I cut up a chuck roast that was in the freezer. Seared it on med-high heat, seasoned it and gave it a nice browning. Put it in the crock pot. Followed up with a whole small onion which I browned and then deglazed the pan with a little sherry and stirred it in. That was about two hours ago and the house is smelling good. :-) I'll finish off the stew when it gets closer to dinner time with some sauteed mushrooms and some red wine. Delish! Probably do a big salad with it.

Okay, so you some of you may have followed that I have been trying to have beef dip all week. I took the meet out on Tuesday to thaw in the fridge and didn't get to it on Wednesday and Thursday was a night when no one was eating at the same time. So, tonight was to be the night. I got the meat out of the fridge, turned the oven on, prepared my roaster and opened the bag with the roast in it......only to find some perfectly cut sirloin steaks!!!! I buy whole sirloin tips and cut them into various steaks, roasts, stir fry packs and freeze them. Normally DH bags and labels them for me but I now remember this time he didn't and I just figured "I would know".

So, now I have to call DH to go get some more steaks and some propane and we will have Grilled steak, baked potatoes, the spinach salad, mushrooms and I will make garlic bread out of the ciabata buns I was using for the sandwiches.

I am sure no one will complain about the change but I sure feel silly! I am sure glad this was for my family and not a catered event!

Hot roast beef sandwiches with mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes. ( For those of you following the threads, that means we had Applebee's last night )

Well, I was feeling pretty good about our caesar salad with seared salmon until I read about what's goin' on at Uncle Bob's.....good thing DH doesn't read this board. He'd be hoppin' a plane north.

I went to see my mom today at the assisted living (which is such a downer). I'm making chicken quesadillas and artichoke dip just for something to eat for now. Ds is working tonight at Outback so on his break he will be bringing us some top caps of beef which are to die for. They always have a bunch left over. Hopefully some baked potatoes too so I really won't have to cook much. I have to wait til after 9p.m. though.

So, Karen, the plan is you head northeast, I head southeast and we end up at Uncle Bob's! If you want to bring the Caesar Salad, I'll whip up a dessert!
