Happy Labor Day – Hope You Have the Day Off
We are taking this day “off”. For us that will mean finishing up cooking over 44 lbs of chicken and making another 12 pounds of Dorothy’s meatballs to put up for the Oct. Workshop. But for us, well that is kind of like a day off.
Have you ever wondered what labor day is? Basically it is a day to celebrate how hard Americans work but taking a day off of work. Irony at its finest.
I know now everyone gets to participate, but if you do I hope it is a good day of down time for you and yours. For those out there working today to make sure the rest of us can get things we want, or protecting us, or making sure we can get medical care if something bad happens, thank you.
Have a good day cooking, Jack
Would love to hear how you can cook all that in advance, and then reheat when needed. Any details?
It isn’t hard, we cook, vac seal and heat and serve. We do lunches with croc pot style dishes and just use big roasters like this for heat and serve.
These things rule. We just did 22 pounds of chicken each in two. Dead simple recipe using taco seasoning and rotel tomatoes, fresh lime juice and cilantro.
Serving day we will add some more lime, cilantro and a jar of Mateos Salsa to each one, just turn em on about an hour and a half before serving time.
We do roasted potatoes and carrots for Saturday’s dinner and use these for that too. Takes about 2 hours and they come out fantastic. Equal amounts of potato and carrot diced, fresh parsley, butter, salt and pepper.
Most people use them only for Turkeys but man for making a lot of food they rock and will give you temps up to 400 degrees so they smoke a crock pot for speed.
Wow all that food and great information. No show so we miss out. Joy’s of trucking and getting out of debt. May God Bless y’all.
