It’s chilly enough out these days that I felt the need to get out the crock pot for tonight’s dinner:
I still needed to use the stew meat I was going to make the Beef Paprika with, and yesterday I decided that beef stew sounded good. When my parents would make it, they’d always add in a can of tomato sauce, which I never cared for. I just used beef, potatoes, corn, and some garlic. It turned out decently enough.
And there are leftovers for Jay & I to take for lunch. After dinner, I had to pop out to the store to get some ibuprofen for Jay. I cracked up a bit at one point, when I heard the beginning notes of Depeche Mode’s “Get the Balance Right.” When we were there yesterday morning, the bambino & I were getting down with our bad selves to Culture Club’s “Miss Me Blind.” For someone who listens to cornball music himself, Jay made more fun of us than was really necessary.
I also needed some Gatorade:
I’ll give them a shot for snacks this week. Hy-Vee was still out of my Fage though. I’m going to be pathetic and check every day until it’s back in stock! And on that note, I’m off to bed.
