    As I sit here eating some very tasty mexican lasagne, I figured I'd like to share how to make it. It's cheap, it's easy, it's tasty, and doesn't involve killing animals.

    2 cans of Rotel tomatoes (diced tomatoes with chili peppers)
    1 can of refried beans
    1 box of cheapo mexican rice mix
    20 (or so) yellow corn tortillas
    1 pound of colby jack cheese
    1 pound of pepper jack cheese

    Make the rice. Cut up the tortillas into strips. Grate all the cheese into two little piles. Layer everything in a pan (tortillas, cheese, tortillas, beans, tortillas, tomatoes, tortillas, cheese, rice etc.). Put the whole thing in the oven on 350 for about 20-25 minutes - just long enough to get all the cheese melted. Eat.

    I need to know how to cook more stuff. What are your lazy bassist recipies?
  2. 2 eggs

    about a half teaspoon of ground chili

    10 or so drops of tabasco

    half a teaspoon of ground cajun spice

    a little less than half teaspoon of curry powder

    3 drops vanilla essence

    grated cheese

    in the microwave on full for 3 mins


    Make sure to mix it very well though. The vanilla is not necessary, but I like it. Tastes good between bread or toast, if I feel like it. Now I want one.

    Cook instant mashed potatoes, brown hamburger, warm up corn.

    Place hamburger in oven safe dish, then corn, then potatoes.

    Buy the following:

    Fresh fish (I prefer orange roughy or trout)
    Pace Mexican Sensations Cilantro Lime sauce (it's in the salsa section)
    fresh limes

    Put the fish in a ziploc or sealable plastic container. Pour the Pace sauce over the fish so it's completely covered. Squeeze all the juice out of half of a good sized lime into the bag as well and then shake it around. Let sit for at least 2 hours. Then pull out of the bag and pan fry on medium high heat until fish is slightly flaky. Put some more of the cilantro lime sauce on the fish a couple of minutes before it's done. Tastes great!! You could also add a bit of fresh cilantro to the marinade. The fresh lime juice added to the marinade is key though.

    I suggest serving with salad, asparagus and maybe some kind of potato or rice.

    The old stand by:
    brown hamburger
    add 1 can corn, 1 can baked beans, an onion, and ketchup.
    I bet that would be funny if I knew what a coot was.

    Having grown up in south Louisiana, and experienced the joys of coot (it's a waterfowl...er...waterfoul...), I can say this is utterly accurate, the brick will taste better.

    My contribution: Lazy Man's Tuna Casserole

    One box of Macaroni & Cheese, prepared according to label on box
    One can of tuna
    Tony Cachere's Cajun Spice to taste

    Mix tuna and spices into pot with mac & cheese. For effect, eat out of same pot.

    That reminds me of bachelor salad:

    Get head of lettuce. Get salad dressing. Hold lettuce over sink. Pour salad dressing on lettuce. Take a bite. Repeat until full. Drain away mess into garbage disposal.

    The easiest tortilla soup in the world (and it actually tastes like you did something) ;

    You need:
    1 family sized can of Campbells Chicken and Rice soup
    1 can Ro-Tel diced tomatoes and chiles
    1 can Cream Style Corn
    1 can Ranch Style Beans
    about a handful of leftover chicken

    Tear up the chicken into little bitty pieces. Throw it in a pot. Open all the cans. Dump them in the same pot. Let cook over low heat till warm throughout.

    Serve over crumbled tortillas in bottom of bowl. Garnish with cheese. Add whatever garnish you feel like additionally. My wife likes to add avocado. I add cilantro.

    Takes about two minutes work and half an hour simmering.

    mustard and ketchup sandwiches
  18. Cheese sandwich. Slice of American cheese, slice of bread. Works really good when you're poor too.

    Cheap steaks
    Carrots/ other veggies
    Garlic Butter

    Take a decent sized piece of tinfoil, cover in garlic butter. Put a steak down, other stuff on top, and another steak on top. Wrap it up and throw it in some coals for about 35 minutes.
  20. Get a microwave, a bowl, a can of soup (your favorite). Insert soup into bowl, insert bowl into microwave, press buttons on microwave that set the time, hit the start button, wait for it to finish cooking, grab a spoon, sit down and enjoy.
