Sunday's Meal...

I made most of the meal before liturgy

Sunday morning.

From this slowcooker cookbook that I

have found to always cook up great meals.

I used the roast beef recipe that called for


small tin of tomato sauce

1 bay leaf

2 lbs roast beef

(my variation here: chopped up 3 big cloves of garlic,

cut the cloves into 2 or 3 slivers and pierced the meat and

put the garlic inside the 'cut' and then put lots of olive oil

salt and pepper)

4 potatoes peeled and chopped

4 carrots, peeled and chopped

2 onions peeled and chopped

beef broth/bullion in 1 cup water

(I changed this and added at least 3 cups total,

which made a lot of great beef juice broth,

part of which made nice thick gravy)

The recipe called for browning and flouring the meat

but I did not,

but added a little bit of flour for good measure :)

It cooked away (on high) while we were at church

and out for the afternoon.

Salad was a green lettuce, tomato

avocado with a balsamic vinaigrette.

We saw tulips

the currency museum

and enjoyed the dinner at my place.

I am thankful that I got to see

some of my extended family and have

a special dinner with them.
