I missed your edit! That bolognese is positively drool-worthy. There's no beating a well made ragu. One of my favourite dishes actually, which I never make myself - 2 hours minimum cooking time is a little much, and I like to keep my time in the kitchen to a minimum! So you can imagine what I think about your planned crock pot...
As I'm still freelancing and working out of our home, being "Mr. Mom" and handling tasks like dinner has fallen to me. Granted, I have the benefit of having worked in several restaurants, and apprenticing under two 1-star chefs, so I'm not a completely worthless dude in the kitchen.
So, I had enough time to use my morning for dicing onions, carrots and celery (which is long work, to which anyone who has ever worked in a restaurant can attest), and then I simmered the sauce for a few hours. Then, I reduced the sauce even further.
My God, it was incredible.
If you're not going to mail me some by fast courier, you have to stop the descriptions - I skipped dinner tonight and I'm about to eat this here cushion...
Last night was chicken and penne pasta with broccoli and peppers.
Tonight, it was cheese ravioli in basil & garlic tomato sauce, with seasoned green beans on the side.
Shrimp cocktail, New York strip, salad, and thin onion rings.
My last frozen lassenga with some toast.
I made a spicy made from some beef steak, beef gravy, chunky salsa and green onions piled on top of rice.
This makes baby TrekkieMonster cry.
Kidding. I understand what you mean. I know a few people like that. In truth, I wish I were a little less "interested" in food; it might help my waistline.
But, alas, I love food, and I love to cook. Las night was a simple one, though:
Petit filet mignon on the grill, sautéed mushrooms, baked potato and broccoli with a nice glass of red wine (They Hubby was at a work function, so I got to have steak, which he hates.)
Homemade lasagne loaded with veggies, olives and feta.
And homemade corn bread - my first excursion into bread making, and it was a success!!
home made hamburgers, chips with ranch dip and baked beans
Buffalo chicken chunks and made a honey mustard dip...really good.
Lettuce & Tomato Salad
Homemade four-cheese pizza.
homemade Pad Thai with shrimp and cashews.
We had a Home Run Inn cheese pizza, along with some homemade garlic bread. It was delicious (outside of me slicing a chunk out of my thumb while mincing the garlic).
Beef That red curry with rice.
Afterwards, cup of tea and iced donuts.
Four squares if Cadbury Old Gold chocolate
Pork in white wine and garlic, with rice, and salad in creamy Ceasar dressing.
I just threw things together, and it came out surprisingly well.
