I really do try to cook well...

So I am really not the best cook, but I do try! Sat nite - I followed a roast recipe that was recommended by Whitney Caroline Designs. I really liked it, but I don't think my husband just absolutely loved it. He said it was good. But there was no "honey, you did such a good job on tis diiner. It was amazing." Of course that is what I would love to hear everytime I cook a meal.

But anyway, I liked the recipe and it is so easy - 3 - 4oz chuck roast, can of cream of mushroom soup, 1 envelope of onion soup mix, a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes, and 6 oz. of beer. Place the roast in the cooker, mix the ingredients together and pour over roast. cook on low for 8 hours. So easy!

Anyway, I would to find some more easy recipes that are not too high in fat that still taste good. Anybody want to share recipes? I will continue to experiement from my Southern Living Light and Easy Comfort Foods Cookbook will will be happy to share any recipes that I recommend.

By the way, I made pancakes for him this morning. Now I only used the Bisquick's shake and pour mix where you just add water. but I was proud of myself for not burning the pancakes! All Mr. M had to say was "Are you trying to make me fat?" Now I realize that pancakes are not healthy, but I was trying to be nice and show my husband that I love and appreciate him. When he finished his pancakes, I asked him to make me eggs! Now I am sure that you are thinking why would you do that? My husband has been in the restaurant business for like 15 years now and can cook pretty much everything and bake the best cheesecakes you have ever tasted. He is also very skilled at making omelets! If I made eggs, they would stick to the pan, and would end up with very little egg! So I figures since I made him breakfast maybe he could make mine. =)

I don't judge - that Bisquick stuff can burn pretty easily. Good work not burning the pancakes. Cooking is the best.
