Holy Cow, can my sister Brenda cook a roast or what?

Last night we were there for my brother-in-law's birthday. Brenda slow cooked a beef roast on low temperature all day in her oven, and when she took it out the meat literally fell apart like she had made pulled beef for sandwiches. It was SO tasty! She spiced it just right, and added a whole can of Coca Cola and some water to the roast pan. I keep hearing about doing that, I must try it.

My hubby was unable to attend due to work and Brenda sent me home with some leftovers for him. It's sitting in my fridge.

And every time I open the fridge I don't WANT to save it for him. *I* want to eat it! LOL This could be the test of all time to how good a wife I am not. hehehe

We had a lovely visit, lots of laughs, and teased Rory endlessly about how OLD he's getting. What are good sisters-in-law for if not to be ruthlessly teasing him?

Brenda also sent sister Pammie and I home with lots of Avon samples. She's signed up to sell Avon on the side apart from her teaching day job. So on top of ordering a few things last night from her, I also came home with several perfume sample packets and some skin care sample packets. I often purchase some little things from Avon every Christmas for my sisters, I guess I won't be doing that now as Brenda will most likely be doing the same thing for us!

Speaking of which, you DO realize Christmas is only a little over 3 months away right? (do I hear "shut up already Jude!!" ??) **GRIN**

Only 2 more days left to vote over at Stardom Awaits! if you haven't already done so for the "Personal Favourite" photo contest!

Okay, I must get warpaint applied and do something with my hair. Today is grocery shopping day for hubby and myself. Now I've added a roast to my list. Oh, and a can of Coke. I think I may want to go duct tape the fridge shut first.....

Take good care of each other and have a peaceful week!

Love Jude

Sounds like a pretty good roast. I'm not that big on it but sounds like your ready to just devour it and then tell your husband how good it was. Maybe if your lucky he will share some with you. :)

Christmas yeah I know time is really flying. Stores around here already have Christmas stuff up and most of that was done before Labor Day. Each year Christmas seems to come earlier and earlier for us consumers. I really honestly wish they would wait until we get closer to Thanksgiving time.

Thanksgiving - yeah there is a food holiday if I ever had one. I am waiting for this + it's a 4 day weekend. Not too shabby! :)

You might need to do something with your hair but you don't need warpaint. That phrase "warpaint" always cracks me up.

Take care and enjoy another week of your vacation! Ah, what a life! :)

Thanks Jer you are too kind, but you haven't seen me without a little makeup on! Haha I have dark circles under my eyes that make me look like a zombie, LOL

I agree that every year the Christmas stuff comes out in the stores too fast. Our Thanksgiving is in October up here in Canada, and anytime after that I don't mind. Usually as soon as Halloween is over, the very next day the Christmas stuff is out. Sometimes just before...

Hope you have a groovin' week hon!

I've heard of using beer when cooking a roast, but never Coke. Sounds tasty!

Enjoy the week ahead, and hope you're enjoying your holiday time.

She used Coke and a brandy I think, which I don't have and don't really want to spend the money on. I'm looking forward to trying this!

Yes I'm enjoying my vacation so far, I've pretty much just slept and rested the first week, and now I've a lot to get done. :-)

Have a good week Bobbie!

Silly woman. What you SHOULD have done was eat all the beef before your hubby got home and never tell him you had it in the first place. Then he wouldn't have anything to miss!

Just goes to show how much you care for the man to not scarf it all down.

Oh Ye Of Little Knowledge! The only, I say ONLY reason it didn't get eaten before I got home was because I'd just pigged out on the stuff and I was full! LOL!

'Tis true however, that I care enough for him to let him have some. I even told him the next day that it was a test for me not to eat it up on him. *wink*

Have a grand week Rocker Guy!
