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.
