Having lived as a bachelor more than one time in my life, and gone out “ranger camping” with all the ROTC guys when I was in college, I became a pro at low effort bachelor cooking.

By the way, Ranger camping quite often involved the the the “Liberation” of things like firewood. Fall in Utah was the perfect time and place.

When my wife is gone she will often come home and be amazed that I have washed all the dishes and put them away, but the truth is they never left their little spots.

Expedient suburban Ranger cooking is the most fun of all.

Also there is takeout food… I can ride to six restaurants on my bicycle in 10 minutes, loafing. ;)

It’s hard to go wrong with bacon.

I made a pasta carbonara today with bacon and marinated pork loin and some Italian chicken sausage. I didn’t get any pictures of that, but I did take pictures of my corn muffins cooking.

I’m not Italian enough to make polenta.

When I was in college I worked in a cake factory. I was on the Night Shift and we had to fix all the broken equipment so it would run the next day.

One night I got to sit inside of a big coconut shredder for four hours, sewing the belt back together with stainless steel wire and a big needle and vice grips.

I ate a lot of coconut while doing that job. I’m still crazy for the stuff. My coveralls were stiff from all the sugar when I got off LOL

Pepperidge Farm was the cake factory, and they also made those little goldfish crackers that are covered with powdered cheese. I remember they used to bring in big boxes of grated Parmesan and 55 gallon cardboard drums full of processed cheese.

I didn’t have to work on that side of the plant. I was on the side where they made all the cake, icing, & jelly/fruit desserts.

Right after high school I had some downtime before I was scheduled to ship out for basic and wanted to earn some serious cash so I took a 3rd shift job on the clean up crew for On-Cor foods. At the time (1992) making $25 an hour in our little farming community was unheard of unless you worked at GM in the union. It was all in one from meat processing to prepackaged meals. I cleaned all the "ovens" and hoods/extractors. Had to get inside the caverns filled with all sorts of processing waste and use acid and 190deg water to strip them. Then they all got scotch Brite on every surface and washed again. Oh the smells.........🤢🤮. Pretty sure that job is part of the reason I don't have much sense of smell left these days



Well.........we've derailed this tasty thread 😂

My sister was quality assurance at that place, she was the one that would inspect if something was not good. She was off bacon for years

Lemme get things back in track with this weekend's pizza. Nothing exists in the world like Cornwall pizza. I'm usually Team North End, but lately I've been calling Riverside

Just made and ate a western omelette. My wife suggested it and I was hungry, so I did it. Only thing different this time was I added eggnog to the scrambled eggs with just a bit of milk. Tons of onions, bell peppers, jalapeño peppers, and chopped up bacon and diced up tomatoes. Topped off with shredded sharp cheddar and Italian cheese. Probable one of the best tasting, fluffiest omelets I’ve ever made or eaten. Got to remember the eggnog trick for future !

Thought this might drive some engagement. I have the feeling we have quite a few folks that enjoy a good meal and I'm sure quite a few like myself that really enjoy cooking and time in the kitchen

I'm sure our resident grill master Jake Sensi will be along at some point

Soooo...............what are you cooking? Breakfast, lunch, dinner, special occasion.........


🥘🥗🥞🥐🥙🥓🥑
My wife made me Shepard pie yesterday and I ate the rest this morning for bfast. It’s a traditional meal in my wife’s family. Her folks came overseas from England in the 60’s, on The Queen Mary. I didn’t know about Shepherds pie until I met them. O boy it’s good.

I took my wife to tour the queen Mary back when the spruce goose was still down there. It must’ve been a real terrific experience to travel on that ship. Just reading the menu was amazing.

My German and Irish ancestors all came here in between The Civil War, and World War I. I never thought about how they actually got here, but they surely traveled on ships much more primitive than the Queen Mary.
