Gonna be a weekend bachelor again this weekend as the wife is driving to pick up the kids from camp, and then stay with my mom until Sunday...(payback I guess for hunting season when me, the boy and the dog disappear)

Been in a bit of a rut with cooks lately, pulled pork, ribs, blackened fish, spatched chix and turkey I'm looking for suggestions for one person meals.

Links to recipes would be greatly appreciated! ;)


  • use some of those leftover meats for a stir fry!

    do a grilled veggie eggstravaganza

    bake a cake for the Sunday Homecoming!

    Wings or pizza always work out great for bachelor nights. Burgers?

    Rowlett, Texas

    Griffin's Grub or you can find me on Facebook

    The Supreme Potentate, Sovereign Commander and Sultan of Wings


  • I agree, stir fry! or wings??

    or you could just smoke a brisket...a long cook with nobody to bother you? that's a real vacation.

    you could try the bob gibson's white sauce on a couple chicky breasts or similar......quick cook, sauce better if made a day ahead, might play with the vinegar and heat flavor to your liking.....

    can google the sauce recipe. I rub down the chicky breasts with a rub and half way through the cook start brushing on the sauce. rub with some heat works best with the vinegar based sauce. t

    Good suggestion, here is the recipe for those interested.


    2 Cups Mayonnaise
    1 Cup Distilled White Vinegar
    1/2 Cup Apple Juice
    2 Teaspoons Prepared Horseradish
    2 Teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
    2 Teaspoons Fresh Lemon Juice
    1 Teaspoon Salt
    1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

    In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and blend well. Use as a marniade, baste, or dipping sauce. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! All good ideas.

    Just got back from the grocery....with a 1.7 lb dry aged T-bone, a brisket (which I have yet to make a good one) for the homecoming, and HAVE to try those Bob Gibson's chicken breast from Tom!

    If Fishless will post what in the heck that breakfast is, I am ALL OVER IT! :woohoo: :woohoo:

    Thanks again!
  • Do something that you love but she doesn't. I am going to be in this same situation in a few weeks but for a whole week. We are traveling to her grandparents and staying for a week but she is staying for a bit over 2 weeks. (lucky school teachers ;)) During this time I will be messing with pizzas and fish most likely. She rarely desires pizza and hates fish.
