What a crock

I was grocery shopping today.  I thought to myself, “I’m going to attempt something of a culinary feat.… I am going to cook a meal.”  I thought more, “other than American chop suey.”

So quick-as-a-jiffy I whipped out my iPhone and Googled “how to make beef stew in a Crock pot.”  Figuring it pretty much cooks itself in there anyway.

Recipes danced across the page.  I hit on the “easy” one.  I gathered up all the ingredients until I got to the beef part.  I headed over to the butcher who asked if he could help me.

“Yes, I need some beef for beef stew.”

“Thats over in the beef section on the right.”

Rather embarrassed, I leaned in and told him, “my mom was a bit of a domestic genius, she could could sew, quilt, bake, and cook like no one’s business.  It seems though, that gene passed me over.”

I paused, “ But I have other skills.” and then I winked at him.

He stared back at me blankly.  Then he fetched some Choice top round beef,  cut it , and packaged it for me.  I got home and realized I probably forgot to buy the most important thing in the recipe,  the crock pot.

Being partnered with the ex-narchole sex addict years ago had one advantage. I ended up with some mad skills.

That said, it’s never too late to learn.  I hope to cook a stew worthy of my mom’s approval.   If they have a Crock pot cook-off in heaven, she would definitely win.

Aerosmith

Met Steve Tyler by chance at Burger King up in NH.  He was with his kids eating dinner.   Circa 1989.   Super nice guy.   He has one of his homes in that town.
