Great dinner is all I can say. When it is snotting outside, all you have to do is turn on the oven, and decide what you are going to cook. The larger the piece of beast, the better. My better half absolutely loves one pot meals, in fact, I believe that I could be schooled in the art of one pot cookery. If I included mashed potatoes, he is "all in", blind ante. That is what, I am attracted to, about him. He is not a food snob. He loves food and appreciates it, however he needs the lifelines. (phone a friend, 50/50/ etc).
My feet are cold, the rain soaking the dooryard, but I learned another blogger secret. Now you, can find any recipe at any time...wowwweeee. This is big for a knucklehead like myself. You live you learn.
My "not going to the mall" burrito Roast"
1 big pot roast in the 7 or 8 dollar range
1 bottle of V8 juice( I chose the smaller one, on the top shelf)
1 can beef stock
3 tablespoons butter
2 medium onions julienned
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 4oz cans of diced green chiles
salt and pepper to taste
In a stockpot, melt the butter and season the beast. Sear on all sides. Add the V8 juice, stock and green chiles and cook in a 325F oven until the roast can be pulled apart with a fork. Once that is achieved, get out your cheese, salsa, tortillas and sour cream and enjoy.
Shopping is a woman thing. It's a contact sport like football. Women enjoy the scrimmage, the noisy crowds, the danger of being trampled to death, and the ecstasy of the purchase.~Erma Bombeck
