Happy Easter

What a Meal! 
if I do say so myself! 

Long time readers might remember I was sick as a dog at Christmas, so today, we had  our Christmas dinner. And it was yummy! 

We had bought a standing rib roast in December because I had found a recipe on All Recipes.  The recipe was pretty strange but we decided to go for it. Basically it said cook the meat for 30 minutes at 375.  Then turn the oven off for 3 hours or so.  Then turn the oven on again to 375 for 20 minutes or so.  And the most important step -- don't open the oven at all! It worked wonderfully. If you'd like to try it here's the site: Foolproof Rib Roast from All Recipes.  The one thing we did that really enhanced the flavor was use McCormick's packaged spice called Montreal Steak seasoning. I put that on the meat before it went in the oven. And, to go with the meat  I made red smashed potatoes and fresh cauliflower.  Dessert will be lemon cake although we are too stuffed to have any now!  

Today would have been a great day to quilt but I wasn't in the mood.  I lazed around after singing at church this morning.  Every time I laid on the couch to read I fell asleep.  Hopefully tomorrow I will get some more blocks done on the wonky 9 patch.  

For those who celebrate I hope your day was wonderful.  

Happy quilting all!  Bonnie 


  1. I cook my standing rib roasts in the oven too, but not like that! I have to open the oven to throw in the taters, can't have standing rib roast without baked taters, LOL!

  2. I did smashed red potatoes with mine... on the stove.

  3. I have made my standing rib roast like that for about 20 years. I have never had one turn out badly!


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
