Two Cooks ARE Better Than One!

We went to the deer lease between Christmas & New Year's, to hunt for the "Big One!" This is always our longest stay each year in "hunting paradise!" One of the fellow hunters on the lease once said, "I always lost weight during deer season, but since you have gotten on the lease, I have GAINED weight!" Well, that is because of No.1 Brother Cook! I am married to one of the two brothers on the lease, and cooking is one very important skill their Mother taught them.
One morning Allen made his infamous Migas and another morning, John (No.2 Brother Cook) made his Muffin Pan Eggs. Of course, we had spiral cut ham from Chrismas Eve, and big Cat Head Biscuits tucked along side.
Part of the fun at the deer lease each year, is to see what wide variety of food we can cook while we are there! We have anything from Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler with homemade vanilla ice cream made on site, to Homemade Baked Lasagna or just a plain ole' fashioned Iceberg Lettuce Salad with Miracle Whip. (Yes-it was ACTUALLY good-but everything tastes better there!)
I do not believe there is another deer lease like this in South Texas! Yes-sir-eee, I love going to the deer lease after Chrismas Day! For more than a week (for the last 10 years), we have no cares, no worries, no traffic or garbage pick-up, no park & ride or "BIG" bosses... just 6,000 acres of pure South Texas beauty and lots & lots of special "grub"! I love this life!

All of these food pictures are making me hungry. Is the recipe for the muffin pan eggs a secret or can you share? They look yummy and you know I love to cook!
