Today I ventured boldly into a new realm - I made my first pot roast! And I'm only 52 ...
So -- had to rush out to try and fix my computer this morning so breakfast was of the banana and almond butter variety. Fixed computer, had a new problem arise, but also unexpectedly resolved an ongoing issue at work , so the world got a little better. Ice skated, then -
Lunch: salad at the local co-op: spinach, onions, shredded carrots, crumbled bacon, chunked chicken, mushrooms, kalamata olives, oil and vinegar dressing.
Dinner (drum roll): pot roast - top sirloin, onion, garlic -- cooked at 350F for two and three-quarters hours. Side of zucchini, crimini mushrooms, and onion sauteed with a little mushroom broth.
Everyone pronounced themselves satisfied, and my daughter liked it so much she carved off three large slices for her "seconds." I tried to take it as a compliment even as I looked at the small remnant she had left for me!
I believe I need to make a list of must-have can-do dishes to whip out in the kitchen. Pot roast - check!
