This was quilted with s.i.d. around the blocks, and along a lot of the embroidery. This quilt sat here for a while before I could tackle it, because of the cast and the need for me to hang on to a curved edge ruler for the quilting. Yeah, the blocks are all this cute.
The sashing has a pansy design quilted on it, although you really cannot see that on the front.
Yesterday I was flipping through recipe books to plan this week's menu, then went downstairs(*) to check on what was available in the freezer. Options: chicken or roast beef or bacon. I am not qualified to plan a meal around bacon, so Roast Beef was the final decision. This recipe is from a cookbook dated 1977 - probably before you could just go and buy a jar of teriyaki sauce. I always prefer home made but you could easily use the commercial stuff.
TERIYAKI ROAST BEEF - about 14 servings
1 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. light cooking oil
1/4 c. light molasses
1 Tbsp. ground ginger
1 Tbsp. dry mustard
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 6 lb. to 7 lb. boneless beef rib roast
- Combine the marinade ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Add the beef to the bag and marinate overnight in the refrigerator, turning occasionally.
- Remove roast from marinade, reserving marinade. Place roast, fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Roast at 325 to desired doneness (140 for rare - 3 hours, 160 for medium - 4 hours or 170 for well done - 4 3/4 hours)
- While the meat is roasting, baste several times with the reserved marinade.
- Remove roast from oven, cover with foil and let stand about 15 minutes before carving.
The roast I'm using today is MUCH smaller so I have altered the quantities accordingly. In the past I have done this in the oven, AND on the bbq. Today it's in the crockpot with carrots & onions. I put the marinade in the crock and added about an equal quantity of water, because the soy sauce makes this a bit salty.
(*) downstairs - I swear that one of these days I am moving the freezer up to the kitchen. You have no idea how many times I go downstairs to get something. I could put the dining room table downstairs in it's place, considering how often I use that.
