Crock Pot Sundays

mmm..that looks good, and the pot roast doesn't look half bad either
I love to cook. Whether its firing up the grill and throwing on a nice steak, or challenging myself with a difficult recipe. I just love cooking, and I think I'm pretty good at it. However, when football season rolls around, you got to keep it simple. I can't keep running outside checking to see how the meat is cooking on the grill. I can't add this ingredient after a half hour, and saute this ingredient after 2 hours. No, I need simple preparation, dump it in the crock pot and forget about it. Over the past 4 weeks we have enjoyed a brisket from some hot chick, chicken and dumplings twice (they were so good), and today's pot roast.
Here are my directions for crock-pot cooking:
Step 1
Put ingredients into crock pot (approximate prep time 10-15 minutes) - grab a beer and watch Terry, Howie, and Jimmy talk about today's games. Ignore Strahan. Admire Jillian. Drink more.

Step 2

Enjoy the aroma coming from your kitchen, but relax you don't have to do anything for the next 5-6 hours, except watch football. Enjoy as many beers as you can during this time.

We're gonna need a bigger boat

Step 3

Fill your plate with the delicious treat you have created. Around this time your "comfort food" will start ruining your beer buzz, this is OK. If your favorite team has already played, then you can take a nap during 60 minutes, you need the rest.

Step 4

This move depends on whether your team won or not. If they lost your probably done for the day, if they won, you get your second wind. You tune into the Sunday night game, or if that sucks, you put on Smokey and the Bandit, and have a couple more beers.

Step 5

You're at the water cooler on Monday morning, and you share the gas with your coworkers that you acquired by eating 5 bowls of pot roast and drinking lots of beers. are proud!

Go Rays!

Cheers and Hail
