We had mashed potatoes, carrots, broccoli and round steak.
Round steak isn’t something that I ever really cooked before we purchased this quarter of a cow and I’m having a hard time learning how to cook with it. It’s a tough cut so it likes to be cooked slow. The crock pot is all that I’ve found so far that makes it turn out good. I’m open to ideas if you want to submit them.
I made homemade biscuits to go with our meal. I have never made them from scratch before. The closest I’ve come is a Bisquick box. But I used whole grain organic flour and kneading the dough and everything. I think I kneading it too much as they turned out like hockey pucks, but you could slather a real hockey puck with rhubarb/strawberry preserves and I would wolf it down. As a biscuit they were edible. As a preserve delivery device they worked great. And the leftovers will be great tomorrow as biscuits and gravy after the gravy soaks into them and softens them up. MMMMM
This is the last local meal of the contest so you won’t see pics of the meals up anymore. Well, maybe you will once in a while, but not every week. Thanks for putting this together Liz. It was fun and I am definately not going back to the way things were.
