I wasn't doing well energy wise today, so I had Chinese delivery-- egg rolls, teriyaki beef skewers, fried rice and szechwuan chicken. Even they know how to make leftovers!

Sounds like the new stove is getting a workout.

Without question!

I think we need a monster cake to test the oven. You have to be sure the temperatures are accurate and that the oven shelves are level.

I'm roasting that beef chuck shoulder cross rib roast that I posted about a few days ago. I'm using Cheryl's reply method.

Cross Rib Roast (Beef Shoulder Roast)

I browned the 1.18 lb roast in my cast iron pan instead of the deeper 3 Qt. dutch oven pan I just bought today. The skillet made it easier to turn the roast while browning. I browned it, removed the roast, added in some carrots, onions, celery and sauted them, added in a 1/4 cup of beef stock and let simmer for a few minutes. Then I poured it all into my newly bought 3 quart dutch oven and set the roast in and added more stock halfway up the roast. It's cooking now.

I hope to be able to slice it into slices when done. I'm only going to use the roast, not the vegetables because I want to make a mashed potatoes, asparagus, roast meal.

BTW, out of season asparagus is up to $5.99 a lb. now. Up from $3.99 3 weeks ago, and up from $4.99 a week ago.

I'll make up a half envelope of instant mashed taters for the SousChef, and we'll each have glorified green salad.
I am glad we are both having the garlic sauce!

This turned out well, and the TJ's sauce is as good as my 40 cloves of garlic sauce, and a lot easier. I only used 1/2 a jar for 4 thighs, and 5 wings along with the frozen artichoke hearts and whole mushrooms. I just froze the remaining sauce in the jar for next time. That plate is Steve's, no mashed spuds for me and that's ok. I used a spoon to enjoy the sauce.

Cheryl, I'm hoping pork shoulder will go on sale here tomorrow. I'm dying to make posole for the cold front that will be moving in later this week.

Kayelle, that sauce sounds great! I wish Trader Joe's was closer to me.

We had a couple leftover pork chops warmed in the toaster oven, with leftover apple sauce and hash browns. Another brown dinner so I didn't take pix

GG, I hope you find pork shoulder on sale soon, too. Always nice to get a deal. I would have gotten more than two, but that was the limit. I think I'll go back tomorrow and get two more.

Kay...that looks great! I'll have to add that bottled garlic sauce to my TJ's list. Taxy, I could go for your dinner, it looks good.

Caslon...I sure hope your roast turned out to your liking.

Everyone's dinners sound so good. I'm kind of craving ham now.
