Just got back from Vitamia in Garfield....

Cheese ravioli with 'sunday gravy'...meatballs, sweet sausage and bracciole.
Garlic bread with tomatoes and mozzarella
Tossed salad

dessert is any of the myriad leftover cakes and pies and cookies and brownies from yesterday.

A bottle of chianti would go nicely...

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Not sure, really don't feel like cooking. I would rather go to bed and wake up tomarrow and start all over again.

Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

I had Forgotten how good a properly roasted beef roast tasted like.

Generally when I, or someone else cooks a beef roast it is cooked with veggies etc in a pot. This time, I seasoned an eye of round, placed it on a rack and roasted it.

Such intense flavors! Moist, tender, the seasonings penetrating well into the meat.

Make sure you use a thermometer, you don't want to over cook it. I cooked mine to just under 160F then let it rest for 20 minutes before slicing. I didn't want it too rare as I will be using the leftovers for sandwich meat.

Oh, the side dish, a HUGE sweet potato in the microwave.. I could only eat half of it! and a small wedge of iceberg lettue with sweetened mayonnaise and cracked black pepper for a salad.

Hmm, I thought I posted in here already. Guess not. lol

I prepared a pork roast in my slow cooker with celery, onions and potatoes. I used a prepackaged seasoning packet, only because I couldn't figure out which ones to use. Also made some cornbread muffins.

I had planned to make cupcakes for dessert...and I still will, only later. I was watching Foodnetwork (as usual lol) and Danny Boome made some continental smores and I just had to have 'em. I had all the ingredients except the sea salt so I went for it. They were awesome and my daughter LOVED them!

For anyone interested, I butterfly split two butter croissants and spread some melted marshmallows on them (after toasting the bread lightly). He used marshmallow creme but I didn't have any. Then I placed three squares of Dove dark chocolate in each and popped em back in the oven (broiler) to melt the chocolate. Did I mention they were YUUUUUMY?! Oh my!! As for the sea salt, he sprinkled it lightly on the chocolate to bring out the sweetness more, but I didn't have any. I'll have to try it with the salt later, but for now they were DE-LISH! *sigh* I love Foodnetwork!
I'm in love with my new KA mixer, Miss Moxie! (that's her in my avatar )

We had roast chicken, potatoes, parsnips, carrots and brussel sprouts. I also made a sweet potato soup for the boys to have at school next week.

I wanted to grill steaks today, but dh insists we go out to dinner. I think I'll give in. lol
I had an open house again for my mom's condo. We actually had a lot of people come through. Hopefully it will get sold soon.
