A Rose Recipe: Perfect Roast Beef - Also called how to please your mother in law
Perfect Roast Beef, as easy as pleasing your Mother in Law
Please feel pity for my husband who had to taste test all of my roast recipes before deciding which one was best
So one day my husband asked me why, after 8 years of marriage, do we always eat out when my mother in law comes for a visit....She is notoriously the sweetest person in the whole world, she is so sweet and kind that she doesnt want to argue, ever...about anything. So how could I explain that I never cooked meals for her visits because I didnt want her help cooking? I am very good at cooking, but she has different views on how well done the meat is cooked in every meal. So I gave in, cooked this beautiful roast dinner with a dip on the side. She took one bite, said it was divine! Then got up and microwaved her portion until is was shoe leather consistency.... I hope you like this more then she did!
