For Lent, this year, I gave up red meat, I’m slightly anemic so it was kind of a big decision; but to be clear not a huge sacrifice.  Up until about 2 weeks ago, I was doing ok, then out of the clear blue sky I started smelling meat everywhere.  And that’s when things started to get difficult, I’d go to the local pharmacy, smell grilled burgers from the cowboy bar across the street and my stomach began to growl.  Thankfully before I could give into temptation Easter arrived and I had Pot Roast.  Specifically Trisha Yearwood’s Roast Beef with Gravy.  I followed the recipe exactly as it appears on the website. And it turned out so well, that I may only ever make pot roast this way again.

Spring is here!

Here comes the sun

Spring is here! Except for the fact that it is probably going to snow here tomorrow morning.
Access to my favorite fresh veggies is not to far away; and this has me looking forward to cooking again. Oh yeah, I haven't been cooking a lot this winter mostly the same types of soups.

Anyway, Happy Spring everyone.
