Did you ever have one of those weeks that left you emotionally exhausted? Well a few weeks ago we were struggling with the 8 year old and his homework. He likes to play around - a lot - while doing his homework. He wants attention, but when you give it to him, he still plays. If you ignore him, he does everything he can to get your attention. I try disengaging, but it's difficult when he won't do what he's supposed to until someone responds to him.
So by the time the end of the week rolled by and I knew I had a busy day on top of being emotionally exhausted and on top of preparing to be busy the following day, I was very glad to have a slow cooker recipe to look forward to.
Again, at the last minute, just as I was getting ready to put everything on the table I thought the sandwiches needed just a bit of something else. While my husband doesn't care for the strong flavor of horseradish, I thought if I cut it with a bit of mayonnaise an made and aioli, it would be just the perfect touch. It was. Even though my husband is trying to cut out a lot of red meat, he went crazy for this sandwich.
