And if I can ever figure out how to post messages, maybe I will learn how to cook. Stupid me.

Luvabigdog, I thought that was the case, but I needed to make sure. I really like having fun with people, especially young ones like my own sons! My dogs didn't want me to mess up with another dog lover!!!

Your roast sounds perfect and the ideaof the veggies on the bottom with some onion is the best idea!

Cooking should be fun, soon you will be playing with your food like a pro!

Thanks Chopper. I'm feeling all squishy inside. Must be a guy thing!! Just for clarification, that is my attempt at a joke!! I always go for the laugh and sometimes humor does not translate well. I spoke Italian and Russian before speaking English. My wife is Russian and speaks Russian and Italian then English. When we are together with other couples, we speak English to one another so everyone understands. Since it is not native to either of us, we usually say things that are misunderstood and don't make good sense.

I learned to write and read English all through school but didn't really start to speak English until I was about 15. "Lost in translation" is a common phrase around here.

Ok....the roast is in the crock pot, lightly seared first in a pan, vegetables on the bottom, fatty side up, sprinkled with worstischire and 1/2 cup of water on the bottom. Slits in the roast with smashed garlic. The instructions with the crock pot said that if I open the lid that it will take 20 minutes to regain the temperature.....so it will stay closed. We plan to eat around 7 p.m. this evening or around 7 hours after the meat started cooking. Wish me luck.

It sounds like you have everything under control.

Thank you PrincessFiona and what a beautiful child you have!!! We love children and they are around here a lot because of the horses and it is a safe haven after school lets out and until their parents can pick them up after work. My wife will make a wonderful mother some day.

Playing with my food? Of course!!! I played professional sports and during team sponsored meals, we would always conclude with a food fight when it was only players and coaches and not wives or girlfriends. Some men never grow up. Me included. I realize that it probably a cardinal sin here and I grew up with humble beginnings so we never wasted anything. If my mother saw that she would beat the crap out of all the guys without hesitation.

That is actually a picture of me...a very long time ago. I still look like that when I eat. And by "playing with your food," I did mean you would be inventive on your own...not a food fight, although a food fight could be fun.

I can almost smell it cooking. I just made a crock pot roast a couple nights ago, maybe I actually can still smell it, lol.

I went to give a riding lesson and when arrived back in the house can smell the roast and it is wonderful!!! What an awesome felling of accomplishment!!

PrincessFiona. It is my opinion that beautiful children grow up to be beautiful adults. Using my keen sense of deductive reasoning, and my romantic Italian gene, I will deduce that you are a beautiful woman. And yes, playing with food can be fun. But it depends on how you define the word "play". And that is all I will say on that topic.....before I get kicked out of here. If you are thinking dirty thoughts then get your mind out of the gutter and back into the kitchen!!!

Time for another lesson.

I'm sure it will taste fantastic!

Just to clarify, get a good dark brown crust on your meat before it goes in the crockpot.
