    Camp Chow

    We didn't go overboard this weekend on food prep. The lousy weather took care of that. Thursday we did some buffalo turds, burgers & Nick's sausage. The turds were cooked in a toaster oven, while the meats were cooked on the Cobb grill. Still getting use to the Cobb grill. 8 brikquets isn't quite enough heat. The previous effort had us using too much heat.

    Here's some before & after pictures.

    It's been cold & rainy the last few days. Looking forward to better weather so we can do more outside living. We did have an afternoon visit from Mr. Misfit. Fishing & boxing were the topics of conversation. Good thing I'm fluent in both subjects.

    Anyone else that finds themselves over on the rec center give us a holler. Looking forward to sitting outside, watching the sun go down, conversing and enjoying good food & drink.

    It's looking like crappy weather most of this weekend.


    If it's warm I'll still fish Saturday morning but I think we should be able to find solace at the Ruddy Duck.

    what no MRE's
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    This week I was hankering for Cajun food. Often when we are out I'll order jambalaya or maybe gumbo if it's on the menu. Some places have then listed under the soup option of the menu.

    I cheated and bought the roux in a jar. It was easier and would save me some time. I had all the spices except the gumbo file. So now I have a small container of that. I bought sausage, chicken thighs, shrimp, bell pepper, okra, onion, celery and canned chopped tomatoes. I did it in the instantpot. Clean up was easy. I diced the veggies and sauteed them. Then cooked the chicken and sausage together. Added in the roux then added water and bouillon. Stirred that until it was smooth then added the other cooked ingredients. Let it simmer for 30 minutes then added the raw shrimp. The shrimp pretty much cooked from the heat of the liquid. Served with rice, I've been eating on that for 3 days now. Just 1 more serving left.

    I still have some roux left over in case I want to make it again. I'm pretty much gumboed out right now. But who knows maybe in a week or 2 I'll get cooking again. Next time I'll add more okra and keep everything else the same.

    Beef straoganoff

    Today I went fishing. Despite getting about a 1,000 bites, I didn't catch 1 fish. I downsized my hooks to no avail. And while I was staring out the water I got hungry. And for some reason stroganoff came to mind.. So when I left, I went shopping and got what I needed. Beef, scallion, mushrooms, beef broth, flour, sour cream, egg noodles and of course ice cream.

    Easy peasy. Cut the veggies, cut the beef, saute everything. Make a roux. Deglaze the pan. Add everything all together. Stir like crazy until it's nice an smooth. Boil some egg noodles. Add sour cream to the beef. Stir and enjoy.

    All cooked outside. Dishes are done. Jose Cuervo was my sous chef. Setting my sights on Tillamook vanilla ice cream for dessert.

    Did the sous-chef add any extras while the chef was distracted?

    Is that an electric skillet?
