I love scrapple ang grits ;)

I roasted fingerling potatoes and carrots from my garden in some evoo, a bit of butter, parsley and salt and pepper. Tossed some broccoli in for the last few minutes and served it all with the "bottom round roast" I mentioned earlier. Now I know that some will say, " that should have been pot roasted," but after marinating it in red wine and herbs and following that up with a dry rub....it was perfect! Tender and tasty with just the right amount of "pinkness". The 2007 Chateau St. Michelle Merlot was the perfect accompaniment. :-)

Dawgluver, how did your "experiment" work out? I thought it sounded delish!

It turned out really good, Somebunny! Thanks for asking! The quinoa added a certain toothsomeness, sort of like tiny wild rice grains.

I'd post it in Soups, but the ingredients are not something everyone would have in their fridge at any given time. Oh, what the heck...
