I hope this thread can inspire us.
At least there is a lot of good ethnic food in our neighborhood that's walking distance.
Tomorrow I VOW to get something in the crock pot nice and early. Maybe beef brisket or pork shoulder. But today it was delicious delicious Japanese food from around the corner. mmm, Hamachi nigiri.
A new recipe I made the other day was so easy. I threw a frozen roast into the crock with a jar of salsa and left it about 12 hrs on low. I had to add about a cup of water in the morning and then let it cook a bit more. When it fell apart, I made rice. Easy and I did it with a sleepy 5 m old on my shoulder right before bed.I bet it would be good w bbq sauce on rolls or buns too....
Tonight, tostados. I was going to do sloppy Joe's, but we were supposed to have impromptu (for me, 2 days notice...it takes m me a week to be spontaneous) company over but the man got called in to work. I was going to grill hotdogs for them.... Maybe tomorrow or better yet, Monday when it won't be windy....
I also finally got a big thing of strawberries cut up, part went into a strawberry rhubarb pie with crumb topping that was on allrecipes.com and the rest are in sugar waiting for the angel cake and whipped cream I got for the company that didn't come....
In other food news, yesterday my Dr told me that I need to start getting 4000 calories a day. dayI think I average about 1500 by my best guess.... I'm really not supposed to eat gluten.... I'm going to die.
