So let me tell you about my day.  As I walked into work today, I was met by my assistant manager who handed me an egg & sausage McMuffin, out of appreciate for all of my hard work.  How can you not have a good day when it starts out like that. Right?  Then while I was working at my desk, one of my co-workers Gordon (the guy that gave me the venison that was featured in a previous blog) drops me off a doughnut.  What the heck is going on?  It’s like I am wearing a sign that says “Feed Me”.  Then while I am sitting at Jiffy Lube waiting for my car after work my dad calls.  He asks me if I want to come over for diner, being that Yuri made pot roast and scratch made cheesy garlic bread.  Can Barbra Streisand sing?  Heck yeah I’ll come over!  I though to myself that I should go buy a lottery ticket because how lucky can a girl get.  Needless to say I didn’t go buy a ticket for the mega millions but I did accept that invite for dinner!

Home made pot roast with potatoes, carrots, onions & celery

The pot roast was so tender you could cut it with a fork.  Yuri made it in the crock pot.  I’m not sure for how long or if it was on high or low, but it was delish.  Now, for the star of the show….the bread.

Scratch made cheesy garlic bread.  OMG!!!

Have you ever had the cheddar bay biscuits at Red Lobster?  This tastes like those but A MILLION times better!  The bread itself is very light, it isn’t incredibly dense.  The garlic permeates every inch of the bread but is not too overpowering, it’s just right.  And the cheese.  The glorious cheese.  It is melted throughout the loaf and on the bottom where it is slightly burnt but not charred is where the best flavor is.  While I was eating I used the bread to soak up the juice from the pot roast and it made it taste that much better.  I think I just made myself hungry all over again.  Yuri, I have to give you props.  You are an amazing cook and I appreciate every meal that you serve.  Most of the time after Yuri makes something she always says “This could have been better” or “The crust should have been firmer” or “This turned out to watery”.  Yuri, just stop it.  You are awesome.  Everything you cook is delicious.  The proof of that is that me, Kelly and dad are not skinny.  We eat all that you make because it tastes very good.  Thank you for feeding us, we love you for it.


Here’s the bread recipe if you would like to give it a whirl


You can see how the cheese is strewn throughout and the bubbles from the butter and garlic surfacing.  Also you can see the airiness of the bread.
This is the delicious surprise at the bottom of the bread!

    Pot roast isn’t far behind…that Yuri should be giving cooking lessons!!
