Wah! I am feeling sick. I know I had a cold coming on a few weeks back, but I amped up the Zicam and held it off. I think the cold was just dormant and is rearing its ugly head. Luckily, I have a wonderful husband who made me some drinks to stay hydrated and heated up some soup for my sore throat. Thank you! Now, after this, I will proceed to be extremely lazy, lay in my comfy bed and watch the television. But, I know I am not the only one that is lazy – it happens to the best of us. Here are a few ways to be lazy.
Beef Pepperoncini Hoagies! Looks kind of fancy and tasty right? Well what you need is pictured below.
Well, that is about all you need. Just take a roast, make sure it is trimmed well of all fat. Place it in your crockpot before going to work, dump in a large jar of pepperoncini’s (juice and all), turn on the crock pot and leave. When you come home, dinner is nearly ready. That is seriously all you need for a super tender, juicy sandwich.
This is what a large platter looked like after easily shredding the beef and removing the pepperoncinis. Fear not, if you are not a fan of hot food. These peppers are mild and after baking all day, they have no bite. In fact, I would recommend placing a few fresh ones on your sandwich for a little more zing. The peppers made these beef so super tender though. It was great and so easy.
Take a fresh roll (I bought these at WalMart and they were really good – check out the football shaped buns if you go there), top it with the beef and peppers and your choice of cheese: provolone, pepper jack, mozzarella, Swiss, etc. and pop it under the broiler just to melt the cheese.
Nice and melty! Serve open faced or smash this baby together. This would be great on my pretend restaurant’s menu.
Serve with fresh peppers, grilled onions or a spicy mayo. We thought any of these would be great additions to this sandwich.
And now: a guide to a lazy person’s dessert. Please follow closely.
Purchase a tub of cookie dough from the hockey boosters fundraiser. Scoop out 12 cookies, but on a sheet and bake. Yes, even though I prefer homemade, things like this tend to happen when you are lazy! Or need a quick snack. I mean, it might taste good if you just ate it out of the tub. Not that I did that or anything.
And now, for some entertainment, how to be a lazy animal.
I noticed this strange shaped lump under my kitchen table’s tablecloth the other day. Hmmm, what could that be ?
Sure enough! A cat. A lazy cat who is too lazy to play with toys! (But she is kind of cute peeking out under the tablecloth!)
You can’t get mad at that face? Right?
Now go on and enjoy your lazy day. I am. And hope for a speedy recovery!
