Came across this “CanCooker” at my local GS. Pretty cool take on a possible off-grid cooking method. From what I can tell it is a large pot with a tight-fitting lid that is clamped shut.  A small amount of water is added – then food is thrown in. It basically acts as an oven and a steamer. There are a variety of recipes I looked at and they sound really good kinda like a Crock Pot.

Tennessee is suing the Federal government to stop forcing the state to accept both refugee’s and the financial expenses that come with them. I like it. The more States-rights can be put out there and get the idea that if it is NOT in the Constitution then the power should go to the States the better.

Looks like New England is going to get totally SLAMMED with high wind’s, frigid temps, and in some places over 20″ of snow.  Be safe folks!!

Speaking of snow – Saturday night my area actually received a few inches. It was gone by the afternoon but was nice waking up to. Jake and Bella enjoyed it while it lasted.
