Meal No. 2025: Weeknight Rump Roast
Last Tuesday night was a gathering of six for hanging out and for dinner. I tried a new roast beef recipe, since I seldom make roast beef, and I'm reminded of why I don't often make roast beef. But it was decent enough, with homemade gravy and mashed potatoes and squash casserole.
There was a dusting of snow the previous night, enough to create travel hazards and slick roads and Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools were on a 2-hour delay. My work that day had to be canceled so I had more time to invest in shopping and putting this meal together.
It also means I had time to make a dessert: classic yellow cake with chocolate frosting. It was really amazing.
