Hi, I've been watching this community for a few months, but just joined. I'm looking for good recipes (preferably fairly simple, though I might be able to handle a more complex one) that contain meat and are good eaten room temperature/cold. I have a feast coming up that will be sort of picnic-style, without much chance to reheat food. (There is a microwave, but it may be pretty busy with other people trying to reheat things, and I'd rather not get into that competition.)

A few restrictions:
-No nuts or peanuts (pine nuts are okay, though)
-No hot pepper or black pepper

(In my inquiries elsewhere, the best candidate recipe so far is salami rolled around cream cheese, which has been suggested by two different people.)

This beef roast serves a lot, freezes very well, and requires a whopping three ingredients. It does take a while to cook, but it's 99% passive cooking. And it's really hard to mess up.

Specialized Equipment: You'll need a roasting rack. If you haven't got one, you can improvise (as I did today when I realized mine had gone astray a couple of apartments ago) with forks--they must be 100% metal, and you put them upside-down (so the curving tines hold the meat up) next to each other--four will do for a roast this size.

4-6 lb. beef rump roast
1 envelope instant onion soup mix
2-4 10.75 oz. cans cream of mushroom soup*

*In the US, Campbell's sells a 26-oz. "Family Size" can of mushroom soup that will suit most roasts.

simple to make in oven or crock pot )

This is one of those things that comes up for me time and time again, and I never know how to deal with it. Now, I can ask you guys. YAY!

So, I have a recipe that calls for cooked ham. I got some at Whole Foods, from the deli counter, and it's a *huge* piece. I'm hoping to be able to use half of it in the recipe, and save the other half for a while. Of course, that makes me think of freezing it, but I do not know if that is possible.

So, dear knowledgeable residents of [community profile] boilingwater, can I freeze cooked ham? And if so, how would I best do so to have it come back out of the freezer in top condition?

Thanks in advance!

First up, this is not a last minute dinner. This is an all-afternoon or all-day dinner. Plan accordingly. When you get a formulation you like, it makes excellent leftovers. This recipe is imprecise, and can be tailored to your personal needs in beef stew. This is how my mother made it, and it's still one of my favorite foods.

Stew beef (not too much fat, cut in bite-sized cubes); you could use chicken but then it would no longer be beef stew -- in a quantity sufficient to let everyone have at least three good chunks in their bowl
a whole mess of potatoes, scrubbed or peeled and cut in chunks; about any kind of potato will do although I have not tried it with sweet potatoes -- about half a large potato per serving but you can fiddle with this.
Vegetable or vegetables of choice (I often use carrots and celery) cut in small pieces -- maybe 1/4 cup per serving but you can fiddle with this as you prefer
Onions in your preferred form (fresh cut in pieces, dried, or onion powder)
Garlic in your preferred form (fresh chopped or pressed, or garlic powder)
Italian seasoning, or as many as you can find/as you actually like of its usual components (bay leaves, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage, marjoram, savory, coriander [I personally loathe it], red pepper flakes, parsley)
Oil (optional)
Salt (optional)
Soy sauce (optional)

Serving suggestion: with bread

I present to you hot dogs and spaghetti:

How to do it:

-Set a pot of water to boil and cut up your hot dogs into 3rds or 4ths.
-Next, take 5-7 pieces of dried spaghetti and impale your hot dog pieces in whatever direction you please.
-Carefully (making sure not to break the spaghetti or burn yourself) put the hot dogs into the boiling water for 7-10 minutes (or however long the pasta directions say).
-Remove from boiling water (either drain or spear) and serve with ketchup, mustard and/or spaghetti sauce.
