    I have one that is a bit like that. A mouli grater is slightly different because you keep turning a knob to do the grating:

    I imagine that pan would be good for lots of uses,
    as long as it doesn't spin too fast...LOL!
    Slow rotation. I think it’s wearing out though. It pauses/catches. But a little tap sets it working again.

    Sounds like maybe the Presto Pizazz cooker, Parsi? With sort of a turntable that moves around under the heating element? …
    Yup. That’s the one. There is a second element under the turntable and you can choose between using one or both of the elements.

    I haven’t done it for quite awhile, but I have improvised “pizza” using crackers or bread. Some tomato paste mixed with favorite pizza seasonings topped with cheese on top the bread. Perhaps ground meat browned with onions and bell peppers.

    I've had mini-pizzas made with English muffins.

    Coleslaw. I love it. Especially when it's made with a sweet-sour dressing, rather than the creamy, made with mayo type. I've found an easy sweet sour dressing that can easily be poured over the bagged coleslaw you can find in the produce department, or is also good over fresh spinach (or other greens) salad. The basic recipe follows, and then some suggested variations.

    Place 2 cups white sugar, 1 cup Apple cider vinegar and 1/4 cup water into a saucepan. Add 1 tablespoon dry mustard, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp. Mustard. Stir, and bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue cooking
    until the mixture starts to thicken, about three minutes. Remove from heat, cool thoroughly before use.

    Variations: use regular mustard rather than mustard powder. Or Dijon mustard, or some other kind.
    Increase/decrease the vinegar/sugar ratio, depending on taste. We like it tart, so I always increase the vinegar.
    Add a tsp or so of one of the following herbs: dill, tarragon, coriander, cilantro, oregano, Italian herb mix. Or experiment!
    Use some different vinegar, like rice vinegar, or substitute some of the Apple cider vinegar with balsamic vinegar, or rosemary vinegar, or..

    If using over cabbage, you can pack the slaw into freezer containers and store excess in the freezer. Otherwise just use as needed, over almost any sort of salad.

    So here we go. Nothing like a cozy cooking program to get us through a cold snowy winter...well, maybe not snowy for everyone. And surprising enough, not here in central Wisconsin yet, which is MOST unusual for mid December!

    Anyway, Lazy Cooking with Cat is intended to be YOUR thread. I'll certainly toss in my easy recipes, but you should feel free to do the same. Also add in anything you might have done to simplify your activities in the kitchen (besides using the phone to call out for deliveries. I suspect we all have the local pizza place and Chinese place on speed dial! Safety tips would be good, too. (Howie, staying out of the kitchen except for a path to a refrigerator will count.)

    I got around to the ham today. Already talked about cooking it; Basically throw it cut side down in a pan, throw pan in oven, 325, for 15 minutes a pound. Cooking nicely. About to scrub up a couple of sweet potatoes, cut out any bad spots (why do they seem to always have bad spots??), and toss them in the oven with the ham. I really don't like sweet potatoes with marshmallows and other sticky stuff on them...I just butter them, toss in some cumin sometimes, put them in a dish and bake them. They're plenty sweet...that's why they're called SWEET potatoes! :)

    Then we have some baby carrots and tiny tomatoes for a side. Tom Cat likes those, dipped in ranch dressing. That'll be dinner here....

    Leftover ham can be used for LOTS of things. I'll share some of those recipes tomorrow...when I have leftover ham..
    COOL THREAD CAT! !!!. ahhhh luvz it.

    Some really cool recipies.

    Thanks again

    Agate, I use english muffins for mini pizzas too, or just use a can of tuna or salmon with a base of garlic butter/oil and cheddar or mozza on top under the broiler for a bit.

    Good, inexpensive way to get some healthy fish into the diet.

    I have a great, easy olive oil/apple cider vinegar and I think a bit of sugar (or honey or agave) dressing tossed with a bag of cold slaw, but it doesn't require heating first. I'll go check to find exact & amount of ingredients. Cabbage is high in anti-cancer properties!
