Not one to waste much,when I drained the juice from the kidney beans garbanzo beans, canned wax beans, green beans and reserved it.
This from the four bean salad for tomorrow.
Then I cooked some shell pasta in it with the cut off ends of the peppers I used in the four bean salad.
Added was a pinch of my homemade red sauerkraut and some caraway seeds.
Topped with Parmesan cheese.
Made a nice soup.

I've always had cheap, quick; and easy meals when I was fishing a river, riding my ATV in the mountains or just camping out. I would usually choose three out of the following items as a meal, small can of pork and beans (cold), small can of Vienna sausage's, chunk of hard cheese, saltine crackers, candy bar for quick energy if needed, fresh or dried fruit and nuts, smoked or dried meat like tasso or jerky, I usually had at least one campfire meal of either a traditional breakfast with coffee or a dinner of beef stew or potato soup. My lunch meal usually only required a can opener and a spoon to eat. Few utensils to wash and carry. Fry pan to wash with breakfast or stew pot to wash in the evening. I've always tried to use the kiss (keep it simple stupid) philosophy on meal prep.

My hours are going to be long I have no idea how I am going to have time to feed myself.
Probably just going to have to go into survival mode and eat more canned stuff at home too.

On days when I had absolutely no time for dinner, I'd have what I called "fake supper" -a Snickers bar.

Grilled a burger on the Weber yesterday for lunch. 1/2# fresh ground local farm raised meat. I mixed in a chopped roasted Hatch chili and a couple of slices of diced red onion and 3 tabs of cold butter. Mixed it all up and made sure the butter was inside the meat and grilled. Topped it with a slice of. Oars Head BluMar cheese, homemade whole seed mustard and butter lettuce. Loved it.

I eat at least one of those "fake" meals each day. I don't eat candy bars so it will usually be some peanut butter or a hunk of hard cheese.


The Army had a rule requiring all the troops to eat at least one meal per week of C rations. For efficiencies sake and to follow the rule at the same time, all the meat and vegetables were dumped into giant pot's, mixed, heated; and served. I was always surprised they didn't toss the cigarette packages and the instant coffee packets, and the canned deserts into the pots. I always thought it would have tasted better if they had tossed everything into the pots.

I cooked some hamburgers on the grill on Easter Sunday. The hamburger was 85% Angus beef. I don't like the 90% ground beef for burgers. It cooks too dry for me. Someone told me to start laying an ice cube on each pattie after the first flip and it will keep the meat moist. I haven't tried it, but I will someday.


I also cooked some venison ground meat patties and venison breakfast sausage patties. I expected them to be dry, but they were actually more moist than the beef patties.


My wife has a little hand press to make beef patties with ground beef. She can press the meat into patties as thick or thin as you want. I like it because the patties hold together well on the grill and they cook evenly and they are large enough to fit properly on a large bun.

I'm going to quit cooking. I've been giving the warnings. It's past time.
