Today I have made dinner and what will be dinner and perhaps lunch for the rest of the weekend. I am looking forward to not doing much of anything this weekend now that food has been squared away for the babies and my hubby. I don’t know if we are going to go to the movies because there isn’t anything that really rates spending the bucks over movies that we could easily wait until they are out on DVD.
Dinner is roast beef with roasted potatoes and a gratin of spinach. The roast beef, I cooked to almost medium rare and I stuffed sliced garlic throughout small slits int the roast before putting it into a very hot oven for ten minutes and then I lowered the temperature to 350 for an hour. The gratin is a simple béchamel sauce with sautéed onions, spinach and grated Swiss cheese browned on top, the gratin is seasoned with salt, pepper and fresh nutmeg before going into a 425 oven for 25 minutes. The kitchen smells really nice now and it suits the weather quite well.
Jack of course will be taken for his walks, he needs them and the walks aren’t very strenuous especially since Jack likes to sniff at every blade of grass that he comes across. Other than that, I will be sitting with my feet up on the couch watching movies on t.v and reading from my iPad.
