Welcome, and i'm going to help you get your cooking mojo back. We'll start with easy, delicious, and lots for friends to share.

Purchase one boston Butt (about 4 to 5 lb. roast). Fire up your heaviest frying pan, preferable cast iron, over medium high heat. When the dry pan in hot, add a couple tbs. of cooking oil. Salt the roast on all sides and place it in the hot pan. Let it spit and sizzle for about 5 minutes, and turn it. Repeat until all sides a well browned.

While the butt is browning, peel and dice cut one large onion into chunks. Lay them all over the bottom of a slow cooker. Add 4 cloves of peeled and chopped garlic. Place the roast on top of the onion and garlic. Cover and cook on the medium setting overnight, and while you're in school.

When evening arrives, pull the roast into chunks with two forks. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with some good Carolina BBQ sauce, and good, crusty buns. Don't forget to pick up some slaw at the grocers. Invite your study buddies and gals, or enjoy with family, or all of the above.

Now your on the road back to cooking, without a ton of effort or complication.

Other easy recipes that can be made with little effort:

Pea Soup
Boiled Dinner
Slow Cooker Tamale Pie
gourmet burgers
chops (cook up some lamb chops with smashed, sweet spuds and a touch of maple syrup)
Pork Chops
Shredded Beef for tacos, enchiladas, burritos, etc.

Yeah, this is definitely the friendliest site I've ever ... well, I don't really "belong" to other forums ... this one fills all my needs, food and not, taking me through pet crises, family crises, in addition to helping with food and allowing me to help others through all of the above.
