese dip and a little mayo to the bun.
    Some fries, and then some steamed broccoli to make it healthy and all...ya know.
    Side of peach tea and I'm set.

    Man, you eat early, @Wasp
    Or I guess I eat late.
    Looks good. I like the sounds of the jalapeno dip on the patty.

    I just thawed out some walleye pieces someone gave me. Not really fillets...
    Got 'em soaking in milk right now.
    I'll make some mac and cheese to go with.
