My friend that gave me this recipes says, "this roast is good with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed green beans and yummy yeast rolls. Sparkling Apple Cider is a nice touch for a "romantic dinner for 2!"



  1. Ooooh, that strata looks yummy! I found myself wondering if I had any pork sausage in the fridge so I could make it for dinner tonight, lol!

    I have given up pop so can't even have the decaf, bummer, huh?! But I know it's better for me so I'll survive.
