Sick of turkey

My body simply will not take another meal of food that’s been pent up in a recycled deli meat tub for days: poor reminders of the deliciousness that they once were.

I needed something substantial, fresh, lean, wintry but with nothing whatever to do with the holidays.

Pot roast. Allrecipes.com yielded a perfect recipe, designed for a 5-pound pot roast. I had no use for all that, but I did a 3.5-pound chuck roast that we could eat for a couple of days.

Besides the meat, it called for 2 10-ounce cans cream of mushroom soup, a pouch of onion soup mix, and 1 1/4 cups water. Just poured it all into a slow cooker and four hours later, we ate. It made its own gravy. I could have easily added chopped carrots and potatoes to the mix. And I should have tossed in some herbs, too, come to think of it. But it was pretty close to perfect just the way it was.

I also made a big batch of dinner rolls, some to eat and some to freeze. I’ll try to get that recipe to you soon. It’s just at home and I’m at work now.
