But no lazy day is complete without some good food to accompany it. And since I torture Hank with mostly vegetarian meals, I decided to treat him to a yummy roast beef sandwich. I only grabbed enough meat and cheese from the deli for two sandwiches, and made a delicious horseradish sauce with ingredients I had in the fridge. The end result was this:
|Nothing makes a sandwich better than toasting it under the broiler. Just look at that cheese!!|
|And of course, nothing says "football snack" like a little side of chips and queso!|
For the second week is a row, my fantasy football team pulled off a come-from-behind win, and I'm sitting pretty in 2nd place for now. It's shocking considering both of my running backs can't seem to produce to save their lives. There's a long season ahead, so I'm trying not to get too cocky right out of the gate.
To counter our indulgent lunch, Hank put together a yummy (vegetarian) crockpot stew with all kinds-of good fall vegetables. I made some cornmeal dumplings to put into it, and we had a nice healthy dinner to end the day. I don't know if I've ever made dumplings before, but I would do them a little differently based on how these turned out. I don't think they had enough liquid, and I don't think they take as long to cook as the recipe said. But if you're looking for an easy crockpot meal, give this Vegetable Stew with Cornmeal Dumplings a try. (And splurge for the already cut-up butternut squash- it makes life so much easier!)
|It doesn't get much easier than throwing a bunch of things in the crockpot, and letting it do all the work for you!|
