corazon - A tech rehearsal! Wow..brings back memories. Hope it went well.

I usually make a big Sunday evening meal but had to change plans this weekend, so it will be mini-bacon mushroon swiss burgers, green beans, and oven fries.

While the fries are baking I'm going to also bake some meatballs for later this week.

Cross Rib Roast tonight

Sunday I try to make a pot roast. I almost always use the crockpot. Those new liners are great and make clean up easy! Line the crock pot with carrots, onions, celery and potatoes, cutinto small pieces. Place your roast on top, seared or not, does not matter to me. Then, mix together 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard, 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 teaspoon tarragon, some finely chopped parsely and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. MIx it all up read good, I use a sandwhich baggy, then pour it over the roast. Brushing it to spread evenly. Cover and slow cook (I set mine on high for the first 4 hours, then turn it to med for the last hour) Ta da! My husband loves the flavors of this particular recipe. I generally don't measure my ingrediants, I tend to eyeball them, but the ones listed is what I aim for when I eyeball the amounts. =o] If you make a gravy, you can use 1/2 cup of the juices from the crock pot with 1/2 cup of water, puree some of the veggies and add those and let it cook until slightly thick. Great with a salad that has a very light dressing, for the meat is very flavorful. You can also mix up the seasonings for marinade, good with chicken, fish or shrimp!
I save any leftover roast for shredded beef burritos the next evening.

I'm grilling a fat rib eye tonight for dinner, with grilled asparagus, roasted red potatoes and angel food cake with strawberries. I have an appetizers from Trader Joes to have too, feta and caramliezed onion tartletts.

The sun is out here and its a nice day to grill.

where do I find Caine's seasoning mix concoction? I have one of my own, but always eager to tweak or try something new ...

Back on topic, I haven't started those meatballs yet, so I'm thinking they'll go in the sauce tomorrow (whoops!), and we'll make French onion soup instead with the beef stock I made yesterday. No sherry in the house, which I like in FO soup, so I'll have to wing it with wine or something.
