Dinner was all about my childhood. We had roast, white rice, asparagus and rice pudding for dessert.
I wanted to use one of those "buy one, get one free" roasts. My mother made this chuck roast with gravy that was delicious, except that it was a full of fat with that fatty piece of meat. I had a very lean roast. It was yummy.
Roast with gravy
2-3 pound roast
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 package dry onion soup mix
1 can water
Line glass dish with foil and top with roast. Pour soup, mix and water over the roast. Cover. Put roast in 300* oven for 2 hours. Serve with white rice.
Tuesday our phones did not work--our land line. It was thought that the problem was our actual phones. So, Saturday, we went to Costco and bought new phones. Still nothing works. I will be calling the phone company tomorrow afternoon. Then last night our washing machine died. I have to say I care more about the washing machine. It is a bearing and I will be calling Folsom Lake Appliance. They have been good to us in the past. I hate the Laundromat. Anyone have a spare washing machine???
I spent some time working on a square for a block of the month through my guild. The meeting is Thursday and we get our blocks back then. I fixed a block that turned out to be 10-inches unfinished instead of the 9.5-inch block I need. I also made the block due on Saturday. I am not happy making 8-inch blocks into 9-inch blocks, so I did another block altogether.
Off to bed soonfor another week of work.
