Paleo Diet Day 9

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Today I ventured boldly into a new realm - I made my first pot roast! And I'm only 52 ... emoticon

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! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I believe I need to make a list of must-have can-do dishes to whip out in the kitchen. Pot roast - check! emoticon

    I still remember the first time I TRIED to fix a pot roast. emoticon

    I had just gotten married (I was 19 and knew very little about cooking because my mom didn't allow me in the kitchen unless I was trying to earn a Girl Scout Badge). Anyway, I had asked my mother-in-law how to fix it but apparently something went wrong. It was terrible!!! Ended up throwing it out. She had told me to cook it on the stove top...later found out it should have been cooked in the oven...thanks mom. My mom was a great cook. emoticon Thanks for the memories, I can laugh about it now. emoticon

    Apparently yours turned out a lot better. emoticon
