the pugs are snoring, not softly as would be poetic and beautiful, but loud, wet snores as pugs are wont to do with their tiny turned up noses. the oscars are on, low so not to keep my brother awake. he had an exciting weekend and he got a new harley and went on his first ride today.
i didn't get my new bed and comforter set up today, but that is okay. there are other days. today i focused on my thoughts and puttering around the house. grocery shopping and cooking seem to be sunday activities these days. today was a pot roast. i did it a new way (to me) with searing the veg and meat before putting them in the slow cooker. such a simple thing but my oh my did it turn out delish. even me, the anti-onion girl loved the sweet onions that were fried in the olive oil and added in as a rich, deep base to the mix. it was a take-off on the pioneer woman's pot roast and tweaked to suit me. onion quartered, seared and softened. remove and add carrots - oh my how the browned carrots tasted so so so good. the the roast, generously salted and peppered and browned in a very hot skillet. tipped together in the crock (next time i will hold back the carrots a bit before adding as they got a bit mushy). add in a can of beef consume and a can of cream of mushroom. in the mean time, i cooked the mushrooms and added too. after a bit, i added in quartered baby yukon gold potatoes.
i played with flowers, washed clothes and watched some movies. 17 again was a good surprise - better than i expected. i feel almost dirty thinking how beautiful zack efron is. but man, he is a gorgeous boy.
hope you had the most beautiful weekend. while my wasn't the most exciting (in fact it was pretty mundane)...it was still just perfect. just perfect because i realize how very blessed that i am. and that is the most comforting thing ever.
now, i'm closing for real i've run on longer than i like. please tell me what you've discovered this weekend.
