The Lazy Writer’s Guide to Lazy Dinner
Despite popular belief, I’m actually not as domestic as I appear from random Facebook posts. I’m the queen of the microwave and I’m about as un-domestic (when it comes to cleaning etc…) as they come.
I clean when absolutely necessary (i.e. company is coming), though I am a stickler about floors, sinks and toilets. Everything else is optional. It takes absolute boredom to make me fold clothes or organize my office. I just don’t have enough hours in my day to keep up with this stuff. Seriously.
So today’s post is the Lazy Writer’s Guide to Lazy Dinner. Well, perhaps lazy is the wrong term. It’s just that I have more interesting things to spend my time on rather than domestic chores and that includes dinner.
Today’s recipe is Lazy Pot Roast.
- Get a beef roast.
- Stick it in a crockpot.
- Add one packet of McCormick Slow Cooker Pot Roast spices (you can use beef stew mix)
- Add one chopped onion.
- Add two chopped ribs of celery.
- Add two cups of those little carrots (washed of course).
- Add two cups of small red potatoes (more if you want — eyeball it)
- Add a cup or two of water. Eyeball that, too. I usually do about two cups.
You can prepare it the night before and put it in the fridge. Then the next morning (before 9’ish), plug that sucker in and put it on low. Let it cook all day. By the time 6pm rolls around – you’ve got a delicious dinner and you barely had to do anything. Even an un-domestic bachelor can do it! If you want firmer potatoes, add the potatoes two hours before you’re going to eat.
There you are — wasn’t that easy? It was delicious, too, I hope!
