I'm trying a Rhee Drummond recipe for shredded chuck roast made with pepperocini. I'm using my crockpot. We'll eat the beef on crusty italian bread with provolone. Marinated cucumbers and tomato salad on he side. I picked up the first pumpkin pie of the season and some whipped cream. That should work nicely and with very little fuss on my part.

No, at least my mittens are dry!

When I was a kid we had Sunbeam white bread and ice cold butter that would tear a hole clean through it!

Strawberry pretzel pie from the other night's United Way take and bake. It's surprisingly good. A bottom layer of crushed pretzels and walnuts, another layer of cream cheese/whipped cream, and a top layer of cooked strawberries. I would post a pic, but frankly it looks like a crime scene.

lol, Dawg. Crime scene or not, that does sound yummy. I'm trying to keep away from the dozen Krispy Kreme donuts I bought yesterday for a school fundraiser. I'll have maybe two, then give the rest to my daughter and her family.
Would have much rather seen something other than donuts for a fundraiser, though....

I have the same problem with fundraisers, now I just give the kids a donation and make a run for it!

It's kind of like a braise, but he calls it a "slow fry". All I know is the chicken comes out soft and flavorful and the oil infused with all of that stuff along with some chicken fat is amazing! I'll fish out some roasted garlic cloves and put them in some mashed potatoes. Serve this with homemade baguette.

For dessert, pecan pie. This pie is Rob's reward for putting up with multiple apple desserts over the past few weeks. He hated apple anything until he met me, and now he kind of likes it.
That sounds fabulous.
I did a homemade pizza and strawberry shortcake. Still waiting to see if hubby even acknowledges the day.

My tastebuds couldn't be happier right now.
Thanks for the recipe, Harry.

That looks delish, Pac! Good job!

My sweetie wanted liver and onions...he got liver and onions, garlic butter broasted potatoes and a chocolate bar.

Now I have to go finish cooking up the liver...for snacks later in the week.
