Leaving marks.

I survived date #3.

We ate at a hip diner amongst hip diners and I marveled at the sleeves of tattoos across from me.  I fought tears upon hearing his touching story of self-exploration and loss and sat next to him near our cars under the night sky wishing I could just lean in for a kiss already.  Instead, I offered to make him dinner.  It’s his birthday week.

I asked him what he’d like me to make. “Pot roast!” he said grinning.

Sadly, I have no idea how to make a pot roast.  So we settled on Brussels sprouts for sure and I’ll come up with the rest.

In the mean time, I’m realizing there’s more than one way to leave an impression.

  1. Congratulations on surviving date #3 – for the record, there was never a doubt that would you’d be able get through it ok.

    In regards to the pot roast, do you have a crock pot/slow cooker, if so it’s very simple to make using that cookware. All you need is the roast, a can of cream of mushroom soup, an envelope of onion soup mix, some potatoes, carrots, and green beans if desired. Much like surviving date #3, I’m confident you can cook a pot roast.

  2. I’ll contribute a recipe also, this is right up my alley?:
    Rub oil on the roast and sear both sides until nicely browned on medium high heat. Add 4 shallots quartered, 2-3 Yukon potatoes (salt and pepper) lower temp to medium and salt and pepper roast to taste. Cook until fragrant and potatoes begin to brown. Add can of San Marzano tomatoes, 2 cups of red or Chardonnay and a sprig of fresh thyme with a couple of bay leaves. Bring to boil and cook uncovered about 5 min. Cover and cook on med-low heat until tender, about 2 or 2 1/2 hours. Add a couple of tablespoons of butter to add gloss and extra flavor to sauce. DONE. Great over rice.

  3. Pot Roast will do it every time. Don’t forget assorted condiments like ketchup (other thing too). Mashed potatoes with garlic cloves (20) and a little salt, black pepper and enough butter. Brussels sprouts would be good with the foregoing.

  4. Go with the Pot Roast Hy – he will be super-impressed. You got this Girl!! I can also offer a recipe (SA style!!).
    And, we want pics of the meal please……

  5. The way to a man’s heart and most of his other parts is through his stomach. When someone cooks for me I get all appreciative. I hope it works when I cook for them. Preparing food to be eaten by someone special can be an intimate experience. Aroma, taste, and texture are in play at this point. Just be sure you don’t get a big green chunk of Brussels sprout stuck in your front teeth. You can do it!
