Acquire a pound or so of stew meat from your local warehouse-type grocery sore. Slice it into pieces small enough that you won't choke on and massage a little generic seasoning on them. Let it sit in some burgundy from a box and red wine vinaigrette salad dressing overnight. Every few hours or whenever you think of it, pick up the tupperware with the meat and shake it, shake it, shake it like polaroid picture.

Sometime later the next day clean up your pot o'crock and dump in half a bag of sliced carrots, a few chopped up celery stalks, diced red and white onions, and a chopped potato. 4 cups of water and a bag of Knorr soup mix follow. Ignore. 2 hours. Toss the meat in. Watch everything turn purple. Ignore for a couple more hours. Make the egg noodles seperately. I tried to just toss those in with the stew once and they disintegrated into some sort of beef flavored paste. Gross.

Remove about 3 1/2 cups of the juice in the strew. You'll put this in a pot with some flour until you reduce it into gravy.

Serve on top of the noodles and maybe with some of those crescent rolls from a can.

oh my gosh! the date was great! she came over! stayed the night! now it's 10am and... oh no! what's for breakfast?

Morning After French Toast

4 slices of bread
1 egg
1 banana
honey or maple syrup
cinnamon and/or nutmeg

Begin by warming up your Foreman Grill. Slice banana width-wise into 1/4" pieces. When the orange light indicates the grill is hot and ready, mix your egg in a bowl with a splash of milk and whisk together. Add in a dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg.

Assemble a 'sandwich' by placing the banana slices between two pieces of bread. Carefully dip the sandwich into the egg mixture, laying the bread flat in the bowl and allowing the egg to soak in. Flip over and soak opposite side. When entire sandwich is coated in egg, place on Foreman Grill and close the lid. Cook approximately 5 minutes, or until egg is lightly browned and cooked thoroughly.

Slice sandwich diagonally for a nice presentation. Top with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
