Well, I found myself a good local chuck roast. Salt & peppered both sides, seared it on all sides and browned some onions and garlic, de-glazed the pot with some red wine and then let it cook for hours until it fell apart. Then I added some potatoes, carrots & celery, let them cook and made a wonderful gravy.
While the roast was cooking, I thought I would try to find a new Peanut Butter Cookie recipe. I found the most outrageous recipe here at Smitten Kitchen. I have to admit that although I have her site in my reader, this is the first recipe of hers that I have made. The only change that I made to the recipe is that I used organic peanut butter.
