Yum! And Simple/Easy Too!
I know if I show a picture of a to die for EASY TO MAKE dinner, I better share the recipe. Since I am all kinds of wonderful, I will.
Wake up and have a craving for something barbecued. (Okay, flavored.... I don't know how to use the grill.) Go to your freezer and find a big chunk of meat. Throw it in a crockpot. Go and find a recipe and realize you don't have any of the ingredients. Go to Cost-Co and buy red potatoes and carrots. Call your friend on the way home asking if you can have some Dr. Pepper because you don't drink any and don't want to buy a whole six pack of the stuff. You just want one can! Since one of your Native's is at her house playing, ask her to send that Native home and dump in the Dr. Pepper in the crockpot on top of the meat.
Come home and start to mix the barbecue sauce ingredients. Realize that you should have bought more ketchup. Coax what little ketchup you can out of your almost empty container. Jump up and down trying to shake out the last little itty bitty drop. Grab some Worcestershire sauce and realize you've made the same mistake. Add extra bottled barbecue sauce to compensate.
Throw the wet ingredients and veggies on top of the meat in crockpot only to have it fill to over flowing and not fit because every recipe has to be doubled/tripled with all of the Native's that you feed. Go and grab a roaster pan and dump all contents in the crockpot plus the extra sauce in said roaster pan and pop it all into the oven where it sits and cooks for several hours.
See? Very simple!
I just love simple recipes. Makes my life so much easier......... pant pant..........
The real recipe:
6 small red potatoes, cut into quarters
6 med. carrots,cut into 1-inch pieces

1 Cup cola
2 TBL. Worcestershire sauce
Throw it all in a crock pot, cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours. Serves 8
