And This Time I Mean It

Menu planning is really helping me. Josh even checks the blog to find out what to expect for dinner. That sort of backfires on him when he gets all psyched for something and I have a last minute change of plans…like how I’ve been saying we’d have those Jamaican Meat Pockets for the past three weeks and still haven’t gotten around to making them…or like how last week we never had pizza…

Quick review: The Beef Daube Provencal from a few weeks ago was really good. I chopped the meat up to small pieces to make it look like the picture from the magazine, rather than leaving it in big chunks. It was a good effect. Alicia’s Cranberry Roast was so amazing, Josh practically fell out of his chair. I think the reason we liked them so much was that I made them in my dutch oven – a crock pot approach would probably not be nearly as good.
