The pies sound good but yes more on the tomato and bacon.

The pot roast came out really good! We ate it for leftovers last night along with some Macaroni Grill leftovers. Maybe we'll have spaghetti for dinner tonight. I have some homemade sauce in the freezer. That sounds easy. I need to finish packing for the cruise.

....wfdt? Stracotto with porcini mushrooms and cheesy polenta....


Ingredients
1 (5-pound) boneless beef chuck roast
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil, divided
2 onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup red wine, such as cabernet sauvignon or pinot noir
1 (15-ounce) can low-sodium beef broth, plus extra, as needed
1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms
1 large sprig fresh rosemary, leaves removed and chopped
6 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed and chopped

Directions


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Pat the beef dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. In a heavy 6-quart pot or Dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until browned on all sides, about 12 minutes. Remove the beef and set aside.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining oil and the onions. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute until aromatic. Add the wine and scrape up the brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir in the broth and mushrooms. Return the beef to the pot and bring the liquid to a boil. Cover the pot and transfer to the oven. Cook until the beef is fork-tender, about 3 hours, turning the beef over halfway through and adding more beef broth, as needed.

Transfer the beef to a cutting board. Tent with foil and let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, spoon any excess fat off the top of the pan juices. Using an immersion blender, blend the pan juices and vegetables until smooth. Add the rosemary and thyme. Bring to sauce to a simmer and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Cut the beef into 1-inch pieces and place on a platter. Spoon some of the sauce over the meat and serve the remaining sauce on the side.

Note: The cooked pan juices and vegetables can also be pureed in a blender

Today is Wednesday and we normally go to my mother's for dinner. But she decided to take a last minute trip to China and we were left to fend for ourselves.

DH decided to cook tonight. He wanted some fried noodles. When I came home from work, he hadn't started any of the preparation and before I could even take my shoes off, he started to ask questions about what to do....and then what?......and then?.....how should I put the sauce together?.......and now what should I do?


*sigh* Guess who ended up cooking the fried noodles?







All I can say is that *DH* sure made a very tasty noodles!

You are obviously not familiar with their "pie night" tradition. I wish I had enough friends/family that we could do something like this, but with just the two of us, we'd have to eat it all ourselves!

Yes Fran makes a very tasty, "whatever" as well. I completely understand! Only 4 days now until we leave. It can't come soon enough. She keeps adding things to do. Black Friday shopping and who knows what....

So far this morning I have made the vegetable stock for the brine and assembled the brine for the turkey...






The brine is the stock, salt, brown sugar, allspice, peppercorns, and candied ginger...
