Simply hot is fine. I go to lunch with a friend from Korea, he'll say this is hot. I say me hot or you hot? He hasn't let me down yet.

I got divorced three years ago last November. My daughter was 6 and my son was 9. I got joint custody, they are with me one week and their mother one week. Their mom has to be at work at 7:00a.m. so she drops them at my house every week day she has them as well. I take them to school or day care every day.
I can cook better and keep a cleaner house than most of the women I have ever dated. It actually intimidates a lot of them. It seems as though most women also find it attractive.

I'm a pretty simple cook. Mostly meat and taters type of food. I also do a lot of cooking on the grill. Mine, like a lot of kids, aren't real big on vegetables. I keep V-8 fusion because it is a mix of fruit and vegetable juice. You can make an easy meat loaf by mixing some cracker crumbs and a little ketchup with your ground beef and pour a can of cream of mushroom soup over the top. My kids both like Hmaburger Helper, I do that one or two nights.

I am not a single dad (actually my wife and I are expecting our first) but I do enjoy cooking. I tend to do a lot on the grill. When I am not grilling I like to find stuff fast and easy to cook...which usually is crockpot. However I have a few that get done in the oven or on the stove. Here are a few go-tos for my wife and me.

Rootbeer Pulled Pork Sandwhiches (just tried this and it was awesome...probably some of my favorite pulled pork)

1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin (pork shoulder or butt can also be used)
1 (12 ounce) can of root beer
1 (18 ounce) bottle of barbecue sauce
8 hamburger buns

Put pork tenderloin in slow cooker and pour the can of root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until pork shreds easily with a fork.

After pork has cooked, drain and discard the root beer. Shred the pork and place it BACK in the slow cooker. Pour the barbecue sauce over the pork and stir to combine. Serve immediately or keep warm in slow cooker until ready to serve. Serve on hamburger buns.


Bacon BBQ Chicken

2 chicken breasts (or 4 thighs)
1 onion
A bottle of BBQ sauce
Shredded Cheese
A few slices of uncooked bacon
Cast Iron skillet (or other oven safe skillet)

Cut chicken breast in half so you have 4 equal size pieces (I like to pound mine thinner too). Place chicken in a larger ziploc bag and add bbq sauce. Make sure the chicken is nice and coated. Let the chicken marinate for 30 minutes or more. While chicken marinates, slice your onion into thin rings. With a little olive oil or vegetable oil cook the onions in your skillet until nice and carmelized. Remove onions and set onions aside. Turn the heat up on the skillet, and remove each piece of chicken from the bag and place in skillet, cooking about 4 minutes per side. Once cooked, turn the heat off. Turn your oven broiler on HI. While the broiler is heating up, put a little more bbq sauce on each piece of chicken, top with onions, then cheese. Cut your uncooked bacon in half. Place a couple half pieces on the cheese (I use tooth picks to keep the bacon from curling up when cooked). Now place the skillet in the oven and let it cook for a few minutes until the bacon starts crinkling....and you are done.


Other easy things to cook are stir fry, fajitas, and spaghetti. Don't have too many special recipes for those because it usually depends on what I have in the house.

Shoot... I put mine on low...set it on a burner (off) on top of the range...and split for a whole shift of 12 hours...

I might be stupid, but I have been through several of them, and have never had a problem...prolly cooked 500 meals that way...

Fish and chicken don't take an hour to cook, and you can find frozen veggies that only require being plopped in the microwave. Same thing with rice, too.

Tilapia is really tasty and really easy to cook, you can dump some chicken in a pan and make some chicken salad. I reallly don't like cooking soo I've thought of some really simple and fast things to cook.

Fried ravoli is good, too, and easy to do.

So if beef is frozen, can you thaw it as you brown it?

Doesnt turn out good in my book, too much water. You can thaw it in micro or put it in a ziploc and put it in hot water.
