an interim post….

Hey!  Here I am!  I’ve put off posting because work continues on the renovation, and there hasn’t been any significant change worth a photograph.  But — I’ve missed you guys so decided to send out a note that’s a little out of my league.  Y’all know that I don’t like to spend any more time in the kitchen than is absolutely necessary.  Conflict:  hate to cook but love to eat.  -sigh-  So here’s the story….

A few weeks ago I accidentally bought an eye of round roast at the grocery store.  I know — toughest piece of meat on the market.  I didn’t have my glasses on.  All I could see was a beautiful roast with a $3.00 price tag.  Naturally I snagged it.  LOL  Got home and tossed it in the freezer.  Pulled it out a few days later to thaw for dinner and realized my error….  Oh dang.  (Okay, that’s not what I really said, but let’s pretend that I didn’t use an ugly word.)  Still, we had to eat it.  I googled a few recipes and decided to try this one — mainly because of the blog title.  Something about a “domestic man” attracted me.  -smile-  It turned out okay.  My oven didn’t hold the heat very well so I had to cook it longer with some heat on, but it was tasty and pretty and not too tough so I decided this week to try it again with a few modifications.

Instead of using the roasting pan I put it in a deep iron skillet that would help hold the heat.  Then I rubbed the roast down with olive oil before I coated it with the seasonings so they would stick better.  I also added a handful of baby Dutch yellow potatoes….  Yummy, yummy, tiny potatoes.  At the point in the process where I was to turn the oven off I turned it to warm instead (150 degrees) and followed the rest of the directions.

Before cooking....

All done! Looks great, right? It was pretty tasty but still a bit tough. We ate it anyhow! LOL

I’ll use the leftovers tonight — little slivers of roast to top off a big salad.  Not too bad, huh?

I hope that y’all are having a great week and looking forward to an even better weekend.  I’ll be back soon with more photos…..
