Winter Comfort Food

I decided on making a pot roast yesterday. I am guessing it's because of this 'winter' weather we are having. I can't remember the last time I made one. My mom made them a lot, and usually on Sundays for after church. Ah, what we remember.


I hemmed and hawed about whether to do it in the slow cooker but decided on doing the searing of everything on the stove top and then low and slow in a 275ยบ oven.  My timing was a bit off because we went furniture shopping yesterday afternoon and it ran a little long so the prep started later than I had in my brain.  I had to subsidize G for bad timing with a half a loaf of french bread and a bowl of fresh shaved parmesan and olive oil.  Every one was happy even though dinner was an hour late.

While all the washing, drying, washing and drying of the flannel, I decided to do some non thinking work for DFG.  I had some stuff cut out already and with the stuff that Claudia lined up for me

last week, I managed to get a few liners done.  It's a good start.  I have to buckle down this next week and get some quilting obligations done that are hanging over my head.  The time to get going is NOW.

So how was the pot roast? We don't eat beef that often and it's a dish I forget to make! Thanks for the reminder!
