Cooking and Reading

Well, let's see. Today I read and read and researched to death how to cook a round bottom roast. I didn't want a roast to cook to death as in a pot roast, I wanted a "roasted roast" to slice thin and have with corn on the cob, sweet potato fries and slaw. I got a little worried when I read that this cut of beef was tough and tasteless but I did find recipes where people did them all the time and just like I imagine it to be. It is cooking now, so we shall see.
I'm also in the middle of a book that is really good. It's called Summer's Child and I bought it on a whim at the grocery store the other day. Not sure I'd be able to read, it is always a risk of wasting my money. But I'm glad I bought it, it is good.
I've decided I really like cooking for people. For so long there I didn't have anyone to cook for. I'm going to miss doing that when I do get my own place. No fun to cook for just yourself.

Is a round bottom roast the one with ties? How'd it turn out?

No ties, but it turned out good, a little too rare for Amy although I thought I was making it medium done, it was more like medium rare. Haleigh ate it with horseradish sauce and she is a PICKY eater! How'd you figure out I was blogging again? Glad you are here.

Glad to see you back. I've been on a short vacation, and have been resting and catching up on work since I got back.

Keep hanging in and if you need help, it's always out there. Maybe a support group?
