I know that's awful, Gretchen, but while the spirit is willing, the flesh is weak. I had to do something really easy today...my husband and I are both stove-up.
I cut the loins into serving size, put in crock-pot, seasoned them with dry Italian dressing mix, poured a can of crushed tomatoes over the top, and topped with a little sliced onion. As soon as they're tender, I'll turn off the heat.
A friend came over for supper, and she's going to make her green bean casserole and fix mashed potatoes. After she got here, she said she could have seared the meat for me...next time, we'll do that.
We get by with a little help from our friends
