Meat is way too expensive right now.  Our cows had calves recently...one is a little bull soon to be a steer.  His name is Hamburger.

Yeah. This time last year we could still find Boston butts for $1.59 a pound on sale at our local distributor. Back in October we cooked a hundred pounds for a church function and it was $2.39 a pound.
We have a few cows also and are in the process of borrowing a bull from a neighbor to get them knocked up.

Last night I had pork chops (they're still relatively cheap as far a general meat prices go) with corn on the cob and butter beans.

A Wunderbar Pretzel Sandwich from Bavarian Inn at home - a German pretzel bun piled high with Kasseler Rippchen (smoked pork loin), Colby cheese, lettuce and tomato with housemade sweet Bavarian mustard and pickle slices. Before that I had Hunter’s Schnitzel (Jäger Schnitzel) at the restaurant - Tender loin of pork lightly breaded in seasoned breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese, topped with a flavorful mushroom cream sauce. I ordered it off the lunch menu and it only came with housemade stollen and backofenbrot bread, potato cheese puffs and sauerkraut, instead of the stollen (fruit & nut bread), backofenbrot (housemade white bread), noodle soup, cole slaw, pasta salad, cranberry relish, a Michigan seasonal salad, potato cheese puffs, vegetable du jour, sauerkraut, buttered noodles and housemade ice cream that all come with dinners. The potato cheese puffs are the round things in the pic from trip Advisor. It shows a Bavarian Combination dinner - Kasseler Rippchen (smoked pork loin), Schnitzel (breaded loin of pork) and Sauerbraten (marinated roast beef). If you search for Bavarian Inn potato cheese puffs you can find a copycat recipe to make at home, like this one.

I don't know about this recipe, but the ones they make at B.I. are so good I could live on them for a week. Now I'm going to have some apple strudel I got across the street from there at Zehnder's. I did some shopping downstairs in the bakery and it smelled ever so yeasty-lovely when I walked down the stairs. I resisted the urge to press my face against the window as I watched the bakers at work. The smell of goodies baking was almost intoxicating. I bought a bunch of candy and other stuff at both places.

I have a bowl before me with 2 smoked pork and bison jalapeno and cheddar bratwurst set upon the last of a jar of sauerkraut, while I chow down on smoked hot pepper cheese on a plate beside it.

A chunk o' sour cream pound cake.......that's what I'm gnawing on right now.

I had a serving of steaming hot plum pudding (Christmas pudding). The word "plum" is used for what has been called a "raisin" since the 18th century, and the pudding does not in fact contain plums in the modern sense of the word. I'm on my second serving. This time I poured spiced rum on it and lit it. I once gave my ex's grandmother a plum pudding for Christmas with a jar of lemon curd to top it. I bet it was good, but I didn't get any. I'm drinking Stok unsweetened black espresso blend cold-brew coffee with it. This coffee tastes so good I might drink the whole 1.5 quarts non-stop. It's really mild, and to me tastes like it has a hint of chocolate flavor to it. But it's unflavored.

I mixed a box of Betty Crocker scalloped potatoes and and a box of scalloped potatoes. I diced up close to a cup of smoked hot pepper cheese and put that on top. I didn't mix it in, I just poked it under the surface of the sauce before I baked it. I'll be trying that in a  moment. I no longer have a casserole dish big enough to hold a double recipe, my ex took both of my casserole dishes and the one I have now is too small, but it fit in my 2.5 liter Visions saucepan. This is my favorite saucepan by far. It's a glass-ceramic, and you can take it out of the freezer and put it in oven without it exploding like normal glassware. It withstands heat that turns ordinary saucepans into sauce, just like the old commercials used to say. According to my calculator, the temperature of 850 degrees C in this commercial is 1,562 degrees F (Freedom units ;D). The handle gets hotter than Hades in the oven, but does stay fairly cool when cooking on the stove.

I forgot to post on Veterans day that I had a Sweet Heat Fried Chicken Burger that I got for $5.99 off, and a large order of Smothered Fries with Chili, Cheese Sauce, Bacon, Sour Cream and Green Onions, that I used my $5 Freakin' Rewards for. I ate the whole plateful of fries first, then hours later ate my sandwich. It would have been better if it wasn't setting out on the kitchen counter for so many hours, but the fries have to be eaten fresh IMO. Sandwiches warm up okay in the microwave, but fries just aren't the same. If I remember to give them my phone number when I order, I get 1 point on my account for every dollar I spend, and 75 points is good for $5 off.

Having sausage/rotel/cheese dip for a 'mid-afternoon-I-skipped-lunch-again' snack.
Might do stir fried pork strips with onions and peppers and gravy for supper.

Stewed sliced beef. With a cup of cold brew coffee.

I threw away one beef tri-tip because the package was open, and never got around to roasting the second one. A couple days ago I saw a can or red enchilada sauce in the cupboard and it gave me an idea. I sliced the entire roast 3/16" thick across the grain. It was anywhere from about 6" down to practically nothing in length. I poured some vegetable oil in my largest cast iron skillet and added a layer of meat. I seasoned it with garlic pepper blend, added another layer of beef and seasoned it with Frank's Red Hot seasoning blend. Then threw the last bits in and sprinkled chili powder and soul seasoning on it. It made its own liquid as it heated up, and I added more seasoning as I stirred it. Several minutes after it was brown all over I added the 10 ounce can of enchilada sauce, which only halfway covered the meat, so I rinsed the sauce can out with a 7.5 ounce can of Q brand ginger beer and added that. That's a mixer that's too strong to drink, and though ginger wouldn't be a bad flavor to add to the mix. After awhile I tasted the sauce, which tasted tomatoey, but not spicy enough, so I added 2 4.5 ounce cans of diced green chilies. Then I let it simmer for over a half our until the sauce reduced to a nice gravy. I divided it between 2 bowls and ate a whole bowlful of it. It was good, and the beef was nice and tender after stewing that long on top of the stove. The roast was probably close to a pound and a half, and after eating half of it, I'm so full I don't have room for anything else.

Pumpkin Spice Cotton Candy with a cup of strong black coffee. It tasted mainly of cinnamon and was good. I had 4 other flavors in the last week. Orange Dreamsicle was good, too.

Pumpkin Spice?  Ugghh....
