Usually I will get up early and put a roast with all the vegatables in the roaster and by the time we leave for S.S. it is normally ready but if not I turn down the oven very low and it will finish, although, I do not like to ever leave my home with the oven on but I do at times and sure hope that i will never wish I had not done so. Then alot of times I will put on something in the crock pot late Saturday night.

I am alone at home so I dont always tend to cook a meal. usually my breakfast and lunch are my bigger meals. I find because I have to be picked up by 430 or 5:00 by the church van I sometimes only have a can of ensure or I will throw soy milk, berry mix, protein powder, ground flax, maple syrup and sometimes berry flavoured tofu into the blender and have that for my meal. Other times I may throw a sweet potato in the microwave and open butternut squash soup for my supper. or maybe at other times just a salad.

Reading thru all of this I could not help but think about those Sunday dinners I grew up having after church, wow, they were good.

I always love it when our pastor would eat with us, those were some real good dinners. Usually on those days we had fried chicken, it was surely good, home grown of course.

I'm not much of a breakfast person in the early morning, on Sunday morning we have a biscuit and sausage.

We use to go to a place that would serve breakfast anytime, but they shut down, I love a breakfast of scramble eggs, bacon or sausage and toast, or even pancakes, but not early morning, it would be alright to me to have such a breakfast at dinner and supper both, but not in the early morning!

Now we usually come home for dinner, sometimes we have breakfast sometimes and or something that was cooked on Saturday evening.

Well...

when I am at home....we walk in the door. I get the electric skilet going...then I get dressed for cooking while it's heating up. Then I peel about 7 potatoes...cut them up then I put them to boiling. Then I get the chicken out that I had in the fridge thawing all night. Then I start frying it while the potatoes are cooking. Then I get a jar of green beans from the pantry that we canned. And cut up some veggies from the garden. And then complete the meal about 1 pm.

We used to go out to eat just about every Sunday to give me a day off. We don't do that much anymore now that I'm not working. So we have gone back to what we both grew up on. Pasta dinner with the works. Homemade sauce, Italian bread(sometimes garlic), nice salad, and of course your choice of pasta. My favorite is frozen cheese ravioli, Matt's is plain ol ziti.

We do a variety of things - use the crockpot a lot in the summer, and the oven a lot in the winter. On the fourth of July, we put a roast on the grill after we were done cooking our hamburgers (we like to use up all the charcoal, so none goes to waste). I froze it and saved it for the next Sunday - made the best roast beef sandwiches!!! Mmmmmm! Tender and juicy - and quick! We don't live very far from church, but my hubby works nights; he's ready to eat as soon as we get home so he can get to bed, so I try to have quick meals.

Lately, my wife has been making "crockpot-chicken w/mushroom sauce" before we leave for church, although this last Sunday it was beef tips in the same sauce-recipe.

I have to say that there is something to do with her kitchen-technique that makes her preparations simply outtttta this world. :hungry: :drool :java: Yea verily, I have been curious for years so this time I thought I'd help in the kitchen. She didn't know it but I was "mentally" sitting right on her shoulder watching her every move. We could say that I was "going to school" on her. :lol::eye::eye: :ears: :ears: :ears: :ears:

Here are my findings::::::::: :clap::clap::clap::clap:

#1. When she browns/sears the (thawed) beef-cubes in a large skillet (prior to putting them into the crockpot) she will add "too much" water at first, and simmer them for about 8 to 10 minutes, and then pour most of that liquid into the crockpot.

#2. She'll put the skillet-full of beef-cubes back onto the burner and continue browning until that is done.

#3. She empties the skillet of browned beef-cubes into the crock-pot and then with a sharp stainless-steel spatula she'll scrape the skillet clean of all the "brownings" and pours that into the crockpot, as well.

***Apparently all of these juices and broth-gleanings from the meat greatly enhance her gravy/sauce in the crock-pot and make it so good and savory. :lol

After we come from church she makes a pot of wide-noodles and a green veggie, typically steamed green peas or broccoli florets.

I simply must tell you that kings and queens and pharoahs of Ancient Egypt didn't have culinary arts as fine as what my sweet wife puts together. :Green :thumb :clap: :clap:

You sound just like our (32 year old ) daughter---> she puts together some of the finest baked confections on earth, but her cooking still could use some practice. :Green

Must be the age, I'm 33. Did moms just like to cook so much in the 80's that they left the baking to their girls?
