I’ve got a meeting at 6 p.m. tonight so needed something I could put in the crockpot for everyone to serve themselves when it fits their schedule. I had a roast in the freezer so that is what I decided to cook. I had about 1/2 cup of Merlot which was past its drinking prime but okay for cooking so I poured that over the seasoned roast. I also had half an onion in the refrigerator which I cut up and placed on top, along with half a package of baby carrots. I haven’t decided yet whether to make mashed potatoes or just cut some up and add to the crockpot. I’ve got some frozen rolls thawing and rising which I will bake in awhile. I’ll also serve some frozen green beans with all this.
We are supposed to get yucky, icy weather tomorrow. I think that might be a good time to do some baking. I ought to bake some bread and the guys would be delighted if I made some chocolate chip cookies. I have all the ingredients I need for either/both of these.
I still haven’t been to the store but I might stop at Braums tonight after my meeting for some milk and eggs. Chris will be on his own food-wise this weekend and he often likes to make himself an omelet if Mommy isn’t here to feed him. After a couple of years of having chickens it seems so odd to have to purchase eggs. Not to mention they aren’t nearly as good. We have decided to get more chicks this spring but until they start laying I think I need to talk to my next-door neighbor about buying some eggs from him. We are now totally spoiled by fresh eggs!
