From Gloomy to Simple and Elegant

It has been a bit cloudy and rainy lately so in the words of Eyore,
"OH, What a gloomy day." Rather that let it get me down and adopt Eyore's mood, I decided to do something to brighten the day a little.

Since it was a bit chilly cooking something in the oven came to mind - What to cook? I thought a roast sounded good. In my hectic schedule I am always looking for something to cook that doesn't require a lot of time.

I peeled some potatoes then covered the roast with seasonings, onions, garlic powder, potatoes and carrots. Popped it into the oven. Fixed some frozen green beans with real bacon bits, onion and seasoning and began to let them cook on the stove.

Off I went to create.... Fun time, you know!

When all was finished I thought it would create a romantic, yet simple dinner to take a bottle of wine from the fridge and set the table with my good china. That I did.

What a Beautiful way to end a "gloomy" day! Eyore would say,
"OH, happy me!"

OK . Now McDonald's doesn't seem all that great a choice.

I can say first-hand the roast was fantastic! There is nothing like going back home for a meal from Mom.

Love you Mom.

Yummy! That looks so good!
I made a pot roast this evening, slice it and left it on a plate on the counter while the gravy thicked. My mini beagle ate about half of it before I caught her- you should see her fat little belly!

Congrats on your handbags in the magazine!
