i cut a 3 1/2 lb bottom round roast into large cubes. dredged in flour with salt, fresh ground black pepper, onion and garlic powder and a smidge of cayenne. browned in butter. covered with burgundy wine, a splash of gravy master seasoning, 1 pouch of dry onion soup mix and water. simmering now.

i washed my baby red potatoes that will go in the stew with their jackets on and i peeled and cut the carrots into large pieces. frozen peas and pearl onions will go in for the last 3 minutes after the gravy gets a slight thickening. it has gotten hot and muggy so i think the biscuits are out, i really don't want to light the oven, i could do them in the toaster oven but i am afraid of burning them.

It is Father's Day and a work day for DH so my sister came over and we had dinner at lunch.

I served beef dip with a tortellini and cheese salad, green salad and home made fries. For dessert, a diabetic friendly chocolate angel food cake with fresh pineapple and ice cream (regular for my sister, no sugar added for Dad and I and soy for DH).

So for dinner I think Dad and I will just have soup.

Hi Alix, just one ? What's a committee salad?

And I made ham and cheese omelette for DH this AM w/ww toast, we had Clam Chowder w/ garlic bread for lunch and DH 'burned' some dogs on the grill for dinner. DH has started buying ballpark grillmaster hotdogs and now says he won't ever buy any other kind. I haven't tried 'em yet but they look really good.
