    This reminds me of a previous roommate. I was chillin in the living room and from the kitchen I heard someone yell "how can it be both burnt and frozen?!?" Thawing=good.

    Only problem is I buy cheap as shit blenders and then they end up breaking or only blending half my drink
    It sounds like you need a Blendtec blender.

      Fish Grill Packets

      Rip off a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil bigger than a big dinner plate. Smear some butter in the middle.

      Plunk down a fish fillet on top of the butter. It shouldn't reach to any of the edges of the foil. If the fish hangs over the edge of the foil, cut it in half and save it for another packet.

      Throw a few baby carrots and a couple of potato slices on top. Thinner potato slices work better than thick. Season with your favorite seasoned salt (or just S&P). If you wanna be fancy, add a lemon slice or two and some sliced onion. Add a few butter pats and / or olive oil splash.

      Now, you are going to take the bottom edge of the foil and pull it up (over the food) to the meet the top edge of the foil -
      crimp tightly. Now crimp the left and right edges. You don't want any steam and / or butter to get out while cooking.

      Repeat the above steps until you have as many dinner packets as the two of you will probably eat.

      Place the packets on the grill, but do not place it right above the hottest coals. You will need to flip it over every five minutes so one side doesn't burn. Don't poke holes into the foil or all that butter will run out and Mrs. McCool will not like your dinner.

      Try one packet at 15 minutes. You will know if you need more time. If you have stuffed the packets, more time - try first at 20 minutes.

      To eat them - place a packet on a solid surface (plate, but I use whatever at the campfire). Rip a gash into the top (watch for the first escape of steam - burns the unwary) and scoop food out. Have Mrs. McCool reward you in the way of your choosing...
      I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

        My hubby is well-trained too, thanks to my mother-in-law. She's had rheumatoid arthritis since he was a kid, so he learned to take care of a lot. He does all the laundry and vacuums, I do most of the cooking and dusting. i can suggest what not to make for your wife. Years ago, pre-primal, he made dinner while I was at work. I walked in to find spaghetti with Ragu and a can of tuna mixed in. I've never let him live it down. he's great at cooking breakfast though!

          If you have a slow cooker, throw a beef roast (a fatty enough cut) with some beef broth and some dried herbs, onions, pepper, etc inside and let it slow-cook while you're out with your clients. You get back home and all you have to do is cook some veggies. If you have a large enough slow cooker, you could also throw in some veggies (ie carrots, Brussels Sprouts, turnips, green or yellow string beans, etc). It is idiot proof!

          PS - If you don't have a slow-cooker, get one. They are pretty cheap. You don't need the ones with the timers, unless it's a feature you really want.

            Veggie bin soup
            All the veggies threatening to go bad in your veggie bin or on the counter (be careful with the peppers), cut to roughly the same size
            oil or butter
            leftover meat
            herbs and spices
            broth or stock

            Separate your veggies into 2 grouping2: crunchy and soft. Make that 3 if you have potatos or winter squash. Stea your potatos and squash until soft. Fry up the crunchy veggies until they start softening up (you can poke it and feel it's soft.) Throw in the soft veggies (hold off on the leafy stuff) and the peeled squash/ potato. Stir that around until the really soft stuff (like tomatoes) start breaking down. Throw in enough broth to cover it all and let it simmer until it's all good and friendly, seasoning as needed (turmeric, salt, pepper, cayenne, coriander and curry powder will fix a LOT of off flavors here, just don't go overboard.) Add in your green stuff and cook until it's wilted and mixed in. Now, apply your blender or blendy stick (I LOVE my blendy stick) until mostly smooth. Add in the meat, cook until meat is warmed up, and serve.

            Throw It In the Pan AKA Dog Lunch

            I'm not kidding with the name. You're stir frying whatever sounded good, whether it was cooked or not.
            Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

              What blender is that in the video?

              Also...

              You have to invest in a blender! I believe mine is a breville (not near it at the moment) it was around $250, is 750 watts, works fantastic....the vitamix brand is highly raved about as well.

              Lol, Mrs.McCoolhas quite the sense of humor!

                That's what I do but I layer small asparagus spears on the bottom, then fish, then diced mushrooms, a pat of butter and some minced garlic on top.

                  I think this is a great idea for you Nic! There is much more leeway for mistakes with a slow cooker than there is with other types of cooking. Also, you are usually dealing with large hunks of meat - which it seems you need. And as a bonus they are usually less expensive cuts as well. If you have Mark's first cookbook the "primal pot roast" is a good one for a slow cooker. And I'm sure you can find some chicken recipes for the slow cooker as well.

                  But you still must make sure you thaw your food before cooking.

                  By the way Nic. I just want to thank you for starting the two funniest threads currently running on this site. Between this one and your "dude, I stink" page, you have me constantly laughing. Hope this board helps remedy out both your issues.

                      Also you say "both" my issues, like they're the only ones. I'm just scratching the surface of group self help, dude.

                        Looking into it now. Totes need a good blender, dude. I've been having to use my Doc Brown baby puree blender thingy to mix my shakes recently. Gets messy.

                          Come on McCool, swole ass bro like you has to rock the vitamix. I'll just say, 2.25 horsepower. You could atomize a brick in the damn thing. You can't be mixin' up shakes in some halfsteppin' blender. You gotta blend big to be big!

                            I think I just had a brogasm.

                            I just bought a vitamix pro series for the gym. Should ship in a day. Couldn't find one with a diesel-powered motor, kinda bummed, dude.

                              I'm really impressed with you:

                              #1) You screw up while cooking in such an incredible variety of ways.
                              #2) You keep on tryin'!

                              keep it up.

                              I just subscribed to your diary, so I look forward to learning the rest there. I have one too, but I'm not nearly as good a writer as you.

                                Put in blender: 2 avocados, 2 bananas, and a dash of coconut milk, or whatever liquid (protein powder plus wate works) and blend. This make yummy pudding if you don't overdo the liquid. Or you can add yogurt instead of liquid. Great snack or breakfast.

                                Another option: canned pumpkin, banana, and liquid/yogurt/protein powder
                                Don't let anybody tell you, "You can't" just because they can't.
