Discussing Questions And Answers About Sauces For Dry Dog Food

Nancy asks…

What are some quick lunches to make for work?

I am a college student, but will be working full time this summer. I work 9-5 shifts and want to bring a lunch instead of spending $10 a day on lunch. What can I make the night before or in the morning that is filling and tasty?

I also have access to a microwave and fridge.

Jimmy answers:

Ten bucks a day is a darned nice lunch. That being said – you can get much cheaper and still eat really well.

Here’s the thing – if you cook the night before, you may as well eat it for dinner. You may not want the same thing twice in a row, so save it for the second day. If you have a microwave, freezing something immediately after you cook it will keep it much fresher than a fridge.

Now – ideas:

1. Get some ground sirloin – yes, the good stuff. Mix in an egg and a bun torn into little bits. This will stretch it a little and also make it moister, and it will hang together on the grill better. Make burgers. Baste them w/ sauce when they are half done and they won’t dry out unless you cook them to a crisp. Let them cool enough to put in a ziplock bag, and put the ziplock bag inside another ziplock bag – to keep the frost out.
Now – anytime you need a quick burger, just make sure you have buns, keep some condiments in your fridge at work, and nuke your frozen burger. Don’t put it on the bun then nuke it or the bread will be tough. These aren’t going to win awards, but they aren’t bad and they are filling and super cheap when you consider how many meals you get (about 4 burgers in a pound of meat).

2. Get some pillsbury pizza dough. Roll it out. Fill it with meat and cheese and sauce. Don’t get too wild with the sauce or it will be sloppy.

Use leftover grilled chicken with a tiny bit of bbq sauce and cilantro and cheddar for a nice bbq chicken stromboli.

Use leftover manwich and cheese for a sloppy joe stromboli.

Use ham lunchmeat, canned pineapple, and cheese for a hawaiian stromboli. A bit of ragu pizza sauce helps this one.

Use your imagination. You can do almost anything with this. You can stuff them with the previously mentioned hamburgers, or wrap them around a hot dog and cheese as well.

I’m a 250 lb guy and these stromboli’s will feed me twice.

Also – although fresh fruits are better for you, stock up on canned fruit in light syrup and keep a six pack of the pulltop cans in a desk drawer. They make a good side dish and the meal averages out to be lighter and sits better on your stomach. Get raisins for a snack too.

Another key is being prepared with things to take your food in. You can buy the durable/throw away containers now that seal well for very cheap prices. Make sure you always have something to take leftovers in, and you are more likely to use them.


Linda asks…

What is bloodmeal and how does it work to prevent critters from destroying your gardens?

I want to know what is bloodmeal and if it really prevents critters from your garden?

Jimmy answers:

Blood Meal is dried blood, generally obtained from slaughterhouses and sold commercially at garden centers. Blood Meal is a good source of food for your plants/garden and is reasonably effective at deterring nocturnal creatures such as racoons and opossums, as well as bunnies and other small burrowing rodents. HOWEVER, blood meal attracts carrion eaters, and if you just sprinkle blood meal superficially, you will be attracting every crow in the county…and crows do a lot of damage, as well as being known carriers of many diseases (crows will the the first affected and the most significant carriers of the Bird Flu when it hits the US). Here are a few tricks I use in my garden to keep out beasties: fence in the veggie garden, but plant some items that beasties like outside and away from the garden for their consumption (it really will help keep them out of your veggie garden). Surround your veggie garden with onions (deterrent for moles and voles and not palatable to any animal besides humans) and herbs such as dill, lavender, bee-balm, daisies, cat mint, and other pungent herbs, and interplant some dill and cat mint with your flowers. (PS, cat mint is a highly effective mosquito deterrent in the garden and when rubbed directly on the body or clothes, not to mention you will be loved by cats.) Hang old CD/DVDs around the garden — at night they look like huge eyes to predators and are an excellent deterrant, and this is particularly helpful if you have a deer problem. Make a tincture of chewing tobacco, tobasco sauce, and dish soap and spray your plants (even your veggies) and this will help deter bugs as well as beasties. The best way to prevent critters from getting into your garden is to have a dog and a cat or two…the smell and presence of the “predators” –particularly their waste (even if Fluffy isn’t a hunter or Fido just hangs on the porch) — will keep most beasties, large and small, from devouring your garden.

Mary asks…

What are the major accessories I will need for camping besides a tent and Air Mattress?

I am a first time camper, yea I know it is sad but I have just purchased my coleman tent and air mattress and I was just wondering what other esential camping accessories I will need? Also, any camping tips would be most helpful! Thanks

Jimmy answers:

My hubby and I just started tent camping with friends two years ago, and it took us a while to figure out everything we needed (btw, good start getting an air mattress!). Oh, and don’t forget to waterproof your tent BEFORE the trip with waterproofing spray sold at sporting goods stores!

Here’s my abbreviated packing list. You have some items already (obviously), but I’ve highlighted items you might still need to purchase:


-Tarp to Go Under Tent (should be the same size as tent base, not much bigger or you’ll have to fold it under. This keeps the tent bottom dry, and you don’t want rain collecting on the tarp and rolling under!)
-Air mattress
-Air mattress pump
-Sleeping Bags / Pillows
-Extra Blankets (1 per person in case of chilly weather)
-Beach Towel (for when you track mud all over your tent)
-Lantern (battery-operated) to hang in tent
-Foldable Chairs / Lawn Chairs (to sit around fire)
-Rope or Line to hang items to dry on – like wet towels


-Hand Axe (to chop fire wood)
-Long-reach lighters
-Fire-starting kindling twigs (buy them from camping supply stores – they’re wood chips soaked in some fire-starting chemical)
-Pie Irons (to cook food in over the fire – these are ESSENTIAL!)
-Campfire Fork (to roast weiners, marshmallows on)
-Food (should include basics like eggs, bread, peanut butter, deli meats, cheese, butter, hot dogs, s’mores makings, pop, juice, tea, coffee, ketchup, mustard, brownie mix, pizza sauce, pepperoni, potatoes, oatmeal, beef stew, trail snacks, chips, popcorn, etc.)
-Campfire Cooking Pot
-LARGE Cooler with ice
-Egg Holder Storage Case (designed for camping trips)
-Plastic Utensils, Cups, Paper Plates
-Garbage Bags
-Giant Ziploc Bags (to place singed pie irons in when packing to come home)
-Sharp Knife
-Rubbermaid Tote to wash dishes in
-Dish Soap
-5-6 Dish Towels
-Campfire Glove (heatproof gloves that allow you to pick up hot logs off the fire, or hot pans)
-Mugs (for coffee & tea)
-Kettle to boil water (should be campfire safe)
-Bottled water – large quantities
-Picnic Table Cloth (campsite picnic tables are dirrrrrty!)
-Can Opener
-Travel Cutting Board
-Aluminum Foil & Ziploc Bags
-Non-Stick Cooking Spray


-Standard clothes
-Extra socks, 1 pair extra walking shoes
-Rain coat, poncho, or garbage bags
-Bug Spray
-Usual Hygiene Products (forget shampoo if it’s a short trip – you’re allowed to be dirty when tent camping!)
-First Aid items (bandaids, benadryl, calamine lotion, antiseptic cream, aspirin, immodium AD, etc.)
-Hand Soap
-Towels (in case you get soaked in rain)
-Hand Sanitizer


-Deck of Cards / Travel Boardgame
-Camera / Extra Batteries
-Flashlights / Extra Batteries
-Fishing Pole / Tackle Box
-Lots of Cash to buy firewood near campsite – it’s expensive!
-Wallet, ID, Cell Phone

Phew! It seems like a lot, but skip here and there and you’ll be wishing you had these items when you’re at the campsite. It’s worth filling up the car with Rubbermaid Bins filled with this stuff. Oh – don’t forget Rubbermaid Bins to put all this stuff in! You’ll need to keep your possession and food waterproof if it rains!

Have fun!
