Cowboy Casserole

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

How about a new recipe for 2021? Not that changing the calendar does anything magical and makes the awful things of 2020 go away, but it is a convenient time to start or explore new things. This here recipe is not difficult and is mighty tasty.

If you want to try an easy new recipe at the beginning of 2021, this version of Cowboy Casserole may be just what you want.

It was given to me by Charlene Osborne. I'm giving her credit because, like other recipes, people start with the basic instructions and then make adjustments as they see fit. She made it hers. That's what you'll do. 

I understand that the version Charlene encountered at first was not exactly something to send a telegram home about.

The measurements are in the US Customary System. Y'all will have to do conversions your ownselves if you want things in millimetrics.

Product names listed are because she uses them, not because either of us is being paid to promote them. You savvy that, Sam?

 

Prep time is about 15 minutes, then it bakes for 25-30 minutes.

Cowboy Casserole Ingredients:

• 1 pound of hamburger (or ground turkey burger, or bison burger)
• 28-ounce Bush's barbecue baked beans
• 1/4 cup honey barbecue sauce or regular sauce if preferred (big name or store brand, whatever)
• 1 8-oz package fresh mushroom, about 2 cups (or your preference)
• 1/2 yellow onion (or your preference)
• 8 ounce package of shredded cheese (Colby-Monterey Jack, pizza blend, or similar)
• 1 tube of rolls (8-count), Grands by Pillsbury preferred


Instructions:

• Preheat oven at 350
• Slice or chop the mushroom and onion, then sauté
• Pan-fry the burger until brown, drain
• Mix burger, beans, sauce, mushrooms, onion in 9x9 square baking dish
• Do layers: layer of the mixture, then shredded cheese on top mixture with shredded cheese on top
• Repeat layers
• Split the biscuits the long way, spread out on top, do not overlap
• You can sprinkle some garlic and onion powders on top
• Bake for 25-30 minutes — you don't want under-cooked dough, but careful not to burn it
• Take pictures and share on social media because that's why social media exists

Unless you're serving a big group, you'll have a bit left over. That's fine, cover the now-cooled dish with plastic wrap and store it in the icebox. Reheating works well in microwave-safe bowls. You'll thank me later.

She wants it!

The Secular Science Industry Propagandizes Same-Sex Attraction

We are told that the peer review process in the secular science industry is a method of providing truth and accuracy, and ensuring correct procedures were followed in submitted papers. That sounds like a mighty good idea, but peer-reviewed papers are often bad,  downright fraudulent, or hoaxes . Homosexual activists passed a peer-reviewed paper in  Science  magazine, but that should not have happened. It was fake science research, and  Science  was embarrassed by the fraudulent tactics. The secular science industry did not seem to learn from this. Assembled with images from Open Clipart After the Science  humiliation and the "We're so sorry if we've caused you any pain, Uncle Albert, and boy, does this hurt the credibility of science itself in the public eye" schtick, the disastrous Obergefell decision by the US Supreme Court struck. (That is one reason I believe we're under divine Judgment .) After that ruling, the militant Gaystapo cut loose with harassing peopl

Smoking that Doobie, Brother

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Many countries, especially on the western side of the Atlantic, have decriminalized cannabis (weed, pot, doobies, grass, smoke, reefer, whatever) and legalized it for medical use. Many places have made recreational use legal as well. Even where illegal, enforcement of laws is often sporadic . And there was great rejoicing among pot smokers. In fact, here in not-all-that-far-upstate New York, cops don't care. Polly Pothead in the apartment next door was chugging away so much, the smoke could be seen not only in the hallway, but seeped into our own apartment. Police did nothing. That was before it was legal, but her usage is the same as before; smoking wacky tobaccy just wasn't important enough to enforce the law. Also, she's a terrible conversationalist. One article I found in my research mentioned that Mary Jane was originally illegal because it is harmful. (Oh, come on! Don't get a burr under your saddle. You know it's true. People who argue

Four-Legged Snake in the News Again

Writing about sciency things can be both fascinating and exasperating. The fascinating part is for those of us who like science, but the exasperating part is doing updates. New discoveries are a part of science, especially regarding origins. Darwin's disciples are continually attempting to rewrite history to accommodate observed evidence and still preserve their narrative of atheistic naturalism. Excitement over a supposed four-legged snake fossil slithered back ( which I posted about earlier ) and disputes continue. Tetrapodophis amplectus , Wikimedia Commons / Ghedoghedo  ( CC BY-SA 4.0 ) This whole thing was sensationalized from the get-go to promote fish-to-fool evolution and millions of years. Indeed, some important facts about the fossil were not even discussed. It "sheds light" on evolution. Secularists think it would be (insert mouth click here like Cousin Eddie) really nice, but they still have nothing upon which to base that claim. Mayhaps if they realized that
