I grew up in a meat and potatoes house. We had some sort of meat and baked potato almost every night for dinner. Yet I left home not knowing how to make a roast or the what cuts beef are for what. My Mom showed me how to make roast beef when I was treading water with Thomas as a newborn, and I had made it maybe one more time. I always get worried if I screw it up and then what will we eat for dinner? With a Costco-sized box of chicken nuggets in reserve, I threw caution to the wind because I’ll tell you what; I'm tired of cooking almost every day. So I fired up the new stove as I honed my mad, roasting skills.
|That piece of meat turned out AWESOME! I stuffed it full of garlic and even made gravy.|
|And since I made a mistake and bought individual sized packages |
of instant flavored mashed potatoes, we each got our own flavor. WIN!
The only thing missing was my dress, pearl necklace, and telling Eddie Hascal to stop being such a smart ass! (You know June Cleaver was just chomping at the bit to say that)!
So, Friends, have you mastered any new skills lately?
