Mmm...looks good, Joey. I've been craving a rib eye but am determined to use what I've got in the freezer for the next week or so. Good sounding dinners all around here tonight!

Throw together burrito for dinner here this evening. I used the last vacuum sealed bag of pulled pork, refried beans and rice from the freezer, and doctored it up with a little shredded pepper jack, sour cream, and salsa verde. I'm stuffed.

I just got home from shopping. I'm tired, so I'm just going to microwave some frozen chili cheese dogs. Bought 2 petite sirloin roasts to freeze. It was Buy One Get One Free. So I bought a 1 pounder for $13 and got the other 1 pounder for free! I also bought a ham steak to cut up into cubes to mix with white sauce and peas (sorta like chipped beef meal), but all the stores I went to today don't stock any dry mix packets of White Sauce, damnit. I'm not even sure what White Sauce is, but it's what I use to use for that simple dish. I'll keep looking.

P.S. I found some off the wall supermarket that had super thin wide slices of Bottom Round to use for beef jerky. Just $5 for a pound and I don't have to slice a roast! Needless to say, I'm going back to that place for more jerky meat.

Caslon, it's a mother sauce, or béchamel. Super easy.

Melt 2 TBL butter in a saucepan, add 2 TBL flour and whisk over med heat till blended. Reduce heat, slowly pour in 1 cup of milk, stirring constantly till thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste, a little cayenne...whatever you'd like. You can add shredded cheese for a nice cheese sauce, too.

I like to cook the roux a bit longer than that, but at low heat so it doesn't turn brown. I can't stand the taste of the flour if it hasn't been cooked long enough.

Agreed.

$13 a pound for sirloin! Wow! Can't remember the last time I paid that much for beef.

I was hoping to go to a master gardener lecture tonight, but it didn't work out, so we had leftovers. I had a pork chop and roasted potatoes and DH had shrimp curry with rice.

I made a pork loin roast, rubbed with a puree of sun dried tomato, garlic, salt and EVOO. I forgot the rosemary. Darn, I knew I was forgetting something. Well it still turned out yummy. Served it with rřdkĺl, tossed salad, potatoes and gravy/sauce.

Thanks Cheryl. It's going to make good cold cuts too.
