Natural beauty.

Excellent essay on the state of things here. I have always wondered about this myself.

Crock Pot, Part II

So it turned out okay, I suppose. It made for a good hearty dinner. Truthfully, it was a little bland, which is easy to remedy. Next time I'll add a bay leaf or two, some sea salt and black pepper. That might do the trick. Of course with our teensy weensy family we have LOADS of leftovers which is never bad. As it was cooked in the crock pot, the meat turned out really super tender and the potatoes were exactly right. G gobbled everything up, but M turned her nose up at the pork. She thought she was holding out for ice cream, but at our house the rule is "If you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding. How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat." So she did not get any ice cream, and we now can have lots of pork sandwiches.

What's in the Crock Pot?

About 8 Fingerling potatoes
About 4 Boiler Onions, peeled
1 Shallot, peeled and cut into chunks
1 Pork Tenderloin cut
1 Peeled whole apple
A sprinkling of Mrs. Dash, grill flavor

Arrange the ingredients in order, with the meat on top. Sort of nestle the apple in the middle with the meat wrapped around it. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

I don't know how it's going to turn out, because its cooking right now. I'll post an update.

Like I said.

Here is another blog that I am also working on.


I have had a few readers ask me why I call myself the "Gothgirl" as I look very much like everyone else and I don't even wear black any more. My response as I have come to realize is this. When Gothgirl's grow up they become what I am today: A socially aware housewife with multiple degrees, a laptop and a vendetta. Trust me, you don't want to get on my bad side. Ultimately, one does not need to be a fishnet prone waif dripping in eyeliner to be a true Gothgirl. If one is Goth in one's heart, then one is Goth enough...

I forgot to add the Egg.

Add one egg to the mixture, too. Otherwise everything will fall apart.
