I love to cook . I recently saw a survey that said people now spend more on dining out than at the grocery. It is something I have a hard time getting my head around. I think it is so because I not only love to cook, I love to feed people. To me cooking is part art, and part escape. Definitely an expression of love. When I cook I get to vicariously by making a meal go to other places and make things that I might never get a chance to taste otherwise. Today I had a roast and a busy schedule full of work,so I wanted a recipe that I could crock pot this and turn it into something fun. I went online and sought out a new recipe using the ingredients I have on hand. I found a recipe that I truly wondered how it would turn out, time was running out and because I had everything I went with it. My rule of thumb is the first time on any recipe is by the book, so I did just that. By lunch time I had decided that pie was in order to go with my roast dinner and put together a cherry pie.
Tonight when RangerSir got home he was greeted by the smells of our crock pot roast and his eyes feasted on a cherry pie worthy of Instagram. I put a dinner feast on the table worthy of the love for RangerSir.
