Its an apple wine with cinnamon and nutmeg.
I just loved the bottle - wouldn't that be cute for a Halloween party?Sunday, Pops and Darren took down the old light fixture in the half bathroom and put up my new one while I made some lunch.
This is what the old one looked like.
This is the new one, and the new hole I have in the wall that Darren now gets to fix.I asked Darren if he could rip out the existing counter and put in the new on that we bought. I bribed him with a tasty home cooked dinner and he agreed. So, as he started in the bathroom, I got started in the kitchen. First, I pre-heated my oven to 350. Ok, wait - first I poured myself a glass of warmed Hallowine (the bottle suggested that I drink it warm). I honestly wanted to warm the whole bottle but I thought that might be a little tacky, so I just heated up a glass. Then, I heated up the oven to 350! Then, I chopped up an onion, some celery, carrots, cut up some baby white potatoes and minced some garlic. I took out my trusty Le Creuset dutch oven and put it on the stove, added some olive oil, took out a beef pot roast, seasoned it well with salt, pepper and garlic powder and then seared it well on both sides over medium high heat.
The roast was so tender and juicy, it just completely fell apart. Needless to say, it was delicious!
Even after all of that good food and company, I lost a little less than a pound when I went to Weight Watchers this week, so I am down 12.4 total.
This past week was pretty unventful. I made a new recipe - I'll try to post that sometime this week, because its so easy and delicious - I think y'all will like it.
Hope all is well with all of you!
