haiku for the day:
garlic, onions, beef, spices

It should be perfect weather for a pot roast.
Luckily for us, pot roast sounds delicious anytime!
How do you prepare potroast?
I started with a large deep pot, a little olive oil, burner set at medium-high.
- seared all the sides and edges of the roast
- added slices of garlic and halved onions to the pot and browned them, too
- added potatoes (peeled and quartered), browned them, too
- added carrots
- bay leaves, parsley, paprika, black pepper, and a bit of mixed steak seasonings
- flour sprinkled over all
- 2 cups of water
- 2 hours of simmering
But the weather was decidedly not wintry!
It was actually warm enough, sunny enough that we sat outdoors at the picnic table for a bit after walking and working in the yard!
I’m not accustomed to picking flowers, sniffing daffodils and preparing pot roast all on the same day.
Not a bad experience, just a different experience.
Seasonal favorites all mumbo-jumbo…
