"Pioneer Woman" vs. my life the next week [moved from Food Media]
OK, I've been bashed on this board recently. For the next week I will be living on 385 acres in South Texas. I will be responsible for about 20 cutting horses (show horses), a few hundred head of cattle, a few dogs and my geriatric cat. I've been preparing a lot of food for both me and my cat. I'll be working all of the horses every single day, feeding and probably cleaning as well.
After a 12-14 hour day of working horses, I just need quick meals for me. The ranch is way away from even a WalMart.
Sorry to hear about the bashing. No sense taking it to heart.
And can I say: CROCKPOT! I made a fab beef-and-barley stew this week, plus chicken-in-salsa-verde. Make up a big pot each of rice,and egg noodles for the side; lots of tortillas.
Can you pre-prep the feline food? I have both Strombeck and Pitcairn, and their recipes seem amenable to freezing and pre-prep.
Seriously, girl, WTH, no crockpot!!! I could lend you my 4-qt, I think I'm nearby. (The knob is missing.) :)
How long do you have to prep? You could run this camping style, with food prepped beforehand, coolers, and sandwich stuff, etc. Is there a full kitchen/stove/oven/fridge?
