So, imagine you made Beef and Stuff* and the smell was percolating through the house....
What dessert would you choose to go with it?
Oatmeal chocolate raisin cookies?
Whatever you pick, don't start thinking how you've been trying to perfect that english toffee recipe (because there are only eight weeks until Christmas!) and decide to whip off a batch.
The kitchen smelled like candied cabbage.
And later, when B got home and saw what was on the table, he was shame-faced, picking at his food and finally admitting he'd had chili for lunch.
Yes, I slept on the couch. He and the cats reveled in his umm...glory? and had a musical night.
*Well, what else would you call it??
Pot Roast, two big cloves of garlic, four smallish potatoes, one big onion, shnook of butter, a strip of bacon in the bottom, half bag of baby carrots, two big handfuls of mushrooms, toss in crockpot, simmer all day, add half head of cabbage last hour (when the crock's down low)
