More simple and easy again today. I put a chuck roast in the crock pot this morning with thick-sliced potatoes, carrots, pearl onions, S&P, bay leaves and some beef broth and let it cook all day. I just added some flour and tomato paste to make a gravy so now I wait another hour and it should be done!

Penne with raw tomato sauce (grape tomatoes, black olives, garlic, herbs, red pepper flakes, etc.), with a side of roasted cauliflower.

EVOO heated in pan then ground red pepper flakes, ground peppercorns, sea salt and sesame seeds were added to the oil and cooked for 1 minute. Fresh minced garlic added and sauted for 1 minute. Sliced boneless/skinless chicken breast added and cooked till no longer pink. Button mushrooms quartered, carrot sticks, broccoli spears and leak strips added and cooked till tender firm. Served with brown rice (that was cooked with just water and salt) that was as creamy as risotto.

I made a Shepard's pie... with moose meat, carrots and potatoes from the garden.

For dessert I made a lemon meringue pie, and brownies :)

We had spaghetti (I splurged and added double the mushrooms I usually use) and California blend vegetables.
