It takes a while to fry 12 different things!  In most cases there wasn't a recipe, I was just frying something to use in another dish.  3 needed to be on a rocket stove (which I hit exactly) and 6 in cast iron (I did 9).  I used the Wheaton Labs rocket stove for the three.

1.  Ground beef on a rocket

2.  Onions and garlic on a rocket

3.  Turnip and butternut squash on a rocket

4.  Scromlettes (sweet potato, onions, brussel sprouts, 3 eggs, turmeric, black pepper, chipotle, salt)  "final" picture taken after the veggies were fried and before the eggs added

5.  Corny wheat pancakes (1/2c whole wheat, 1/6c cornmeal, 2T buttermilk powder, 1t sugar, 2/3t baking powder, 1/4t baking soda, 1/4t salt, 1 small egg, 1/10c oil, blueberries, water till the right consistency)

6.  Fried egg - sorry, no picture of preparation since it was just cracking it into the pan

7.  Bacon - same deal as above, prep was just cutting them in half and putting them in the pan

8.  Hashbrowns - same deal as above, prep was just grating the taters and putting them in the pan

9.  French fries

10.  Sweet potato fries

11.  Fried potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner

12.  Fried butternut squash
