By the time I got home from shopping, I had run out of energy, so DH made supper. I sous chefed and chopped onions, garlic, and peppers (I'm much better at that than he is and I didn't have to think.)

DH made a dish inspired by a Philly cheese sub. It's fried ground beef, onions, garlic, and hot peppers and then covered in mozzarella.

We had some leftover salad and added some snow peas to it.

Tested out my new (bargain) computer crock-pot today. We had red wine-tomato roast beef, mashed potatoes, lima beans, and iced tea. Banana bundt cake for dessert.

Gotta say, the crock-pot exceeded my expectations. I'm a VERY happy camper.

I breaded a couple chicken breasts that were cut into strips. Baked those in the oven while I fried up some perogies with onions to have as a side dish.

If you made all that in the new crock pot then I would think you would be a very very VERY happy camper...

I would not survive some days without mine, especially when I don't know what time Mark is getting home. I made sloppy joes in mine last night and kept it on low. It turned out great!

Okay, Smarty Pants. It's a case of "I shot an elephant in my pajamas." Yeah, why was the elephant in my pajamas?

Then, I'd have to say the iced tea was the most challenging part, but these new computerized crock-pots are cooking wonders.
