Good Things Take Time

My meal tonight was an exercise in patience. One I anticipated, one….I did not.

I knew I was going to make Drip Beef Sandwiches.

(Put a 3lb chuck roast, an onion cut into quarters, garlic salt, salt, cloves, bay leaves, and white vinegar in a slow cooker and let it work it’s magic)

I’m rather new to cooking with a slow-cooker. Mine is older than I am, but works just fine.

It only has two settings though, and I am trying to learn it. (I feel like, with an oven or microwave they’re all the same in principal, but little tweaks and cooking time are different)

Now….to the dessert.

4 Layer Delight.

It sounds simple enough, right? And the recipe looks that way too.
The one ingredient not on the list—time.
The first layer is baked, then you cool it before adding the next layer.
Add a layer, cool it, add a layer, cool it etc.
As you’ve likely guessed, I didn’t allow enough cooling time. The first layer was warm, so I thought I was ok–but layer 2 started to adhere rather than spread, and tried to pick up the first. I fixed as best I could and completed the dish.
Aesthetically it’s not perfect, but it’s tasty just the same.
Just have to keep in mind to be patient and let the dish develop.
By the way if you would like either recipe, just let me know!
