This is what it looked like after plucking off the small outer celery stalks.
All chopped and cleaned and ready to munch on.
First up.......the Barefoot Contessa's "Company Pot Roast". Time for an experiment.
While I was out picking the celery my neighbor was lurking in his backyard. We chit chatted about this 'n that and I told him that I was attempting a pot roast in my spanky new dutch oven. With that, he ceremoniously bent over and pulled a bunch of carrots from his garden. Cool!!! I am not much of a roast lover but hubby is so....this one's for you Mr.
With all the ingredients in place, today was the day.
Sweat those veggies.
Brown that beef.
Add those herbs.
....and we're off!
Suffice it to say that by the time it was ready I forgot to take a picture of the final dish. I was hungry and anxious to taste it. It was...mmmm....mmm.....good!
