Beef en Cocotte with Caramelized Onions. Green Bean Tomato Salad. Roastd Smashed Potatoes.

... "Once in a blue moon, I decide to take an 'office day' at home to catch up on paperwork from being in field. I definitely needed it today. I really wanted to cook today and James was begging me have dinner ready before he got home from work. I put on my thinking cap and scrolled through my 'mental Rolodex' of recipes and put this together ...

Beef en Cocotte with Caramelized Onions: Top Sirloin Beef Roast. S & P. VO. Onion. Garlic. Dry Sherry. LS Chicken Broth. US Butter.

Green Bean Tomato Salad: OO. Parsley. Balsamic Vinegar. Garlic. S & P.

Roasted Smashed Potatoes: Red Bliss Potatoes. Water. EVOO. Thyme. S & P.

It's been three weeks since I used my kitchen to make anything - I haven't even made French press coffee nor used our Keurig! So, the feeling of using my own cookware and eating off our own plates gave me that 'warm fuzzy' feeling.

I'm not proud of this photograph - James and I were really hungry and we scarfed dinner down and I was rushed. After dinner, I had to pack up my bags and head to Indiana for the night. I kissed James and the dogs 'good night' and barged out the door with my gear. Before I got into my car and drove off, I turned around and looked at our front door. I smiled -- the feeling and satisfaction of a home cooked meal will always outdo a five-star dinner anytime." /wishes I make dessert
