Depends...are you a vegetarian?  If so, lentil soup, with sides of a loaf of whole wheat sourdough bread, cheese, and a tossed salad (in better times). If not,

perhaps ham and navy bean soup. Salads are a treat these days, though, so it might be bread and soup.

I do love cooking, but it has been more than ten years since I had use of The Kitchen; re, it's Cap'n John's Domain.

2 staple meals for me when not wanting to fuss for long. Lasagna - 2 pounds of ground beef, fried with some italian spices, add a jar of Prego or other sauce when cooked, 6 lasagna noodles boiled until tender. Put a layer off noodles in a 9x12 pan, cover with half the meat and sauce. Cover that with cheddar and parmesan cheese. Add another layer of noodles, cover with remaining meat and lots of cheaddar and mozzarella. Sometimes do it with ceasar salad and/or garlic/cheese bread.

 

The other is $h!t on a shingle or hash. 2 pounds of ground beef fried with a little salt and pepper. Make a gravy with some flour and milk. Mashed potatoes or toast (hence the shingle) with the meat and gravy on top.

Hamburgers, with bacon. No side dish needed, because if I’m going to the trouble of making hamburgers, it’s gonna full you up all by itself!

It's a cold day, and I want something hot. Ramen noodles with dumplings cooked in the same broth. 15 minute meal.

Beef and leftovers stew.  No recipe; it's never the same twice. 

 

Basically, take a can of Dinty Moore beef stew and add whatever you have in the fridge that makes sense. I add mushrooms, onions, more carrots and potatoes, and sometimes peppers and celery. 

I have added chicken, pork, bear, and venison,  all depending on what I have.

 

Mix everything together,  then add spices.

 

Like I said it's never the same twice, but it's always good.

What is your favorite part of the hobby process? (planning, assembly, painting, gaming, competition, etc?) 

 

Finishing projects.

actually painting comes a close second, especially if I am in the flow - 30-45 min can vanish in the blink of an eye 

 

 

Its my turn to cook I'm serving...  my regular Sunday breakfast. 

Scones and scrambled eggs

with a little bacon left from yesterdays breakfast crumbled in the eggs. 

 

Lemon Curd and  Strawberry jam as options

Yesterday, lasagna. Today for lunch, grilled cheese (made in a pan with plenty of butter). Tomorrow, coq au vin. If the weather holds Monday, we may break out the grill for burgers.

 

If food delivery arrives as anticipated, Tuesday will be Portuguese costeletas de porco a Alentejana.

I just made some curry chicken salad and deviled eggs for lunch. 

 

Earlier today I was reminded that I have not made shakshuka since I moved. I need to remedy this.

It's always my turn to cook. This is for the best, unless you like burnt cereal.

 

My general outline for meal planning runs like this:

What is the fiancee in the mood for? Rare that she has a preference, but when she is in the mood for something, I try to make that happen, pending the next point:

 

What fresh protein is available? We don't have very good options for food shopping, our best supermarket is solidly low-mid tier. So this is usually what decides the meal, I do a circuit of the fish/meat counters then the bunkers; whatever looks best is what I build the menu around on the fly. I've been doing this for decades and it's a good habit for the current limitations on food availability.

 

Then there are some seasonal considerations, more likely to do casserole type stuff in the winter, summer is almost always based on grilled proteins.

So if the question is specific to today, grilled pork loins with sides of corn and quinoa.
