Tell Me Thursday

1. If you won the lottery (a big one... I'm talking stupid muchos cash) what would you do with the money?

Thanks for reminding me!  I have lottery tickets from last night's drawing ... will have to pull them out and see if I won anything.  I'd buy an island.

2. After winning the lottery would you work a day job? If so, what would you do?

I would be managing my island and hiring workers, etc.  "Jodi's Island" would be one of the finest vacation destinations ever.  Sort of like a Scotland only you wouldn't have to cross "the pond" to get there.  Lots of sheep.  Lots of green rolling hills.  And cool castles.

3. Do you have any auxiliary dogs? Auxiliary dogs are dogs that are not essential to your main purpose (usually tiny, but not always). If you don't have an auxiliary dog what might you choose?

At the moment, I don't.  I used to have the best auxiliary dog in the world in Jag, but I haven't been able to "replace" him.   I am not into kick-me dogs, so little dogs are out.  I love Great Danes though.  If I could afford to feed it, and my house was large enough for one, I'd have one in a heartbeat.

4. Do you have a favorite crock pot recipe (or other recipe) you can share?

Yes!  I just made one the other day off of "Crockpot Girls" on Facebook.  It goes like this.

Pepperoncini Beef Roast
1 beef roast.  Put it at the bottom of the crockpot.
1 package of dry ranch dressing mix.  Pour it (just like that) over the roast.
1 package of dry brown gravy mix.  Pour it (just like that) over the roast.
1 stick of butter ... place it on top of the roast.
1 jar of pepperoncinis ... add the entire jar (juice and all) around the roast.
Cook on low for 8 hours. 

Awesome!  It's beef roast with a kick!  I served it with green bean casserole made with fresh green beans from the guy down the road.  Also made mashed potatoes from his fresh red potatoes.  And a homemade loaf of honey walnut bread.  It was to die for, and I very happily ate leftovers for 3 or 4 days.


  1. Yum!!! It's always fun to get new recipes!!! Can I visit you on your island? Sounds perfect!!!

  2. I'm totally doing that recipe this weekend for the guys. That sounds delish!

  3. Oh wow, that looks yummy! I wonder if you could just use whatever kind of peppers you had on hand? Though I think the slightly vinegary quality of the pepperoncinis would help to tenderize the beef.

    Party at Jodi's island. WOOT!
