There was one place for lunch on Tuesday at a church. Now, there are three churches that have lunch on Tuesday.
Tuesday, exbf and I went to one of the new ones. Lunch was boneless, skinless chicken breasts/chicken fingers, one or the other, with dry mushroom soup mix sprinkled over them. Green beans and whole kernel corn and a thin slice of buttered bread completed the plate. Neither the beans or the corn was over-salted or over-seasoned. There was a choice of sweetened or unsweetened tea or water. Dessert was cookies, or peanut butter fudge or pound cake in a sandwich bag. Altogether, it was a great lunch.
There weren't many people there because some people took a to-go plate. Well, some got ten to-go plates. I asked if we could each have a plate to-go and got one apiece. Those ended up being dinner.
For dinner I put about a dozen potatoes in the crockpot, on high, one layer. On top I put yellow squash and zucchini. After two hours it seemed barely warm. What happened? Consequently, dinner was a replay of lunch. He did not mind at all.
He took home half-cooked food--three potatoes, four squash, one zucchini. They seemed very hot, just not done. What happened? I put a cup of water, two Tbsp. of olive oil and a clove of garlic, diced. Tomatoes and blueberries were price-matched.
Maybe the density of the potatoes needed more time. I don't know. Do you? An hour later, they were done!
Do you have a clue as to why the potatoes did not cook in two hours? Why did the zucchini and squash not cook in an hour? I only opened the crockpot once just long enough to throw in the squash and zucchini! Did I have too much in the crockpot?
