Default Post pics of what your cooking for dinner tonight!

So we do this on another forum and it actually helps to give me ideas for things to cook and I find it interesting to see what others are cooking so if you feel like playing post up some pics of what your cooking!!



I found a recipe on pirate in their cooking forum (you have to be a paid member to view it) that has 41 pages so far of people raving about this potato soup recipe so I finally decided it was time to make it happen in my house!

Well here we go!! Any recipe that starts with crisping 2lbs of bacon has to be good right!?!?



I even have help!

Seems like things are happening properly with the bacony goodness in the bottom of the pot to be cooked into the soup...

More help



It already smells amazing



Next time I'm doing 3lbs of bacon so I have an extra pound to munch on while I'm waiting because this is amazing!

And now a beer while I let this cook for the next two hours!

not my picture but the wife has been making these



you basically take thick sliced lunchmeat into a muffin tin and put a egg in it. i been eating these for breakfest and lunch for the past 2 weeks... though i am starting to get a little sick of them. they kinda just taste like a egg mcmuffin.

I found a recipe for carnitas today and it looked really good so I decided to go ahead and give it a try! I started with a 9lb pork shoulder and after trimming the skin off and removing the bone after cooking I should net somewhere around 7lbs of delicious meat! Here is what I started with.

The recipe calls for cooking the meat in a slow cooker but I don't have time for that so in here it went!

I didn't get a pic before I put the lid on but I'll for sure get some when its all finished!

These turned out fantastic! After cooking in the InstantPot for an hour and then it sit for another hour to release the pressure they meat just fell apart. I pulled it all apart and tossed it under the broiler for a few minutes then turned all the meat over and broiled it again so I would have some nice crispy pieces in there as well and man was it good. I was a bit concerned at first when I tried a piece still in the pot that it was going to be way to spicy for the wife but it ended up just about perfect for her so thats a win!

And ready to eat!

I also made some cilantro lime rice as a side but no pics of that.

Thanks! I actually really enjoy cooking the part that I dislike is that our kitchen is very small right now so I don't have a lot of room for prep but on the other hand it forces me to clean up frequently! We are looking at houses again so hopefully we will be moving soon and after the garage a really nice kitchen is next on my list of wants lol!
