Rewind to Day One: 219 Blog Posts and 410 Followers Ago

Just for fun…and, well, because Gabi wanted to see it, I pulled up my first blog post.

As I re-read it I laughed at myself and thought maybe I should re-post it for those of you that started following recently.   Read more

My Cat Thinks Life Cereal Will Give Her A 10th Life…

See that upper side of the Life Cereal box that has been eaten off?

It literally was shredded.

I already tossed the shreds before I thought of writing this post.

Sorry…it definitely would have been good for a laugh.

Teeny tiny little bits of cardboard.

This is the type of thing our cat, Brownie does when we don’t get up at 5 a.m. to feed her…of course she needed to open the cupboard door to get to it, but that didn’t seem to be a problem for her. Read more

Booster Cables Attached…Charged and Ready to Go (Chug, Chug)

How do you start blogging again when you’ve taken such a long break? (It’s been almost 5 months.)

This is the question I’ve been struggling with for a few months.

I figured I needed a catchy title…which, of course, prolonged the process. Read more

The Deep, Dark Well and the Bright, Shining Son

Imagine you’re in the bottom of a really deep well.

Overwhelmed and haunted by memories:

A loss that cut deep in your soul.  Arguments with loved ones.  A history of past abuse.  A history of deep shame.

Memories of (insert yours here). Read more

Teriyaki Pot Roast

It may be April 3rd, but here in Northern Minnesota it looks like December.  More snow is in the forecast for tonight and with everyone’s moods low (I think we’ve hit an all new level of crankiness), I knew it was time for some comfort food.  Of course, having made regular pot roast throughout the winter, I decided to make it with a twist.

I rarely make something that’s not from a recipe.  I tried years ago and it was a disaster.  But this time…this time…it was FANTASTIC!  Of course there were a few things that I realized should have been done differently, so I incorporated those into the recipe below.

 

TERIYAKI POT ROAST

1 – 2-3# Beef Roast (find one that has some nice marbling – it makes the roast more juicy)

1 – Bottle of Teriyaki Sauce

4 – Golden Russet Potatoes

4-8 – Carrots, cut up (8 if you use small baby carrots)

6-8 – Brussel Sprouts

1 – Medium Onion – diced

1 – Shake of Montreal Steak Seasoning (to lightly cover the roast)

1 – gallon Ziploc Bag

Place your roast in a gallon Ziploc bag with 2/3 of the Teriyaki Sauce.  Refrigerate 4-6 hours.

Brown the roast (preferable in the same pan you’ll be using in the oven).  Once browned on all sides, add vegetables.  Pour in 1/4 cup of water and the rest of the Teriyaki Sauce.  Cover and cook at 350 degrees for 1.5 hours, remove the cover and cook another 30 minutes.

Remove roast from pan, slice and return to pan.  The juices will help keep it moist.  Serve with hot buttered rolls.

Enjoy!
