Maybe you woke up on valentine’s day with a slight hangover and a vague memory of winking at the bartenders … AGAIN.
Fine, here is how you create a valentine’s day dish to serve your roommate’s hungry family.
First, start cooking the cupcakes so the apartment smells like warm vanilla when they arrive. You can find your own cupcake recipe. Here’s the crock pot part:
Take a pound or so of boneless skinless chicken pieces and season them with salt, pepper, and ground chile pepper. Brown the pieces in a pan with a little bit of vegetable oil. As the pieces are browning, you can chop an onion, a red pepper, and three cloves of garlic. Stir them into a can of crushed tomatoes. Sprinkle some dried rosemary in there. Once the chicken is browned on all sides, put it in the crock pot. Cover with the tomatoes and et cetera, and cook on high for 4 hours. An hour or so before your dish is scheduled to be finished, throw in some rinsed frozen peas.
Serve over yellow rice.
After you’ve cleaned the dishes, take the pineapple your roommate’s family brought, cut it in half, sprinkle with butter (don’t tell), brown sugar, and cinnamon. Bake at 350 for a half hour or until you think it’s ready to share. It’s valentine’s day after all.
