The prompt for today is Roasted. I’ve always trusted my instincts whenever the first thought came to my mind for an idea when I was designing for broadcasting and my first idea was the ROAST BEAST.
When I was a kid, every day we gathered as a family and had dinner together. Home cooked by my Mom. On Sundays we had a roast beef with the gravy and mash potatoes. My Grandma taught my Mother how to put whole cloves of garlic deep inside the roast. Those were coveted slices of garlicky goodness. Carrots and onion filled the bottom of the pan, along with mushrooms! Yum.
When I had my own family we weren’t always able to sit around the dinner table every night due to sports, work and general busyness. I did cook. Eating out every night is expensive with two athletes in the house. Honestly, Taco Bell did have some moments. Although one night I made tacos and I heard from my youngest who was very diplomatic “Mom, I don’t mean to hurt your feelings, but these tacos are not very professional.” So cute.
I instituted Sundays as a day of nothing. No friends, no going anywhere, eating homemade food all day long, movies and no one had to get dressed. Everyone needs a down day.
