Pot roast (night #7)

We're on a three dinner winning streak--the baked fish, baked chicken, and now the pot roast (USDA guide, p. 21) were all great. Egg noodles, peas and carrots, orange slices, and left-over peach cake accompanied tonight's dinner.

Everything tonight was easy to make. The chuck roast for the pot roast got browned and then simmered for two and a half hours. The egg noodles were boiled for ten minutes; the peas and carrots were microwaved for about three, and did I mention that we had left-over peach cake.

We'll get left-over pot roast for the upcoming week. The rest of the menu is as follows:

What happened to the white bread?

White bread wasn't on the dinner menu for Sunday. We also found that we were getting plenty of food at some of the dinners without it, so we've left it off a few of those meals.

What wasn't consumed is gradually being used for lunches.
