I didn’t plan any food for today, as I wasn’t even sure there would be a game.
But your food looks good Smokey!😁

Brats....it was raining pretty good here yesterday and we didn't want to get soaked, so my wife made them in the oven....despite my expectations, they were terrific.

I prefer mine in a bun drench with peanut (or sunflower seed) butter...just outstanding.

I’m making spaghetti for tonight.
I take store sauce, then add things like fresh mushrooms and leeks.
Yummy!

I've never made my own Spaghetti/Marinara Sauce. I do however know someone that does and they make enough to home can quart portions for future uses. No thin/watery Marinara Sause in their house.

As for me an above average Marinara Sauce replaced Spaghetti Sauce years ago. I too like to add things like mushrooms, chopped onion, and Italian Meatballs when I make linguine or spaghetti.

My wife got me one of those new pressure cookers.
Making corn beef cabbage taters and carrots used to take 12 hours in a slow cooker. With the pressure cooker, now takes about an hour.
(Two hours if she wants a second batch😁)
Oh, and she got me one of those air fryers, for $26 at a thrift store. It goes for $100 new, and it didn’t look like it was used at all.

The best part of slow cooking is how tender the meats (and other foods) turn out. A pressure cooker can reduce cooking time, but is the final result fast cooked meat that's as tough as shoe leather?

Also, with a slow cooker one can keep Chili or Beans or Soup or whatever serving hot for many hours. Smaller slow cookers are perfect for hot cheese dips (a popular idea for family gatherings).

Time is also a relative thing. Placing the ingredients into a slow cooker not only perfectly cooks/tenders/seasons food, but it can also provide your home with some great smells. I don't mind my home smelling really great as I slow a pot of Black-eyed Peas with Salted Pork and chucked Onion/s. I like the perk it adds to the total experience.

Actually, the pressure cooker makes the meat just as tender as the slow cooker did.
Slow cookers still have their place.

Snow in SE Virginia where I grew up was a maybe 1 to 2 times a winter event. Accumulations in amounts over 6' were rare. Still even if we just got a dusting, we could be sure that a large pot of beef vegetable soup would be cooking on the stove top. Our garden would supply canned or frozen vegetables to go with the fresh beef. You could find everything from corn, potatoes, and onions to green beans, okra, and cabbage and more. The smell would fill the house and sneaking samples from the pot was a must. As a formal meal, for me, saltine crackers with a bowl or 2 was enough. My Dad might fix a sandwich to accompany his soup or he'd call for sharp cheese to slice up. To this day I still enjoy soup, but none will ever surpass our Snow Day Soup.

Aren’t memories like that special?
When I was a kid I hated chili.
Then when I was old enough to go deer hunting with my dad and older brother, my dad told me “you better learn to like chill. That’s what we eat for the hunt.” Needless to say, I love chili now. It brings back good memories for me. I only got to hunt one season with my dad, as he died of a massive heart attack 2 months later . 😔

Zero2Cool (2h) : I think even if Kinky is active, Damon is playing.
KRK (2h) : With Keke doubtful, do you think snacks will be active?

Zero2Cool (14-Jan) : I dunno about all that. I just heard on the radio that contact tracing showed no concerns. I counted that as a win. :-)
Cheesey (14-Jan) : That’s good. If he did practice with the team, others could be infected.
Zero2Cool (14-Jan) : Nope. Contact tracing was good.
Cheesey (14-Jan) : Oh geez. I wonder if we will lose any other players now?

Smokey (13-Jan) : Cold temperatures are one thing, but the wind chill can make this game brutal. LA may not be prepared for such cold weather !
Cheesey (13-Jan) : 10to20moh wind...sorry!😁
Cheesey (13-Jan) : Low to mid 30s, 20 to 30mph winds

wpr (12-Jan) : In a way it remind me of the Cards/Cubs trading players between games of a doubleheader. 1922
beast (12-Jan) : Never been allowed before... as active roster guys aren't allowed, and before 2020 PS players have never been allowed to play in games before. And might never be allowed again

Zero2Cool (11-Jan) : Jared Veldheer signing with Packers, set to make NFL playoff history
packerfanoutwest (11-Jan) : ok enuff on any team not in this years playoffs
TheKanataThrilla (11-Jan) : I think that they had to move on from Pederson. The Wentz contract is a noose on this team. They really have to try to make something positive out of it and Pederson would make it impossible.
Cheesey (11-Jan) : 3years removed from winning the super bowl. It’s a “what have you done for me lately” league.
