Iwas in the mood for a nice dinner the other night. I didn’t want kid food anymore as I have that regularly for lunch now that the kids are home from school. I was ready for a meat and potato dinner with a nice salad and rolls. I had purchased a four pound eye roast and cut it in half, placing the other half in the freezer for future use. I decided to rotisserie the roast but only after I rubbed it with something, but what? Then it hit me, I remembered my new Chicago Steak Seasoning from Penzeys. I was very generous with that smokey smelling spice rub. While it was cooking, the smokey scent was causing me some serious hunger pains as it reminded me of the smoked meat I used to enjoy in North Carolina. The two pound roast only took 45 minutes for medium doneness or 160 degrees. While that cooked I made The Pioneer Women’s Crash Hot Potatoes. I did not use fresh herbs, even though I have them in abundance, I used Penzeys’ Sunny Paris instead. It was a grand slam home run. What amazing potatoes. Creamy on the inside and crispy on the out. The Sunny Paris was absolutely perfect, what a great blend for potatoes. I served this meal with a garden salad, rolls, and fresh fruit.
I want to show you a picture of my Rotisserie in action. Can you smell it? This George Foreman toaster oven has to be one of my favorite appliances. We use it daily for toast, muffins, snacks, pie baking, small cakes, broiling, and rotisserie. I have had it for two years without any trouble. Genuflect. Spit. Spit. Salt over the left shoulder, or is it the right? Darn. I don’t want to go jinxing myself, so I’ll whisper. This is a great little machine. If you have been looking for an extra oven then give this one a try. Yes it is big but it does a great job. No, I don’t own stock or get anything for this plug, if only.
Thanks Pioneer Woman for the great Crash Hot Potato recipe, I give you a Standing Ovation!
