Sunday Dinner (Week 2/Day 3)

Here is our meal EVERY Sunday after church since I can remember. Only today, I made it and not my mother. Let me preface this by saying that my Mom is by far THE BEST cook I know. Everything she makes turns out and if it doesn't, you can bet we don't hear about it.
So, step one is putting a defrosted roast in my Pampered Chef stone. By using my stoneware, I elimiate the the browning step that I grew up with. (Yes, my Mom does this now, too.) Then I season it with rosemary from my herb garden that I dried and some other secret spices from my know, like pepper.
#2 - Next you peel potatoes and cut them in half and then half again...
Like so. #3 -Then place them in the stone as you see pictured here.
I arrange the potatoes around the edges and #4 - put the carrots in center, completely covering the roast.
#5 is adding garlic over it all - 4 or 5 cloves is what I like.
#6 - Adding water to my second knuckle. This is a very important rule. My Mom says!
#7-Put the "top" on to create a dutch oven effect.
This is also my 9x13 baker when not used as the top.

Cook at 250 degrees for 3-4 hours. In our case it's when we get home from church. Yes, I go off and leave the oven on. I trust God to protect my home from fire when I'm at church but I probably shouldn't since my Grandma's ranch home burned to the ground while she ran food down to the workers at her church some 25 years ago. Anyway, I do. (So does my Mom.)
#8 - cooked and deliciously moist roast!
And of course, sitting down with my family for our 1st year anniversary of moving in to our very own home.
