Sunday Meal..nom nom!

FullSizeRender (800x600)

Sunday is my "fun day," especially during autumn and winter. I have no dietary restrictions on this day, and it's the day on which our professional football games are played from morning to night. American football is my favorite sport, and I watch it religiously. Almost always, I prepare a delicious meal the evening before, put it in the slow cooker, and then awake on Sunday morning and plug it in. Today, a nice cut of beef (London broil), covered in a red wine sauce, mushrooms, fresh potatoes and carrots, with onions layered on the bottom. It will cook for seven hours, and be ready to eat around 7pm. Yes, American women can cook! Don't believe the stereotypes. ;) Who wants to join me for dinner? Look tasty? :)

Cooking in a slow cooker doesn't consider as a real cooking. You just put everything in and pressed the button.

What? It isn't true. :) You still have to sear the meat first in a pan, mix and add spices to rub on the meat, peel and cut the vegetables, prepare the sauce. It is cooking. :)

It looks incredibly delicious! I finish my lunch now (not a vegetarian dinner I must say), but I would have eaten the steak with a big appetite)

I hope it's delicious. This is the first time I tried this recipe. Next weekend, we will go apple picking. I will write a post about a good apple dessert I prepare with the apples. :)

I made a German chocolate cake for breakfast (it was mix from a box, so not "real cooking"). Wanna do a potluck?

Im surprised, how good the meat looks, despite the slow cooker (hello there, NSA, who's monitoring system I just triggered :). Im kinda grill person, which didnt stop me from baking salmon last night, though :)

And I only had coffee and silly breakfast sammich from Wawa this morning, on my way to the Pope's detail :(

Wawa has such a huge selection of prepared foods and most have full delis! We only have a few in our area. Sheetz is more popular. Did you get to see the Pope, or were the crowds too large?

How much and what kind of alcohol do you drink while watching football?
In Russia we drank 2 shots for every score. Unfortunately if score was to high you wasn't able to reach the end of the game.

I don't drink alcohol very often, only a few times a year. But all my friends and relatives usually drink beer while watching football games. I think it's the most common alcoholic beverage consumed at bars and at home while watching the games.

Yes, it looks tasty :)))
I also cooked today - one dish is of Polish origin (with pieces of beef's stomach - tripe? chitterling? - I have the receipt in my LJ) and in evening I cooked apples in dough:

Beef stomach!?! I didn't know people eat this body part of a cow. Anything in dough is delicious! :))

Bon appetit!!
Russians don't like american football, but like soccer and we don't know "slow cooker"l, but we know well "rapid cooker" (skorovarka). We are so different )

Re: Bon appetit!!
I took my Russian friend to a football game when he was here and he liked it! :) We call it a "slow cooker" or "crock pot." Most dishes you cook for 6 - 8 hours and it makes the meat more tender. Very delicious!

I prefer only fresh beef steak - just marinate in olive oil + herbs and pepper (or mustard) and quick fry in hot frying-pan for approx 3 minute each side. Plus only fresh vegetables salad (+olive oil and white ground pepper).

And red dry wine :)

Slow cooked in low temp (60-70`C) meat good too, but I prefer steak at weekend :)

p.s. nom-nom - is it russian "ням-ням" (njam-njam)? :)

Nom Nom - this is a phrase for when you're eating delicious foods or meals. :) I don't know the Russian word for this.

My wife is a vegetarian so she cooks meats without passion :)

Never heard about slow cooker before.
Of course you can reach the same effect in a traditional oven and cast-iron cookware but here it is more controlled.

Here the latest fashion is computerized multicookers originated from Japan or China.

BTW about mushrooms.

Most commercially available mushrooms today are Agaricus mushrooms ("шампиньон" in Russian) and their taste is quite dull.

en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Agaricus_bisporus

Mushrooms grown in forests sometimes are much tastier.
Today we ate potatoes with White mushrooms as they are called in Russian ("белый гриб").
It is the king or mushrooms in Russia.
Wikipedia says that in Italy these mushrooms are called porcini.

I do not understand American football.
For me it looks more like a brutal fight than a game.
peacetraveler22
Sep. 27th, 2015 11:45 pm (UTC)
It's a brutal game, even though they wear helmets and pads. Many players suffer permanent brain damage due to so many concussions, so now they've created stricter game rules to make them sit out longer after such injuries.
