It was a small roast but Weez figured if it was cooked on low in the crock pot with some vegetables and seasonings it would be all right. She made the rice up ahead of time, not knowing when Sherm would be able to get a supper break from work. The rasberry cobbler came out of the oven all bubbly and smelled wonderful. Yet, what did sherm come home to? The roast was as dry as popcorn and somehow the cobbler was left on the stove with the electric burner on low. How on earth the burner got turned on was a mystery. Weez smiled up at Sherm and said "I guess I'm serving a newlywed supper! You don't have to eat it if you don't want to. I won't fall apart this time!"
Sherm laughed and ate anyways. "The cobbler wasn't that bad, and even though the meat was dry it tasted ok. You are funny! You crack me up woman! 'Newlywed supper' I remember rubber bread dough that wouldn't rise and steak that wouldn't be accepted as a burnt offering! See ya later gorgeous!" Even as the man was walking out the door he was smiling and laughing. Sometimes the best efforts turn out to be burnt offerings and then, sometimes the worst of times can make you smile.
