pot roast!

haiku for the day:

aroma uplift

garlic, onions, beef, spices

daffodils outdoors

It’s February.

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…
