    Cheap for here, believe me.
    Oh I do, and my dad would approve........ back in the 70's (he is long dead) he would buy a years worth of streak if he found a great deal, and would use double gal freezer bags around two at a time and then he (Mom actually) would chuck them in the deep freezer we had in the basement.

    Steak cooked on his Weber was his favorite meal.

    Almost always NY Strip though.

    Gotta love a T bone, two steaks in one.
    Now I'd have been impressed if you set out to hunt down an auroch, got one, dressed and froze what you weren't feasting on with the folks. Especially since they are extinct.

    Just a note: When I come over, I like my filet mignon buttered and peppered, rare. Pan seared with garlic, finished in the oven at its highest temperature for 4 minutes.

    I don't recall where I got this recipe, but it was dinner tonight with sides of shrimp toast:

    1 pound white firm flesh fish fillet

    Marinade
    1 egg white
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons rice wine
    1 tablespoon cornstarch

    Soup
    2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
    1 tablespoon Szechuan hot bean sauce
    One 1" piece of ginger peeled and sliced
    4 cloves garlic sliced
    1 scallion cut into 1/2" pieces
    1 tablespoon Szechuan peppercorns
    1/4 cup Szechuan dried red chili peppers
    1 tablespoon rice wine
    2 teaspoons soy sauce
    2 cups fish or chicken stock
    2 celery stalks sliced
    1 cup napa cabbage cut up


    Cut fish into 2" pieces. Mix Fish Marinade ingredients and toss well with fish fillet. Set aside to marinade for 20 minutes.
    Heat oil in a large pot. Add hot bean sauce and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add ginger, garlic, half of scallions, Szechuan peppercorns, and dried chili peppers. Cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes, being careful not to burn the peppercorns or chili peppers. Add rice wine and soy sauce and stir another minute. Add stock and bring to a boil.
    Place celery and napa cabbage in a clay casserole. Lay marinated fish on top.
    Pour soup on top of fish. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes until fish is cooked through.
    Serve over steamed brown rice.

    Lots of Green tea. Lemon ices for desert.

    I guess I may have to dig out my own slow cooker and make something up...




    Was the cheese in the whole time? Did you make pasta first? Did you guesstimate a mixture of water/cheese/pasta and perhaps stir it a couple times while it was cooking? How'd it go?
    I threw everything into the pot: bits of butter, uncooked mac noodles, shredded cheese, milk, seasonings. Mix it all up so the pasta gets covered and cook on low for about 2-3 hours. Works.

    Cool. I'll have to aim for a lazy meal sometime.

    Well it isn't one of those dishes that you can just fix on a whim cause that dried salted cod takes around three days to rehydrate. And in my neck of the woods it often needs to be special ordered.

    Speaking of cod, I took some out of the freezer yesterday and it was still frozen so tonight it is each man for himself.

    Tomorrow I will prepare it. I am craving latkes with homemade applesauce unsweetened. So tomorrow's dinner will be cod breaded with panko, latkes, applesauce and a simple salad.

    Tried the crock pot curry ala Pos's post. Came out great. I was surprised that just curry powder and coconut milk was that easy to be so good. We use to make curry with the little jars of curry from Thai Kitchen, and I never really liked them much...I never would have thought I'd prefer just curry powder. Entire family loved it. In any case, it's got me wanting to refine it so it tastes more like my favorite Thai Curry place.

    I think I'm going to do it in a regular pot though from now on, because I have developed a taste for the veggies to be a little more crispy instead of crock-pot tender. Same with the chicken. But anyway, teh flood gate of curry experimentation is now open!
    Side note: I got regular and lite coconut milk because I am a killjoy. The difference is astounding. Coconut milk (regular) is so sinfully delicious and creamy, I recall it from years ago, but apparently I forgot just how serious that stuff is. I think I'll just have to forget about sat fat on Curry night, and eat a light breakfast and lunch :P
