Tuesday - daylight savings still brutal  
I put a roast in the crockpot this morning, with potatoes and onions, a salt/pepper/various other seasonings rub, a couple of cups of beef broth and - because I was out of my usual worcestershire sauce - I took a page from kistha, and added a dash of red wine instead. On the way home, I intend to pick up a fresh loaf of french bread and some salad fixings.

I love crock pot meals. They're the easiest dinners ever, and they always taste so amazingly good.

Got a load of work related gossip from a co-worker this morning. WOW, I work in a dungeon. For weeks, stuff has been happening and I've had no clue! Apparently, there's a huge GIGANTIC kerfluffle that involves a bunch of people I really like, and I'm finding myself pretty befuddled at how it could have gotten this far with all of these great people. It's not like one of them is a supreme jerk and I can see exactly how something like this could have happened. I'm a little sad for everyone involved, who are all being very mum on the subject. I don't know details, just the results of "whatever" happened. Huh. I just hope all turns out as well as possible for everyone involved.

In other news, I'm writing. This feels like the neverending chapter, cause I ended up having to go back and delete about 2,000 words and rewrite it, but I'm liking how it's going much better. Yesterday's snippet is from the new stuff. The old stuff wouldn't have been snippet-worthy.

I get the dungeon effect, too.

Apparently there's all sorts of drama (professional and otherwise) at my workplace, and it all passes over my head.

Then again, I don't mind much :)

I have received news that it's even better the second day. :) I love crock pot food. Easy, peasy and oh so GOOD! I don't usually like roast (I use a round eye roast and remove the fat pad) but now I do.

Sorry people you like have had work trauma drama. Hope all goes well for everyone.

Soon, soon I will have crack! MuwaAHAHAHHHAHAHAH

Sadly, we are not likely to have leftovers. We host our weekly RPG tonight, and the friends coming over usually descend like locusts and eat everything. Seriously - I am amazed at how much they can and will eat. Mark gets grumpy because I fix these great meals, and then he gets none for his lunch the next day. I've taken to putting a bit aside for him before they arrive. ;) Hmm, I usually do a chuck roast myself. You mean a rib roast...?

Yes, the crack is moving apace. :-) Also, I read GG. Will call on my lunch, soon.

I used to only make roast when we had company since I wouldn't eat it. This was a major disappointment to dthon since we didn't have company really often. Totally set some aside. The boi deserves leftovers!

I don't like roasts that have a lot of fat in or around them. The eye round roast(had it backwards)is from the round cut, and looks like this: http://www.recipetips.com/glossary-term/t--36080/eye-round-roast-beef.asp

It has a thick pad of fat on the bottom (which you can't see there.) It stays together, but does get tender. I usually buy them in two packs at Costco.
