Meat and Potatoes.

Last night, I made dinner FOR A MAN. Please click the link read Kalin's blog. She is hilarious!

001

I took 1/2 onion and 2 cloves of garlic and caramelized them. It was a slow process. I put the burner on low, added a tbsp of olive oil and stirred.

002

While the on-yons and GAAAAAHHLIC (a nod to Andy's grandma's southern boyfriend) did their thing, I put a pot roast in the oven with more onions. I was paranoid about cooking a pot roast. I kept checking the thermometer to see if the internal temp had reached 145*.

003

Of course, a pot roast cannot be complete without potatoes. I took these mini yellow potatoes and cut off the ugly bits. (I leave the skin on!)

For my mashed potatoes;

use 1 bag mini-yellow potatoes
1/2 cup caramelized onions and garlic
1/2 cup fat-free milk
a dash of half and half
salt to taste
pepper to taste
and 1 tbsp real butter.

The addition of the onions adds so much flavor. (Please feel free to substitute almond milk and earth balance if you are participating in Vegan Week (Or if you are a vegan!) And make some meatless meatloaf ala See Sarah Eat

I definitely could use more vegan meals in my life. But alas, I made pot roast. And it was SO GOOD!!!!

004

I was so happy with how this turned out. The pot roast had tons of flavor and the potatoes were spot on. I'm almost 100% irish so I know my potatoes. I loved these! I just wish I would have had some veggies on hand. I think some carrots, parsnips or green beans would have complimented this nicely.

005

But I digress, sometimes meat and potatoes is satisfying. Today I will focus on more veggies. I plan on doing something magical with a butternut squash and an eggplant.

3 things before I go.

1. My weigh-in last night wasn't as good as I expected. I lost 0.6. Which means I need to lose 0.4 to be at 10 lbs lost. Andy's birthday is on Saturday and I plan on sharing some sort of dessert with him...but I'm nervous. I plan on amping up the workouts!

2. Check out Lindsey's Give and Feel Good Challenge. I have been trying to do the dishes everyday. It's a way for me to give to Andy. I loathe doing dishes but it makes me feel good to do them for a change. Andy works so hard and deserves some sort of a break when he gets home!

3. Do you crave veggies? I always do after a few days of carbs, meat and starch. I'm on my way to drinking a big GREEN Amazing Grass Smoothie right now.

P.S. I am seeing New Moon friday! YAY!!!!!!!

My husband wouldn't be able to keep his hands off of me if I made him that meal!! lol! :) Poor guy - he loves meat and potatoes and I'm always feeding him spaghetti squash, pumpkin chili, and Hugh Jass salads! :) Hmmm, our anniversary is this weekend - perhaps I should pick up a steak for him... :)

I crave veggies too! Sometimes I steam one of those steamable bags and just eat the entire thing for dinner after I've had a high calorie lunch out.

Oh man, I know my man would be all over this meal! I am definitely making those potatoes soon.

NICE job on the meal- those potatoes look so yummy! Congrats on the loss thats exciting. I want to see New Moon so bad but I'm not sure I could handle seeing it Friday!!

My polar is an F6 and it wasn't too bad (my husband got it for my birthday off Amazon). The F11 has more capability but the F6 is really all I need :)

I just want to say right off how awesome is it that Andy's grandma has a boyfriend! Go Granz! :D

Meat and potatoes is where it's at. I may be more of an eater of produce than animal, but I am down with some good meat every one in a while. When potroast is good, it is damn good. :D
