This is what we had for dinner:
Leftover roast beef, roasted green beans, and mashed cauliflower with butter, sour cream, and a little garlic. Everything was so good!
The roast: I made it last weekend in my crock pot. I just laid it in the crock, salted, peppered, and garlic powdered it and rubbed it in really good. Mix 1/2 cup light soy sauce and 1 cup water and poured over the roast. I laid a few sprigs of rosemary in the juice and cooked on low 8 hours. This makes a nice roast with au jus gravy. It's a French Dip Roast Beef recipe I've used for years.
The green beans: Bought a bag of pre-washed and trimmed green beans. Lined a cookie sheet with foil, put a couple of handfuls of green beans down, drizzled some olive oil over them and mixed them up real good with my hands. Then I salted, peppered, and garlic powdered them and roasted in a 350-degree oven for 30 minutes. I turned up the heat to 400 degrees and let them go another 10 minutes because we like them good and brown. YUM.
The mashed cauliflower: Cut up a head of washed cauliflower, place in a saucepan, cover with salted water, and boil for about 15 minutes until soft. Drain. Add as much butter and sour cream as you want, add salt & pepper (I added some garlic too). You can add cheese too, but I decided not to. I'll do that another time for something different. Mix with your electric mixer until creamy like mashed potatoes. Add a bit of cream if you need to thin them out any. I didn't need to.
So my food for the day was:
9:30: Earl Grey Tea with Truvia & cream
1:00: Egg and cheese sandwich made on Oopsie Rolls
4:00 Earl Grey Tea with Truvia & cream
6:00: Roast, roasted green beans, mashed cauliflower
9:30: Cold beef wiener dipped in mustard, a chunk of sharp cheddar
Water, water, water.
Did anybody else watch Oprah's interview with David Letterman last night? I love him. It was a good interview but it really needed to be two hours. They barely touched on each subject, and I wanted to hear more about his s*x scandal last year and how he handled it with his wife.
You were all probably watching Downton Abbey, and I probably didn't even spell that right. Before Christmas, I looked at the video with Seasons 1 and 2 at Target, but they wanted $37 for it, and I wasn't willing to pay that much. I guess I just missed out. I'll live.
