has made me hungry, so I'm going to make a post about food. First of all, I did indeed get together with my aunt and uncle this weekend. Down in the 'ham, we dined like royalty at the fish market. I had grilled shrimp, rainbow trout that was to die for, amberjack, fried pickles and a baked potato. Only the shrimp and the trout were devoured there at the establishment; the rest I took home to make everyone jealous at work on Monday when it came lunchtime; alas, that wasn't to be in the cards: I didn't have the opportunity to take lunch either Monday or Tuesday. I did, however, enjoy the rest of my Sunday dinner Monday night.
While I was in the 'ham, my uncle gave me a stern talking to and told me I was full of shit. He taught (taught is strong, rather he drove home) how to brainstorm, how to organize one's thoughts and how to turn dreams into goals and then work towards them. I had to stop typing this post for an hour's brainstorming session earlier.
Back to the topic of food, I don't know why but I got a real hankerin' for roast beef this afternoon at work, so I went to Cracker Barrel for dinner. While I was there, I started thinking about how I could throw something in the crock pot for dinner the next evening and let whatever cook all night and all day on low. That way, when I got home from work, I'd have a meal ready to eat, I wouldn't have to go anywhere and I could take the leftovers in to work the next day for lunch. Furthermore, I might even get the place smelling good if I cooked some good meals. Mostly, I'm tired of eating out.
While I'm no follower of Rachel Ray, I think I might give this a go. So if any of you good kind heated folks have any crock pot recipes you want to bestow upon me, feel free to leave me a comment. Bonus points go out for picking a vegetable or two to go with it. I'm a meat and potatoes kind of guy, so this shouldn't be too difficult. Maybe some day soon, I'll move to a better apartment where I won't be afraid to leave personal effects out on the porch. When that day comes, I'll buy a grill and then I could grill fish to boot!
for me to hang in my kitchen and look at while I'm cooking will get a finder's fee upon delivery of the goods.
