I was delighted to find The Pioneer Woman's blog and had to make her pot roast. My big-chunk-of-meat cooking skills are so-so (normally I blame it on the meat if it's not tender enough). But, The Pioneer Woman assured me that I needed to give it another shot. And I did. And my family couldn't stop OOOOing and AAAAHing. And I couldn't stop smiling. I couldn't stop being so proud of the aromatic rosemary sprigs, the tender carrots, the buttery mashed potatoes. After this very profound experience (and I'm not kidding), I realized how fulfilling it is to make a good meal for your family. I'm sort of a gotta-cook-so-we-can-eat cook. But that day I put my heart into it and I got so much more than food out of it!
You gotta try this roast!
Wish I had a plate right now.
Go here for the recipe. And if you make it, I wanna hear what you think!
