I have been doing a lot of batch cooking this week, filling up the freezer with home made dishes to make on Lazy-I-Don't-Feel-Like-Cooking , or I'm-a-Slacker-and-forgot-to-defrost-anything kinda nights.
Something just dawned on me.....
Someday I won't have 5 kids living here...
Someday I won't have 5 ravenous men to feed....
Someday it will just be the Man-of-My-Dreams and I.
(if he's lucky and I don't bump him off for annoying me)
What am I gonna do then?
I don't know how to cook "normal" sized meals!
I cannot remember the last time I cooked anything that wasn't doubled or tripled to feed my crew!
I honestly don't think I even own a small sized pot or pan!
Not one stinkin frying pan under 12 inched across! (and that is my smaller one!)
All I have are the super-duper Humongous sized cooking vessels.
My Crock-Pot is the size of most people's bathtubs.
My soup stock pot is what most people use to fry whole turkeys in!
My casserole dish is a 16 inch wide cast iron dutch oven! (I wash it in the bathtub!!)
A 13x9 lasagna? HA! I use a roasting pan that can hold a 22lb turkey!
My Pitcher of Sweet Tea is 5 gallons with a nozzle, cause there is no way to lift the sucker when it's full!
I have never made an omelet that required less than 18 eggs!
My "Normal" meatloaf starts with 8lbs of ground beef!
When I make grilled cheese for the family I use two whole loaves of Texas size sandwich bread!
I cook my spaghetti noodles in a pot that covers TWO burners on my stove!
Mashed potatoes are made with no less than 10lbs of taters!
When I cook burgers I fill the whole bottom of my smoker (the smaller one made from a 55 gal drum) w/ charcoal to fit em all over the fire.
Our usual smoker is made out of an old 150 gal propane tank!!!
what am I gonna do?
The Best Broccoli Salad In The World EVER!
