Sunday Roast 06 May 2012

Today I am doing a Sunday roast. I bought a standing rib roast before Easter as they were on sale and froze it.

It is now in the oven and I am using the "no peek" method.

I will make some Yorkshire pudding with it and some artichokes.

What's your dinner (Sunday roast) today?

Stirling (DH) is off to Calgary for four days, so I can eat all the weird stuff he doesn't like. Hmm, I'll have to see what I have in the freezer.

I should buy some Brussels sprouts. The smell should be gone by Thursday.

Just throw open the windows and grab a sweater. Enjoy the sprouts, Hey I wonder if there is much smell if you roast them?

No, no, no!

It's the smell of the sprouts. When Stirling was a kid, his grandparents had a farm. For some reason or other an entire field of Brussels sprouts was on fire. Ever since then, he gets nauseous at the smell of them cooking. I'm pretty sure that roasting them would do it to him too.

It isnít cold out, just wet and schloggy. I pulled some beef from the freezer last night to thaw and I have enough veggies to make Stew Ė taters, carrots, onion peas and green beans + some herbs. I was being so good lately not to make dishes that create more leftovers than I can eat. Fortunately I like stew, and itís usually better warmed up the next day . Funny, I donít mind that there is leftover Rhubarb Pie from yesterday o rthat it will be a repeat from breakfast.

Wow, how'd you know, Frank?

I took a large beef roast out of the freezer yesterday so I could put it into the crock-pot with some onions, carrots and celery. Of course, there are lots of tasty herbs and spices, too, along with a little tomato paste, beef stock and wine. Will probably add some mashed or oven-roasted potatoes. There's still a little of the bourbon-lemon bundt cake left for dessert.

I wanted to make lots because we have to be on the road for a doctor's appointment 300+ miles away in Louisville tomorrow and I am pretty certain we'll be a little too bushed to think of cooking dinner tomorrow when we return home. Besides, leftover roast beef is the bomb.

Going to make spicy fried shrimp in a Asian fusion sauce of soy, ginger, sweet chili paste, garlic and hot dried peppers. To go along side a light salad with ginger dressing. Possibly a beer or two, then calling it a night.
