For the love of food!

Ok so I know this is a silly one but oh my gosh I love food. Now that I am feeling better I am loving food again. Still not quite up for cooking grand meals every night but I do love eating them. I made my first roast the other night and loved it. I have helped make these before at family gatherings and such but never attempted it at home. So I got a really lean pork roast at CostCo and put it in the crock pot with yummy butter red potatoes and carrots with a bunch of seasonings and mushroom soup. yummy!!! the only problem was that it was not until 2:30 that I thought enough to put it in, soooooo two hours later I took it out put it in a pan and then put it in the over for a hour. I was worried that it might not work but it was juicy and delicious. Jason eat a lot of it and so did Tolson. I was very proud of my first roast. I bought a 10 lb bag of red potatoes and am trying to find some yummy things to do with them. If you have any great ideas let me know. I know that the picture above it not of a roast but I also found this Lemon cheesecake recipe and really want to try it. I 'll let you all know how it turns out. wish me luck!


  1. Yummy! Congrats on your roast! It sounds delish! (Seriously! You know how much that's saying!) The Lemon Cheesecake sounds good too! Let me know how it turns out. I was craving Cafe Rio Barbacoa yesterday...hopefully we'll be having some of that some day soon!!!

  2. I'll help you "try" the cheesecake out! :) You can make some roasted red potatoes. I just cut them up, put them on a pan, pour some melted butter over them (or olive oil) along with some salt, pepper, garlic powder and sometimes parm. cheese. Bake for about 30 minutes and they're done! That's basically what I did for that Christmas dinner and they turned out pretty good!
