Lazy Day #2

Quote of the day:
“Leave something in the crockpot for 10 hours with barbeque sauce and good things are bound to happen”.  — Royce

We have had another great lazy day.  Started off with a dog walk and I haven’t gotten off the couch for a couple of hours…been watching basketball with naps on the side.  A rough day I know.  We did venture out to see a movie.  The Namesake was good…true to the book, but it moved slow (which makes a good book, but not such a good movie).  I really wanted them to focus more on the conflicts between first generation vs. second generation immigrants, but they focused on the name thing a bit more, which I found to be a minor issue in the book.  Definitely worth renting, probably wish I would have saved my $9.00 matinee movie admission for something that really requires a ‘big screen’ premiere.

After the movie we went to the store to by a bird feeder.  So far no birds have visited our cafe, but I anticipate some to locate it soon.  We have a great tree branch that extends out in front of the kitchen window.  I’m looking forward to hanging at least one more feeder out there for the birdies.

I better get back to my basketball watching.  Going to work tomorrow sure is going to put a damper on my laziness.

What’s for dinner:  Tonights dinner, as the above quote references, is shredded BBQ beef sandwiches.  Royce put it in the crockpot this AM at seven and it’s smells wonderful.  We plan on serving it with some coleslaw we made using our recipe from The New Cookbook (which surprisingly only uses 1/2 cup mayo…for 4 cups of cabbage…and I thought coleslaw was bad for you!)  and some baked French fries.

Shredded BBQ Beef (recipe courtesy of Best Loved Slow Cooker Recipes a pretty darn good cookbook we got on sale rack one day).

3 lb boneless chuck
BBQ Sauce:
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbs. Dijon mustard
2 tbs. worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Place meat in crock pot, cover with sauce, cook on low for 10 hours or high for 5 hours.  Shred.  Eat.
