Sort Of A Chicken Cacciatori Over Rice...
Tuesday was a busy day time-wise, so I threw some boneless skinless chix thighs into the crock-pot on a platform of onion, covered in red bell pepper, seasonings, red pasta sauce, and Parmesan... Went about 6 hrs. in slow cooker. Cooked up some white rice, and served as seen. Not too bad! Wife is taking some night classes, so we had a window of about 15 minutes to eat!
Today for me was a challenge.. 6 phone calls to 4 people to get one piece of steel priced correctly and delivered on time.. I am glad age has brought me some patience, because this would have sent me ballistic 20 yrs. ago...When I had fixed everything, and all had gotten back on track- I told the new kid (who had screwed up!) in the office to call the customer with the good news that all was well. I'm not much into glory anymore, and I wanted him to learn what feels like to get a little credit for a job well done. Pats on the back are getting rarer everyday!
