Quick sear on the roast, saute carrots & onions in the same pan, place all in roast pan, adequate salt & pepper, cover with butter and pour over with chardonnay. Roast at 350 for 80 minutes, covered. Uncover, start wild rice. Remove roast from oven when rice is done. Wait 15 minutes. Plate. Dine in heaven.
|From Early Christmas Dinner|
Because my Sister and her husband have plans to be with their daughter’s boyfriend’s family during the actual holiday and that weekend, we decided to have our dinner and gift giving yesterday.
As such, we made one of our favorite family style meals, tacos. Mom has that wonderful serving tray that houses 9 different bowl containers for all the yummy stuff that you might want to put on your taco. And you can’t see it in this picture, however, if you click through to the complete album, you’ll see the entire table setting.
Have to say that it was a super delicious meal and the four of us thoroughly enjoyed dining together. And that was before we opened up all of our gifts. Woo Hoo!

Only about 40 pages or so in, but have to say that in addition to those being quite fascinating pages, I very much admire Michael Pollan’s writing style.
Amazon also delivered his “In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto“. Looking forward to reading that as well.
