It’s a typical Pacific Northwest day. Hey Sandy, look at my sky! It’s like this from October through June, mostly. Boy, dog and I just did our trail walk. Boy on bike, dog faithfully following. See soggy dog:
When I was a child my favourite book was about Scuppers the sailor dog (by Margaret Wise Brown). I think there is a similarity.
This kind of day calls for comfort food. Here’s my recipe for the best ever comfort pot roast:
Two or four lbs of round roast, rubbed with garlic and browned in oil. For each two pounds, mix together one packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix and a jar of junior apricot baby food. Place roast in dutch oven, and cover with "sauce." Cover and cook in 325 degree oven for two hours (for 2lb roast) or 2.5 hours for 4lb roast. It makes its own beautiful gravy. Serve with steamed veggies and potatoes.
As they say in the real estate world: this is not a drive by. It may sound weird, but turns out incredibly well. We’re finishing with rice pudding; comfort times two.
Have to complete the day with comfort knitting. Mari’s Poncho is coming along. It will be perfect for days like today when she’s stuck with cafeteria food instead of comfort food.
