Look Mom! I'm Eating Pot Roast!
That's right, I am actually eating and enjoying pot roast! As my mother will tell you, at no point in my life have I ever been a fan of pot roast. Not sure why, I just never liked it. My husband, Aaron, and I made a trip to my parents house a few weekends ago and were greeted by the wonderful smell of a roast in the crock pot (I will admit that pot roast does smell deee-licious when cooking). Knowing that I'm not a fan of the dish and convinced that he could show me the errors of my taste buds, Aaron decided to try his hand at cooking a roast.
So on his next day off, Aaron slaved all day over a hot stove in sweltering heat (our second heat wave of the summer) and made dinner. Hesitant to try it at first, I sampled a spoonful from the pot on the stove and was pleasantly surprised! The potatoes and carrots were melt in your mouth tender and the roast was cut into perfect Joanna-size pieces (that's another story). It was so good that we had leftovers the next day!
I should mention that Aaron is definitely the cook of the family. I'm really good at cooking chicken nuggets & fries, toast and an occasional pasta dish. Baking is more my thing. We pretty much have an unspoken agreement: he cooks dinner and I take care of dessert.
P.S. Two days after the roast Aaron made lasagna - from scratch!
