Can't think if a good title, so you get this instead.

We didn't go on a date. It ended up that when Gabriel and his brother got home, they had already made plans to send him home yesterday evening. I was rather let down. We all went to take him back and visit with Grandma and Grandpa. Everyone decided that it would be a good idea to go out for a fish fry, so we did end up doing something fun last night anyway. I over ate at the buffet. You know how you feel just full and stop, but 30 minutes later you are so over full you want to puke? OK, gross. We had a really good time and Mark was a doll. He has been so good the past week. He has been staying up way past his bed time for one reason or another and been so good about it. Not crabby or anything. And when we get home he runs to his bedroom to get his pajamas on. So cute.

I still want to go out on a date. Like a just the 2 of us date. I will have to see what I can come up with.

Gabriel will still be laid off next week, we think. Work is looking slow.

Right now the house is quiet. It hasn't been silent in over a week. Mark is down for his nap. Gabriel is still sleeping in. He has been working so hard and not getting much sleep. So I didn't have the heart to wake him up this morning. He needs to re-coop after spending 3 days busting his butt to re-roof the garage. His muscles have been so sore. I hope he feels better today.

It is the weekend. Yay, for the weekend. The family get together is at our house this week. I think that I will make a beef roast. I am usually leary of beef roast, because I can never make it turn out good. Does anyone have any good ideas or recipes for beef roast?

Up and down every 8 minutes. It is driving me bonkers. I can't concentrate enough to post about anything exciting. Why, you ask? Well, I guess I have a good trade off. I am making Chocolate Chip Cookies. Mmm. Want one?

I do not know when I last went on a DATE.

Roast beef...All I ever do is place the roast in a roasting pan then add potato, carrots and onions. Fill the pan half way with water, sprinkle pepper and rosemary on the top and pop it into the oven. Depending on size and that jazz at least 3-4 hours?!?!?! The water helps it remain moist..I just check it and go from there...oh yeah ummm 275-300 F for heat!

Pretty plain but it is the entire meal that way!

YES, I want one! :)

Chelle's recipe sounds good to me...I don't really know anything about cooking meat, but I did find a couple of good-sounding recipes before Easter (but hubs ended up cooking the roast his own way anyway). I can't seem to find the link, but let me know if you want me to e-mail you the recipes, since I have them saved to my desktop for future reference. :)
