{November 18, 2019}   The Really You–Season 1–Game 2

As I have not been on in a few days I had a little catching up to do. Glad they were only on 2.

So here goes my answers for Season 1-Game 2 of The Really You

Do you hoard clutter or constantly de-clutter?

I am a middle of the road kind of person. I hoard but not on purpose. I get things to do things with and then get busy and don’t get to them. Or I lay things like kids school work on my dresser so I can look at it later and it is now over taken my dresser.

But it isn’t like paths through my house, can’t cook or sleep in the beds or rats and things kind of hoarding. And I every so often do go through and toss everything or donate it. I just have to get in the mood and have time. I work so much and try to spend free time with the kids I hardly have a minute other wise. But it starts to bug me and I start tossing. That’s the best time because I will just toss or donate not think about well maybe or move it out of the way to somewhere else. I also go through at least once a year and go through every dresser, closet,cabinet,trunk,Ben, or anything else that could have something put into it and clean out all the out of sight out of mind junk that gets forgotten about.

Do you enjoy cooking – if so what is your ‘special dish’  and if not ‘what is the dish you wish you could create?

I like to cook when I have time and people are not underfoot. I don’t like to be rushed, I like to know that if it takes an hour or two that is okay. One thing I really like to make is Oven Fried Pork Chops with cooked apples and green-beans. I will make two kinds of the Oven Fried Pork Chops. The apples are good but haven’t been able to get them to turn out just how I want them. I need to sit down and look as some recipes, I just haven’t had time. It isn’t something I make often.

What are we likely to find in your condiment cupboard?

Adobo, Worcestershire sauce, Garlic powder, minced onions, oregano, Montreal steak seasoning, Bay leaf, thyme, cinnamon, sea salt maybe a few others. Marinades I picked up to try and some things my oldest picked up to use when she is cooking, She is always wanting to cook and try new things. My main go to are Adobo, Steak seasoning and Worcestershire. You can use one of the three on just about anything and everything.

I was sitting on the bed getting everyone ready to go so I could pick my check up. This song came on.

My 4 yr old little guy is there I am helping him get ready. This is the conversation that took place. I found it comical and cute.

Me to little guy– What if your wife don’t know how to cook? What are you going to do?

little guy– Maybe she just needs the ingredients, I will give her the ingredients.

Me–what if she don’t know what to do with them?

little guy– I do you put them in the pan and mix them all together. I will show her.

Me–What is she just won’t cook or don’t want to cook?

little guy–Oh that’s easy I will just beg her

Me—lmbo what if she still won’t cook?

little guy–I will beg her then just do it myself.



{August 12, 2013}   The Best Pot Roast….EVER!
You’ll need:
McCormicks slower cooker Savory Pot Roast season packet
An Au Jus packet
A Can of Pepsi (we use Coke because we always have coke in our house)
And Boneless Cross Rib Roast ( made this with a regular beef roast and it was great)

and your crock pot

 

Put your Roast in the crock pot.
Mix the Slow cooker seasoning with 1 cup of Water.
Pour on top of roast.
      Add the whole can of Coke.
Cover with your lid for 8 Low or 4 hours on high.
Its VERY important that you never lift the lid!
Right before you are ready to pull it out,
sprinkle your dry Au Jus packet over the roast.
I pour some of the mix already in the pot over it to mix it all up then took the roast out and sliced it up. Put sauce from pot in little bowl use for dipping.
I also cut up some red potatoes into chunks got the little baby carrots mixed them together in a pot on the stove. Take one cup of the sauce out of the crock pot and pour over potatoes and carrots then drop a stick of butter on top. Cover and let cook until butter is melted and everything is tender.
