Pot Roast

Pot roast is such a great cold weather dish to make on the weekend.  Start it early in the day to let it cook low and slow.  Don’t rush it.  This cut of meat benefits from slow cooking.  You can even make it a day ahead and reheat it the next day.  We eat the leftovers all week long.

Corned Beef and Cabbage with Potatoes and Carrots

This is a great one pot meal that requires practically no attention, prep, or even spices.  Since the corned beef is already heavily spiced, it imparts flavor to all the other vegetables.  The few times I’ve made this dish I always wonder why I don’t make it more often.  It does take some time to cook, but very little attention is needed.  You could also prepare this meal in a slow cooker.

French fries are a classic sports food snack.  Add some sautéed garlic for a flavorful twist.  Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.  Although with the garlic and the sea salt, a dipping sauce is not necessary.

This is a great breakfast, brunch or dinner to make when you have leftover roasted potatoes.  You can customize to your own taste, or to whatever ingredients you have on hand.  If you have bacon, use some or you could use sausage.  I like cooking this so my eggs are sunny side up and runny, creating a sauce with the yolks.  If you prefer, you can scramble the eggs.  If you have peppers or onions, sauté them at the beginning of cooking.  This is a great “everything but the kitchen sink” dish.
