I used to beg my mom when I was a kid to make stuffed cabbage. I tried my hand at it and it turned out great
rice and chopped meat with garlic and wrapped in cabbage leafs and boiled in tomato soup with basil.
I bought a 24 quart stock pot at Sam's Club for 30 bucks and filled it up.
It's mainly rice, chicken, shrimp, Calamari, muscles, peppers and spices.
I froze 3/4 of it pyrex dishes and have a ton of it for football sundays.
The ex-wife was an amazing cook, but since she's been gone, I've stuck to VERY simple stuff (tuna and rice kinda stuff) and lots of grilling on my Big Green Egg. I've always been a bit intimidated by cooking but have recently said fuggit and jumped right in. After she left, I re-bought all of the Calphalon cookware she took with her, but recently picked up a Calphalon crock pot/slow cooker, a Black & Decker chopper and some Pyrex bowls and have been whipping up great dishes ever since. My recent favorite has been One-Pan Whiskey Pork Chops, a must have recipe for any single guy. I've also been making a bunch of amazing pork tenderloin recipes in the slow cooker. I am living proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks and that any moron can cook if they want to!
