    Can ya cook?? U own a crockpot?

    Simple thing is grab a Stoffers Lasagna out of the supermarket freezer and cool it. Will feed many, very easy and no one cares its premade.

    You can also buy a few packs of "little smokey sausages" and throw them in a crockpot with some brown sugar, or bbq sauce, etc and let em cook. I like to wrap each sausage with a piece of bacon and cook in the oven. Then place them in a crock pot and sprinkle brown sugar over them and let them finish cooking....Sweeeet.

    Premade Meatballs cooked in a can of spaghetti sauce

    Macaroni and potato salad (premade) (this you dont have to cook)

    Chicken wings & legs cooked at 350 until brown then put in crockpot with sweet& sour or teriaki, or add bbq sauce, or add some tabasco to make hotwings.

    Pick up some popcorn chicken from KFC and put em in a bowl.

    Dang...off to the refridge..Im hungry /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Big bowl of cool whip, lime jello, chunk pineapple and a 16oz cottage cheese. Mix all in a big bowl, put it back in the big coolwhip dish and eat the rest, then refrigerate.

    Ground chuck, mash in half of a box of finely crushed corn flakes and two eggs. Mix well by hand. Roll into 2" balls and bake (like 350deg for an hour with a little water turning every 15minutes). After its done, mix half bottle ketchup, couple dashes of white vinegar, half a can of coke, and cup or two of brown sugar and whisk to a sweet barbque sauce. Stick cooked ham balls and barbque sauce into crock pot and cook for a couple hours low heat. (brown sugar turns into a sweet glaze, stur from time to time)

    get three boxes of stove top stuffing and three cupcake pans (each pan has 6 muffin spots). Mix stuffing as directed. Grease muffin pans and loosely scoop in stuffing (dont pack it in), then bake at 350 deg for 20-25 minutes. Flip out of pan and serve.

    Make up a half dozon mac'n'cheese boxes, put in glass baking dish and add shredded cheese on top and pour in a cup of milk (you could also add diced peppers or pre-cooked ham chunks or even browned hamburger) bake for 350deg 35-45minutes till brown on top and the milk has cooked out

    could make deviled eggs also
    Boil 2 gallons of water, add in a dozon eggs for 10 minutes (till they float). peal off shells, cut eggs in half, scoop out yokes into bowl. Mix mayo and a touch of pickle juice with yokes and mash, scoop mix back into egg halves and lightly powder with paprika! MMM MMM

    could always buy a veggie plate and dip or ice cream bars, premade frozen pies (just bake and serve type)

    aI am going to try this one on Thursday:

    Supreme Pizza Pasta Salad


    2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
    1/2 medium red onion, chopped
    8 fresh white button mushrooms, sliced
    1 small green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1 stick pepperoni, casing removed and cut into a small dice
    1 pound ball fresh mozzarella or fresh smoked mozzarella, diced
    20 leaves fresh basil, torn or thinly sliced
    1 pound wagon wheel pasta, cooked to al dente and cooled under cold water, then drained
    Dressing:
    1 teaspoon garlic salt
    1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves or Italian dried seasoning
    1 rounded tablespoon tomato paste
    2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, eyeball it
    1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, eyeball it
    Freshly ground black pepper
    Combine tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, peppers, pepperoni, mozzarella, basil and pasta in a big bowl. Whisk garlic salt, oregano or Italian seasoning, tomato paste and vinegar together. Stream in extra-virgin olive oil while continuing to whisk dressing. When oil is incorporated, pour dressing over pasta salad, add a few grinds of black pepper to the bowl, then toss salad to coat evenly. Adjust your seasonings and serve salad. Leftovers make a great lunch or snack the next day!

    I took deviled eggs, cream cheese rollups, and an eggnog pie to mine...well my co-worker/friend took the pie, but my wife made all of it. The deviled eggs were the biggest hit. I put them out at 6am for people to snack on, and all 40 were gone by 8am. LOL

    my office was pretty ripe, no doubt, but it usually is after lunch. It was NOTHING like Hot wing farts, but maybe more like dog farts. Those I can stand as long as they're mine and not from a dog. I didn't notice anyone else passing excessive flatulance, but maybe it was mingling in with mine or they just weren't doing it around me in fear of a deadly chemical poision errupting from the mixture.

    I put "pot luck" in the search engine and here's what it came up with. Don't know how lucky it would be if you served it....
