I had a busy day today. Soon after I got up I got the slow cooker going. The pot roast is ready for tomorrow. It is a chuck roast. On sale for $2.50 a pound. That seems so high for a sale. It was nicely marbled and I didn't cook it until it fell a apart... so it should be good.
It was also garbage day, so I gathered the garbage and rolled the can out to the roadside. So much easier to do with the driveway paved.
Then there was laundry to do. I have them all folded...oops need to put that last load away. I also loaded the bags to give to the Salvation Army into the car trunk. I didn't get them there last week.... remember the driveway was being paved, so that made it too far to tote the bags to the car. After Frank's doctor's appointment tomorrow I'll drop them off. Maybe one day I'll take the time to wander through the store.
Frank wanted steak for today... mmm sounds too much like the pot roast to me. Well it taste a lot different. Different cut of meat and different seasonings. We had a microwaved baked potato on the side along with baby carrots. The carrots were beginning to grow whiskers, so time to use them. I boiled the carrots, drained and added a bit of butter... well Smart Balance... and a little bit of brown sugar and simmered... oh and Frank wanted a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg in them. They turned out pretty good.
I made biscuits today. It has been a while since I've made any. Most of the time I just poke some Pillsbury frozen biscuits in the oven. They just aren't the same as a homemade buttermilk biscuits. I made the biscuits a bit smaller today... a better portion size for Frank and probably me too.
I also made granola today. It has been a while since I've made it too. The recipe is over in my recipe blog: Zaroga's Granola. I really think the recipe would be just as good with about half the oil. I've made a note to try that next time I make it. It is good with milk or it could be used for a yogurt topping.
Here is a picture of the granola and the leftover biscuits.
I had granola tonight for my supper and it was good. Tomorrow morning will I eat granola or will I cut a couple of biscuits in half and slather with butter (Smart Balance), sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar and pop under the broiler... stay tune :-)
