Sundays are meant to be enjoyed.
How you enjoy them are completely on you.
I tend to spend mine doing the things I do best.
A low key workout… Catching up with my dvr… Reading…
And consuming every single cookie in my sight.
After making another giant cookie for just myself, like I did last week, my friend Annie called to see if I wanted to go out and grab something of a sugar-infested nature.
Never say no to dessert.
No really, I mean it.
That philosophy is also one of the reasons I spend so much time at the gym. But whatev.
Another philosophy of mine is to spend as little time in the kitchen on a Sunday as possible.
Enter more crock pot greatness.Funny how I just said I never eat steak and here it’s making a second appearance in less than a week.Straight from the farm. It’s how I like my beef but not my boys.
The cookbook was broken open once again- we used a steak dumpling recipe as a guideline for our own concoction.Minus the celery, of course. Because no one actually likes it. Fact. We also switched out the “dumpling” part for noodles. Because noodles look fun. We had them on hand. And the point is to be lazy. They won out by a landslide.
While I was out getting coffee and cookies, this bad boy did work. And I came home just in time for this:From what I’ve experienced, 4 hours seems to be the magic time for potatoes and onions to cook to perfection.
And yet again, a successful meal that required little more than throwing together a bunch of things from the refrigerator/pantry. A successful meal to be enjoyed while watching 4 football teams you could care less about.
Yeah. I said it. My focus has already switched to basketball. Go Bulls.
Happy Monday everyone! I’m especially happy because the snow is slowly disappearing and the temperatures don’t make me hate life. That single digit crap was really working my last nerve. As was seeing all the yellow snow in my dog friendly neighborhood.
Is it Spring yet?
