Last week my wife, Carol, prepared a crock pot of food for dinner before she left for work. She placed a nice pot roast in the middle of the pot and added a small amount of water for it to cook. She also prepared a nice medley of vegetables and mushrooms to add flavor. She cut up colorful red and yellow peppers, deep green snow peas, sharp smelling onions, and musky mushrooms. Since I was working at home, Carol asked me to put the vegetables and mushrooms in the pot a couple of hours before the meal was ready to eat. She suggested that I could stir them if I wished adding that the meat may break up with the stirring. I, of course, was willing to do my part.
