Snowy Day Means Casserole Day..



Wife working late three days this week, so I try to have a meal ready to go when she gets home( as eating late doesn't agree with either of us!) I looked in the pantry and saw we had an inordinate amount of boxed macaroni-n-cheese on hand. I sometimes just use the pasta in these boxes, saving the powdered cheese sauce for other uses. I also had a big, fully cooked ham that has been waiting to be cut into, so I made a ham, mac and cheese casserole. Other items thrown in were sliced mushrooms and diced tomatoes. With the addition of a few spices, and hot sauce, it made for a warming supper on a wet snowy day...
Deer jerky production to start today, as I will be cutting it into strips and marinating part of today, and overnight! Plan to mix some ground venison and ground beef together to make a pepperoni snack everyone seems to like..

Even though I hate to even read the word "rectum" while looking at food, that does look tasty.

Dr Zibbs said...

One question - What kind of cheese did you use?

doggybloggy said...

TavoLini said...

I have to admit, besides the 'processed meatballs' I ate Sunday night, I bought Stoufer's Mac & Cheese last week and did not remember it tasting as good as it did. Maybe I need to stop cooking so many damn up scale foods, and come over to your house once in a while!

Chef- I can cook and eat Quails' eyeballs with the best of them, but good food is good food- wherever you find it! I really don't like Rachael Ray, but I remember her saying once; "I'm a cook, not a chef!" I learned to make State class award winning beef brisket from a black man from Oklahoma-best cook I ever met- worst businessman I ever saw! Has lost 2-3 restaurants/catering companies, while making some of the best BB-Q in this half of the state...

buffalodick said...

Finn- OK, dear... What would you like? E-mail requests are usually honored

Akelamalu said...

Anette said...

I'll send my son over, He'd love some of that, it's one of his favourites! And if you don't mind, I'll come with him to keep you company.

buffalodick said...

Ake- I have the original recipe for "Stone soup!" I love to cook from nothing- or very little!
Anette- Kids, and moms always welcome here!

Mona said...

Jeff B said...

Doggybloggy's comment "easy mac the buff way" gave me a chuckle. Now I have to try and shake that mental image.

Good to know you made it back from the great outdoors safely. Happy Thanksgiving.

Odat said...

Peace and Happy Turkey Day to you and yours!!!

Yum City....love that mac & cheese!
I bet your wife knows how to cook very well; she's just playing dumb like me!! :D My husband has been a cookin fool of late. No complaints from me though, I love his cookin. He complains that I don't know how to cook either...
