I’ve got a 3-lb roast, potatoes, carrots, and onions going on top of the stove. Man, that roast smells heavenly already! I seasoned it with garlic powder, salt & pepper, and browned it up really good in a little olive oil before I covered it with a little water, added a can of Cream of Celery soup (I didn’t have any mushroom soup), three beef bouillon cubes, one packet of onion gravy mix, and one packet of brown gravy mix. I’m going to wait a couple of hours before putting the carrots and potatoes in. I don’t think they’ll need the whole time to get done. It should all be ready in four or five hours I think.
That was my grandmother’s Dutch oven that I’m making it in. I love to think about her when I cook.
Do y’all ever eat Campbell’s Cream of Celery soup? It’s so good. You should try it. I like to float a saltine cracker on top and break it up with my spoon and eat it with the soup. Keep adding saltines one-by-one and eating them with the soup until it’s all gone. YUM. Good comfort food. Oh, and another thing…make it with milk instead of water.
I have finished making the five additional squares and have them sewn to the blanket. I managed to get two rounds of the edging done last night before I had to stop. I hope to finish her up this afternoon. I have six more rounds to go. Yep, it’s a wide border. I’ll be back later today or this evening with the Grand Ta-Dah! I’ll be thinking of a name for her while finishing it up.
Bye for now…
