For Dinner tonight

I am making this. The Italian version, because I happen to have all the ingredients and I'm out of Sherry for the other one. Like I've ever just had Sherry on hand. NOT!

Since I'm working from home today, I could take the time to put the roast in the oven. And be here when it's done in 6 hours.

So, you know... if you live nearby and want to brave the snow to come over for dinner - come on over! I feel fairly confident that no one will show up, so I'm not cleaning for company. So, if you do happen to show up, just know that Jeff's luggage is in the living room (he got home last night, but leaving again tomorrow morning); there are various toys on the floor at any given time, and lots of pillows and blankets from the kids laying around watching TV - last night and today.

And oh, look! A double post today!!! I am on a roll! And no, not the kind you put the beef on! OK, that was a little cheesy. Sorry. But I'm leaving it, because that's just the kind of mood I'm in. Coffee deprived, watching the snow fall outside, finding stuff to do around here. Guess I'll go make me some coffee now, since Jeff isn't getting up to do it.

*edit* WOW, this beef was some of the best I've tasted. Tender, juicy, great flavor. My entire family, including the picky eaters, loved it. And I mean loved. I shreaded half of it for sandwiches and the other half I left as a roast for the picky one who doesn't like sandwiches. Great either way.

Ooooo! make one of those really good coffee thingys you made me once! I can't remember what that was but it was wonderful and I don't even like coffee!

Glad Jeff is back home, I'm sure he needs to be and I don't need to think about him driving in this mess!

I'm making homemade bread in the machine today...must be a good day to make the house smell great, huh?

love you All!!
