I need a crockpot savior.
I just put something in my crock pot for dinner that appears like it will be disgusting. I’ve never met a crock pot recipe that my family has really liked. This is a tragedy, as I am not really up for two-hour dinner preparation, mostly because I don’t have the ingredients, the time, or the energy to make that kind of meal on a Wednesday.
Who can save my Wednesday dinners?? Deliver me from the evil that is the mid-week meal! For the past several weeks, all we’ve eaten on Wednesdays is Arby’s rotisserie chicken. Now, rotisserie chicken is delicious and all, but I just can’t be “that woman” who drives through Arby’s every Wednesday. So I’m asking for an intervention. Anyone who wants to point me toward their favorite recipe, my family will thank you (or they will tell you it’s disgusting. They are an honest bunch).
In other news:
- The producers of America’s Funniest Home Videos called me last night to say they are putting Desmond on the show, for the now-infamous “It’s for Safety” trumpet video (it involves Desmond dancing, and me getting hit in the face with my own phone). My children’s dreams have literally come true. Air date is tentatively set for December 2nd. I’ll keep you informed.
- I decided this was a good week to talk all about twenty-somethings. I’m over at Relevant talking about Casual Dating. Relevant is a great place to get a lot of traffic and nasty comments. It’s probably because of this statement: “stop evaluating if the new girl at church is hot and ‘low-maintenance’ enough for your liking.” You can head over to read the rest.
- I’m also over at Gifted for Leadership, talking much more professionally about how to help twentysomethings become great leaders.
- I love today’s Becoming Podcast on “Invisible Dynamics.” Come and learn a little bit about why we do what we do in relationships!
Things I’m thinking about:
- I’m realizing, as an adult, that times of uncertainty are more the norm than the exception.
- I’ve been reading through the gospel of Matthew. There’s this part where Peter gets out of a boat to walk out toward Jesus. Across water. At 3AM. In the middle of a storm. And when Peter falters and begins to sink, Jesus says to him “why did you doubt me?” I never noticed the “me” in that statement before. I just thought Peter “doubted.” But I guess when we doubt anything at all, we are really doubting the one who holds all things together.
- I told you this would be random! Fire those crock pot recipes at me. I promise we will try EVERY SINGLE ONE and give you our honest opinion.
